The combined impact of both vehicles was like slamming into a wall at 120 mph. Bottom line: this is what drunk driving looks like and not a soul alive deserves to be put through this kind of life-altering trauma due to the irresponsible and disgraceful actions of others. I just want to say how deeply grateful I am to all of you who have kept my Mom in your thoughts and prayers these last critical 48 hours. I can’t even begin to tell you how much strength and faith my entire family has gained from all of your support. My Mom remains in critical condition as Doctors continue to care for her around the clock. Every positive thought, every prayer and kind word is appreciated more than words can even express. To my close friends and family who have reached out: I have received your messages and I’m terribly sorry I have not been able to communicate more. We are praying for my Mom’s survival from this awful tragedy and the next several days will be crucial. Thank you again and I will keep you all posted. Anyone who knows my Mom knows she is a fighter and a survivor, as well as having the most beautiful and loving spirit of anyone on the planet. She did not deserve this. No one does.

Hi friends, just wanted to give you all an update on my Mom. The good news is that although she remains in ICU, she is improving slightly everyday and every improvement is a blessing. It is nothing short of a miracle she has made it this far. She is not out of the woods yet by any means but we are focused on the positive. Reading through all your messages and I’m honestly shocked how many people have been affected by drunk driving in their own lives and families. Thank you all again for sharing your stories. The statistic is that every 53 minutes someone dies from drunk driving. Unbelievable. This is just the beginning of the conversation for me regarding this. We have to be smarter and do even more to try and stop this epidemic that affects 1 out 3 people in this country.
