Texas man killed when drunk driving suspect crashes into home

Bedtime routines often bring the evening to a peaceful close. After what may have been a hectic day, once the kids are in bed, many take comfort in the simple tasks of closing out the world and preparing to sleep. However, for one Texas family, a nighttime routine ended in tragedy at the hands of a man accused of drunk driving.

The 42-year-old father of three was apparently a happy man who loved his family. He came home from work singing and, after spending time with his children, began getting ready for bed. His wife had just gotten out of the shower when a pickup truck plowed through the wall of the bedroom, striking and killing the father. The impact was so powerful, it pinned the woman inside the wall of the house. She was hospitalized with broken ribs and damaged lungs.

Police charged the 18-year-old driver of the pickup truck with intoxication manslaughter with a motor vehicle. His passenger was charged with public intoxication. Friends and neighbors gathered outside the house for a prayer vigil and spoke of forgiveness in the face of this tragedy. Nevertheless, three children are left without a father, and their mother struggles to recover from her injuries.

The future is uncertain for this family and for many in Texas who suffer from the negligence of others. Without knowing where they will live, how they will pay their bills or if they will be able to return to their jobs, victims of drunk driving accidents often seek the guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney. Such an attorney will work tirelessly to potentially obtain the maximum compensation possible under the circumstances.
