Good Samaritan Killed by Drunk Driver
It’s so good when someone is willing to stop and help a neighbor out, since these so-called good Samaritans are becoming more and more rare these days. It’s also incredibly sad when a Good Samaritan is hurt or killed for his or her kind actions. Take a recent Miami-area example, in which three people were killed by a drunk driver.
Eduardo Hernandez was one such Good Samaritan. He stopped to help out two teens that had just been in a crash. Anapaula Saldana and Caroline Agreda, both 17, were stranded on the side of the road. They might have been very happy to see Hernandez stop to help out, but that happiness didn’t last.
Christopher Masferrer, 30 years old, was driving 71 miles per hour in a 40 mph zone. He’s just had eight beers and a shot of liquor at a bar before taking to the road with blood-alcohol level of 0.193. He slammed into Hernandez and the two teens, killing all three.
Now Masferrer is facing charges of three counts of vehicular homicide and three counts of DUI manslaughter, as well as one count of DUI involving serious bodily injury and one count of DUI causing property damage.
