According to recent news reports from Stone County Mississippi 62-year-old Robert Lee Howze of Wiggins died three days after an April 10th accident in which he was the passenger in a car driven by a suspected drunk driver. 44-year-old Mark Anthony Evans of Wiggins was the driver of a car that struck Matthew Bigelows car head-on. Bigelow a firefighter in Biloxi has since been released from the hospital. Evans suffered paralysis from the neck down as a result of the accident but local authorities have asserted that he has recovered to the extent that he can be held at the Stone County Correctional Facility for the charges of DUI causing death and DUI causing serious bodily injury that were levied against him for the wreck. Evans has been twice convicted before for DUI in both 1997 and 2002. According to authorities Evans blood alcohol level after the accident was .384 approximately five times the legal limit.

In the aftermath of an alleged drunk driving accident a number of parties may be investigated in order to determine who ultimately bears responsibility for the consequences of the wreck. For instance a suspected drunk driver can be held civilly liable for their reckless behavior even if they may also be facing criminal charges. Furthermore Mississippi dram shop law may also hold a negligent bar or restaurant partially liable for such an accident if a driver was over-served alcohol at an alcohol-serving establishment prior to causing injury or loss of life due to a suspected drunk driving accident. However proving that such a chain of events may have led up to a fatal auto accident often requires the work of a third party investigation. Such an investigation can work to ensure that all liable parties are discovered and held accountable should their detrimental actions have contributed to this fatal accident.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

I appreciate how you've commentated on this tragedy--informative, with questions, but not hurtful. I live within 30 mins of this crash site, and I am appalled at the entire situation :(. I can't even begin to understand what could have happened to make this come to fruition, but I will be keeping up with it so I can learn what investigations bring to light about how something awful like this could happen. Rest in peace, Thomas, Carolyn and Carolyn...

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
