Intoxicated Driver Injures Cabbie
Posted on Jul 29, 2011 in DUI/DWI, Local Issues
Early Sunday morning 21-year-old Thomas Eagan’s SUV struck a cab at the corner of Freret and Audubon before barreling through the doors of the United Methodist Campus Center on Tulane’s campus.
Those involved in the accident, Eagan, the cab’s driver and three passengers, were hospitalized on Sunday. With the exception of the taxi driver, everyone has been released or is in stable condition. Our prayers are with the cab driver who remains in intensive care.
Eagan has been charged with driving while intoxicated and more serious charges may be filed depending on the health of the other driver. This is a reminder that the decision to drive drunk can have life altering consequences.
