At about 9:20 p.m. on Saturday, October 25, 2014, 18-year-old Roberto Rubio was killed in a DUI crash in Santa Ana, reported the Los Angeles Times. Twenty-three-year-old Herbert Calderon Granados ran a red light while driving under the influence and broadsided a Honda at Bristol Street and Central Avenue with his Lexus, the impact sending the Honda into a pickup truck. Rubio, a passenger in the Honda, was pronounced dead at the scene. Emergency responders transported the driver of the Honda and two passengers, along with four passengers in the Lexus, to hospitals to receive treatment for their injuries. Authorities arrested Granados, who is suspected of driving on a suspended license for a previous DUI conviction, on suspicion of drunk driving. 


Motor vehicle collisions claimed the lives of or caused injury to 1,627 people in Santa Ana in 2011, according to the California Office of Traffic Safety’s most current crash data. Alcohol was a contributing factor to 128 of the fatal and injury accidents. Drivers under the age of 43 were involved in 66 of the collisions. In a comparison with 12 other similarly sized cities, the OTS ranked Santa Ana 6th for crashes, 8th for DUI accidents, and 11th for collisions involving young drivers; 1st place is the worst possible ranking


When a drunk driver seriously or fatally harms others, the victims or their families may file personal injury or wrongful death claims against the driver in order to hold him or her liable for the expenses related to their recoveries or losses.
