A 10-year-old girl and her 7-year-old brother were killed in a drunk driving accident last week. The children, along with their 9-year-old sister, were in their grandparents’ car coming home from church when a drunk driver struck the vehicle.
The boy died shortly after the crash, and the 10-year-old girl from his injuries last night. Both the grandparents and the other girl suffered minor injuries but are expected to fully recover.
The 37-year-old man who was drunk behind the wheel is facing two counts of felony drunk driving resulting in death as well as driving with an open container of alcohol.
Our deepest sympathies are with the family and friends of the young victims.
