For people across the country, Memorial Day is typically a holiday to relax and reflect. Many people have the day off and mark the beginning of summer with cookouts and time with friends and family. Unfortunately, the holiday also shows an increase in dangerous car accidents. At least one man has been charged for his role in a recent fatal car accident in California.
Around 8 in the morning on Memorial Day, a 25 year-old-driver allegedly struck a second vehicle. The impact of the accident split the first car in half. As a result, three passengers in the car, ranging in age from 21 to 23, were pronounced dead. The driver of the second vehicle did not suffer any serious injuries.
