Father Shares The Devastating Aftermath Of His Daughter's Collision With A Drunk Driver
In this heart-wrenching video plea, John Seaman shows the aftermath of his 20-year-old daughter's collision with a drunk driver. Gravely injured from the impact, she survived for 391 days before passing away. Sadly, stories such as this happen every year. According to Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), 2012 saw 10,322 people killed and 345,000 people injured as a result of drunk driving. The study estimates that the collective price tag on this epidemic is as high as $132 billion per year. MADD was formed in 1980 by Candice Lightner after her 13-year-old daughter was killed by a drunk driver. The group's initiatives range from advocating for stiffer penalties for drunk driving to lobbying police for increased sobriety checkpoints.
