Excerpt
Excerpt: Youth Accident Experience: On November 10, 1991, an 18-year-old swimmer celebrating a swim meet was provided fortified wine by a teammate's 21-years old girlfriend. He quickly drank 1.5 bottles and drove through a residential section of Mesa, Arizona, at over 80 miles per hour (mph) in a 30-mph zone. His car struck and killed a 22-year-old college student and seriously injured a 16-year-old girl as they were walking in a crosswalk. The driver left the scene, but turned himself in to police the next day. As a result of the elapsed time, police were unable to obtain breath, blood, or urine specimens to determine a blood alcohol! concentration (BAC). The driver was convicted of manslaughter and aggravated assault and sentenced to 10 years in prison. The 21-year-old provider of alcohol was convicted of a misdemeanor and sentenced to 6 months in jail. On May 12,1989, four teens (ages 16 and 17) in Montgomery County, Maryland, attended a high school graduation party at which kegs of beer were available. According to news reports, none of the four had been invited to the party, but all four had paid for admission. No adult continuously supervised the party and police had responded to a complaint about the party. One of the four was the designated driver who was to be alcohol-free. According to police, after leaving the party, the designated driver was speeding on 3 wet country road, lost control of the vehicle, and hit an on-coming car. Two passengers were killed while the driver and another passenger were seriously injured. The designated driver had a 0.05 percent BAC. Media reports stated that the drivers BAC was below the 0.08 percent level for a driving under the influence of alcohol violation, however, effective January 1 , 1989, Maryland law prohibited drivers under the age of 21 from driving with a BAC of 0.02 percent or more.
