Just ten minutes after receiving an injection from his doctor, heroin addict, Alex Gonzales, passed out while driving his vehicle, killing 18-year-old Los Osos teen. According to THE TRIBUNE, Gonzales struggles with a drug addiction, in which he received an injection to treat this from his doctor at Ken Starr Addiction Medicine Group, just minutes before the fatal collision.
Witnesses say after the accident Gonzales showed symptoms of someone under the influence, there were needle marks on his body, and police found a “hype kit” in his car that contained three used needles and two spoons that contained residue.
Vivitrol, the injection given to Gonzales, should not be given to anyone with heroin in their system. One of the possible side effects of the combination is loss of consciousness. Gonzales also allegedly told police he should not have been driving.
The lawsuit claims Gonzales was injected with Vivitrol around 4:50 p.m. and that Gonzales left Starr’s office just before 5 p.m. According to the CHP, the accident occurred at 5:07 p.m.
Gonzales is currently in jail, charged with gross vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence resulting in great bodily injury.
