Mr. Bernal-Caudra was not convicted of driving while under the influence of alcohol, however. Urine and blood tests determined that the recently convicted gentleman was under the influence of marijuana at the time of the crash. At the time of the Northern Nevada automobile accident, the man’s infant child and girlfriend were in the car.

Mr. Heinemann was in Reno working on the home of his recently deceased mother-in-law. The California man was running an errand to Walgreen’s at the time of the accident. Mr. Heinemann’s wife was with him in Reno working on the home.

In 2010, Mr. Bernal-Cuadra was arrested for previous DUI involving marijuana.
