Two killed in traffic accident in Chesterfield | Richmond Virginia Wrongful Death Lawyer

2 Lebanese American killed in traffic accident in Virginia .

Early in the morning at around 2:30 am on Saturday March 19, 2011, two men were killed when their car was struck by a drunk driver.

Jose Martinez was driving a 2004 GMC Yukon northbound in the southbound lanes when he hit a 2003 BMW 325 driven by Imad Elawar with his passenger Sammer Ballout, who both died at the scene.

Apparently Martinez was driving to his girlfriend’s house after consuming several shots of tequila and drinking some beers and was talking on his cell phone to his girlfriend at the time of the crash.

Martinez is 17 and was charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter, driving under the influence, driving with out a license and driving with a learner’s permit without being accompanied by an adult.

Another tragic death caused by a drunk driver. The victim’s families should make sure to hire a good Richmond VA wrongful death lawyer. A good Virginia personal injury lawyer can help them through this difficult time by taking care of all the things that need to be done.

I hope they are doing well with this tragic situation. A say a prayer for their families.
