Earlier this year, WRAL reported a DWI charge resulting in a fatal Raleigh wreck. 16 year old Garrett Prince was driving his Jeep with 17 year old Elizabeth Molloy in the passenger seat. The police report states the Jeep was traveling at 75 mph in a 30 mph zone. Witnesses saw the Jeep run up on the curb, crash into a mailbox and hit a tree. Molloy died that night. Prince was taken to the hospital and treated for injuries. He is now facing several charges, including:
Driving While Intoxicated is a dangerous and expensive way to pass time. It costs lives. Getting charged with a DWI is taken very seriously in North Carolina. You can get a DWI if you drive with a blood alcohol concentration (B.A.C.) at 0.08% or higher. However, because Prince is under 21, his minimum B.A.C. is 0%. North Carolina is a “zero tolerance” State.
