Alcohol-involved accident claims 2 lives, former astronaut blamed
Alcohol, drugs and driving always carry the possibility of being a fatal mixture. If a person who consumes alcohol and drugs decides to drive, it might not be his or her own life that is in danger. Instead, they might place other people in danger of being injured or killed. A recent case shows that nobody is immune from the effects of mixing alcohol, drugs and driving.
Drunk Driving Accident Attorney
In the early morning hours on a Monday, a vehicle driven by a man who reportedly had empty wine bottles and an empty package of sleeping pills in a hotel room where he was staying crashed into a Ford Fiesta from behind. Two girls who were in the Fiesta weren’t wearing seat belts, were thrown from the vehicle and died. Two adults in the vehicle were injured.
The father of the girls was driving the Fiesta at the time of the accident. He was bringing the girls from their mother’s home in Texas to Alabama for summer vacation. They were approximately 20 minutes from the father’s home in Alabama when the fatal drunk driving accident occurred. The man who slammed into them was said to have a disheveled appearance, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.
