A cautionary tale for the “it’ll never happen to me” party crowd: she survived the crash, only to face a good chance of seeing vehicular homicide charges.
It was not exactly the “St. Patrick’s Day to remember” Abby Michaels was expecting when she left for the party.
She crossed over the median in the area of the 49-mile marker in the paved turn-around and turned into oncoming traffic around 8 p.m. Sunday, according to Moraine police.
Her Kia Forte collided with a Toyota Camry carrying Mason residents Timmy Thompson, 51, Karen Thompson, 50, and their daughter, Tessa Thompson, 10, in the southbound lanes. Timmy and Tessa Thompson were pronounced dead at the scene by the Montgomery County Coroner’s Office, and Karen Thompson died at a local hospital.
…Police had said they suspected alcohol may have been a factor in the crash. The crash report states beer came from Michaels’ mouth as medics attempted to make her breathe. She was wearing a St. Patrick’s Day shirt, multiple green shamrock necklaces and a temporary tattoo of a beer mug on her right cheek, according to the report. An officer found a large cup with a Fireball whiskey logo in her purse.
Relatives believe the Thompsons were returning from visiting Karen Thompson’s family in northern Ohio.
Karen Thompson worked as multiple disabilities teacher at Taft Elementary in Cincinnati Public School District since 1994, officials said.
Abby was only twenty-one years old and four lives are over — three she snuffed out by driving drunk — and her own.
It’s easy to believe ‘it will never happen to me’ when you’re 21 years old, thinking you’re 10 feet tall and bulletproof. But don’t be stupid.
If you’re planning to go out and get loaded, at least find a safe way home… for everyone’s sake.
ClashDaily.com’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:
In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.
