A mother and her four children were killed in a head-on crash near Salem, Oregon by a drunken driver who has a previous conviction for driving while intoxicated. The two car crash happened shortly before 5 p.m. Sunday when a Land Rover driven by Favian R. Garcia, 27 years-old, of Gervais, Oregon, collided with a Buick Century head-on. The two cars were coming around a corner when they crashed. The Buick was driven by Lisette Medrano-Perez, 25, from Molalla, Oregon, and in the car were her four children, an 8 year-old boy, a 6 year-old boy, a 4 year-old girl and a 2 year-old girl, all of whom were pronounced dead at the scene.
Mr. Garcia, who had minor injuries, was arrested on suspicion of five counts of manslaughter, driving while intoxicated, reckless driving and having outstanding warrants from Marion County. Court records show Garcia pleaded guilty to driving under the influence of intoxicants in 2011 and was arrested on suspicion of the same crime in July. He was wanted on an outstanding warrant in that case for failing to appear for a July court hearing in Marion County.
