8-year-old boy killed in police chase

Father Leads Police on Chase, 8 Year-old Son Dies:

32-year-old Zabdiel Arciga was allegedly driving a Lexus at 120 mph/193kph through Seaside, California. When police pursued the car tried to exit the highway and hit a guardrail destroying the car. Arciga only had minor injuries however his 8-year-old son, Isaiah, was killed in the crash.

So not only was he driving at speeds where the slightest mistake can cause a car to go flying into the air he was doing it while his own 8-year-old son in the car. To make matters worse the car wasn’t even his. It was lent to him by a friend because Arciga had fallen on hard times. Considering Arciga had previous DUI arrests I would not have lent him my car with the leaky transmission let alone a Lexus.

Driving at that speed with your kids in the car doesn’t make you a man. It makes you child killer.

Also in the vehicle were an adult female and the adult female’s 10-year-old daughter. The child was not the daughter of Godinez.

The Nevada Highway patrol says she sped by past officers who had stopped another car and almost clipped them.

No word on her BAC so we can not adds her to the board just yet.

According to the article this is common place for this area of Reno and Godinez was the 6th person stopped for drugs or alcohol with a child in the car.
