A 20-year-old man pleaded guilty in mid June to charges resulting from a drunk driving accident. The incident led to the wrongful death of two of the driver's friends, both 19 years old, who were passengers in the car he was driving. The driver and four others were returning from a party when the car swerved off the road. The car was traveling approximately 100 miles per hour on a road in Montgomery County. The two deceased men and the driver graduated from the same high school in 2010.
The three surviving occupants, including the driver, suffered minor injuries and were transported to Abington Memorial Hospital after authorities arrived on the scene. The driver's blood-alcohol content (BAC) was reported at .117 percent, which is well above the state's legal limit of 0.08 percent. The group had been together at a party, where the underage driver presumably consumed the alcohol resulting in his elevated BAC.
