A mother faces DUI and vehicular homicide charges after her two children were killed in a wreck on Ga. 400 in Lumpkin County late Wednesday night, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Tiffany Grubb, 24, of West Palm Beach, Fla., was driving on a suspended license at the intersection of Whelchel Road and Ga. 400 and failed to maintain her lane, the Georgia State Patrol told AJC.com Thursday afternoon in a statement. Her 1997 Toyota 4Runner overturned several times.
Grubb’s two children — 4-year-old Jah’Ziya Glover and 2-year-old De’Jean Glover — were killed in the crash.
In addition to DUI and two counts of first-degree vehicular homicide, Grubb was charged with two counts of endangering a child under 14 while DUI and one count each of reckless driving, driving while suspended and failure to maintain lane.
The crash shut down Ga. 400, which later reopened.
Kissy’s Thought Korner
Tiffany is not the first person to drink and drive with kids in the car. Which goes to show how scary the mindset. It’s indeed irresponsible to drink and drive, even when you’re in the car alone, as you risk hitting another driver.
To drink and drive with children in the car shows a strong desire to not want to be successful in life. Kids tend to motivate you to do the right thing…
The fact her license was suspended is also not surprising. A suspended license may helm as proof that a person doesn’t take care of their responsibilities.
This entire story is an avoidable crime… All Tiffany had to do was make a DECISION to not drink and drive.
We wish Tiff the best.
