(The Sunny Hall trial begins in January)….The 31-year-old El Cajon resident is accused of killing two people.
The tragedy occurred in El Cajon on June 11, 2012. A 25-year-old woman, Angela August, had rolled her vehicle on Interstate 8. Investigators say 59-year-old Jimmy Arevalo stopped to assist the woman. The California Highway Patrol says Arevalo, a school teacher in Imperial County, was on his cell phone when a vehicle driven by Hall hit August and Arevalo. Both suffered fatal injuries. Arevalo was a very popular teacher at Dool Elementary in Calexico and at Imperial Valley College. Hall, who has a long criminal history, reportedly had a blood alcohol level of .15 at the time. Her trial was set during a court appearance this week.
