A drunk driver causes a fatal crash. And the ripple effect begins.

Beyond the obvious impact to the driver and the victim, ripples affect first responders, emergency medical staff, and the people who know and love everyone we just mentioned. Ripples destroy families, terminate friendships, end careers, ruin holidays, and negatively impact hundreds of lives in countless other ways. Assembled here are powerful stories about how the ripples caused by a drunk driver continue to affect people, even years afterward.
