The CHP reported that a 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix, driven by drunk driver Tyree Anthony Nelson, was traveling northbound on Sierra Highway when he collided with a Ford F-750 around 3:40 p.m. The 5-year-old girl was a passenger in the Grand Prix when it veered into oncoming traffic.

The CHP stated that the 5-year-old girl was pronounced dead at the scene while Nelson and his other passenger sustained minor to major injuries. The driver of the F-750 suffered a cut to his head. Nelson was arrested on suspicion of being under the influence of drugs.

“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 everyone,” said the attorneys from Lexton Law Firm, a California car accident and personal injury attorney.
