Maintaining a good relationship with a co-driver can be a challenge even if – and sometimes especially if – you’re related to your partner. These two Nevada drivers will definitely have some issues to work through after one of them was sentenced to 90 days in jail and a $3,000 fine for running over the other and then driving away.
28-year-old Kristofer Paul Talancon has admitted that while driving on August 2nd, he backed up over his coworker in what appears to have been an accident and then drove away. The pair had made a wrong turn and his co-driver, Joseph Marcaida, got out to help turn the truck around.
Marcaida was badly injured and was transported to a local hospital before being flown to a different hospital for treatment. According to him, both drivers had used methamphetamines before the incident occurred.
Talancon has pled guilty to charges of fleeing the scene of an accident involving serious injury and use of a controlled substance, but two other charges were dropped as a result of the plea deal.
