“Sue” (not a real person) visits the spot once a week. There’s not much there; it’s just a crossroads in a rural area. But she diligently brings flowers and lays them at the foot of a small wooden cross beside the intersection. That’s where the father of her first-grade son, “Nick,” was killed by a drunk driver last fall.
He was on his way home from work on Thursday evening when he arrived at the three-way intersection. There was nobody there but him, but he was a law-abiding driver and came to a full stop. The driver behind him, approaching at more than 60 miles per hour, did not. She was also on her way home from work, but not directly. She had first visited a local bar for a happy hour that turned into nearly three hours.
Police said it appeared that Nick’s dad had tried to get out of the other driver’s way, but starting from a full stop, he didn’t have enough time. The impact on his driver’s side rear quarter sent him off the roadway and down a ravine. He was pronounced dead at the scene. The other driver was charged with DUI and driving with a suspended license.
Sue has barely had time to grieve. Nick’s half-siblings have gone to live with their mother, but the loss of her partner’s income has left her begging for loans and other financial help from relatives in order to pay the rent on her family’s apartment.
Her attorney told her she had a robust case for action against both the other driver and the operator of the bar where the driver had become intoxicated, but he knew any money would be months (if not years) away. Knowing how badly Sue needed financial help, he told her to call USClaims.
