Eastbound I-10 In Los Angeles Shut Down After Shooting, Police Cruiser Collision

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

MID-CITY, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Officers are investigating a chase and shooting involving a Ford Mustang and a police cruiser.

At around 3:15 am, a silver pickup truck shot into a Ford Mustang, striking the passenger in the car.  He was transported to an area hospital with a wound to the neck and is listed in stable condition.  The driver exited the freeway, and authorities proceeded to shut down the freeway to investigate.  As some of the officers were navigating and detouring traffic, a suspected drunk driver hit one of the police cruisers.  Officers were not located in the vehicle and weren’t injured.  The driver of the other car who collided with the police cruiser was arrested at the scene.

This shooting could have been compounded into more tragedy had the police officers still be in the vehicle.  Auto collisions occur for any number of reasons – Drunk driving, hit and run, losing control of the vehicle, and distracted driving.   Some injuries may lead to long-term ailments requiring pain medication, therapy or loss of function. You may require time off work to recover from injuries completely and those costs are not likely part of the settlement they will offer you.

Leisure World Drunk Driver Arraignment In Death of Robert Dillon

Friday, July 20th, 2012

SANTA ANA, California—Dale Snyder Quinn, a 75-year-old woman accused of having a blood alcohol content level of .22 percent, will be arraigned Friday morning for crashing her car into an 86-year-old man and killing him at an intersection inside Leisure World in Seal Beach.

According to the Orange County District Attorneys’ office, Quinn is accused of failing to stop at an intersection inside the Leisure World complex at approximately 5:40 p.m. on May 20, 2012. The defendant ignored three marked stop signs and two pedestrian-crossing signs and slammed into 86-year-old Robert Dillon who was crossing the street on his battery-operated scooter, said a spokesperson from the D.A.’s office.

Dillon was thrown from his scooter on impact and was transported to a hospital where he died eight days later from his injuries, said a D.A.’s  office spokesperson. Quinn was found sitting in her car and police say she displayed signs of intoxication including slurred speech, watery eyes and emitting an odor of alcohol.

Dale is charged with one felony count of vehicular manslaughter by lawful act that might cause death with gross negligence while intoxicated and if convicted, the D.A.’s office says she faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in state prison.

“There is no excuse for driving under the influence,” said Attorney West Seegmiller, founder of the Seegmiller Law firm. “Those who drive drunk and endanger the lives of others need to be held accountable for the damage and destruction they cause.”

Nationwide there were 10,228 deaths attributed to alcohol impaired driving in 2010 and while the numbers are staggering, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reports that deaths from drunk drivers were actually down nearly 5 percent in 2010 compared to 2009.

For roughly 30 years, the legal experts at Seegmiller Law Firm have represented hundreds of clients who were injured in serious traffic accidents or have lost a loved one.  Our law firm has a proven track record supported by settlements ranging from several thousand dollars to millions.
