Karen Mertes’ Story of Triumph Shared by MADD

Every day in America, another 29 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes. That’s one person every 50 minutes. Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) picked up Karen Mertes’ story of triumph late last year and shared it with the world.

Here is an excerpt from the MADD write-up on Karen Mertes:
“In every situation we have a choice, to stay a victim or become victorious despite all odds. I chose to be better, not bitter.” The driver that made the choice to drink and drive and injured Karen, continued to make choices that harmed him. Before the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) results came back, he fled the state. The news was heart breaking. As she continued to face new challenges head-on and find ways to embrace her TBI, the person that caused so much pain and suffering chose to flee his problems and not be accountable for his actions.”
