A drunken driver survived a fiery car accident in Bay Park this Saturday, the crash killed two passengers. The driver is said to be arrested after his release from a hospital, according to San Diego police Sunday.
Alcohol is an evident factor as the impaired driver veered his vehicle and swerved off Friars Road and struck a boulder. Around 7:30 am. the vehicle’s flames spread to the local brush.
The driver managed to escape the car and only sustained minor cuts and burns.
The families of the two women killed during the crash from Oceanside were notified by a medical examiner, their identities were not publicized.
According to a San Diego County Medical Examiner, a dog also died in the flames.
Friars Road has multiple S-curves in the area, authorities warn drivers to be cautious driving through the area of the crash, and to never drink and drive.
Almost 30 people die each day due to alcohol-involved accidents, this adds up to 1 death every 51 minutes by an alcohol-impaired driver, according to data collected by the Department of Transportation and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Sobriety Checkpoints, where law enforcement assess driver’s alcohol impairment, reduce alcohol-related crashes by 9%. Ignition interlocks, devices installed in the vehicles of previously convicted drunk drivers, prevent operation of the vehicle if the operator’s BAC is over state regulation. These locks are in relation with a 70% reduction in arrest rates for alcohol impairment. An exponentially more efficient method in reducing alcohol-impaired driving.

The U.S. Drought Monitor has recently released a heat map of the Northwest indicating the intensity of drought throughout the states. California’s recent above-average rainfall is expected to have minimal impact on the overall drought of the community. The report stated, “During the weekend, residual moisture associated with Hurricane Dolores fueled showers and thunderstorms across southwestern California and western Arizona leading to locally heavy rainfall accumulations and flash flooding, despite well-above-average precipitation in southern California during the past 90 days, recent rainfall has had little impact on the overall drought situation in the state.” The report says the three-month accumulation of rain in southern California had little positive improvement to the drought conditions of the state.
A recent report from the N.C.E.I. says the west is experiencing the warmest June on record. According to the report, “on a state level, California, Idaho, Oregon, Utah, and Washington all experienced their hottest average-temperature Junes on record since 1895.” Continuous deficits of rainfall through the region causes concern for crops in Eastern and Central Washington.

One worry of small business owners, whether they are starting or already running a small business, revolves around their call for a business attorney.
Many entrepreneurs do not have much in support of extra capital and usually hire a business attorney when confronted with serious legal problems. Business attorneys have a working knowledge of many issues, from employment law to copyright and trademark infringement to tax law.
While most of these matters can be handled by any business owner, there are times when a business faces issues that are too difficult or time-consuming, and at this time a business attorney is an intelligent move.
Some examples of when a business attorney would be practical include a time when prospective, former or current employees are suing because of discrimination in hiring, firing or hostile work environment. Other examples include investigating the business for violation of any laws or environmental problems.
California business attorneys also assist companies in negotiations, arbitration, business formation, business litigation and disputes, fundraising and mergers and acquisitions.
Also, the attorneys can lend a hand in business planning and startup counseling. For example, our business attorney in San Deigo can rally round the liability with being a director or officer of a company. Furthermore, legal issues and the law involve matters of state and local law when people think about California state laws.
For example, the Governor’s Office of Business Development and Economic Development says many state agencies develop regulations that impact small businesses in California. Included among the agencies are the Board of Equalization, California Environmental Agency, Department of General Services, Franchise Tax Board and Bureau of Automotive Repair, among others.
California laws are shaped by statutes and the courts while some laws are determined by the voters. The services of a business attorney, with all the diverse services they provide, can be critical to a business, small businesses, in particular.
