Star Baggett-Porter Arrested For Suspect DUI

The Press Democrat claims on July 9th a suspected drunk driver causes a 3 car collision on northbound Highway 101 near the downtown Santa Rosa exit in California.

Star Baggett-Porter, the alleged drunk driver, rear-ended another vehicle. The driver of that vehicle then lost control and crashed into a third car. This caused both vehicles to overturn;  one even crashed into the embankment off the side of the highway.

The driver of the third card that was hit was hospitalized with minor injuries.

Star Baggett-Porter was arrested for suspicion of DUI.

Financial Compensation for Victims of Drunk Drivers

Mike Pfau is a lawyer who represents people injured by drunk drivers in California. Below Bobby gives some insight on the legal options available to people and their families who have been hit by drunk drivers in California:

In every state, those who have been injured by drunk drivers may file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. In addition to this, there are several states which have ‘dram shop laws,’ which allow alcohol vendors and private social hosts to be sued for injuries caused by people to whom they sold alcohol.

California is one state with these third-party liability laws, but the state laws are more restrictive than others. However, an alcohol vendor or a social host can be held liable for DUI crash injuries if they served a driver under the legal drinking age of 21 years old.
