Some may feel that justice has been served following a sentencing for a fatal crash that occurred in February, but for the family of the man killed it will likely still not be enough. The horrific crash happened in Arkansas on Interstate 540 when Alexandra Adams was intoxicated, and crashed her car. After traffic had backed up, a good Samaritan named, Dave Moessner stopped to help Adams, and therefore was hit and killed by another driver on the shoulder of the road. Although Adam's did not directly hit Moessner with her car, it was determined that she was ultimately responsible for his death, and pleaded guilty to negligent homicide, and second-degree battery.
Adams will have to serve at least three consecutive years in jail before she will be eligible for parole. Likewise, she will be placed on a 10 year suspended sentence following her release from prison. At the time of the crash, Adams blood alcohol level was 0.24 which is greatly higher than the legal limit which is, 0.08. Tragically at the time of the crash, Moessner was traveling in his vehicle with his wife on their way to visit their daughter; his wife witnessed him be hit and killed, all directly in front of her eyes.
