10-year old, Rafael Ramirez, dies in Anaheim, CA car accident.

Police believe that a drunk driver killed a 10-year-old boy, Rafael Ramirez, and four family members in Anaheim, California. The potential drunk driver rear-ended their car at an Anaheim intersection, police said Sunday. Drunk driving Texas are not unique to Texas. They happen all over the United States. Many Texas personal injury lawyers have a unique set of skills due to the fact that (1) Texas has many drunk driving accidents; and (2) it is a state with strict driving while intoxicated laws. The Anaheim, California accident involved family members in the car that was stopped at a red light. That was when a pickup truck crashed into their car and caused this potential wrongful death case.

The impact was so violent that it caused both vehicles to strike a third car. The third car had occupants, which were also injured. We can expect to often find head injuries in these types of accidents. A careful lawyer will consider whether there are traumatic brain injuries.

Police officers and paramedics implemented CPR to the 10-year-old, but he was pronounced dead at a hospital. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family. We hope they

Four family members, two kids and two adults that were in the car, were taken to local hospitals as trauma patients.

The truck driver, Gary Hunt, is 41 years old. According to a report, he was not hurt. Still, he was arrested for driving under the influence. How many times have we heard stories about a drunk driver killing someone in a car accident, but the intoxicated person walks away without injury? We hope the family of the young boy gets the help that they need.
