A 23-year-old woman has been arrested on multiple charges, including vehicular homicide, possession of a controlled substance, and driving under the influence after a fatal crash on the Boulder Turnpike, according to 9 News. In the early hours of the morning, the woman had gotten onto US 36 in the wrong direction in Westminster, and crashed into an Acura that was traveling the correct direction. The driver and a passenger in the Acura were injured, but the passenger in the woman’s own Ford SUV was killed at the scene. The eastbound lanes of the Turnpike had to be closed down for several hours while the scene was cleared and investigated.

Drunk driving causes serious problems all over the country. While there is really no consensus on how to solve the problem of drunk driving in America, it is clear that the victims can be anyone. In many cases, the person who ends up dying in a drunk driving accident is a passenger with the drunk driver. In fact, by some estimates, more than half of all children aged 14 and under who are killed in drunk driving accidents are passengers in the car with a drunk driver. While there is certainly plenty of debate about what constitutes drunk driving and what doesn’t, and some statistics may be misleading or even inaccurate, those argument s tend to exist outside the real world. However, there are many examples every year of real people who are seriously injured because of the actions of drivers who are clearly drunk.
