Drunk driver kills Lyft driver in a hit and run

A Lyft driver in California died last month after being hit by a drunk driver, according to NBC San Diego.

The driver, Henry Reyes, stopped his car and pulled over after noticing that one of his passengers had fallen ill. Moments later, Reyes was struck by another driver, Steven Quintero, who was intoxicated. Reyes was killed on impact, and Quintero attempted to flee the scene before being caught. 

Reyes had just graduated from Dental school and was driving for Lyft in order to provide for his 2-year-old son.

A hearing on October 5 was set for Quintero in a San Diego court.

The wrongful death attorneys at the Law Offices of Yvonne M. Fraser send our deepest condolences to Henry Reyes’ family and loved ones.
