Walnut Creek, CA – Ranya Ramey Charged with DUI Following Serious Crash

Ramya Ramey DUI AccidentWalnut Creek, CA (August 13, 2018) – A serious DUI accident took place on Sunday in Walnut Creek.  Around 4:00 am 18 year old Ramya Ramey was operating a 2000 Honda Civic in the eastbound lanes of Highway 24.  Ramey lost control of the vehicle, allowing it to go completely off the roadway.  After leaving the road, the vehicle flipped over, causing major damage.

At the time of the crash, there were three passengers in Ramey’s vehicle.   Two 18 year old men died at the scene, while an 18 year old woman from Oakley suffered serious injuries.  She was taken to John Miur Medical Center for treatment.  Ramey, meanwhile, is in the hospital with injuries considered serious but not life-threatening.

Following an investigation, Ramey was charged with DUI along with two counts of felony manslaughter for the deaths of her passengers.  The accident is pending further investigation.

Southern California DUI Accidents

This DUI accident highlights many of the dangers of drinking and driving.

DUI remains a major problem across California, with numbers of those killed or injured in DUI accidents increasing slightly over the past few years.  In a DUI crash, anyone can be affected.  In some cases, it is other innocent motorists, while in other cases it may be the driver or their passengers.  Sadly, two passengers died in this crash.  Riding with an impaired driver is just as dangerous as operating a vehicle yourself while under the influence.

Further investigation will determine why the vehicle left the roadway.  Following this investigation, the family members of the deceased victims may bring a wrongful death lawsuit against the driver.  In California, when a Los Angeles DUI crash results in death, it is evident that negligence occurred somewhere.  This negligence is the basis behind the lawsuit.
