Earlier this month, a DC Superior Court judge sentenced a young mother to three years and four months in prison in connection with the fatal Adams Morgan auto accident last fall that killed one person. She will also have to complete 500 hours of community service. The woman had left an all-you-can-drink happy hour when she drove her car into a group of graduate students in Adams Morgan at 18th Street and Florida.
One of the students died six days after the accident when doctors removed her from life support. According to the driver’s personal injury lawyer, her last drink at the bar was a Green Zombie, which contains 190 proof grain alcohol. Her blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit at the time of the accident. Her attorney said his client originally had a designated driver but she left the bar.
The victim attended Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. Her family filed a $20 million lawsuit against the driver, her mother and the bar that served her drinks.
