The accident happened around 1:55 pm at the intersection of Elm Avenue and Metz-King City Road. A 2001 Honda Accord driven by a man under the influence of alcohol was heading eastbound on Elm Avenue when it crashed through a locked gate to a bridge, striking three pedestrians. The impact forced all three pedestrians into the water below.
Two of the pedestrians were able to make it to shore and were rescued and rushed to Natividad Medical Center. The third pedestrian remains missing at this time; search and rescue crews are still attempting to find them. The driver of the vehicle, identified as Nicanor Sanchez, was arrested for DUI. The investigation is ongoing at this time.
“It’s unfortunate that motorists under the influence disregard the negative effects that may ensue from driving under the influence. Drunk drivers continue to endanger the safety of all other drivers and pedestrians,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm, a California car accident and personal injury attorney.
