It's been all over the news here in Fresno, and perhaps it's time a Fresno criminal lawyer talks about it and gives expert interpretation. It was a tragic event that deserves to be chronicled, in a situation that is difficult for everyone involved. In late January, around 6 P.M. there was a fatal crash. A man was driving drunk in his red, Chevy minivan, ran a stop sign in which he hit one motorist, continued around the turn and as he drove down McCall, he drifted into the lane of an oncoming car. In that car were four women. All four sisters who grew up in Del Rey. Three died as a result of the crash. The fourth, the driver, in critical condition and taken to the hospital.
