A week after an alleged San Diego DUI accident killed Marc Durham, the San Diego resident’s family forgave Anthony Guarino, the Rancho Bernardo resident charged with Durham’s alleged drunk driving death. “How can we ask for forgiveness if we are not willing to forgive ourselves? That’s always how my family has lived.”

Elaine Durham, the drunk driving victim’s wife, hopes her family’s loss will serve as a lesson to never to drive DUI in San Diego. “When you drink and drive, you might as well get a gun and shoot somebody, because it’s just as dangerous. I guess if this (San Diego DUI tragedy) saves one person’s life, then I would be very happy about that.”
Marc Durham retired a week prior to his death. 8 days ago, driving alone to the movies, he felt 57-year-old Anthony Guarino slamm into the back of his car at a light on Camino del Norte at Carmel Mountain Road, killing him instantly, triggering a series of car crashes. 8 folks in 4 vehicles were hurt.
On September 1st, Guarino will make his first DUI court appearance in downtown San Diego Superior Court. He faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted of Felony DUI / gross vehicular manslaughter.
