In yet another story of drinking and driving we find someone who has a definite problem with alcohol. If you have had an alcohol-related incident, you most likely have a problem. It is estimated that for every alcohol-related offense more than 500 go undetected.
Rudolph Barclay, a 48-year-old from Temecula, California apparently did not see a black utility trailer being backed out of property onto a dark street. Missing this huge object has involved him in a major injury crash that shut down a Wildomar road for seven hours. He was arrested for alleged DUI. As reported in temecula.patch.com.
The trailer's lights were apparently not operating, Barclay was hammered at the time of the accident. Also, a man was standing in the middle of the road directing traffic when Barclay's pickup slammed into the trailer.
The man was hit by the trailer and knocked down, striking his head on the pavement and suffering injuries requiring surgery.
Just how high was Barclay’s blood-alcohol concentration at the time of the accident? That has not been released. The only real positive thus far is that no one was seriously injured. Hopefully, Barclay will take a good alcohol class and devote his life to sobriety.
