Police say an alleged drunk driver crashed through a gate at the Orange County Fire Authority on Tuesday evening, hitting a light pole and toppling the OCFA's Eternal Flame Memorial. The driver, who suffered minor injuries to his foot, is expected to be taken into custody for driving under the influence. While this incident involved only minor injuries and damage to property, drunk driving accidents often result in serious injuries and death to other drivers, passengers and pedestrians.
If you sustained injuries in a car accident that was caused by an irresponsible drunk driver, you should consult an Orange County accident attorney to discuss the details of your case. You deserve compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and the pain and emotional trauma caused by the crash. In addition, if the drunk driver was under 21, our experienced accident lawyers may be able to help you seek compensation from the bar or restaurant that served alcohol to the minor under California’s “dram shop” laws.
