DUI Accidents in Texas

UPDATE: El Paso, TX – Ruriko Denison Killed In DUI Accident On Junction AveSpeeding is the number one cause of vehicle collisions in Texas.

They also lose control of their limbs, which makes them lose control of their vehicles.  Under these circumstances, they’re more likely to cause major accidents that could potentially take their life and the lives of others.
