Winters California Supports the Victim of a Drunk Driving Tragedy   Leave a comment

On May 18 the car of my friend Michael Hendrix was T-boned by a drunk driver. His daughte, who was riding in the passenger seat was severely injured and remains in a coma. The drunk was, of course, uninsured.

The accident occurred at the intersection of Road 31 and Road 95, near the Davis Airport.

Today, the community of Winters, CA. (a community of just over 6000 people) came together to support the Hendrix family, both emotionally and financially for a spaghetti feed catered by the Buckhorn restaurant and held at the Winters fire station.

For those who wish, donations may be made at any First Northern Bank branch. Ask for the Marie Hendrix Medical Fund trust account. I assume checks may be mailed, and a PayPal option is in the works.

The drunk driver was Rogilio Cardenas, 30, of Davis. He, of course, sustained only minor injuries.
