The 20-year-old defendant was driving his new Ford F-150 truck while drunk at 3:45am. Traveling at 70 miles per hour in a 45 mile per hour zone, the defendant slammed into the side of the plaintiff’s van when she pulled away from a stop sign. The impact was so powerful that the van flipped over several times and threw the plaintiff out of her vehicle. As a result of the impact, the plaintiff’s foot was trapped beneath the seat in front of her, causing a degloving injury when she was thrown from her vehicle.
