A young Fallon man is facing up to 12 years in prison for causing a fatal driving under the influence accident that took the life of a 19 year old woman.

According to the Lahontan Valley News, on the night of November 8, 2010, two lives were forever changed.   Justin Speed, 22, was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado truck westbound on Highway 50 when he veered into oncoming traffic and collided with a 1986 Volvo station wagon driven by Samantha Sibis, 19, killing her instantly.   Speed was returning from his own brother's funeral when he caused the fatal DUI-accident.

Our law firm sends it sincere condolences to the friends and family members of Sibis.  If you have been involved in a driving under the influence accident, contact our California DUI Defense Lawyers today.
