Broken down car hit by California DUI suspect

California DUI Attorney news

Two women were injured Monday night when their car broke down on the 22 freeway and was struck by a car driven by a suspected California DUI drunken driver, according to California DUI Attorneys.

One of the women, who was getting out of the disabled car as the California DUI crash happened, suffered major injuries, said California DUI lawyers.

Reyna Poblanu, a 47-year-old resident of Anaheim, was driving a 1995 Mercedes-Benz on the eastbound 22 when the car came to a stop in the two right lanes before the City Drive exit.

Her passenger, Feliciana Aldapa, a 34-year-old woman from Anaheim, was getting out of the car at about 10:47 p.m. when a 2007 Toyota hit the Mercedes.

Aldapa suffered major injuries in the California DUI crash. Poblanu suffered moderate injuries.

The driver of the Toyota, Dong Kim, a 45-year-old resident of Fullerton, and the two women were transported to UCI Medical Center.

Kim was arrested on suspicion of California DUI.

It is unknown why the car became disabled on the freeway but California DUI Attorneys will be looking into it.
