Drunk Driver Hits Family Killing 9-year-old boy


Police have arrested Randolph S. James of Troy, Missouri on suspicion of drunk driving following a car accident that took place in Lincoln County, Missouri around 5:40 a.m. on Wednesday. Randolph James crossed the center line and smashed into a car carrying the Simpson family. David D. Simpson, Angela Simpson and Dana Simpson all from Winfield, Missouri suffered moderate injuries in the crash. Unfortunately, David W. Simpson, 9 years old, died from the injuries he sustained in the crash.

The wrongful death of David W. Simpson is tragic and my heart goes out to the Simpson family. I will keep the family in my prayers.

Drunk driving accidents are one of the leading causes of wrongful deaths and catastrophic injuries in this country. Drunk drivers that injure innocent people should be criminally prosecuted to the maximum extent possible under the laws. Additionally, they should be held financially accountable for the damage they do to innocent people and their families. I sue drunk drivers and force them to pay big. I also sue the bar that continued to feed alcohol to the intoxicated patron and then allowed them to drive. There is no excuse for driving drunk and injuring an innocent person. Therefore, you should be forced to financially compensate the victim of the car accident.
