Tragic deaths on Mill Street attributed to suspected drunk driver

As we know, car accidents happen. But, it is the car accidents that are preventable, the ones that seem so avoidable, that are the hardest to witness. A true tragedy occurred in Reno a few weeks ago when two Nevada residents from the next town over sadly lost their lives in a car crash.

It all happened at about 8 o'clock in the evening when a man blew through a red light at the intersection of Rock Boulevard and Mill Street and struck another vehicle. The impact sent the other vehicle flying through the air and it eventually landed upside-down in a nearby field. The driver and passenger in that vehicle were pronounced dead at the scene. The man who allegedly ran the red light suffered non-threatening injuries and appeared to be under the influence, according to officials on the scene.

The driver will be booked for DUI after his time at the hospital. Other charges are likely to follow pending a full investigation of the suspected drunk driving accident by authorities and police. The investigation is still underway; however, upon its completion, it is likely that the driver will be charged with felony DUI if the authorities have found enough evidence. The family members of the man and woman killed in the crash will likely be seeking answers as to what caused this terrible accident.

There cannot be worse news than the unexpected loss of a loved one. When a person's death is so violent and sudden, it often raises a lot of questions. Answers to those questions can be sought by loved ones. There are a few ways to accomplish this and the answers can make a huge difference to loved ones.
