Woman Fatally Injured by Drunk Driver While Dining Outdoors
Last week, a suspected drunk driver plowed into an outdoor dining area at a sports bar in San Jose. According to ABC News Channel Seven, the incident happened on Friday night at Agave Sports Bar. Initial reports indicate that the driver was sitting in his parked vehicle for about a half hour before putting it into reverse and plowing into the crowd.
First responders rushed to the scene, where one person was killed and at least two others were injured. The suspected drunk driver tried to flee the scene, but security guards were able to detain him until law enforcement arrived. The vehicle involved was reportedly a work truck for QEC, which is a Bay area construction company. The driver is a field superintendent for that company. He was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.
