Just down the street from my office on University Drive early on Sunday morning, Renee Horton, a 24 year old woman from Wichita Falls was killed when a drunk driver crashed into a car behind her. The drunk driver was arrested and charged with intoxication manslaughter. A police officer had seen the drunk driver speeding by my building, but had not been able to stop him before the fatal crash.
It is amazing how many people get behind the wheel and drive knowing they are intoxicated. I have sued drunk drivers and it is one of my goals to use the legal system to stop them from causing death and injury to innocent victims.
