If they don't do background checks, or didn't because now they will, then what responsibility do they have for some jerk's decision to get drunk, drive, hit someone AND then take off. I guess if he was actually on the clock then they may have some liability but if he wasn't then it lays all with him. Not to blame her but I'm also curious if she was drunk and stepped out in the road in front of the car, that happens all too often as well. Regardless, the family is looking for money to pay her bills and this is where they see the deep pockets. It's sad to try and benefit from her death. As an adult she likely was responsible for her own finances and her parents have no liability anymore, and the bills, big as they are, could be dismissed due to her death.

On Freeway Closed at Castillo Due to Triple-Fatality DUI Crash
Posted on April 22 at 6:52 a.m.
None of us can say if we would have seen the car, on it's roof, perhaps with it's side facing you in the dark, in time to stop when you come around a corner on the freeway late and night to encounter it. Because she was DUI we all assume that she has fault, and she has fault of hitting something that was in the road before her. Will she be determined to be at fault for their deaths? I would have to say that a large part of that fault will likely fall with the driver of the car that they were in that crashed and the fact that the driver of that car is still alive, while the rest in his car perished, 2 having been ejected which indicates that they were not wearing seat belts. Everything about this one stinks and is sad. Would the DUI driver have had any issues getting home that night if there were not a car upside down on the freeway that she struck? Who knows... she may just be guilty of DUI, which is not okay, but is not the same thing as causing an accident that kills people. That's why the freeway was shut so long, it's not a simple matter of determining fault and that is going to be a big issue down the road when the families of the deceased young people sue.

I believe that all of the off ramps need to have those "wrong way" tire poppers on them so that if people get on the wrong way they can't do this type of stuff...

This lawyer is going to help him sink, not swim... already too much bad press and judges don't like that guy so if this scumbag wanted a good attorney he made a big error. Works for me, means that he won't get off as he hopes.

There is no story folks, nobody else is saying what they saw or what happened that I can find and don't see a story on KEYT about it at all... what happened? Of course I want to know if he was attacked or if he was contagious or if it was a self inflicted injury or if there is a danger of some sort, this is my town and I go to that Starbucks at times. What happened? It feels like it's a secret and that is disconcerting.

Clearly more to this story... a teenager that is friends with someone I know was there, and didn't know what was going on but posted this on facebook that morning, " i was in starbucks before school & like i was waiting for my coffee and i looked over and there was a giant puddle of blood on the floor and there was this homeless man and his leg was bleeding really intensely and he was losing a lot of blood and it was really scary & he was yelling at the people who work at starbucks saying that he didn't want them to call the hospital because "if god wanted him to lose his leg then god didn't want him going to a hospital" and im still in shock because of it. i had to leave because i was gonna be late for school but the last i saw was him yelling at the starbucks workers and one lady trying to call 911:

I completely agree with SBLover and am sad that they are trying to sue for something like this, it will only cost the city money and that's my taxes. I'm glad he didn't have a chance to hurt anyone else

Yes, I agree Draxor! Enough things in his history show that he is not a good guy, it's not accidental coincidence.

A person chose to drink too much, then drive, then when he struck someone he fled. Nothing about this is anyone but that person's fault, he made those choices, nobody made them for him. My company party provides alcohol, we actually have an open bar and some people get quite drunk, but they choose to take taxis or pre-arranged transpo so that they COULD drink, it's a choice. Nobody's fault but the guy that drove.
