Man killed in DUI crash; driver faces 21 years in prison

There is no worse tragedy than the loss of life, no matter who it is. It is particularly difficult to find out about those who are getting married ending up in life-ending collisions, because they were just starting their lives with their loved ones.

The saddest part about traffic accidents is that most of them are completely avoidable. If people would take the time to slow down and pay attention, many people could be saved. The same is true in situations where drivers get behind the wheel while intoxicated. There are other options, and choosing to get behind the wheel should never have been one.

Despite that, people do make mistakes. They’re only human, and people don’t always have the best judgment. It would be irresponsible to think that someone would intentionally get drunk and drive with the intention to kill. In most cases, drivers live with the guilt of a death for the rest of their lives.

This case resulted in the widowing of a woman approaching her wedding date. The drunk driver accused of the crash that killed her fiancé before the upcoming wedding has been found guilty. According to an Oct. 5 report, the driver, a 26-year-old woman, had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) that was almost three times the legal limit at the time of the crash.

She failed to stop at a red light, causing the fatal crash on April 21, 2016. Sadly, the impact killed the man and resulted in his wife putting him to rest in his wedding suit. The woman responsible for the collision pleaded guilty. Now, the judge will need to determine the penalties she’ll face. She could go to prison for anywhere between 10.5 and 21 years.

In situations like this one, it’s sad that someone has passed away. It’s also important to make sure the penalties are fair. If someone kills another person while driving drunk, that driver still has a right to a fair trial and just penalty.
