VISTA, California – A repeat drunk driver accused of killing a motorcyclist after he drove against traffic on the Interstate 15 freeway Saturday has been scheduled for arraignment in court on Wednesday, according to a Valley News article.
Brian Joseph Webb, 24, of Murrieta, who is accused of driving with a suspended driver’s license at the time of the crash, was arrested shortly after Saturday’s head-on collision on charges of gross vehicular manslaughter, hit and run and drunk driving with a prior conviction.
The crash took place about 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. Webb was driving a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 truck when he allegedly entered the northbound I-15 freeway’s Del Lago off ramp from the wrong direction. The truck crashed head-on into Robin Vaughn, 60, of Escondido who was riding his 2002 Harley Davidson northbound in the same lane.
The truck killed Vaughn upon impact. The retired neurophysiologist had been married for 40 years to his wife Donetta and had five children and 15 grand children, according to the article. The couple were Mormons and were about to embark on an 18-month service mission with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, according U-T San Diego report.
