DUI Driver Crashes into Home Near Santa Clara and Injures 2 People
Santa Clara (June 25, 2018) – According to a local news source, two people were injured Saturday after an apparently intoxicated driver crashed into a home near Santa Clara and Willow Glen. Reports state that Cassandra Chatman was woken up by a very loud boom after a car had crashed into the side of her house. The car was a BMW convertible that happened to crash through the wall into the room directly below Chatman’s.
According to reports, the driver of the BMW appeared to be heavily intoxicated and driving at extremely high speeds before the accident. Reportedly, the driver of the BMW was going as fast as 70 or 80 mph before striking another vehicle and eventually crashing into the side of the home. The driver of the vehicle was arrested while two of the four people inside the BMW were reportedly transported to a local hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries. The Red Cross is helping Chatman find a home in the meantime.
The nature and events of this accident are currently under a full investigation. We would like to send our thoughts and prayers out to the victims of this crash, including the woman who is currently displaced.

Negligent drivers often leave a lot of pain and damage in their wake. There is no excuse for driving while intoxicated, and each and every driver who does so should always be held liable for their actions. The investigation will look to prove that the driver, in this case, acted negligently, and upon the conclusive determination of this claim, a personal injury lawsuit may be soon to follow. Many injured victims choose to file a claim for compensation because of the enormous bills that follow a sudden injury. Nevertheless, it is always up to the victims themselves to decide if they wish to pursue legal action or not.
