Eric Garrett Killed in Alleged Sacramento, California Drunk Driving Accident

Officials from the California Highway Patrol have formally identified the 11-year-old boy killed in a single-vehicle accident in Sacramento, CA on Sunday, June 16th, 2013. Police working closely with accident investigators currently have reason to believe that Eric Garrett was killed when the vehicle in which he was a passenger experienced a sudden and catastrophic loss of control for reasons immediately unclear to investigators while navigating the on-ramp to Interstate 80. The vehicle left the roadway, whereupon it rolled.

Scene of the Accident


The report does not explicitly illustrate if Eric Garrett was killed instantly in the accident or if he was possibly transported by emergency response personnel to a nearby hospital where he succumbed to his injuries a short time after his arrival. The driver of the vehicle has since been identified as Tyesha Garrett, who currently faces drunk driving related charges stemming from the accident. Authorities from both local and state agencies are said to be investigating the crash.
