Frandy Jose Ramirez Rodriguez Arrested on Drunk Driving Charges After Crash with 5 Injuries

Four Massachusetts state troopers and one civilian were injured in a chain-reaction crash involving a suspected drunk driver in the early hours of Monday, July 15.

26-year-old Frandy Jose Ramirez Rodriguez is charged with operating under the influence of liquor, negligent operation, operating after his license was suspended, operating an uninsured motor vehicle, failure to take care in starting, stopping, or turning, and a marked lanes violation.

Two police cruisers were conducting a traffic stop on Route 27 near Westgate Drive at around 12:56 a.m. when Ramirez Rodriguez's vehicle, a 2013 Hyundai Genesis, allegedly rear-ended one of the cruisers in the northbound lane. This caused a chain-reaction crash, with the first cruiser crashing into a second one. The second cruiser then collided with a 2011 Subaru Forester which had been pulled over as part of the traffic stop.

All four troopers were hospitalized at Good Samaritan Hospital in Brockton with non-life-threatening injuries of varying severity. The civilian was also hospitalized there with minor injuries

Financial Compensation For People Injured by Drunk Drivers in Massachusetts

Attorney contributor Kim Dougherty helps victims of drunk driving crashes fight for the financial compensation they need and deserve. Here is some general information from Kim regarding the legal options available to people who have been injured by drunk drivers in Massachusetts:

If you've been injured by drunk driver in Massachusetts or any other state, you have the option to file a personal injury lawsuit against that individual. However, in Massachusetts and many other states, the legal options available to people injured by drunk drivers don't always end here. In certain situations, people who have been hit by drunk drivers may also have the right to sue the alcohol vendor who served the driver before the crash.

In Massachusetts, alcohol vendors are prohibited from serving or selling alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person. If an alcohol vendor (such as a bar or nightclub) violates this law and the person they served injures someone else due to being intoxicated, the injured person may have grounds for a lawsuit against the vendor.

If you or someone you care about has been injured or killed after getting hit by a drunk driver, you can learn more about your legal rights by speaking to an experienced drunk driving injury victims lawyer.
