Los Angeles DUI Crash
We are deeply saddened to hear of this tragic accident. One of the most irresponsible decisions a driver can make is to get behind the wheel while impaired. Impaired drivers have a slowed reaction time and an inability to appreciate the risks of driving. This leads to substantially increased danger to everyone else on the road.
At this time, it appears that Sherry Kisch will be held responsible for the wrong way crash. In additional to criminal punishment, Kisch faces civil liability in personal injury and wrongful death cases from the victims and their families.
