Sierra Valley DUI Crash Injures Leonard Leavitt, William Barnard Arrested

Sierra Valley, CA (July 29, 2021) – On July 25, 69-year-old Leonard Leavitt of Maclean, VA, was injured, and police arrested 22-year-old William Barnard of Reno, NV, in a DUI crash on State Route 70. The accident took place at approximately 12:38 a.m., east of Maddalena Road. Barnard was driving a 2007 Toyota 4-Runner eastbound on the freeway . Investigating officers said that due to his level of intoxication, he fell asleep and his Toyota 4-Runner swerved into the westbound lane directly into the path of Leavitt, driving a 2021 Audi with four passengers. As a result, Barnard’s eastbound Toyota crashed with Leavitt’s Audi in the westbound lane. The Toyota overturned several times and rested on its wheels on the north shoulder of Highway 70. Then, the Audi rested on its wheels on the south shoulder of the highway. Moreover, rescuers extricated multiple Audi occupants due to extensive damage to the passenger compartment. Emergency responders took all Audi occupants to Renown Medical Center with moderate injuries. Meanwhile, the authorities arrested Barnard for DUI and then transported to Renown with major injuries. Being a responsible driver means not drinking and driving at the same time.

Drive Safely To Prevent Accidents

While driving is essential for many in order to move about in their lives, it is one of the most dangerous activities performed daily. That is because auto accidents are a major public health threat. Traffic accidents are a leading cause of death for individuals ages 5-64. Thus it is indeed crucial that everyone drives defensively in order to avoid traffic accidents as much as possible. Here are some of the things that we can do to practice defensive driving: Always drive at a controllable speed. It is also important not to assume you know the other driver’s intention. Be prepared to positively react to other drivers. This one, we should never neglect. Yield at intersections, even if you have right of way. Most importantly, stay focused on the road. Remove all distractions such as mobile phone use, unstrapped toddlers, etc. Call our attorneys at Sweet Lawyers if you were injured in an accident. Our hotline is (800) 674 7852.
