Drunk Driving Accident Pictures

Most of us are insulated from the harsh reality of the drunken driving problem. Our police and fire departments are usually quick on the scene to sweep the mess away. We can read the statistics about people killed or injured by drunk drivers, but when we see some of the pictures and read the stories about how people are affected, it can drive the message home that these victims are real people with real families, and these drunken drivers are causing real deaths, injuries and property damage.

The stories and pictures on this site are intended to give you a glimpse into the pain and suffering that occurs on our streets and highways every day and to put a face on some of the many thousands of people who are affected every year by alcohol impaired drivers.
