In Tampa this week, a drunk driver is accused of causing five drunk driving crashes within 30 minutes — killing two women in a spree of crashes that only stopped after he flipped his gold Chevy Yukon.
National and state statistics claim as many as one in three road fatalities involve alcohol.
The suspect was being held in jail without bond after being charged with two counts of DUI manslaughter, one count of vehicular homicide and one count of vehicular homicide leaving the scene.
Police claim the driver rear ended a semi in the middle of the afternoon on Monday and then got into four other crashes a few miles away — plowing into two cars that left two women dead.
