Others simply do not care whether they injure another person or that they are the cause of a fatal accident. Police say a 19-year-old man caused a fatal accident after he had been drinking.
The efforts to reduce the numbers of drunk driving incidents may have helped over the years, but there are still too many drivers who choose to get behind the wheel after they have been drinking alcohol.
