Trial begins for man accused of fatal DUI
On May 20, San Diego man William Cady began his trial for 12 charges relating to a drunk driving accident that killed 3 passengers in the vehicle on Jan 10, 2014, according to NBC San Diego. The charges include gross vehicular manslaughter and first-degree murder.
Cady was drinking and smoking marijuana before attempting to drive him and 5 passengers to their homes. He reportedly was speeding between 87-97 miles per hour as he attempted to merge from Interstate 805 to SR-52; this is when he lost control of the vehicle.
Cady’s Escalade veered from the road, hitting a cement pillar and rolling over several times before stopping in nearby traffic. Three passengers died at the scene, two of which were not wearing their seatbelts. The two other passengers suffered serious injuries, as did Cady. The accident also caused a chain of other accidents to occur, fortunately none resulting in major injury.
