Drunk Driver Destroys A Family Forever!
The Victims Of Drunk Driving
Several years ago, a friend of mine was involved in a car accident (result of a drunk driver) that changed her life forever.
She was a young wife and mother of 2 small children. Her son was 3, her baby girl only 9 months old.
On a warm summer evening, on their way back from a Drive-In movie, their car was hit head-on by a drunk driver.
Her husband and baby daughter were both killed. Her son needed lots of surgery, including a metal plate in his head. She had minor injuries (broken bones, a punctured lung etc...).
At the scene of the accident, the reality of this tragedy was surreal when one glanced upon the baby bottle in the road, and the single tiny shoe covered in blood.
The baby was buried in her daddy's arms, I sight I hope Never to see again!
My friend recovered from her injuries, as did her son, although he still has many health issues, as well as that metal plate still in his head.
An accident that could have been prevented if only the guy in the other car had not got behind the wheel that night.....
What a tragic drunk driving story! My heart goes out to your poor friend to have endured such suffering and loss.
If only people would truly THINK before they decided to drink and particularly drink and drive. The possibilities of horrific consequences are so real.
A drunk driver can destroy a family forever - even their own.
Thank you for sharing this sad tale as a reminder to all of us of the devastating consequences of drunk driving.
