Sabrina Levi Killed in Accident with Suspected Drunk Driver
Phoenix, Arizona—Sabrina Levi, age 59, died from injuries she received in a head-on collision late last month.
Noe Padilla Ahumada, age 37, was driving his pick-up truck north on 51st Avenue near Olive Avenue when he reportedly crossed into the southbound lanes and collided head-on with Ms. Levi’s sedan. Both drivers were trapped in their vehicles.
Although the Glendale Police vehicular crimes unit reports that speed was not a factor in the accident, a witness reportedly saw Mr. Ahumada’s truck swerve into oncoming traffic several times prior to the crash.
Mr. Ahumada was transported to a hospital where his blood was drawn. A Police accident spokesperson reported that Ahumada’s blood alcohol content was double that allowable under Arizona law.
Ahumada’s injuries are non-life threatening. He is charged with manslaughter and bond is set at $10,000.
We extend our condolences to Ms. Levi’s family and friends over this tragic loss.
