The Arkansas car accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Alan LeVar can’t help put hold up a recent accident reportedly caused by a woman named Athina L. Munoz as the perfect example of how drinking and texting can be deadly to drivers, particularly those on motorcycles.
According to Munoz’s arrest affidavit, not only was she drinking (and smoking marijuana) before she decided to get behind the wheel of her 1997 Honda Accord on Feb. 27th, she also admitted to authorities that she was texting at the moment that her car crashed into a bike driven by a 58-year-old motorcycle enthusiast and his 56-year-old passenger.
The accident occurred on Highway 83 between Denver, Colo. and Colorado Springs. Police reports indicate this exorbitantly distracted driver had bloodshot eyes and slurred speech when authorities arrived at the scene of the fatal crash.
Police also say that at the time of the motorcycle accident, Munoz had allowed her car to drift onto the wrong side of the road. She now faces charges of vehicular homicide, driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, and failing to present proof of insurance.
While this case represents an egregious example of the kind of deadly driving that make car and motorcycle accidents happen, sometimes fault can be more tricky to determine, or an insurance adjuster will attempt to assess fault without conducting a thorough investigation.
