I don't normally write about this type of thing on this particular blog but considering the previous post on the topic of drug rehab, it caught my eye. It appears that Roger Avary was driving early Sunday when his car spun out of control and hit a telephone pole in Ojai. He was arrested and booked on suspicion of gross vehicular manslaughter and felony drunken driving.
Killed in the crash was Andreas Zini, 34, a resident of Italy who was apparently visiting Avary and his wife, Gretchen, 40, according to the sheriff's department. Gretchen Avary was seriously injured but is expected to survive, said Capt. Jerry Hernandez. The theme of friends should not let friends drive drunk seems to ring true here.
