California DUI & drunk driving criminal defense attorneys at www.SanDiegoDUIhelp.com report that a 16-year-old boy is under arrest for causing a fatal accident while drunk and then fleeing the scene, according to authorities.
The California Highway Patrol says the juvenile, who has not been identified because of his age, was allegedly driving a 2000 Ford Mustang at 80 miles per hour in a 40 MPH zone on Cottage Way late Friday night. The boy failed to stop at a red light and broadsided 58-year-old Aman Khanna's car on the driver's side, killing Khanna instantly.
The boy allegedly fled on foot, but was arrested a short time later at his house. The CHP maintains that witnesses to the crash identified the boy as the driver and sole occupant.
The juvenile was arrested and charged with gross vehicular manslaughter, felony DUI, felony hit and run and driving without a license, according to California DUI & drunk driving criminal defense attorneys at www.sandiegodrunkdrivingattorney.net/articles.
