October 30, 2023

Deschutes County, Oregon (OR) – On Saturday, October 14, 2023, a two-car collision occurred close to milepost 129 on US 97 in Bend, OR.

The incident took place at around 10:30 a.m., when a drunk driver struck a Kia Soul head-on as she crossed into oncoming southbound traffic while operating a Jeep Wrangler. Tomas Santizo Romairo, a 39-year-old Redmond resident who was driving the Jeep Wrangler, was detained for DUII. He was treated at a nearby hospital for minor wounds. The suspect was detained for DUII as well as reckless endangerment and driving while intoxicated. The driver of the Kia Soul had non-life-threatening injuries and was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital. A second drunk motorist was found in traffic while troopers were investigating the collision. In addition to an outstanding warrant, the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office arrested the defendant for DUII.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that about 37 persons each day, or one every 39 minutes, pass away in drunk driving accidents. It is reported that approximately 31% of traffic deaths in the United States are caused by drunk drivers. Accidents involving drunk driving can be avoided. Planning ahead and never driving while under the influence of any substance, is the advice given to drivers. Use public transportation, phone sober friends or family, hail a cab or ride-sharing service, or assign a sober driver to ensure you arrive home safely.

Dial 911 if you witness a drunk motorist on the road.
