A young Concrete man is under investigation for a driving under the influence  and vehicler homicide after killing a pregnant 22-year-old Sedro-Wooley woman reports The Seattle Times .  Just before 10:00 pm on Highway 20 near Sedro-Wooley a car that caused the crash ran a red light, hit the victim’s car on the driver’s side and pushed it across the intersection and into a ditch.

Drunk driving is a cause of many motor vehicle accidentsThe Washington State Court System posted in its 2008 Annual Report that over 40,000 DUI charges were filed in WA State in the past year.

This represents a decrease in over 5% of the total number of DUI charges in Washington from 2007.  Over 17,000 people were convicted of DUI in Washington in 2008.  Over 18,000 people in Washington were able to resolve their DUI case by way of a reduction to a lesser offense (Reckless Driving, Negligent Driving).  And over 8,500 people in 2008 entered into a deferred prosecution as a result of their Washington DUI.

In addition to criminal charges, the family of the deceased may recover damages in a wrongful death civil suit. Washington State's wrongful death statue allows the surviving spouse, child or parent to file a lawsuit on behalf of their deceased loved one.
