Millions of Americans are legally permitted to drive. But does that mean that driving an automobile is a universal right? Absolutely not. From a tender age, people are taught to understand that the ability to drive a car is a privilege afforded only to those who conduct themselves responsibly while driving. Failure to obey state and federal driving laws can, therefore, result in the loss of this valuable privilege.
Driving a car requires complete attention, an awareness of others, and a stringent regard for the safety of other people, both inside and outside the vehicle. Accidents frequently occur when one of these important factors is foregone. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol is an ideal example. Intoxicated drivers are among the highest causes of automobile accidents in the U.S. today. These terrible accidents can not only result in severe physical injuries to others, but they can also result in a wrongful death.
On the night of August 4, 2014, Jerry Johnson, an 18-year-old Saugus, Massachusetts native, was driving his 2012 Dodge Charger with four passengers inside. Mr. Johnson was driving near the intersection of Summer Street and Main Street in Saugus when he suddenly lost control of his vehicle and crashed into several parked cars in a nearby driveway. After hitting the cars, the Charger continued to smash into the side of a house numbered 36 Main Street.
When emergency responders arrived at the scene of the car accident, they discovered that Mr. Johnson was intoxicated. Saugus Police took him into custody. He was later charged with operating under the influence of alcohol, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, and speeding. Saugus Police also have said that more charges are possible.
Although the accident caused significant damage to the parked cars and the house at 36 Main Street, no one was injured or killed by Mr. Johnson’s drunk driving.
