PA Injury Lawyers Helping Those Injured By A Drunk Driver
Cinco de Mayo was just yesterday and it didn’t take long for an accident to occur that is suspected of being alcohol-related. In the early morning hours, around 2:00 am, a work van was traveling the wrong direction on PA State Route 30 when he collided head-on with a state patrol K-9 SUV. The officer was pronounced dead at the scene, and his K-9 partner would not leave his side despite the dog’s injuries. Our condolences go out to this man’s family members, as the driver of the work van is now being investigated for DUI.
Deadliest Driving Days of The Year
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), some of the most deadly driving days are centered around holidays. Not surprisingly, those numbers are amplified for ‘drinking’ holidays like New Year’s Eve, St. Patrick’s Day, and Cinco de Mayo. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that there were 10,322 people killed by a drunk driver in 2012. There were over 1.4 million drivers arrested for DUI in 2010.
