A horrific and heartbreaking car wreck in Los Angeles provided a stark reminder of the ramifications from drunk driving. The tragic crash took the lives of a father and two young children.
According to Los Angeles police, a 31-year-old father and his four children were traveling through the intersection at Kendall and University Parkway in a Toyota Camry when an intoxicated motorist reportedly ran a red light and slammed into the Camry, according to CBS Los Angeles. The impact of the crash was so severe that the father of four died at the scene of the accident and the two youngest children in the vehicle (ages 2 and 4, respectively) were transported to the hospital but succumb to their injuries.
Our deepest condolences go out to the family of the victims who are forced to endure this gut-wrenching loss.
Los Angeles police indicated that the motorist who ran the red light appeared to have been under the influence and speeding.
Dangers of Drunk Driving
Despite multiple public safety campaigns providing reminders of the risks associated with drunk driving, many people still throw caution to the wind and get behind the wheel while after consuming a copious amount of alcohol. For example, in 2018, more than 3,500 people died in car wrecks caused by an intoxicated motorist, and that is just in California. Across the country, more than 35,000 people died in alcohol-related car wrecks.
