A house was burned down, a dog was killed, two power lines were toppled and an entire neighborhood lost power, all because someone decided to risk driving after having too much to drink.
That's the sad story that residents of Metairie, Louisiana, woke up to yesterday morning, as a drunk driver rear-ended a pickup truck and set off a bizarre chain of events. Both vehicles lost control after the collision, veering in separate directions and knocking into two different utility poles that were hoisting up the neighborhood's power lines.
The impact caused one of the poles to fall on the house of a Louisiana state trooper. setting his house on fire. Between the impact and the fire, the house seems to be totally destroyed. On top of that, one of the trooper's dogs was killed and the other was badly injured, further worsening an already needless tragedy for the poor man.
The driver who caused everything is currently in the hospital, recovering from his injuries and reeling from the shock of causing such calamity. The accident is currently under investigation and will be for some time, but the driver is already facing a DUI charge as well as reckless operation of a motor vehicle.
In short, he's going to be paying for this one for a long, long time. The impacted residents, especially the man whose house burned down, will certainly bring him to court and seek restitution. While that will take a long time to settle, Pre-Settlement Funding can help them begin to rebuild their lives right now.
