Lost My Friend To A Drunk Driver
The Cost Of Drunk Driving
I lost my friend to a drunk driver about ten years ago:
My friend and her family were returning from an outing when her car was hit by a drunk driver.
Her husband was driving, and they had just gotten on the freeway. She was attending to the children and the event was very close to the on-ramp, and she didn't have her seatbelt on.
The car was hit so hard that it threw it from the highway into the ditch. She was ejected from the car and it ran her over.
She left behind her husband and two school-age children.
I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your friend due to a drunk driver.
Even though the accident was 10 years ago, I'm sure the loss still affects the family and those that love them, even to this day.
The loss of a loved one is always so sad, but when it comes so unexpectedly and without warning, it is even harder to bear. Particularly when it was senseless and completely avoidable.
Thank you for taking a few minutes to tell us about your friend. I hope that all of her family and friends have found some healing over time.
