Thank you both. This is my first attempt at a photographic essay. I hope it makes a impact on people, in regards to drinking and driving. We had a drunk driver wreck right next to our house and die on the road just a few weeks back. It was very saddening.

Very good topic for a photo essay. These photos really tell a story. I have work in insurance claims for over 20 years and have seen this time and time again. Very sad. Great photo.
