A man accused of drunk driving faces two counts of vehicular homicide and a 2nd DWI, among other charges, after he rear-ended a vehicle while driving on I-10 over the Mississippi River Bridge, killing two passengers. Three others were transported to the hospital and treated for injuries that were not life-threatening. The accident remains under investigation.
Driving under the influence is an epidemic that continues to claim the lives of innocent motorists across Louisiana, landing irresponsible motorists in jail and leaving families devastated over the loss of loved ones. Last year, over 3,200 people were injured and over 250 more were killed in alcohol-related motor vehicle crashes. Those injured in drunk driving collisions may be entitled to compensation for hospital bills, vehicle damage, lost work wages, and pain/suffering, among other damages. If you or a loved one has been injured in a vehicular collision where the driver was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you should immediately consult a personal injury attorney who can assess your difficult situation and obtain the relief that you deserve.
