Franklin's first DUI checkpoint of 2012 will be in honor of a Mid-State family whose lives were dramatically affected by an impaired driver more than 30-years ago.
In 1971, Williamson County resident Millie Webb was driving home when a drunk driver struck her vehicle, killing her four-year-old daughter and 19-month-old nephew in a fiery crash.
At the time of the accident, Webb was seven months pregnant and sustained burns over 75% of her body and a broken neck. Webb's infant was born premature and legally blind.
“In a matter of seconds, our lives were changed forever,” Webb said.
The first checkpoint of the year will be conducted on Saturday on Murfreesboro Road, near Clovercroft, which is less than a half mile from the location of the Webb's accident.
The checkpoint is scheduled to begin at 9:45 p.m.
