Missouri Man Sentenced to 8 Years in DUi Crash

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

A Missouri man has been sentenced to 8 years in prison after he led police on a high-speed chase and crashed his vehicle in North Pekin, IL. The driver allegedly punched his 32-year-old wife in the face at a gas station and the workers there called police that led to the chase. He was driving under the influence of alcohol as he drove in excess of 100 mph. He and his wife were both ejected from the car as the chase ended in a crash. His wife was hospitalized for serious injuries.

The National Highway Safety Administrations' data states that 28 people die each day in drunk driving crashes in the United States. Whether the victim is a passenger in the drunk drivers' vehicle or in another vehicle, most of the victims of drunk driving accidents are innocent and did not make the reckless decision to drink and drive. Being injured or killed in any accident is a traumatic event and the last thing anyone wants to do is deal with insurance companies.
