Nurse who blamed DUI on job takes plea deal
February 26, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal staff report

Gloria Pedruco

A pediatric nurse who reportedly said she “couldn’t take her job anymore and had to have a drink” before after going down an embankment and colliding into a car of people last summer pleaded no contest to drunk driving.

In return for changing her plea to the felony on Monday, Gloria Kiyoko Pedruco, 56, faces up to 90 days in jail when sentenced April 16 and the possibility of its reduction to a misdemeanor halfway through successful probation.

Pedruco, of Pacifica, drove onto the shoulder of northbound Interstate 280 near Serramonte Boulevard and down the embankment at approximately 6 p.m. July 5. Her vehicle hit a car waiting at a stop light, leaving the five people inside with bruises and cuts.

Prosecutors say Pedruco asked the victims who hit who and added that she needed a drink after a tough day. Pedruco’s blood alcohol level three hours after the collision was .18 and she had also ingested Prozac and Xanex.

Pedruco is free from custody on $50,000 bail.
