There will be extra law enforcement looking for impaired drivers on the state’s road from now through the end of the year. At a press conference, Amanda Albrecht recounted how her family’s life has changed since Thanksgiving 2006 when her sister Breana was killed after getting behind the wheel while under the influence…

“Breana made one mistake that cost her her life a couple of months ago, for the first time in 15 years, I was mad at her for the ongoing pain my family goes through.”

Breana was weeks shy of her 20th birthday when she was killed in a drunk driving crash near Lake Elmo. Breana was going around 100 mph. She was intoxicated, not wearing her seat belt and texting at the time of the crash.

“Drinking and driving is not just a fine, it’s not just a slap on the wrist, it can be so much more than that, my sister wasn’t the only one who paid the ultimate price, we did, too, we have to live with her choices for the rest of our lives, please don’t do this to your friends and family.”
