The moment when your friends die in a drunk-driving crash

One of every seven Minnesota drivers has a conviction for driving under the influence of alcohol. The number who actually drive drunk, no doubt, is much higher. It’s unlikely they haven’t heard the warnings against drunk driving, but they drink and drive anyway.

Will something like this change their habits? A woman involved in a drunk driving crash that killed her two friends hopes so.

Desaleen James, 18, was the only survivor of a crash during a night of drinking in Silver Spring, Maryland. She filmed the crash and is trying to get people’s attention with it.

(Note: WUSA has since made the video, UNembeddable, which seems to betray their effort to help the young woman make a difference by publicizing it)
