Woman kills 2 but gets out of jail on bail

Whether you live in Iowa or anywhere around the world, drunk driving accidents can be prevented, which is why these types of accidents have such serious charges when they happen. Drivers who choose to drink and drive put their own lives at risk, but they also endanger everyone else on the road. If you've been hit by a drunk driver, you already know that your life can be changed in an instant. That's what happened to these men, whose families are enraged about the events that happened so close to the holidays.

A driver accused of driving while drunk recently took the lives of two men in Iowa. She's currently out of jail, and the families of the men have reported their anger about her release.

The accident, which happened on November 15, took place when the woman, 53, broadsided the men's vehicle. The driver of the men's car passed away at the hospital, and his friend passed on impact.

Now, the woman who caused the accident is facing two counts of vehicular homicide by reckless driving along with another two counts for vehicular homicide while intoxicated. To get out of jail, the woman posted a $250,000 surety bond. The authorities did not say if she had paid the 10 percent fee up front or if someone else paid her bail, but the families of the two men who passed are not satisfied with her release.

They have argued that the men were grandfathers and fathers; now, they're unable to spend their time with their loved ones. Both men will be buried next to each other, since they were lifelong friends, the families reported.
