Tony Milligan, Drunk Driver Who Killed Toddler, Has History of Violence
Posted On behalf of Simien & Simien on Jul 09, 2014 in Automotive
On June 27, Tony Milligan was out on bail when he lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a home. The accident killed a two-year-old and left both parents injured.
Millgan was originally arrested on June 12 when he punched a man for no apparent reason, the two did not know one another. Two weeks later, Milligan lost control of his truck while fleeing a hit-and-run accident and crashed into the Strickland family home.
It is believed that Miligan was driving while intoxicated when he crashed into the family’s home, but toxicology results are still pending. Milligan sustained minor injuries during the crash, which led to a time elapse between when the doctor finished treating him and when a breath-alcohol test could be administered.
He was immediately charged with vehicular homicide and vehicular negligent injury for the injuries inflicted upon the toddler’s parents.
Brittany Strickland, the child’s mother, is in constant pain after suffering four broken ribs and a fractured vertebrae. The family’s home has been rendered unlivable after it was pushed 18 inches from its foundation during the crash.
