Trial has been set for Larry Setzer of Horn Lake, Mississippi who has been charged with two counts of causing a death while driving a car under the influence (DUI) and causing an personal injuries and death. Car accidents by DUI can affect all of us, including our children. At the time of the car wreck Setzer was not drinking but was on a drug called Xanax. Anything that can impair motor skills and alertness including but not limited to illegal drugs, prescription drugs, alcohol, and sleep deprivation put innocent adults and children at risk on Mississippi highways and roads.
The two victims were Jacob Lannom (age 12) and Zachary Lannon (age 15). The boys’ mother and a passenger were also hurt. Criminal defense attorneys are attempting to keep evidence of Xanax in Larry Setzer’s blood out as evidence for the trial.
For a family to lose two children in one accident is truly tragic. This case and others shows the dangers of drug and alcohol when driving.
