In Jacksonville, Florida, Sasha Nicole Pringle was recently sentenced to a 30 year prison sentence for a crash that took place on the Buckman Bridge. The accident caused a vehicle driven by Luma Kajy to plunge into the St. John’s River in February 2010. The wife and mother of two children died as a result of the careless and reckless driving of Pringle while Pringle was under the influence of drugs. The Judge commented that the evidence against Pringle was overwhelming. You can read more about the trial and testimony at Woman Sentenced to 30 Year Prison Term for Fatal Buckman Bridge Crash.
Driving under the influence of drugs and / or alcohol can and does have deadly consequences. Before a person gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, the person should think about the dangers that are out there for others who may be on or near the roadway. Of course, drugs and alcohol do impair good judgment but this does not excuse in any way the conduct or consequences caused by driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
