Paralyzed Texas Girl Writes Drunk Driver a Letter

By The Law Office of WT Johnson on November 22, 2012

Recently Xitclalli Vasquez of Fort Worth wrote a letter to the drunk driver who changed her life forever, leaving her paralyzed from the chest down. The nine-year-old hopes her letter will change him forever too.

The accident occurred on July 9, 2011, days before she celebrated her eighth birthday. She had just spent the day at North East Mall in Hurst getting a haircut and a manicure with her family.

On their way home, Jeremy Solis slammed into their car at the corner of 28th Street and Sylvania Avenue in Fort Worth. Police said Solis was driving drunk — his blood alcohol level was nearly three times the legal limit.

The letter shares Xitclalli’s heart and how the accident has changed her. She wrote,“I don’t remember the first severals days. I could not talk, so I had to use my thumb to answer Yes or No,” and “There are days that I cry cause I can’t do what I used to do.”

Xitclalli’s mom read her daughter’s letter to Solis in a Tarrant County courtroom after Solis pleaded guilty. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Xitclalli’s words made an impact on the judge, other people in the courtroom and Solis. Her family said they saw him crying and thinks he felt remorse.

Xitclalli has years of therapy ahead of her. Her dream is “to walk so I can be a doctor.”

Drunk drivers wreck havoc in the lives of many innocent victims. If you or your loved one has suffered like Xitclalli and her family have, you deserve justice. Contact the experienced drunk driver lawyers at the Law Office of W.T. Johnson today to get the compensation you are entitled to.
