Jacksonville Area Drunk Driver Drives the Wrong Way and Causes Fatal Accident

A drunk driver was driving the wrong way on I-95 in the Jacksonville, Florida area yesterday and caused a head-on collision killing the drunk driver and a mother in the other vehicle, according to an article on www.News4Jax.com. Another thirteen year old victim suffered a broken neck in the crash.

The drunk driver had a blood alcohol level of .20, according to the article. That is twice the legal blood alcohol limit of .08. When a person is convicted of DUI with a blood or breath alcohol level of .20 or higher, it subjects a person to increased DUI penalties in terms of a much higher fine, more jail time and an increased mandatory ignition lock device period.
