A 23-year-old Norwalk, California man in a Ford Explorer is believed to have run into the rear of the Lexus. The Lexus spun out of control, and reportedly struck three construction workers who had been working on the 405. The Ford flipped over onto its roof.

Two construction workers were fatally injured in the freeway accident. The third construction worker was able to walk around after the accident, and was eventually transported to an area hospital for treatment.

Both drivers involved in the freeway accident reportedly suffered scrapes and cuts from the crash. Each was transported to the hospital for treatment. Authorities say that both drivers were under the influence at the time of the 3:35 a.m. crash Sunday. After receiving medical attention, each driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI at the hospital.

Authorities claim that the star running back showed signs of intoxication during the traffic stop, which occurred around 3:20 Saturday morning.

Police reportedly stopped the woman on the north side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Authorities claim that she did poorly in field sobriety tests and was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving.

The accident was reported around 12:30 p.m. May 12, which was a Saturday. The school district reportedly noted that the weekend accident was not related to the elementary school teacher's job. However, exposure to jail time in the hit-and-run and DUI case could possibly have made things touchy at work for the teacher.

The woman appeared in court earlier this week and pled no contest to two counts of DUI. Prosecutors agreed to drop the hit-and-run charge as part of the plea deal. The agreement will allow the woman to avoid jail time.

The alleged driver of the car was the only Marine to survive that night. He had suffered head trauma and sustained a broken arm. The man was knocked unconscious in the crash. Authorities claim that alcohol tests taken after the crash indicate that the man tested for a 0.16 percent blood alcohol level.

The Marine has now been formally charged with three counts of vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated without gross negligence. Prosecutors are also reportedly seeking sentencing enhancements in the felony DUI criminal case.

Military and civilian witnesses who were at the tavern where the four Marines are believed to have spent more than three hours the night of the crash say that the man accused of drunk driving had not been drinking that night. The witnesses reportedly say that the 25-year-old man accused of drinking and driving was the designated driver.
