Drunk Driving Crash That Killed Five Family Members Sparks Progressive Legislation in New Mexico

The tragic 2006 drunk driving crash that killed five members of a New Mexico family led to the state’s 2007 passage of a model law, which MADD hopes other states will consider.

When Paul Gonzales (36), his wife Renee (38) and their daughters Jacqueline (11), Selena (10) and Alisha Garcia (17) were all killed in the horrific November 11 crash, only 15-year-old daughter Arissa Garcia survived. At the time of the crash, the drunk offender had a blood alcohol content (BAC) level of 0.32 percent, four times the legal limit in New Mexico.
