Drunk driving crash victim hopes people won't drink and drive
BEAUMONT - By Justin Hinton, KFDM NewsA drunk driver left Dani Simien, 25, paralyzed after crashing into his car six years ago.He wants people to stop drinking and driving, especially those celebrating during the July 4th holiday.Since the third grade, I wanted to be a firefighter, but that's not going to happen anymore, he said.Simien says he just dropped off his prom date in 2006 when a drunk driver struck his car on Highway 69 in Port Arthur, starting a chain reaction of events.When we hit, it was a head-on collision, and my car spun back into traffic and a car behind me hit me on the driver side and spun me back around, and I think actually the second time I was hit on the driver's side, I think that's how I broke my spine and it was broken in half, Simien said.The 25-year-old broke both ankles, both knees, both thigh bones, his spine, six left ribs and damaged his kidneys, lungs, liver and heart in the wreck. He also had a severe brain injury. Doctors werent sure if he would live. Despite the odds against him, hes still alive. He credits that to God.I feel like Im just another soldier trying to do good and tell my story and help other people, he said.Simien partnered with Mothers Against Drunk Driving, M.A.D.D., to share his story in hopes that people will learn from what happened to him.What I'm doing now, speaking, it's still like I'm saving lives even though I'm not running into burning buildings, talking to people telling my story because I don't want nobody to live my life, Simien said.

'Affluenza' Teen Drunk Driver Sued By Victims
"A wealthy Texas teenager who got no jail time for killing four pedestrians while driving drunk still faces three civil lawsuits filed by victims' family members, NBC's Dallas affiliate reports. Many of those family members were outraged when 16-year-old Ethan Couch got probation after a psychologist testified he had "affluenza" — meaning he thought he was immune from punishment because he was rich. Couch's family may still be on the hook for millions in related civil litigation, though. (Unlike a criminal case, Couch can't be sentenced to jail or be found guilty. He could, however, be found liable and have to pay a monetary penalty.)"* The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down. *Read more here from Erin Fuchs / Business Insider: http://www.businessinsider.com/ethan-couch-faces-five-civil-suits-2013-12 Download audio and video of the full two hour show on-demand + the members-only post game show by becoming a member at http://www.tytnetwork.com/member-options/.

Family of bus driver killed in drunk driving wreck makes public plea
San Benito Consolidated Independent School District bus drivers honk their horns as they pass the spot where their colleague Juan Espinoza died last week along FM 732. The gesture of love can be heard from a makeshift memorial where Juan's mother Minerva Espinoza and sister Oralia Elorza are gathered around it to grieve. "I want him back," Oralia said. The 38-year-old was killed on February 22nd when his motorcycle was hit head on by another vehicle near Leal Elementary School.. Juan was on his way to work at the time. Police say the other driver, 21-year-old Felipe Sanchez, Jr., was drunk. "We need to get letters," Oralia said. "We need to petition. We need to bring up the sentence for drunk drivers. I mean when are they going to stop." The victim's family wants the suspect to receive the maximum punishment possible with no plea deal. They're asking for the public's help in the name of all victims of drunk driving. "I'm asking for letters," Oralia said. "I'm asking for [the public] you to email me so I can present them to the D.A. so he doesn't get a lesser [sentence]... I don't want him to get a plea bargain." It's a fear that only adds to their pain. Oralia knows her brother's smile will only live on in her memory. She wants his killer to live out as much of his life behind bars. "You have to pay," she said. The suspect was denied bond last week. Court records show Sanchez also had served six months in jail for deadly conduct and was out on probation at the time of his arrest for Espinoza's death. Authorities had filed a motion to revoke his probation back in January for violating the terms of his release, according to the records. If anyone would like to write a letter pushing for the maximum punishment in this case, can email the victim's family here: [email protected] Click here to join Ryan Wolf's Facebook Page Click here to follow Ryan Wolf on Twitter

Mother of Drunk Driving Victim Speaks Out About Lower BAC Recommendation
As we all know, drunk driving is illegal but people do it anyway. Now the National Transportation Safety Board is making a recommendation they believe could help eliminate the problem. They're suggesting that states should lower the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limit in an effort to keep impaired drivers off the road. For example, just two drinks for a woman who is 120 pounds could put her BAC between .06 and .08. It's a tragedy most people think will never happen to them but according to the NTSB, 10,000 people are killed on the roads in alcohol-impaired crashes each year. But the agency is on a mission to get that number down to zero. The NTSB is recommending all states drop the BAC limit from .08 down to .05. "A lot of people say well 'I'm ok at an .05.,'" Debra Linton, the mother of a drunk driving victim, said. "There is a delay there and they've proven that statistically." NTSB officials say this move could help save hundreds of lives each year and Debra Linton agrees. "Now with this traffic as bad as it is, and you introduce alcohol into it, it's just crazy," Linton said. Debra knows first hand the consequences of drunk driving. In 2006, she and her 18-year-old daughter Kayla were driving back home to Andrews in separate vehicles when Kayla was hit head on by a drunk driver. Debra was just a few minutes behind her daughter when she drove up on the accident. Kayla was killed instantly. "We loved her dearly, she loved us. It's just senseless," Debra said. "I found out later that night that it was a drunk driver and within a couple of days I knew I wanted her car in a trailer to educate people about drinking and driving." She's now a volunteer for Stop DWI in Midland. According to a study by the NTSB, nearly 1,300 Texans were killed in drunk driving accidents between 2008 and 2010. Debra said the lowered limit could make people think twice before getting behind the wheel. "If it would prevent it, I'm all for it," she said. "You may think you're ok but your BAC will tell different." She said many people may not like the recommendation however she hopes Kayla's story might make them see otherwise. "She's got a niece now that she never met so it's not about us anymore. It's about saving all those people out there and keeping your families safe," Debra said. It's up to each state to decide if they want to lower their BAC limit.

Highway Sign in Memory of DUI Crash Victim - San Diego County Sheriff's Department
A sign is now up at the intersection of Mission Gorge Road and SR-125 North in Santee in memory of a woman killed by a drunk driver. The Sheriff's Department unveiled the sign with media present in January. The goal is to remind people not to drink and drive. On September 20, 2009, a 17-year-old girl decided to get behind the wheel of a car while intoxicated on alcohol and drugs. As she left a party in La Mesa, she struck a car, injuring that driver. The teen then left the scene of the crash and drove to Santee. When she came off SR-125 at more than 70 miles per hour, she struck the SUV of Pamela Sue Marabeas on Mission Gorge Road. The mangled SUV is now being used in Sheriff's Start Smart classes as a visual reminder of the deadly consequences of drunk driving. Since June 2010, free Start Smart classes have been regularly offered to new drivers and their parents/guardians so they clearly understand their responsibilities when a teen starts to drive. The class also clarifies the restrictions of a provisional license and social host rules in the county. For more information on a Start Smart class near you, visit sdsheriff.net/co_startsmart.html. Our thanks to Erin Limonchi, the daughter of Pamela Marabeas for speaking at the event and for graciously donating her mother's car to spread the message against drunk driving.

NEEDED: Help for Filipina victim of alleged drunk driving incident in Singapore
UPDATED (as of July 17, 2013): A kababayan in Singapore needs your help... Saleslady Maricel Tanaotanao, 28, was ran over by an alleged drunk driver last March 2013. The impact was so severe, she was comatose for almost a month. When she woke up, she could not move her left arm and left leg, and suffers from short-term memory loss. Still, her doctors considered her case a miracle. Maricel had undergone 4 operations in 3 months, including partial artificial skull replacement and a hole puncture in her throat. She now owes Tan Tock Seng Hospital about S$120,000*. As much as she wants to, she cannot go home to Naga because her body is too weak to endure the flight back to the Philippines. Maricel is now confined at Econ Medicare Centre, 58 Braddell Road, Level 2 Bed 10 - where she is undergoing therapy. She will have to stay in Singapore for an undetermined length of time to recuperate. Maricel needs YOUR HELP, OUR HELP to pay for her continuous hospitalization, therapy and daily cost of living as the case against the driver who hit her remains pending. Her mother, Arceli, is now taking care of her, surviving on the charity of those who have become aware of Maricel's sorry plight. Arceli, a domestic helper in Hong Kong, had to quit her job to attend to her daughter in Singapore. For donations or to help Maricel, please contact HOME (Humanitarian Organization for Migration Economics) at +65 6337 1171 only from 10am-6pm, Mon-Fri. Look for Ms Bridget Tan or Ms Dominica. HOME is a registered charity so any donations to Maricel through HOME will be tax exempted. To donors, please provide HOME your name, IC/FIN, address and contact number. You will also get a receipt of your donations. Only donation enquiries will be entertained. Legal enquiries and such will not be entertained at +65 6337 1171. A community service by OFW PINOY STAR.

UPDATE: The case filed against the driver that hit Maricel TanaoTanao is "allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol/drunken driving" and no longer "hit and run". UPDATE (July 17): "The insurance company has kindly, on a without prejudice basis, made payment of Tan Tock Seng Hospital medical bills amounting to about $120,000." - HOH Law Corp, Maricel's legal counsel

Chicago Drunk Driving Accident Lawyer
Chicago Drunk Driving Lawyers at Abels & Annes, P.C. http://www.daveabels.com/drunk-driving-accidents.html No driver should operate a vehicle after she has been drinking, but the unfortunate reality is that drunk driving incidents happen every week in Chicago. Some of these motorists are apprehended by police before they can do any permanent harm but in other scenarios, a drunk driver is not stopped until after a car accident takes place. Following a collision, victims may think that an official police investigation or criminal charges will serve their interests in the matter. But any fines or fees assessed by a criminal or traffic court will not go to benefit the victims of a collision who were hurt, even if they need that money to pay for their medical expenses. Instead, victims must seek their own relief through the use of a civil claim, and working with a personal injury attorney can help a victim through the process. From filing a claim to the resolution of the matter, it is a victim's right to work with an attorney she chooses. Drunk driving accidents often cause harm to innocent victims, whether they are inside the same vehicle as an intoxicated motorist, in another vehicle, walking nearby as a pedestrian, or even riding a bicycle. The harm can range from minor injuries to the loss of life and some of the damages may never be able to be righted regardless of the compensation that is available. If you were injured by a drunk driver in Illinois or if someone you love was killed, call the personal injury attorneys at Abels & Annes, P.C. today. We offer a case consultation without cost or obligation to all victims who call us and we have a licensed lawyer standing by 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Family of a woman killed by a drunk driver reacts to 8 year prison sentence
BEAUMONT-By: Leslie Rangel Derek McBride, 25 years-old will serve 8 years behind bars for driving drunk and causing an accident that killed Amber Roussel of Louisiana and injured her husband Ryan Roussel. In court today, Roussel's family gathered to see how the judge would punish McBride. Those first 11 minutes after the accident, that's the hardest 11 minutes I've ever had in my life, it was the toughest and most tragic experience I've ever been through. Roussel told McBride during the victim's impact statement. Ryan says he remembers screaming for his wife at the top of his lungs saying how much he needed her. His wife died within minutes. Roussel looked at McBride in court describing the blood, the frantic efforts to save his wife and the loss of a woman who was his best friend. That was the hardest part, just to see if he actually felt what I was saying or felt what I was feeling to see if he was remorseful at all, Roussel says. Lauren Broud, Amber's biological daughter says it all feels like a bad dream, I was thinking, it's wrong, they're going to wake up just like they can bring someone back in the movies. But no, there was no phone call saying mom I'm all right, there was no phone call saying I'll be back tomorrow and there's still none. No calls to help the broken family now leaning on picture and memories. I wish and pray that I just had one more minute, that's all I need, just one more minute to hold her hands look her in the eyes and just tell her how completely I love her, Ryan said. McBride is eligible for parole in 4 years.
