On Aug. 14, a fun-filled day at Loon Lake ended in near tragedy for the Santos family. As Angelo Santos; his wife, Alyssa; and children Isabella, Zachary, Annalia, and Nikko, traveled south on U.S. Highway 395, a drunken driver blew through the stop sign at Crawford Road. “I saw him coming,” Angelo Santos said, of the seconds before the crash. “I tried to veer right to avoid him.” But the collision proved inescapable.
