A man from Stockton accused of killing a motorcyclist in a DUI accident appears in court.

Details about the Fatal Accident

FOX News 4 is reporting that Luis Alberto Sanchez Manzo appeared in front of a San Joaquin County court judge on Tuesday for his arraignment and entered no plea.

According to investigators, Manzo drove into 31-year-old Tony Randle on Saturday when he was riding his motorcycle in Stockton. Manzo has since been charged with six felonies, including vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated, DUI, child abuse, and murder.

After the hearing, Randle’s family was speaking with the Manzo family outside the courtroom. Manzo’s family apologized for his actions, and said that he hadn’t been driving drunk at the time of the crash and that the crash was an accident.

The arraignment from Manzo will continue on April 7, and his bail has been set at $2 million.

Important Information about Driving Under the Influence

According to Mothers against Drunk Driving, there are thousands of wrongful death cases associated with drunk driving ever year in the United States:

  • Every day in the US, people drive drunk more than 300,000 times, but only about 3,200 people are arrested.
  • Nearly half of all drivers who were killed in accidents in 2012 tested positive for drugs and also had alcohol present in their system at the time of the accident.
  • In 2014, over 1.1 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
