Single Vehicle Accident Causes Fatality
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
A fatal one-vehicle
auto-accident took place on Friday, December 1st in Millard County, Utah. The car accident
took place when an eighteen year old, under the influence of alcohol,
drove his vehicle on a rural road around 12:00 at night. As a result of
driving over the speed limit, he lost control of his vehicle - which after
his attempt to overcorrect, flipped multiple times before coming to a
stop in a field. The passenger, fifteen years old, passed away at the
scene of the accident. The driver has been charged with automobile homicide,
failing to remain at the scene of the accident, DUI with serious injury,
and consumption of alcohol by a minor.
Driving under the influence is never acceptable. According to the Center
for Disease Control and Prevention, about 28 people pass away everyday
in an auto-accident involving an alcohol-impaired driver. Additionally,
in regards to drugs other than alcohol - both legal and illegal - they
contribute to about 16% of auto-accidents. Driving while intoxicated is
illegal and easy to avoid. Always use a sober driver when under the influence.
