Drunk Driver Kills One Duke University Student and Injures Others

Yet another innocent person was killed by a drunk driver in Florida.  This tragedy occurred when the drunk driver crossed the median on a major highway, and struck the van in which several students were riding.

This is similar to another tragic case that was handled by our office, in which three people were killed and a fourth badly injured when a drunk driver slammed into their car at a high rate of speed in Pasco County, Florida.  Please see the section of our website entitled "Newspaper Articles" to read an article that appeared in the Tampa Tribune about that case in which we obtained a $13,500,000 verdict for the surviving family members.

In this most recent tragedy, several students at Duke University were traveling home after five days of canoeing and camping on the Blackwater River in Florida when their van was hit by a pickup truck.  Rebecca Denardis, 21, a senior at Duke, was taken to a hospital in Crestview, Fla., where she was pronounced dead, the university said in a news release.

Another student, Joao Correia Marques, 21, was airlifted to a Pensacola hospital, the Northwest Florida Daily News reported.  

The driver of the truck, Martin Zachery Hale of Jemison, Ala., faces charges including DUI manslaughter and DUI serious bodily injury, the Daily News reported. The Florida Highway Patrol said Hale’s truck crossed the median of Interstate 10 and hit the Duke group’s van at about 11:45 a.m., according to the report.

I am extremely sorry to hear that a drunk driver kills one duke University student and injures others. The driver and also no one can't bring the life now who already gone from this world. I think, driver should feel the thought of others when they drive on the road with their car. By the way, I hope driver should take the responsibility what he have to do on the road during driving time. Thanks!
