Christmas Eve Tragedy leads to Aggravated DUI charges

smithsI have waited on commenting about the Christmas Eve crash that took the life of eight year old Lauren Jessica Smith until the results of the toxicology reports were released.

According to the Chicago Tribune, Lauren’s father, Jeffery Smith, had a BAC of 0.13 and also had cannabis in his blood system.  Jeffery reportedly has severe injuries as a result of the crash.

Jeffery Smith’s family has spoken to the media about his love for his daughter.  I am sure that he thought he was okay to drive when he got behind the wheel.  He never intended for this to happen.  But it did.
