A 38-year-old woman made a deadly decision to drive after she had been drinking, which led to a fatal accident. The accident happened Sunday night on Interstate 65 in Nashville, Tennessee. The driver was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes when she collided head-on with another vehicle. The driver of the other vehicle, a 41-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene, and his 32-year-old passenger was taken to the hospital in serious condition. The at-fault driver was also transported to the hospital for injuries and authorities stated that upon her release she will be charged with vehicular homicide by intoxication and vehicular assault.
Accidents involving drunk drivers are so common that most everyone has either been a victim themselves or knows someone who has been involved. Unfortunately, the statistics on drunk driving accidents prove that 28 people are killed each day in America, according to Mothers Against Drunk Driving. If you have been injured or lost a family member due to the reckless decision of drinking and driving, contacting an auto accident attorney is important in holding that person responsible.
