Drunk Driving Accidents in San Antonio
Here in San Antonio we are a city enriched with cultural celebrations with events like Fiesta, Dia de Los Muertos, Cinco de Mayo, and St. Patrick’s Day. On some of these holidays, schools will close for festivals, and parades that will take place bringing thousands of people from all over San Antonio to celebrate these wonderful events. The downfall of these events where thousands of people will gather is all types of food and alcohol will be served, contributing to people leaving these events intoxicated. Unfortunately, many of these people make the poor decision to drink and drive. Tragedy strikes when the laughter and celebrations end with a drunk driver hurting or worse, killing, someone in a drunk driving accident.
