Victim of DUI Crash on Friday Identified as Zachary Demello
Yuba County (June 25, 2018) – According to a reliable news source, a young man who was seriously injured in a DUI crash Friday morning has been identified as 21-year-old Zachary W. Demello of Brownsville. The California Highway Patrol reported that the crash took place at approximately 6:07 a.m. Friday morning on Willow Glen Road near Meadow Way.
Reportedly, Demello was driving his 1998 Honda Civic on Willow Glen Road when a man operating a vehicle of the same make and model struck Demello. The Honda Civic that caused the crash was being driven by 44-year-old Christopher Jenkins who was heading south when he veered into Demello’s lane.
Emergency crews arrived on the scene shortly after the crash and took Demello to Rideout Memorial Hospital by ambulance. He was being treated for serious injuries. Jenkins was also taken to the same hospital for serious injuries, although he was later airlifted to Enloe Medical Center. Jenkins was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after the accident. Our thoughts and prayers are currently with both victims of this accident.

Negligent drivers are responsible for serious injuries and wrongful deaths every day, and it is absolutely necessary that they are held liable for their actions. While there is no winner when everyone involved ends up injured, it is still the sole responsibility of the negligent driver to cover all financial burdens that they cause.
Accidents like this leave the innocent victim with immense hospital bills, future medical expenses, loss of wages, and property damage that the responsible party should have to compensate. Many victims choose to file a claim for compensation simply because of these high expenses. Although that choice is always made by the victim, this case will likely provide the grounds for a successful personal injury claim based on the negligent drivers’ intoxication at the time of the crash.
