Burleson Drunk Driving Crash Takes Life of Woman

Late Saturday night a man struck an Alvarado woman with his vehicle in the 3300 block of Interstate 35 in Burleson.  She tragically suffered fatal injuries. The driver failed field sobriety tests and was charged with intoxicated manslaughter with a vehicle, according to news sources. We offer our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased victim and hope that the driver gets the maximum punishment allowed by Texas law.

Fatal Driving While Intoxicated Crashes in North Texas are a serious problem

A shocking 10,000 Texans lost their lives in DWI collisions in Texas from 2010 to 2017. This number increases each year. About 100 of the victims each year live in the DFW area.

North Texas is at the epicenter of the driving while intoxicated epidemic. Dallas County has almost the highest number of DWI crashes in Texas, not far behind Harris County (Houston) with its much greater population.

This has to stop.

And Saturday night’s tragedy happened near the site of the notorious “Affluenza Teen” crash in 2013 that took the lives of four people and horrifically paralyzed a young man whom this firm represented.

We understand that due to the ruinous pandemic and then the wave of protests against our country’s sinister racial injustice, DWIs probably seem insignificant by comparison. But we cannot afford to overlook them.

Take a look at these horrible statistics and information from the worthwhile organization that combats this deadly problem, Mothers Against Drunk Driving, to learn more about this deadly problem that is entirely preventable.
