Two-Year-Old Tragically Killed in Blackwell Drunk Driving Crash

By Car Accident Help on July 13, 2011

In Blackwell, a 25-year-old woman has been arrested on DUI charges. According to a story by KOCO News, just before 11 p.m. the woman was driving down West Doolin Avenue when she struck another vehicle. The woman was driving a pickup truck and crashed into the back of a Dodge Neon that was carrying a 19-year-old girl, an 18-year-old girl, and a 2-year-old. The two women were taken to the hospital but their condition is unknown. The child was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. The 25-year-old woman was arrested on charges of driving under the influence, second-degree murder, possession of marijuana, and possession of hydrocodone and alprazolam without a prescription.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) statistics, nationwide 10, 839 people were killed in alcohol-impaired-driving-crashes in 2009 (the most recent year for which statistics are available). On average one alcohol-impaired driving fatality occurred every 48 minutes in 2009. In that same year, 14 percent of children age 14 and younger who died in motor vehicle crashes were killed in an alcohol-impaired-driving crash. Of those 14 percent, about half were occupants of a vehicle whose driver had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher and 15 percent were pedestrians or pedalcyclists struck by a driver with a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher.

While all 50 states have laws against driving under the influence, some irresponsible people chose not to obey the law, often with deadly consequences.
