Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed in Fatal Drunk Driving Accident in Superior Township

It was Halloween morning. A respiratory therapist at Oakwood Hospital in Wayne, Michigan was on his way to work. The man was stopped at a red traffic light when the drunk driver of a Chevrolet Silverado slammed into his Ford Focus at an estimated 70 – 80 miles per hour. There was no indication that the intoxicated driver attempted to slow down. The impact pushed the pick-up truck over the top of the Focus and into another vehicle before it swung back onto the Focus. The driver of the Focus was pronounced dead at the scene. The drunk driver had a blood alcohol level of 0.19; Michigan’s legal limit is .08.

The wife of the deceased man has filed a wrongful death lawsuit alleging that the driver of the Silverado was negligent and reckless by driving under the influence, failing to maintain control of his vehicle and failing to operate at a reasonable speed. She is seeking compensation for mental anguish, funeral expenses, and for the loss of enjoyment in life activities.
