Drunk driving is one of the leading causes of vehicle accidents today because it prevents a driver from thinking clearly and also impairs his or her ability to operate the vehicle properly.
In fact, a 28-year-old female driver who is suspected to be under the influence of alcohol hit a concrete wall in Ventura County, thus causing serious injuries to herself as well as her 23-year-old passenger.
According to reports, Suzann Bridges, from Encino, was moving north on Vineyard Avenue in Saticoy when she suddenly went through an intersection along Highway 118 and smashed into the wall.
The driver and her passenger who was identified as Josephine Razo, from Camarillo, needed to be extricated from the vehicle. They were then rushed to Ventura County Medical Center to receive immediate medical treatment.
Authorities said both of them suffered from internal injuries. It is fortunate that these injuries appeared to be non-life threatening.
The driver was then arrested on suspicion of DUI. It turned out that she is supposed to be arraigned the following week on a misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license. What is more surprising to know is that her license was earlier suspended due to DUI.
