A man in Paso Robles has been rearraigned and is facing three felony charges from a car crash he caused on Highway 101 near Ventura, CA.
In the crash, the man, Jeremy White, killed one man, Andreas Parra, 20, and severely injured another, California Highway Patrolman Anthony Pedeferri, 36. Officer Pedeferri has been with the CHP for over 11 years and is an accomplished tri-athlete. He is currently in the hospital for rehabilitation
The charges the young man, only 20-years-old, face are gross vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence, causing an injury and refusing to take a chemical test, and selling/transporting marijuana.
Also, he faces several allegations including causing great bodily injury resulting in brain injury and paralysis, and causing injury or death to more than one victim.
At the scene, White refused to take a drug test but was forced to later on. At his hearing on April 1, forensic scientists testified that the drug Ecstasy was found in White’s blood, as well as marijuana.
White’s bail is currently held at $250,000.
There were 16,885 alcohol-related fatalities in 2005 – 39 percent of the total traffic fatalities for the year.

Don’t Let Your Statute Of Limitations Run Out
In California, the law imposes a statute of limitations, which sets a maximum amount of time that legal proceedings can occur after the date the incident. Each year at our Law Office, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases, only to find their statute of limitations has run out. It is one of the most difficult things for me to tell them I can’t help because they waited too long.
