Three People Killed in Vernon Hit-and-Run Accident
James E. Ballidis
Last Saturday night, three people were killed in a hit-and-run accident in Vernon. The driver of a Dodge struck a Honda carrying Rafael Chavez-Rodriguez, 30, Jessika Quinonez-Gonzalez, 25, and Amanda Samayoa, whose age the Los Angeles County coroner has estimated to be about 70. A 6-year-old boy who was also riding in the vehicle survived the crash. The driver of the truck fled the scene but was later apprehended. He faces charges of felony hit and run and driving while intoxicated, explains a California personal injury lawyer.
Statewide, alcohol was a factor in 1,239 of the 3,113 fatal and 19,659 of the 170,496 injury motor vehicle traffic collisions in 2008, according to the California Highway Patrol. Los Angeles County accounted for 258 of the fatal and 4,832 of the injury accidents involving alcohol, more than any other county in the state. 2 of the fatal and 102 of the injury crashes occurred in Vernon.
The Los Angeles Times originally reported this hit-and-run accident.
