How a friday night in San Diego county can lead to Felony California DUI charges if alcohol is involved in a serious accident causing major injuries, attorneys warn

A suspected serious DUI accident took place in North San Diego County at 11:54 PM Friday Night December 7, 2012, at Mar Vista Drive and Thibodo Road, Vista, California, attorneys are told.

San Diego Sheriff's Department Vista Traffic & California DUI police units responded around midnight to an injury accident involving a Toyota RAV-4 which was allegedly traveling at high speed on Thibodo Road, local DUI defense lawyers are told by the San Diego Sheriff's Department.

The driver of the Toyota apparently lost control and rolled over, hitting a number of trees alongside Mar Vista Drive.

The driver and passenger were transported to Palomar Medical Center for evaluation and treatment of their injuries.  Unfortunately, the passenger in the Toyota sustained serious injuries.

Alcohol and/or drunk driving is suspected to be a factor in the San Diego California accident.  And not just because it was almost midnight on a friday night.

The purported San Diego California DUI investigation continues, lawyers are told.  If prosecuting DUI attorneys in the North Judicial Division of San Diego Superior Court files drunk driving charges, it will be a FELONY.

This is another reason not to drink any alcohol before driving a vehicle this holiday season, say attorneys.

Dallas Cowboys Defensive Lineman Josh Brent was arrested early Saturday morning on charges of intoxicated manslaughter.

Practice squad, University of Illinois teammate & Cowboy teammate OLB Jerry Brown was killed in the crash as the passenger in Brent's car. Brent allegedly was traveling at a high rate of speed then hit a curb and flipped his car. Brent was taken to the hospital for a DUI blood test.
