Negligent drivers are often the cause of car crashes in California, as well as others that occur across the country. The actions of a driver can have deadly consequences, as was apparently the case in a recent fatal car accident. Moreover, the driver deemed responsible was convicted of reckless driving following a motorcycle stunt on the same highway where the fatal accident later occurred.
Reportedly, the 23-year-old driver of a Corvette caused a wreck on Interstate 580 that ended with the vehicle overturning after first hitting a light pole near the freeway exit. Neither the 25-year-old passenger nor the driver were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. The driver was still on probation for reckless driving from the previous year. In that case, he pleaded guilty to criminal charges after California Highway Patrol surveillance caught him doing motorcycle wheelies on the same highway.
