On February 15, 2008, while a pedestrian walking across a Las Vegas street at a cross walk after getting a cup of coffee during his work break, John Doe was violently struck by a negligent driver. The impact hurled him into the air and against the hood of the car before he toppled to the pavement. As a result, he suffered severe injuries to his neck and knee. This avoidable accident occurred for one reason: The driver was intoxicated. The driver was drunk and should not have been behind the wheel.
