An accident involving a drunk driver earlier this week resulted in critical injuries to an infant after the ambulance it was riding in was struck by a drunk driver on Highway U.S. 52 in North Carolina.
Both vehicles were traveling southbound on U.S. 52 when a car collided with the ambulance resulting in both drivers losing control.
The driver that caused this wreck is being charged with driving while impaired, failure to reduce speed, and driving with no license. The driver who caused the accident had a blood alcohol level of .19 which is .11 above the legal limit (.08) in North Carolina.
Unfortunately, the infant who suffered from critical injuries later passed away. Our deepest condolences go out to the families involved in this tragic accident. To read the full story click here.
Drinking and driving is a preventable, careless act that puts everyone at risk. There is no excuse to get behind the wheel intoxicated. Here are some signs to look out for while on the road to detect a drunk driver:
- Driving in the center of the road or lane
- Abrupt turns or illegal turns
- Inappropriate stopping
- Erratic braking
- Driving without headlights
All of these are signs to look out for while on the road. If you think someone is drunk driving pull over and call 9-1-1 immediately to report the driver. Make sure to give a detailed description of the car, driver and if possible get the license number to report.
