Two survivors from a Decatur auto accident deal with the loss of loved ones and a slow recovery from spinal cord injuries. The two women were involved in a drunk driving accident involving two cars and a motorcycle. According to the Decatur Herald & Review, the suspected drunk driver and the survivors’ husband and friend, were both killed in the accident.
Both women also suffered severe head trauma along with Decatur spinal cord injuries as a result of the Illinois car accident. The wife of the possible drunk driving victim who died in the accident, is in a neck brace to heal her spinal fractures while the victim’s friend and passenger in the vehicle remains in a local hospital due to crushed and broken vertebrae that caused the Illinois spinal cord injury.
Other victims involved in the car accident also suffered from serious injuries, however, the two women were the only ones who suffered spinal cord injuries.
Illinois State Police are awaiting toxicology reports to determine if alcohol was a factor in the case.
