Drunken Teen Driver Arrested after Madera Hit-and-Run Accident

Today, more and more teen drivers are getting involved in accidents, perhaps because of their inexperience and aggressiveness. In fact, a 16-year-old male driver, from Madera, has been recently arrested for drunk driving and hit-and-run after his car struck another vehicle in Madera County.

Reports stated that the victim Juan Ramirez, 58, from Madera, was moving north along Road 29 when his vehicle was struck by a 1995 Toyota Avalon that was moving eastbound on Avenue 14.

Ramirez sustained major injuries in the crash and was transported to a local hospital to be treated. His condition remains unknown. Meanwhile, his three passengers reportedly suffered minor injuries.

The teen driver and his 16-year-old passenger were spared from injures. Reports said the teen fled after the crash, but was fortunately captured at his house.

Hopefully, Ramirez will be able to recover from his injuries so that he can take the legal action against the teen driver.
