Drunk Driver Hits 2 Bicyclists, Kills 1

I write so often about the devastation drunk drivers cause. It makes me angry and sad to have to do so yet again. At about 10:10 pm on Monday, June 4th, a 50-year-old Galveston woman turning from Weiss Drive southbound onto 69th Street in Galveston suddenly encountered a group of 5 bicyclists and plowed into two of them. One of the victims suffered a broken arm, but the other received far more extensive injuries and was rushed to John Sealy Hospital’s emergency room. That individual died the following morning. The drunk driver was arrested at the scene and jailed in lieu of a $100,000 bond, and while she was initially charged with intoxication assault, a new charge of intoxication murder will now be added.

Once again, if you or a loved one is ever injured by a drunk driver, please consider calling us. We are very good at holding such irresponsible people fully accountable for the tragic and terrible harm they cause.
