Mom imprisoned for DUI crash that hurt son, boyfriend
July 24, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Carina Sandoval

A woman whose drunken crash into oncoming traffic broke several of her boyfriend’s bones and also injured her 16-month-old son was sentenced to five years in prison because she had three prior convictions for driving while intoxicated.

Carina Lisbet Sandoval, 27, pleaded no contest to felony drunk driving causing injury with three prior DUIs and the allegations she had multiple victims and a minor under 14 in the vehicle. The plea deal also settled Sandoval’s DUI case from the previous October. She was immediately sentenced to five years prison with credit of 376 days.

On Jan. 7, Sandoval, who was driving on a suspended license in connection with the pending DUI case, allegedly turned left in front of an oncoming vehicle in an intersection at Bayfront Expressway and Chrysler Drive. All passengers had to be extricated by first responders and were hospitalized. The son was treated and released but the boyfriend suffered a fractured pelvis, broken ribs and kidney lacerations.

Responding Redwood City and Menlo Park police reported finding a case of Tecate beer and a shot glass in the car. Sandoval’s blood alcohol level was .22.

In the earlier October 2013 incident, Sandoval was arrested after police responded to calls of a driver traveling erratically on two flat tires on Main Street at Middlefield Road. Open cans of Tecate beer were in the car and her blood alcohol tested at .24, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
