Texas Driver In Deadly Crash Admitted to Drinking Beforehand
Car accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, and the causes for even the most tragic and devastating of accidents vary. Sometimes, everyone involved is a victim. They were simply at the wrong place at the wrong time. Other times one or more people involved in an accident were distracted by their cell phone or something else. Even a split second of distraction can cause a fatal accident.
There are other times, however, when someone causes an accident by making poor choices before they even get behind the wheel. When you choose to drink and drive, for example, you put yourself and everyone else around you at risk.
Consider the example of a Texas man that caused an accident in Lubbock last Saturday. According to a report from Everything Lubbock, the crash happened at around 2:15 in the morning. A police officer happened to be there to see the accident happen. One vehicle, driven by a 30-year-old male, was traveling northbound on University Avenue when he hit a second vehicle, driven by a 19-year-old female traveling eastbound on the Marcha Sharp Freeway access road.
The female driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The male driver admitted to the officer that witnessed the accident that he’d been drinking before driving. He sustained moderate injuries and was transported to University Medical Center.
