ATLANTA -- A metro Atlanta widow is demanding a change. Two years after her husband was killed by a drunk driver while on the job, she wants justice.
Derryl Simmons was the passenger in a garbage truck when the driver lost control and flipped it, throwing Simmons from the cab. Even though an investigation proved the driver's blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit, his widow tells 11Alive News she has no legal recourse. She says the only way anything will change is if the city is forced to take responsibility for what happened.
After years of stonewalling, Louise Simmons says the city won't give her any information about his death, and state law prevents her from getting justice.
