According to the Sun Herald (MS), a 29-year-old woman, while putting her 4-year-old child into the back seat of her car in a business parking lot, was struck by another car driven by a drunk driver.Â A 26-year-old driver veered off Pass Road in Gulfport and crashed into the deceased, pinning her between the two cars.Â The woman died four hours later in surgery.Â Fortunately, the child was not harmed.Â The driver was charged with DUI causing death.
Drunk driving car accidents can cause catastrophic and fatal results.Â Mississippi police have made 1292 arrests for DUI in the last 12 months and currently fund campaigns such as â€śOver the Limit, Under Arrestâ€ť to warn residents of the dangers of drunken driving.Â Drivers who have been drinking alcohol are more likely to get in a car wreck, and in Mississippi it is against the law for an adult to drive when his or her blood alcohol content is .08 or greater.
