Alcohol May Be The Cause Of Fatal Car Crash

Despite the successful decline in nationwide drunk driving incidents, every single day, across the United States, more than 30 people will die in alcohol related vehicle accidents.  Countless others will be seriously injured due to the reckless endangerment caused by people choosing to drink and drive.

Chesterfield Patch reported on March 19, 2012 that police are waiting for toxicology tests to be processed in the automobile accident that killed 18 year old Clayton Pfeiffer, a Missouri Baptist University freshman.  The fatal crash occurred at approximately 11:00 a.m. on February 22, 2012 when the driver of a 2012 SUV Infiniti sport utility vehicle crossed over the center line and hit Mr. Pfeiffer’s Honda Accord head on, as well as a Dodge pickup truck.  The driver of the pickup truck did not sustain any injuries in the accident.

Reports are that any charges that could be filed in the Chesterfield case may take months to process as the investigation requires additional time for waiting for the warrant application with the St. Louis County’s prosecuting attorney’s office.  You may read the article here.
