We all blame the driver in a DUI crash that injures or kills people or damages other’s property. But sometimes the problem isn’t just one person.

It’s her fault, right?
Well, the story is so much more complicated than that.
No one dreams of growing up and becoming an alcoholic and killing people in a drunken or impaired car crash.
