drunk-driving-deathsFor how many years has it been drilled in to our heads that you should NOT drink and drive?

20?   30?


But some people don’t seem to ever get the message. A local story just posted by WETM-TV highlights the dangers of drinking and driving:

Northern Tier Woman Charged for Crash

(WETM-TV, Staci-Lyn Honda)

TOWANDA, Pa. (AP) – A northeastern Pennsylvania woman is facing drunk-driving charges after allegedly causing a head-on crash that hospitalized a congressional candidate.

State police say 23-year-old Michele Jordan Merschbach, of Towanda, had a blood-alcohol content of .169 following the June 1 crash that injured Republican Tom Marino. That’s twice the legal limit for drivers.

If you are injured by a drunk driver in New York or Pennsylvania, you should IMMEDIATELY consult with an experienced injury lawyer who can quickly advise you of very important rights you need to be sure are protected. For 24+ years I have been handling accident and malpractice cases in the Twin Tiers for our friends and neighbors, and if I can ever help you feel free to call or e-mail me ASAP.
