As if we need another drunk driving crash to remind us about the dangers of driving while intoxicated, another one has hit the local airwaves. Here’s what happened this time.
At Ramona and Hudspeth near South Oak Cliff High School, a Crown Victoria ran a stop sign and crashed into a Lexus. Inside the Lexus was a grandfather and two grandchildren. The Crown Victoria contained an alleged drunk driver and a passenger. All were injured in the crash and taken to the hospital.
The grandfather and one grandchild just received minor cuts, but the other grandchild broke her jaw. The driver of the Lexus suffered a broken hip and the passenger had neck and back pain.
The driver of the Lexus will be booked into jail once she recovers from her injuries.
Drunk drivers receive many punishments from the criminal court system if they are convicted. But the people who are injured by a drunk driver also deserve compensation. If insurance won’t cover the costs, the civil court system is ready to make them pay.
