California: Two-time DUI driver Lauren Davis rang the bell on her third time DUI behind the wheel when she killed one teen and critically injured Alexis Garcia

California Highway Patrol SUV

Two-time DUI driver Lauren Davis rung the bell on her third time DUI behind the wheel when she killed one teen and critically injured Alexis Garcia

The driver involved in the fatal crash that killed a 16-year-old girl and critically injured a 26-year-old girl near Livermore on Wednesday night was previously arrested for driving intoxicated, according to Alameda County Court records.

The driving records of 26-year-old Lauren Davis confirm she had been arrested twice before for driving under the influence and her most recent DUI was in May. According to records both DUI charges were reduced to reckless driving.

CHP Officer Tyler Hans confirms Davis is now in custody after being released from Highland Hospital in Oakland. She was taken to Santa Rita jail and will be charged with felony DUI and second-degree murder. Davis will be arraigned on Monday.

Alexis Garcia, one of the passengers in the SUV, is currently in critical condition after being fully ejected from the SUV. According to officials, Garcia suffered major head injuries and has been put into a medically induced coma at Eden Medical Center in Castro Valley.

Family and friends are also mourning the loss of a 16-year-old girl who was partially ejected from the SUV and died at the scene of the crash.

“My family is devastated,” said Garcia’s sister, Kim Brady. “One different choice could have changed where we all are today and where we spent Thanksgiving.”

 

Lauren April Davis worked a plea deal with the Alameda County District Attorney and was sentenced to one day in jail for DUI on May 22, 2017. She is currently on probation for three years.
