Drunk drivers are the cause of approximately 29 deaths per day in this country. Because driving drunk is a voluntary decision that a driver has to make purposefully, each death caused by drunk driver is preventable. In addition to those who lose their lives, there are countless other victims who suffer injuries in crashes caused by impaired drivers.
Car crashes happen for a variety of reasons, and some circumstances are beyond the control of those involved. However, if a driver does or fails to do something that causes a serious collision, punishment through the criminal justice system may not only be inevitable, but necessary. A recent car crash in Colorado resulted in that very action, as a man has been charged with driving under the influence and other offenses after authorities say that he caused a crash that left four people hospitalized.
