hi my name is nicole. my husband and i were on our way to pick up our older daughter from her grandmother's. we were about 3 min away, when we were stoped at a red light. the drunk driver was doing 120 when he hit us. our car was pusshed 40 feet from the intesection. all i can remember was freaking out thinking that my kids were dead. i then opend the door and fell to the ground. my husband took the baby out of the car and she was bleeding from her head because of all the glass that hit her.i then came to get my 3 year old son out of the car i could hardly walk from pain.then the drunk almost ran my husband over while he had our baby in his hands.we then were taken to the hospital to be checked the baby and my son were fine thank god. the police said if it was not for the heavy tools ex in the trunk the back seats would have been at the front. i know angles were with us that night. never ever get into a car if you have been drinking. ever. my children lived thank god but to meny people and young children taking to soon . god bless all the familys that have lost their loved ones due to drinking and driving.it needs to stop, god bless all

Injured for life NEW
by: Anonymous

After the accident I found out I had a fractured neck and was heading to become paralyzed fr the neck down. I went for a 10 hour cervical spine surgery and had rods and 12 screws put in my spine and a bone fusion and 3 level of bone cut out of my spine. I now have permanent spinal cord damage and the function in my body is lost for ever I need help with every thing in my life bathing, grooming and everything down to getting in and out of bed. My husband now will loose function in his right hand and lost his job I can no longer work take care of my precious 4 children. This drunk driver destroyed our lives. I'm on many expensive medication the rest of my life. And need over 3000 per month to have the treatment the rest of my life so it prevents me worse. I get 16 injections every week to control the brutal pain. I have severe post traumatic stress disorder and depression. I could continue on and on, but all I have to say is please think b4 drinking and driving. It truly ruins lives.
