Jorge Perez and Beatriz Castillo were killed in a car crash on the 60 Freeway on Saturday night. Their car had been involved in a minor collision with a tractor trailer which left them in the center divider. Shortly thereafter, Salvador Tamayo's Ford pickup truck slammed into the back of the stranded Honda causing the Honda to lurch forward some 200 feet ultimately coming to rest with the pickup truck on top of the Honda. Both occupants of the Honda were killed in the collision and Tamayo was arrested for felony drunk driving.
Injruies caused by drunk drivers can give rise to punitive damages or damages sought specifically to punish the wrongdoer for their conduct. Although nothing can bring back the lives that have been lost, victims of drunk drivers should at least speak to an attorney about their rights to recover money for their losses.
