Unlicensed Driver Arrested in Crash that Killed Four Kids

Motorists should be responsible enough and never drive without a license or insurance as this serves as their proof that they are capable of safe driving and financial stability to compensate motorists that may be harmed by their negligence.

A 34-year-old driver was recently booked on charges of vehicular manslaughter after he crashed into a vehicle containing four children in the Newhall Pass.

The three-vehicular crash along the southbound lanes of Golden State (5) Freeway started shortly before midnight when 53-year-old John Blackburn lost control of his pick-up causing it to spin out and hit a median before flipping over. Just then, an approaching Altima occupied by a driver, a woman, her three children, and her 12-year-old nephew failed to avoid the turned over vehicle.

A third vehicle, a Suburban driven by Victor M. Jarillo, then hit the Altima. Jarillo had three passengers at the time of the crash, including a toddler and an infant who were both taken to the hospital to be treated for their minor injuries.

Blackburn and the four children in the Altima died while the children’s mother, 27-year-old Yessica Milan, and the driver remains to be in critical condition.

Jarillo was an unlicensed driver and though he may be travelling at 50mph, he wasn’t legally allowed to drive and so he should be held accountable for all his actions.
