Serious Charges for Drunk Driver That Hit Young Girl

Driving while intoxicated and driving under the influence are serious offenses.  These crimes become more serious when the driver is drastically over the blood alcohol limit and/or when they cause injuries to another person.  In a recent Michigan case, a drunk driver caused injuries to not one, but two, other people.

In late August, Bonnie Babcock and her 12 year old daughter, Jordan, were walking down the side of Cook Road in Williamsburg, Michigan.  It was getting dark so the two were using a light.  At approximately 9:15pm, Jordan was struck by a car.  The vehicle was driven by Jason Scott Lemieux.  Jordan ended up in the road after being hit and Bonnie went to her daughter’s side.  Unfortunately, another car traveling down the road struck Bonnie, causing her serious injuries.

As a result of the accident Jordan was seriously injured, suffering from a fractured pelvis, damaged hip joint and a ruptured bladder and spleen.  She spent time in the hospital and in rehab.  Her mother suffered a fractured vertebra.  

Lemieux was given a Breathalyzer at the time of accident and was found to have 0.151 blood alcohol content.  This is more than double the legal limit under Michigan law.    He was arrested and charged with two counts of operating under the influence causing serious injury and one count of operating while intoxicated.  He was charged with Bonnie’s injuries in addition to her daughters because it was his alleged misconduct that led to her harm.  In early November, he pleaded guilty to one charge of operating under the influence causing serious injury and the other charges were dismissed.  He could serve as much as five years in prison for this crime.
