[Sacramento, CA] – Abigail Prado and One Other Die in Vehicle Crash on Business Rt. 80 

Abigail Prado and Driver Ejected and Killed in Vehicle Accident on Business Route 80

December 28, 2020 – Abigail Prado, age 29, lost her life on Christmas morning around 6 A.M. Moreover, the woman from Rio Linda, as well as one other were killed in a vehicle accident that occurred on Business 80. 
 
Subsequently, the deadly crash happened just north of Fulton Avenue. 
 
Initially, authorities said the two were driving west on Business 80. Then, for some unknown reason, they drove off the roadway and rolled into the shoulder. 

Afterward, the driver and Ms. Prado, the passenger was thrown from their vehicle. 
 
Sadly, emergency responders pronounced both dead upon arrival. 
 
Furthermore, rescue workers stayed to continue to investigate the scene. Sadly, drugs and alcohol are factors in the tragic accident. 

Indeed, practice safe driving habits on the roadways. Especially, when roads are empty. You never know, where police are hiding.  
   

Do Not Drink and Drive

It is never a promising idea to drink and drive. As a result, you could end up in jail. Furthermore, it can ruin your life in many other ways as well. For instance, you could wind up dead.   

Risking your life is not even the worst thing either. As a result, you risk others as well. Other examples include large fines, a criminal record and prison time.  

Furthermore, these things will follow you for the rest of your life.  

Drinking and driving is illegal. Also, it is up there with one of the most dangerous things that you can do.  

Alcohol prevents your ability to think clearly. As a result, your ability to pay attention and make safe driving choices is negatively affected.   

For some, the law is not enough deterrent. Still, a clear understanding of what can happen when you drink, and drive might be enough to stop this reckless behavior.  

Statistics  

Statistically, 112 million adults were cited for drinking and driving in 2010. Moreover, this is according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.   

In 2009 alone, 11,000 people (about the seating capacity of Cameron basketball stadium at Duke University) died in car crashes involving at least one person whose blood-alcohol limit was above 0.08%.   

Also, according to the CDC. Furthermore, The Mothers Against Drunk Driving website reports that 27 people die every day due to drinking and driving.   

Similarly, four out of every five drunk drivers are men. Not to mention, 32% of all drunk driving incidents involve a male between the ages of 21 and 34.  

Car Accidents  

Primarily, car accidents pose the highest danger when it comes to drinking and driving. Also, drinking too much alcohol impairs your ability to use your common sense and think long-term.   

DrinkingAndDriving.org says that having too much to drink also slows your reaction time. Furthermore, that makes it more difficult for your brain to process information.   

With all these factors, it makes for one dangerous and distracted driver. Also, when you do not pay attention to other vehicles around you, you are more likely to get into a car crash.  

Moreover, when your response times are slower due to alcohol, you might not hit the brakes soon enough. As a result, you can cause serious accidents.  

Intoxication Dangers to Others  

When you get behind the wheel after drinking alcohol, your life is not the only one at risk. Also, you are putting the safety of everyone else on the road in jeopardy too.   

Many drunken drivers get into single-car crashes and seriously hurt or kill themselves. Furthermore, in 22.3% of all car accidents causing driver death, the driver had a blood alcohol content of 0.08 or more.  

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in many cases, drunk drivers often collide with other motorists. As a result, seriously injuring or killing them.  

According to the “Journal of Political Economy,” 53.2% of all fatal car accidents involve one sober driver, and one drunk driver.  

How Much Alcohol Is Too Much?  

By law, a blood alcohol level of 0.08% or higher is considered driving while impaired. For the average person, only drinking four beers is enough to reach a blood alcohol level of 0.08%, according to the CDC.  

Some people, such as small women, can be legally drunk after drinking only two or three beers.   

However, after five beers, an average sized person will have a blood alcohol concentration of 0.10%.    

Furthermore, after seven beers, that number rises to 0.15%.   

When you are out with friends or family, always choose someone to be the assigned driver. Additionally, you could plan to call a cab rather than driving home yourself.  

Never get into the car with somebody who has been drinking either. Moreover, if you suspect that someone is driving drunk while you are out on the road, call the police.  

Examine the road 1/2 mile to a full mile ahead to find or recognize potential risks in time.   

Sadly, our bodies were not built to travel at 50mph. We were designed for running speeds of less than 10mph. Thus, you need to learn to deliberately break that instinct and concentrate further ahead.  

How Dangerous Is Drinking and Driving?  

According to a study held in 2014, an adult driver with a blood alcohol level (BAL) of 0.08 is 7x more likely to be involved in a fatal motor vehicle accident than a sober driver.   

On average, young adult drivers with a 0.08 BAL are 12x more likely to be in a fatal car accident than those who have not had alcohol.  

The more you drink, the more likely you are to have a deadly crash.   

These are the cold, hard facts.  

Do You Know What Laws Your State Has?  

Alcohol Will Increase Your Risk of a Crashing  

Mathematically, a 160-pound individual who drinks two 12-ounce beers within an hour would have a BAL of 0.04.   

Moreover, this is well below the legal limits of driving under the influence.   

However, this will also increase your BAL of 1.4x more likely to have an accident than someone who is sober.  

Additionally, setting the “drunk driving” criteria at 0.08 sends a mixed message.  

As a result, people might think that it is ok to drive if you are under that BAL.  

That message needs to change!    

Do NOT drink and drive under any circumstances.
