Drinking and Driving: A Deadly Combination in Illinois

Why aren’t drivers getting the message that drinking and driving don’t mix? Why can’t they see that this is a dangerous, sometimes fatal combination? The family of 19 year-old Kevin Benes learned this the hard way when a drunk driver slammed into the young Illinois man’s car last Dec 11, causing his death.

His family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Michael Bourdage, the man accused of driving drunk and causing the crash. The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages in excess of $50,000. Bourdage, 24, also faces criminal charges.

Scott McKenna, the Benes’ family attorney, stated that the boy’s parents want to see to it that “justice is done”. “The bottom line is, Mr. Bourdage needs to be held responsible for what he did”.

Serious auto accidents involving serious injuries and/or death are often the consequence of drinking and driving.
