It all began one dark and rainy night on November 15, 2005, on Highway P in the little town of Richmond, Wisconsin, when Michael Turner, a 50-year-old, very drunk driver with a blood alcohol content of double the legal limit, swerved across the clearly marked double yellow centerline on Highway P, in his big Ford pickup truck, and slammed directly head-on into 17-year-old Ashley Kubicz’s little car . . . with catastrophic results! Trapping her legs in excruciating pain in the car, severing the artery in her left leg (which deprived it of the life-sustaining blood she desperately needed), Ashley clung on courageously while the medics rushed her to hospital. Her injuries were so severe that the doctors had to amputate her leg halfway from her hip to her knee, which effectively ended her dreams of being a softball star. Turner was hauled off to jail, and one more tragic “alcohol-related” drunk driver accident was added to the approximately 630,000 people injured in alcohol-related crashes every year. That’s an average of one person injured approximately every minute of every day of every year.
About 30,000 people a year will suffer permanent work-related disabilities, just like Ashley. Every weekday night from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m., one in 13 drivers is drunk with a blood alcohol content of .08 or higher; and between 1 a.m. and 6 a.m. on weekend mornings, one in seven drivers is drunk. More Americans have died in alcohol-related traffic crashes than in all the wars the United States has been involved in since our country was founded.
