DUI suspected in collision that hospitalizes three

Every motor vehicle accident has the potential to cause serious injuries, but drunk driving accidents seem to be all the more likely to result in very serious injuries and fatalities. There are likely a number of factors that lead to the frequency with which drunk driving accidents lead to catastrophic injuries. Those driving under the influence often have a dangerous combination of decreased judgment and capacity, while at the same time having increased confidence and willingness to take risks.

A two-car collision early Sunday morning in Grand Rapids provides a stark illustration of how devastating a drunk driving accident can be. According an article in the Grand Rapids Press, the collision ejected two men from one of the cars resulting in critical injuries to both men. The driver of the other vehicle sustained multiple broken bones and internal injuries. Police believe that alcohol was a factor in the accident.

According to law enforcement authorities a 22-year-old man and his 22-year-old passenger were driving east on 28th street when their car veered into the oncoming lane. At the same time a 28-year-old man was driving west on the same street. The collision ejected both of the two 22-year-old men from their vehicle causing serious head and other internal injuries.

While not every car accident is foreseeable, those who get behind the wheel after having consumed alcohol should be aware that they are putting themselves and every other person on the road at risk of critical injury or death. After years of public education programs and law enforcement efforts it is nearly inconceivable that anyone could fail to appreciate the dangerous situation they are creating by driving drunk.
