Drunk driving has no place on the roads in America. Even a single night driving while intoxicated could lead to a crash with serious repercussions. A person who made a mistake could end up facing serious charges, and victims could be at a loss while they struggle to recover or deal with the loss of loved ones.
Take, for example, this case out of Colorado. A man in Colorado was killed while helping friends on a music tour. According to the news from Aug. 27, the man was killed and six others were injured while in Elk Grove.
The news reports that three of the injuries were serious, and three others were minor. The 30-year-old musician was the only person killed in the collision. The extent of the other injuries was not reported.
The story explains that the van of people was traveling at approximately 2:30 a.m., when a driver of another vehicle collided with them on northbound Interstate 5. It's believed by the Colorado Highway Patrol that the driver of the other vehicle was intoxicated at the time of the crash.
One of the band members remains in critical condition as of the time of the news release, showing just how serious this crash was. It isn't known if the driver of the other vehicle was harmed in the collision.
Crashes like this don't have to happen, and it's a tragedy when they do. Your family has a right to speak up and seek compensation for injuries and wrongful deaths that happen as a result of a person's negligent acts.
