Daly City man turns himself in for fatal car crash

Any time a person faces serious charges for a fatal car accident, it’s important to be sure he or she is fairly represented in court. Many times, a jury or a judge can be harsh on someone who allegedly caused a fatal accident, no matter what the circumstances were.

A 25-year-old man from Daly City recently turned himself in for a May accident that killed three of his passengers. He faces charges of vehicular manslaughter and felony hit-and-run, since police say he fled from the scene after the crash. Toxicology reports are pending that can determine whether drinking and driving or drugs had been the cause of the accident.

Authorities say the driver crashed into another car in Colma, which veered into a cemetery. Neither of the occupants of the second car were seriously hurt. However, the first car had been cut in half by the force of the crash, and three passengers were thrown from the vehicle. They were all pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the driver ran on foot from the accident, although he later turned himself in. If the reports come back that he had been driving while intoxicated, it’s likely he will face additional charges. An accident of this nature resulting in a DUI charge can carry severe penalties. Whether the driver had been under the influence, or had made a poor driving decision that resulted in a tragedy, he faces serious consequences and will most likely need the help of a defense attorney to explain his options.
