With the holiday season coming please remember and learn from her! Do not DRINK & DRIVE EVER!

"Not everyone that gets hit by a drunk driver dies".

This is Jacqueline Saburido on September 19, 1999.

This is she and her Father, 1998.

This is she on Vacation in Venezuela


Birthday party as a child.


At a party with friends.


The car in which Jacqueline traveled. She was hit by another car that was driven by a 17-year old male student on his way home after
drinking a couple of hard packs with his friends. This was in December 1999.


After the accident Jacqueline has needed over 40 operations.

Jacqueline was caught in the burning car and

her body was heavily burnt during around 45 seconds.


With her Father, 2000.

Getting treatment.


Three months after accident.


Without a left eyelid Jacquie needs
eye drops to keep her vision.


Now 20 years old, he cannot forgive himself for driving drunk on that night
three years ago.

He's aware of devastating Jacqueline Saburidos life.


Not everyone who gets hit with a car dies. This picture was taken 4 years after the accident and the doctors are still working on Jacqueline, whose body was covered with 60% severe burnings.

Please send this to as many people as you can to make them aware of the consequences of drunk driving.




In our choices lies our greatest power!

Ok: 1st off this is touching. It's tragic. And I very much want to look some more into this, if there is anything else to research about it. But , as you already can tell im a strong Athiest. And all of this stuff about  "t is not right to think you are invincible, God will decide that, how, when, etc.  But if one has the power to let some actions to redirect tthemselfs to the positive of God and he shall be thankful."

From the commenter Ggems17....... It's not "Gods" desiscion if you die or not... its yours. You control your own life. And you cant convince me to believe that, you supposedly got a message or a sign, about God telling you that your time on Earth is not up, that your going to keep on living your lie, your not going to take your life.

Thats tottaly wrong.

Now: From the next commenter..DreaKevAiyana..

"Well, everyone prayed and my dad prayed that instead of Danny going through surgery and being airlifted away from his family that he deal with it, that God give him any surgery, any pain, and just take it all away from my brother.  Well, the day after the accident my dad had to have surgery for bleeding in his stomach, and my brother (who had a cracked hip, broken pelvis, shattered pubic bone, and very badly broken arm which they were going to do surgery on) didn't need ANY surgery whatsoever.  He needed help getting in and out of bed and a cast on his arm for about 2 weeks and that was it!  They are both almost back to normal now."

Thats possibly the most ridiclous thing i've ever heard in my life.He got trucked..., cracked hip, broken pelvis, shattered pubic bone, and VERY BADLY BROKEN ARM which, NEEDED SURGERY.

You can sit here and tell me that he woke up the next morning and everything was ok!......tottaly out of the question.

And with the conclusion.You cant convince me that there is a God. That we came from....dust.

Theres no possible way.

Look at evolution, it makes perfect sense.

Monkeys, look like us, have 2 ears, a mouth, 2 eyes, a nose, 2 arms, 2 legs, 4 fingers and a thumb, all they are is hairier. I honestly do want an answer for these  supposed "miracles" so please feel free to contact me, at my email Skaterdude5678@aol.com..  I am 16, I feel strongly about my opinion, if you can give me a logical explanation. There is room for changing... Look at Mel Trotter. Thanks. Brandon.

Mar. 16, 2008 at 3:50 PM This story is so crazy. But its so real and everyone needs to see this. My parents died  from drinking and driving. As for Godisnotreals comments. Seriously? Shut up. Thats your OPINION. Keep it to yourself. I could go on all day long as to why people believe God is real, but thats my opinion, and Im not gonna try and change some ignorant athiest thats not open to believing. If they wanna believe that God helped them, LET THEM, who are you to change that? Does it seriously hurt you that they believe that or something? I dont think so, so keep your ignorance to yourself.

Mar. 16, 2008 at 3:55 PM Oh and you also cant tell me that we came from one cell..... if things evolved from cells like that then shouldnt we have all kinds of earths with people and all the stuff we have? Maybe Im not all scientific or maybe I dont understand the whole concept, but hey, im not tryin to, just like your not tryin to hear theres a God. Go worship your science books.

Many people think this can NEVER happen to you!  For many years, I thought that was true, until 2003, when I became the victim of a DUI / DWI impaired driver - on my way home from military duty leave - to see my family.  Instead, they saw me - in a hospital trauma center - almost 1300 miles from my home in CA, half way between Tulsa, OK and OK City, OK.

I was one of 9 cars involved in this highway pile up - but my sports car - ended up on the bottom of the pile, with an early 1970's (all steel bodied) Jeep Wrangler sitting two inches from my head.  Keep in mind, the car I was driving was a Pontiac Sunfire - convertible.  The car was demolished.  I was trapped for six and a half hours - while the crews had to move other cars off of mine and then try to dig me out of what was left.

I had burns on my head from the jeep that was sitting on me.  I had my entire face near ripped off because the roof and windshield came down on my face.  My steering wheel impacted my stomach wall, which ruptured my spleen on my left side, my left lung, and my left kidney along with crushing the entire left side of my body - until I don't have a rib cage (even existent) on my left side.  That isn't to mention, almost every bone in my body was broken, crushed or both - and the doctors had to try to put me back together, as best they could, with much more work to be done yet and more still painful recovery.

The young lady that caused my accident in 2003, got her license at 16.  By the time she was 18, she'd already been arrested twice - first charge was a DUI / DWI conviction.  They took her license until she was 18 with the stipulation that it was to work and back.  Six months later, a reckless driving charge in Oregon while in college - her passenger - was hurt, but not severely.  They took her license permanently at that point, so she decided to drive without it.

At 20 years old, she was drag racing a borrowed car - belonging to a family member - in Oklahoma (where she lived by then) and she killed an 8 year old, little boy.  She ran him over and just kept on going.

Although I was angry for many years at this woman for what she did to me - and a part of me always will be - I have decided that this happened to me - for reasons beyond my control or understanding and it was a lesson in my life, that I had to learn the hard way (as to why) bad things happen to people.

The day of my accident, I was your typical, self centered, shallow, completely heartless witch of a person that wouldn't have given most people the time of day prior to this.  While I was in the trauma center recovering from my injuries, I learned what can happen to someone when something like this happens and I learned very quickly who my true friends, really were.  So, not only did I learn how to be a true friend from this - but also learned not to judge others the way I used to or I may end up leaving the most interesting book, sitting on the shelf!

I'm living proof that DUI drivers don't always take their victims - but instead - leave a trail of carnage!

Jun. 21, 2009 at 5:18 AM Wow this is a very sad reality. I will surely keep Jacqueline Saburido and her family in my prayers! The life she has was stolen from her but she had the strength to move on and forgive. Although this is tremendously sad its also amazing to see such love.

After reading all these posts about the terrible and horrific consequences of drunk driving, particularly among teens, we have to ask ourselves how to actually solve this problem. With the amount of alcohol advertising in the media, movies and television directed at young people today we have embraced a drinking culture. Becoming temporary alcoholics has become a right of passage for college students and we wonder why drunk driving statistics are up?

We have to target the automobile manufacturing companies. Especially right now as GM claims to be reinventing themselves. We may not be able to stomp out drunk drivers but we can make much safer cars. Make me a car that is fundamentally designed to protect me from death. Why isn't the inside of the car completely surrounded with airbags and a shell that cannot be penetrated or burned. 43,313 people died last year in the US from automobile accidents. Surly we can do better, this is a life or death situation that these corporations dont care about.
