While driving or riding on the highway, it can be hard to realize just how much power it takes to propel a motor vehicle at 55 miles per hour or above. But a highway crash can be a grim reminder of how dangerous it can be to act recklessly or carelessly behind the wheel.
A Mississippi man is facing trial both in criminal and civil court for his alleged actions prior to getting into a deadly car accident in 2011. The crash cost the life of a 78-year-old woman. Authorities and the victim’s son say that the Mississippi resident was drunk and driving the wrong way on a highway in another state.
