1. Drunk Driving In California Kills A 19 Year Old Anti-Drinking-and Driving
One young girl was 19 when she was killed by a drunk driver. She lived in Southern California while attending college. Ironically, she was part of an anti-drinking-and-driving organization. Her interest in the organization was due to the fact that her own mother was hit by a drunk driver; although the mother lived, her two best friends died in her arms. These stories are touching and poignant.
