A Sacramento woman was killed by a suspected drunk driver, California Highway Patrol officials said Tuesday.
The 38-year-old mother of 5 had just left her apartment in the 9100 block of Madison Avenue when, around 7:15 pm, she was t-boned by the suspected drunk driver.
Authorities said that a white Ford F-350 pickup was heading eastbound on Madison when it veered off the road and into the victim’s vehicle. The truck hit the victim on the driver’s side, causing the vehicle to spin and come to rest in a grassy area.
CHP officials said that the driver of the F-350 lost control of his vehicle in the rain. He was later treated at a hospital for minor cuts and scrapes. Afterward, he was booked into the Sacramento County jail on felony charges of vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene of the incident.
The mother of five leaves behind her husband and five sons, all between the ages of 4 to 11.
We here at the Law Offices of Moseley Collins express our deepest sympathies for the victim’s family.
