Triathlon Athlete Killed by Speeding, DUI Driver

Brook Boynton from San Clemente died after his Nissan SUV was rear-ended, spun out of control, and rolled over near Laguna Canyon Road.

Boynton was a Chemical Engineer and a regular contestant in Ironman competitions. He was 52-year-old when his life was taken away, a promising life wasted away because of the negligence of a motorist who was intoxicated while driving.

Reports indicate that 37-year-old Richard Ernest Caselli was going more than 100 kph when the accident happened. He was arrested and booked on charges of gross vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated.

Caselli is likely to compensate for the wrongful death of Boynton and pay his family compensatory damages for the damages and grief he caused them.
