New Year’s Day 2014 was supposed to be a new beginning for all. That was not the case for two people in Morgan Hill California. About 2:30 p.m. according to authorities, Esteban Sanchez was driving on East Dunne Avenue in Morgan Hill under the influence. He crashed his Mazda 3 into a pregnant woman’s car and drove off. Then he proceeded crash into a fire hydrant at Butterfield Boulevard at Barrett Avenue. He fled his car and ran into an industrial area of Caputo Drive where the police arrested him. Why in the world was he still driving? He had four previous arrests for suspicion of driving under the influence. What are the authorities waiting for someone to die? They should have taken this menace off the street after his second D.U.I. He is in custody without bail and is due in court on Monday January 6th. As for the pregnant woman there is no information on how she is doing. I pray that her baby and she are doing well. 23 year old Esteban Sanchez of San Jose should never be permitted to drive a vehicle again. He is a danger to everyone on the road drivers and pedestrians alike. Authorities are asking anyone who saw anything to contact Morgan Hill police Detective Jeff Tacazon at 408-779-2101 or the anonymous Crime Stoppers tip line at 408-947-7867.
