Baldwin Park, CA (February 20, 2020) – Early on Wednesday morning, February 19th, a car crash triggered by a suspected DUI driver claimed the life of one person in Baldwin Park. The fatal accident was reported along the Interstate 10 Freeway at approximately 4:00 a.m.
According to officials with the California Highway Patrol, 57-year-old Ana Guillen, of West Covina, was traveling west along the freeway in a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe SUV when she was sideswiped by a 1993 Nissan pickup, just west of Francisquito Avenue. The impact of the collision forced the Nissan to spin into the middle of the freeway where it collided with a 2018 Honda Accord being operated by 37-year-old Luis Uribe, of Covina.
Emergency crews arrived at the scene where the driver of the Nissan, identified only as a 55-year-old man from Montclair, was pronounced deceased. Paramedics transported Uribe to a nearby hospital with a fractured back. Guillen was not hurt in the collision but arrested on suspicion of DUI. Authorities with the CHP are in charge of the investigation into this crash.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the family of the deceased victim. Our thoughts are with Luis Uribe and his family in hopes of a full recovery.
An increase in DUI related fatalities was reported during the year 2016, according to an Office Traffic Safety report. Due to the neglectful nature and utter reckless actions of intoxicated drivers, it is not surprising that so numerous California car accidents involving a DUI driver frequently end with total devastation. During such a difficult and unfortunate time, it is crucial for victims and their families to understand their rights.
