Woman Arrested For Drinking and Driving Following Fatal Accident

The driver of a vehicle that was involved in a rollover accident on August 7 in Colusa County that killed a passenger and severely injured a 5-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. According to the Colusa Sun Herald, Angela Bell, 41 drifted off the side of the road in her 1998 Ford Expedition on Interstate 5. She lost control of the SUV and rolled over several times, according to the California Highway Patrol.

Reginald Dunn, 41, was identified as the passenger who was killed. Dunn was wearing a seat belt according to the police report, but still sustained fatal injuries. The couple’s child, Reangelo Dunn, 5, was riding in the backseat. Reangelo suffered major injuries and was flown to U.C. Davis Medical Center.

Angela—who suffered no major injuries—was arrested on the scene for suspicion of drinking and driving. This is a difficult concept for many to understand, how a woman with so much to lose would consider driving a vehicle after she had been drinking—especially considering her family was in the vehicle with her.
