Drunk Driving Hits Home in Fairfield

Drunk driving hit home this weekend in Fairfield.  Chills went up my spine Saturday morning when I learned a Fairfield home on Hollywood Avenue (the same Fairfield home my cousins were interested in back in March of 2008) was struck by a vehicle which hit the home's gas meter and ignited a fire that caused extensive damage to the home.  FORTUNATELY, the three occupants of the home nor the driver of the vehicle were injured during this horrible accident.   

 

Fairfield Fire DepartmentIt took approximately 1½ hours for The Fairfield Fire Department, along with firefighters from both West Caldwell and North Caldwell to extinguish the flames.   From what I understand the driver of the vehicle was charged with DWI and arrested by the Fairfield Police Department. 

 

This tragedy really hit home when I thought that it could very well have been my cousins being startled at 3:00 a.m. by a crash through their house and blazing flames.  Luckily for them, they had chosen another Fairfield home but in reality, it could have happened and can happen not only to them but to any one of us - don't think for one second that it can't happen to you!  Together, as communities (not just Fairfield but ALL communities) need to protect ourselves, our children, our residents, our family members and friends against drunk drivers. 

PLEASE DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!

I am so sorry to hear about this. It is a shame that people continue to risk other people's lives like this. GET A DESIGNATED DRIVER!

You just never know, do you? And now we have the issue of texting drivers being more impaired than drunk drivers...

This is horrible.  Some people just won't learn, until they've taken a life ... and that life, could be their own.

I'm grateful that no one in the home was hurt by the drunk drive.  Maybe someone will think twice before drinking and driving because of this post.  Thanks.
