The Sun posted a recent article discussing a Riverside man’s involvement in a hit and run incident. Dustin Michael Garrett was arrested for suspicion of drunk driving and causing bodily injury to multiple victims on a Saturday night at around 9 p.m. Redlands police say that Garret struck 27-year-old Dain Nuu Wells with his vehicle on Colton Avenue near Herald Street, Wells was riding his skateboard when he was struck and thrown onto the hood of Garrett's car as he was speeding down the street. Garrett fled the scene of the incident and collided with three other vehicles in the process. After colliding with the third vehicle, Garrett abandoned his vehicle and fled on foot until he was caught by police at Empire Bowl near Colton and New York Street. He was booked at the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga for DUI and Hit & Run, but was later released.
Fortunately no lives were lost because of this reckless driver’s actions, but that is not always the case when a drunk driving accident occurs. It is very unfortunate to think about but accidents caused by drunk drivers taken lives across this state at a staggering rate. When we send our loved ones out into the world, we always hope they will return home safely but some families are not so fortunate. If you know you will be drinking, please do not get behind the wheel or a vehicle. If you are under the influence, call a sober driver to pick you up so you can be part of the solution and not the problem. Always buckle up while you are in a vehicle and help the streets be a less dangerous and unpredictable place. You can make a difference.
Defending Your Driver's License Against the DMV
When accidents caused by drunk driving occur in California, the DMV’s first reaction against the driver is to suspend or revoke their license. If a suspension action begins, it is the driver’s responsibility to schedule an administrative hearing to fight for the preservation of their driver license. This process can be a difficult and confusing challenge if attempted without guidance. It is wise to do your research and enlist the assistance of a team that can expertly take on your case and ensure you an opportunity to prevail.
