California Woman Dies in Accident Hours Before DUI Class

A Southern California woman was killed in a roll-over accident on Interstate 210 around 2:00 am Thursday. She reportedly was hurrying home to get ready for a mandatory DUI class later that day.

The California Highway Patrol says Lidia Kopach had stopped at a bar and consumed two vodka drinks and shared two pitchers of beer before getting on the highway. She lost control of her vehicle and rolled over. Kopach was pronounced dead at the scene. A passenger who was slightly injured in the accident said that Kopach wanted to get home so she could get some sleep before attending the court-ordered class. He also related that he asked Kopach to slow down several times before the crash.

Kopach, 24, was required to take the alcohol awareness classes following a September 2009 conviction for driving under the influence in California.
