A man who Alabama state police have said was under the influence of alcohol and illegal substances is headed to the courtroom for trial. Car accidents claim numerous victims across the nation's highways every year, but when the wreck may have been caused by an intoxicated driver, then the tragedy may seem even worse because it didn't need to happen. One man has been reportedly stolen from his young family due to just such a wreck.
The accident occurred more than a year ago, but the man is just now headed for a jury trial. He has entered a plea of not guilty in answer to this fatal wreck. Witnesses' reports of the accident state that the accused driver was traveling erratically at the time just prior to the wreck. He was said to have run off the road and then over-steered to get back on the road, before then crossing the center dividing line.
