DUI Car Accident Kills 1 On Christmas Morning
Tragedy struck Fort Worth on Christmas morning when a car accident involving a drunk driver killed one person. The accident happened before 5 a.m. on the 4800 block of Miller where a white Ford and tan GMC crashed in what appeared to be a head-on collision. As reported, the accident left one person dead, and a 17-year-old was arrested and faced charges of intoxicated manslaughter with a vehicle. In Texas, these charges are second-degree felony and the youth faces imprisonment between 2 and 20 years.
What Are the Consequences of a DUI Car Accident?
Aside from a surviving drunk driver promptly being taken into custody, DUI accidents often end in serious injuries or death for those involved. Those who survive a DUI car accident often end up with life-changing injuries that result in physical, emotional, and financial problems. From an accumulation of expensive hospital and therapy bills to wages lost due to the temporary or permanent inability to work, any car accident can be an incident that affects an entire family for years to come.
