No one should ever lose sight of the fact that an accident means no one purposely caused harm. It was a mistake on someone’s part, and to make mistakes is human. Mistakes that involve driving under the influence are treated particularly harshly, but no one should have to suffer unduly for a mistake, especially if it’s the first time. A good attorney is very important to protect the rights of everyone involved.
According to police, a driver who had been drinking struck and killed a man in Philadelphia.
He was traveling around the intersection of 8th Street and Girard Avenue at about 2 in the afternoon, when he crashed his van into a 54-year-old man, killing him instantly, investigators said.
The victim was working in the area at the time, helping a coworker back a vehicle out into the street when he was struck, according to investigators.
Authorities arrested the driver.
