As Phoenix car accident attorneys, we remind people to never drink and drive. A drunk driver left one mother dead after driving his van at 70 mph on Indian School Road and smashing head-on into her car, according to reports in Fox 10 News. It happened on Tuesday night, June 5, 2012. The man was immediately taken to the hospital and then booked into jail on DUI charges. Three children were waiting for the mother at home, and police had to take them into custody because they couldn’t find any immediate family members in the vicinity. Our deepest condolences go out to these children and any other family members. This was a horrible tragedy, and one that could have been avoided had the man not been driving drunk. Our hearts and prayers sincerely go out to the victim and her family.
Causes of This Phoenix Car Crash
This Phoenix drunk driving crash happened when a man made the choice to get behind the wheel while intoxicated. He sped and weaved through traffic, according to witnesses, and then smashed head-on into another car. That driver died on the scene. The man was 21-years-old, and the mother he killed was 30. We want to remind people how important it is to ask a designated driver to drive you home or to call a cab. Drunk driving is extremely dangerous, and as is apparent by this case, it can be fatal. There are no excuses whatsoever for drinking and driving.
