Police say drunk driver fled the scene of fatal accident

A 42-year-old man has been charged with driving while impaired by alcohol and leaving the scene of an accident in connection with a fiery chain-reaction crash on California State Route 60 that claimed the life of a Whittier man on Jan. 9. County booking records reveal that the man's bail has been set at $760,000. He's scheduled to appear in Ponoma Superior Court on Feb. 4.

Miranda warnings are given because of a Supreme Court ruling

California residents who watch crime television shows or films likely know every word of the Miranda warning. This is the statement made by police officers advising suspects of their rights. The rights mentioned are provided by the U.S. Constitution's Fifth Amendment, but they are often referred to as Miranda warnings because of a landmark ruling the U.S. Supreme Court made in 1966.

California and national drunk driving data

The state of California ranks right in the middle on a list of all the states' drunk driving rates. A study of information maintained by the FBI, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention showed that California was 25th in the country when it came to the rate of drunk driving during the year 2018, indicating 322.7 drunk driving arrests per 100,000 residents.
