A recent Anaheim car accident killed a 21-year-old man and seriously injured another man, and authorities think alcohol may have played a role in the wreck. The accident happened west of Via Corral on Canyon Rim when a vehicle crashed into a tree. When accidents like this are caused by drinking and driving, police and prosecutors usually try to convict the responsible driver. A conviction in criminal court may bring the family of a victim a sense of justice, but loved ones can also file a suit in civil court. While this does not bring a relative back, it can provide a family with compensation for funeral expenses and pain and suffering.
