dui crash

A Santa Barbara County man has been sentenced to ten years in prison for a fatal DUI crash. Prosecutors say Bryan Charette’s blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit when he lost control of his vehicle, and hit an oncoming car.

A DUI driver who caused a crash which left two women dead in Santa Barbara County is going to spend at least the next two decades behind bars.

Santa Barbara County prosecutors say Cameron Wesley Oliver entered guilty pleas to multiple charges, including second degree murder.

A man has been sentenced to seven years in state prison after being convicted of a DUI related collision which killed a Ventura County high school student, and injured two others.

Prosecutors say Mario Arjon of Ventura was speeding near Rio Mesa High School in Oxnard when he slammed into a vehicle which had been slowing, and triggered a multi vehicle accident.

Rio Mesa student Fernando Buenrosto was fatally injured, and two classmates in his car were seriously injured. The students had been returning from a graduation party at Disneyland when they were hit.

A loud bang disturbed a quiet residential street in Carpinteria when a truck collided with a parked vehicle Wednesday morning.

Many people left their homes to check out the scene, and even went after the driver as he tried to walk away.

A fatal head-on crash on the Central Coast has turned into a potential felony DUI case.

One person is dead, and a second seriously injured following the crash just after 10 last night, near West Ocean Avenue, and Douglas Avenue in the Lompoc area. CHP officers say a car being driven westbound on Ocean Avenue by Abigal Morrissey of Santa Maria made a turn in front of an oncoming eastbound car. The driver of the eastbound car, Victoria Levinson of Santa Maria, was fatally injured.

Morrissey was arrested on a felony DUI charge.
