Excerpt: The driver was convicted of DWI or Driving While Intoxicated in Royal Oak, Michigan. He pleaded no contest in August 2019, served two days in jail and was given probation and had to pay a fine.
Matt Wickey was on Woodward Avenue near West 11 Mile when his life changed forever.
“It was actually my birthday. I was driving home from work," he said.
But instead of going out to celebrate, which he and his wife Lesa had planned, he spent the night in the hospital.
The crash was all caught on dashcam video. A driver with a blood alcohol level of nearly three times the legal limit, according to a report from Royal Oak Police Department, plowed into parked cars stopped at a light on Woodward.
The driver was convicted of DWI.
