A St. Louis man has been charged stemming from a fatal auto accident that occurred last month. That accident occurred on March 24 when a 29-year-old man was operating his vehicle while intoxicated. He drove his vehicle into the intersection of McRee Avenue and S. Vandeventer Avenue when he collided with another car. The crash claimed the lives of a 40-year-old man and a 2-month-old infant. The St. Louis police determined that the driver was traveling at a speed of 70 mph in a 30 mph zone while operating his vehicle with a blood alcohol level well above the legal limit. He has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and armed criminal action.
There is no person that is completely risk-free from being injured or killed in an auto accident. The safest of travelers continue to be at-risk due to the reckless driving of others. DUI accidents are the most preventable types of car accidents that claim the lives of thousands of innocent victims each year. There are several groups focused on preventing DUI accidents, including Mother’s Against Drunk Driving. They estimated that there are 28 daily deaths caused by drunk driving. If you have lost a friend or family member because of the actions of another, you may be eligible for compensation.
