Grieving Father Heartbreaking Shares Story Of Losing His Daughter To A Drunk Driver

Viewer beware: this video is full of heartwrenching emotion and might be a little hard to watch - we urge you to do so anyway, because the message that it carries is that important. Rick Ellis lost his beautiful daughter Lindsey to a drunk driver. She was only 6 years old. Partly as a way to vent his own frustrations and sorrows, and partly to spread awareness of the very real costs of drunk driving, Ellis took to social media and posted the following video of him visiting his daughter's grave. 

"I’m going to show you something that is the end result of your partying on Friday nights, Saturday nights, whenever," he says. "Want to get drunk, play around, get stupid? This is what happens…" Perhaps the saddest part of this whole story is that when Ellis turns the camera around, we find out the drunk driver who killed Lindsey was her own mother, who also perished in the crash.

Be sure to SHARE this heartbreaking warning with your family and friends.

H/T: Rick Ellis
