Alabama State Troopers said a man driving a Honda Accord struck and killed Danny Horne, 40, after the impaired driver left the road at a high rate of speed and collided with numerous other vehicles before coming to a complete stop. State troopers involved found numerous beer cans in the vehicle of the DUI accident suspect, whose name was not released at the time of cited article. The Talladega District Attorney’s Office said they plan to charge the suspect with manslaughter and DUI at this time.
These types of accidents are both tragic and completely unnecessary. One of the ways to deter this type of conduct is to hold the responsible suspect accountable on all fronts including both criminal and civil prosecution. While the District Attorney will handle the criminal aspect, a personal injury attorney will be needed to handle the wrongful death civil component.
