There are so many obvious dangers of drinking and driving – you may end up hurting yourself or others. With so many forms of alternative transportation, it is almost baffling that people still get behind the wheel after they have had a few drinks.
Overnight in Arcadia, authorities said that a man was taken into custody after he hit a 77-year-old woman and fled the scene. Witnesses of the accident were able to gather enough information about the vehicle and license plate to identify the man who fled the scene. Investigators believe that he was driving under the influence and was arrested at his home for gross vehicular manslaughter, felony driving under the influence, and felony hit-and-run. According to witnesses the woman was crossing the street at the intersection of Baldwin and Arcadia Avenues.
Anyone with additional information about the case that could possibly aid detectives in the investigation, are urged to call the Arcadia Police Department at (626) 574-5151.
