26-Year-Old Man Arrested for DUI, Vandalism, and Hit-And-Run Crash on Knob Hill Road in San Marcos

 
San Marcos, CA (October 4, 2020) – Sunday morning, police arrested a 26-year-old man suspected of DUI, hitting a concrete wall, a wall of a residence, and a hit-and-run crash at the intersection of Knob Hill Road.
 
The incident began at 10:30 a.m. on October 4. San Marcos Station responded to a report of a beige Mercedes-Benz E230 speeding northbound on Bennett Avenue when it ran off the road, hit a concrete wall, and hit the wall of a residence in the 600 blocks of Bennett.
 
Witnesses say a man was wearing camouflage clothing that used a hatchet to smash a vehicle’s window in a nearby Stater Bros. grocery store’s parking lot. He then fled the scene.
 
Moreover, he was spotted northbound on Bennett and ran a stop sign at Knob Hill Road’s intersection. The Mercedes crashed into an Audi A3 driven by a 61-year-old woman. Nobody sustained an injury, but the suspect continued to flee.
 
After the preliminary investigation and witness statements, deputies determined that the suspect was driving under the influence of prescription drugs and alcohol during his alleged crime spree, and he was arrested.
 
San Marcos patrol and traffic division deputies continue to investigate the incident.

 
According to the United States Department of Transportation, there are approximately 300,000 merging accidents every year. In 2017, 485,866 accidents were reported solely in the state of California. It is therefore important to follow all the traffic laws to avoid these types of accidents.

Safety Driving Tips

  • Aim high in steering, i.e., don’t make your steering adjustments based on what is directly in front of you, but rather what is down the road. If the drive is winding to the right, look as far into the turn as possible. This will improve your safety and make your shifts smoother.
  • Scan the road 1/2 mile a full mile ahead to recognize potential hazards in time.
  • Be a proactive driver, rather than a reactive one. Driving defensively prepares you for emergency situations.
  • Use road signals to communicate with those you are driving alongside.
  •  
    If you find yourself unable to safely operate a vehicle, you can always use an Uber or a Lyft instead. Failure to follow all the traffic laws could lead to serious consequences for yourself and for others.

    Hiring a Personal Attorney

    The most valuable step you can take in response to a vehicle crash is hiring a personal injury attorney. Mark Sweet, a personal injury attorney at Sweet Lawyers, says that serious car accident cases may call for a separate investigation spearheaded by an experienced lawyer fighting on behalf of a party. Oftentimes, injuries are not reported until it is too late.
