Drunk driver lands into pool, seriously injuring two daughters

An intoxicated Connecticut man recently led police on a high-speed chase on Route 12, causing a serious car accident. The chase ended in Gales Ferry when the car landed into a pool. The wreck not only injured the man, but also his two young daughters, who were occupants in the car.

The two girls, ages 2 and 4, suffered serious injuries in the drunk driving accident. The 4-year-old fractured and ankle, while the 2-year-old required multiple surgeries to repair her arm, which was almost severed. The 25-year-old drunk driver faces numerous criminal charges, including DUI, reckless driving and endangerment, failure to obey police officers, injury to a minor and two accounts of assault with a vehicle.

The man's blood alcohol content (BAC) was almost quadruple the legal limit. Tests showed that he was also high on marijuana at the time of the crash. He is expected to appear in court on June 24.

Drunk driving is a serious situation, especially when an injury accident is involved. The man's recklessness and negligence could have killed his children. Not only will he have to deal with that emotional trauma for the rest of his life, but he will face substantial criminal penalties as well.

He will likely face felony charges, since his actions qualify as aggravated DUI. Not only was his BAC extremely high, but he was driving recklessly with two children in the car and caused serious injury to both. He could get his license revoked, and spend time in jail. He could also be forced to pay hefty fines. If he avoids jail time, he may face many years of probation or community service.
