While most people accept that alcohol will always be a part of society, most people also agree that it has no place in vehicles. Despite enormous efforts by authorities to emphasize the dangers of driving under the influence, drunk driving collisions still occur on a daily basis. Sadly, lives are lost in many DUI accidents, and more and more Alabama families have to cope with the loss of loved ones in accidents that could have been prevented.
The family of a 24-year-old woman is now mourning her death after she was killed in an accident on March 4. The woman was a passenger in a vehicle driven by an alleged drunk driver, who apparently lost control of his vehicle and smashed into an embankment. The male driver, who sustained serious injuries, is being held in a detention center, and he now faces a murder charge. His bond was set at $50,000.
