Car Accident Details
Zuniga was driving his vehicle west on Harry Bridges Boulevard at around 7:20 p.m., according to the LAPD, when a pickup truck driver slammed into his car going in the opposite direction.
The crash occurred as the pickup truck was going at a high rate of speed, according to police. Zuniga’s body was pronounced dead on arrival by emergency personnel. Traumatic injuries were the cause of death, according to coroner’s records.
Meanwhile, the truck driver was arrested after the collision. Injuries sustained in the accident were minor. The investigation into the incident is focusing on whether alcohol and/or drugs were a factor.
Truck and DUI Related Car Accidents
Truck accidents are common due to the size of these vehicles. However, cases involving speeding are usually considered more dangerous because it can be hard for other motorists to avoid a collision or there could be severe injuries and fatalities as a result of the crash.
DUI accidents in California could have serious legal consequences because the state is known for its stringent laws. Thus, it’s important to gather as much information as possible after a collision so that victims are aware of their rights and what steps they should take in order to seek compensation for damages.
