Political leaders of any kind are often held to a higher moral standard than the rest of society because of their positions of power. For this reason, when a politician may have caused a vehicle accident and been under the influence while doing so, it can seem much more shocking than an average DUI. Unfortunately, a local California politician may have been at fault for a recent motor vehicle accident.
The original accident took place on the night of Oct.16 and involved one pickup truck and a standard car. Initial investigations suggested that the politician was driving the pickup truck when it rear ended the car at an intersection. The car was carrying high school cheerleaders at the time of the accident, of which four were injured.
