Groom Killed on Wedding Day

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

On what was supposed to be one of the best days of their lives, a groom, bride, and two of their friends were in a serious truck crash. The accident killed the groom, a passenger, and left the bride and driver in serious condition. The accident took place in Ohio around 4 p.m. Saturday, only a few hours after the bride and groom exchanged vows. Alcohol is believed to be the cause of the crash, based on statements from people that attended the wedding.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an accident caused by a drunk driver happens every two minutes in the United States. They also claim that every two in three people will be involved in a drunk driving accident at some point during their lifetime. Most people realize the risk they are taking by operating a vehicle while intoxicated; however, with their impaired judgment, those people don't always consider the danger they are opposing upon themselves and other innocent people.
