other car crashedLast week, the Durham police arrested a 31-year-old man who allegedly drove his vehicle into the back of Nissan driven by a 38-year-old man.  This resulted in a crash, where the victim’s Nissan tumbled along I-40.  The victim was pronounced dead on the scene.

The driver, who was left unscathed, was sent to Wake County Correctional Facility and charged with felony death by motor vehicle.  His bail was set at $50,000.  The victim hailed from Goodlettsville, Tennessee, and was driving home from a weekend comedy show.  He is survived by his wife and daughter.

The worst is bound to happen when you decide to get behind the wheel of a vehicle after consumption of alcohol.  Your impressions of the world around you are skewed, and decision making abilities are materially depreciated.  Please, make plans for a designated driver when you know that you are going to be drinking.  Your life, and the lives of those affected by such a decision can be forever altered.
