Andrew Gallo, Drunk Driver Responsible For Fatal Crash, Found Guilty
Posted on Sep 27, 2010
This morning an Orange County jury found Andrew Thomas Gallo, the drunk driver responsible for the fatal, Fullerton car accident that killed Angels' rookie pitcher Nick Adenhart and two others on April 9, 2009, guilty of three counts of second degree murder, two felony counts of driving under the influence causing great bodily injury, and one count of felony hit-and-run. He faces a prison sentence of 55 years to life.
Two weeks ago, when the trial began, an Orange County accident attorney offered an account of the accident and discussed why Gallo had been charged with second-degree murder instead of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.
The Orange County accident attorneys at Allen, Flatt, Ballidis, and Leslie would like to offer their condolences to the families of Nick Adenhart, Courtney Stewart, and Henry Pearson. They would also like to wish Jon Wilhite a full recovery from the injuries he sustained in the accident. Resources for the victims of drunk driving accidents can be found at the Office for Victims of Crime.
Additional information on drunk driving and accident victims' rights is available to the public free of charge.
