PA Drug-Induced Car Crash Kills 6
Have you ever used drugs dangerously? Do you ever take drugs around the time that you're driving? Do you ever find yourself coming to, and finding yourself doing something that you wouldn't normally do while sober? Drug addiction is a disease that affects millions of Americans, and it's one that causes them to do things that they normally wouldn't, including dangerous things that can put their lives or others' lives in jeopardy. And sometimes the results are tragic. In a recent news story from Pennsylvania, a PA woman has been put in jail, facing charges that she caused a car accident that killed 6 people because she was high on drugs.
The 37-year-old woman had a prescription for clonazepam, which is a drug used to treat epilepsy and panic disorder. But the level in her bloodstream was "several times greater" than her prescribed dose, according to PA sate police. During Labor Day weekend, she lost control of the vehicle she was driving and crashed head-on into another vehicle. The impact not only killed four people in the other vehicle, but also the woman's own young daughter and nephew. The woman herself was badly injured, as well as her 10-year-old son, who was also in the car at the time.
Have you ever misused prescription drugs? Have you taken painkillers like Vicodin, OxyContin, or Percocet? Even official drugs that come from a doctor can have disastrous consequences when they're not taken under strict doctor's orders. And many of them are highly addictive.
