York County, SC (October 20, 2018) – 25-year-old Teresa Antonia Caceras-Rivera, an illegal alien has been arrested for drunk driving following a car crash that occurred on Friday in York County.
Caceras-Rivera was driving drunk when her car went into an embankment after she drove it off the road. The vehicle then flipped over according to reports from the South Carolina Highway Patrol. In the car with her at the time were four small children. At this time the South Carolina police still have no idea of the relationship between her in the children. All four children were injured in the accident and required medical treatment while Caceras-Rivera herself was completely unharmed.
The illegal immigrant is facing charges of driving without a license, drunk driving, and four counts of child endangerment. She is currently being held without bond in York County jail. If she is released from jail for any reason she will likely be detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
South Carolina Drunk Driving
We wish to extend our sincerest thoughts and well wishes to the four children who were harmed in this accident due to the negligence of a drunk driver.
The consumption of alcohol greatly impairs your ability to operate a motor vehicle. That is why there are laws in place governing how much you can have to drink before getting behind the wheel of a car. If you or someone you love has been injured as the result of a drunk driver you need to contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
Far too often drunk drivers are on our roads causing injuries, accidents, and even fatalities. A first-time drunk driving offender in South Carolina can be fined up to $400 and receive 30 days in jail, as well as lose their driving privileges for six months. Just because they are already facing these penalties does not mean that you should be coming out of pocket for the injuries and damages that you have suffered at their hand. Hiring a professional personal injury attorney can go a long way toward getting you the compensation that the law says you deserve.
