Previously, we’ve often discussed the unpredictable nature of car accidents. Accidents can come out of nowhere. You can be doing everything right, following every traffic law, and another driver who isn’t can cause a serious wreck.
There are many factors that can lead to a motorist driving negligently. Often they’re driving distracted, like while texting or eating, but one of the most inexcusable forms of negligent driving is driving while intoxicated. A drunk driver can cause immeasurable damage, and a drunk driving car accident can affect you when you’re not even in your vehicle.
Saturday afternoon, a Colorado Springs family found out that you’re not safe from an intoxicated driver even when you’re in your home. A driver who’d had far too much to drink was speeding down Lancaster Drive when he lost control of his car. He ended up smashing into the front of their home, plowing all the way through their wall.
He tried to flee the scene on foot, but he was quickly nabbed by police after suffering minor injuries in the crash. He was ultimately ticketed for DUI. The accident could have been much worse, however. Fortunately, the family wasn’t home at the time of the accident, so they avoided being injured by the drunk driver’s out-of-control journey.
