At about 1 a.m. on Thursday, March 28, 24-year-old Ross Meyers and 25-year-old Joey Kerney were injured in a DUI crash in Napa. While traveling southbound in the 6100 block of Wild Horse Valley Road, Meyers lost control of the 1998 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck and veered from the roadway, causing the truck to roll over. Emergency responders transported Meyers and Kerney, a passenger in the vehicle, to an area hospital. Authorities arrested Meyers on suspicion of driving under the influence.
“When a crash causes injury, the victims may pursue personal injury claims against the negligent driver in order to be compensated for their recovery-related expenses,” explained California car accident lawyer James Ballidis.
The city of Napa accounted for 1 of the 9 fatalities and 301 of the 808 injuries suffered by motor vehicle occupants in crashes that occurred in the county in 2010, according to the California Highway Patrol’s Statewide Integrated Traffic Records System. Alcohol was a contributing factor to 54 of the crashes that resulted in injury or fatality in the city that year.
All of us at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to wish a full recovery to Ross Meyers and Joey Kerney.
The Napa Valley Register originally reported this DUI crash.
