Now, we have all done stupid things and, thank god, we are still alive, but here is a reminder of what drinking and driving does to the innocent…
This is Jacqueline Saburido on September 19, 1999.
This is her and her Father, 1998.
This is her on Vacation in Venezuela.
Jacqueline’s birthday party as a child.
At a party with friends.
In December 1999, the car in which Jacqueline was riding was hit by another car that was driven by a 17-year old male student on his way home after drinking a couple of hard packs with his friends. WHat do you think happened?
After the accident Jacqueline has needed over 40 operations.
Jacqueline was caught in the burning car and her body was burned for a little under 1 minute.
With her father in 2000.
Jacqueline receiving treatment for her severely burned face.
Three months after accident.
Without a left eyelid Jacquie needs eye drops to keep her vision.
Now 20 year old, the driver of the car that hit Jacqueline cannot forgive himself for driving drunk on that night three years ago. He’s aware of devastating Jacqueline Saburidos life.
Not everyone who gets hit by a drunk driver dies. This picture was taken 4 years after the accident and the doctors are still working on Jacqueline, whose body is 60% covered with severe burns.
It’s pretty ironic that the drunk driver came out of this accident with hardly a scratch, but he ruined this girls life…
