A 21-year-old California woman has been accused of driving drunk and causing a highway crash that killed six people when she drove in the wrong direction on a freeway. Olivia Carolee Culbreath was charged with suspicion of felony DUI and felony manslaughter. According to the investigators, Culbreath was driving east in one of the westbound lanes of a freeway in Diamond Bar, Calif., at 4:40 a.m. on a Sunday when her Chevy Camaro collided head-on with a Ford Explorer.
Another vehicle, a Ford Freestyle, also was involved in the crash. At least two people were ejected from their vehicles. Four people died on the scene and two later died at a nearby hospital. Rodrigo Jimenez, a California Highway Patrol spokesman, called the crash “a horrific collision” and one that was “100 percent preventable.” This is another sad example of why drunk drivers must be kept off the highways in the country. Accomplishing this goal will require a combination of good educational efforts, more legislation passed and strong enforcement of the laws.
