Grandparents Killed By Drunk Driver

Grandparents Killed By Drunk Driver

Fox News reported that two grandparents, Dennis and Judith Schulte, were hit and killed by a drunk driver. The Schulte’s were retired teachers, who had recently moved to Seattle from Indiana to be closer to their newborn grandson. It was determined that they were killed on Monday morning, when they were crossing the street near their apartment during a walk with their 10-day-old grandson and the boy’s mother. It was noted that the couple was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. In addition, the newborn- Elias- and his mother- Karina Ulriksen-Schulte- were listed in critical condition.

The drunk driver, Mark Mullan, was being held on $2.5 million bail, on investigation of vehicular homicide and vehicular assault. According to police reports, legal officers were able to detect a strong alcohol odor on Mullan’s breath. They also stated that Mullan performed poorly on several of the administered field sobriety tests. A preliminary test showed a breath alcohol level of 0.22, nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08, the officer said. Mullan told authorities that he did not see the family crossing the street, because the sun was hitting his eyes. However, court records proved that Mullan has a long history of driving violations and several arrests for driving under the influence.
