Drunk driving victim dies after five years in near-vegetative state

Eight-year-old Dallas resident Abdallah Khader, who was crushed in a vehicular accident in 2009 by repeat drunk driving offender Stewart Richardson, died on January 11 after spending years in a near-vegetative state, WFAA-TV reported.

The car crash in Arlington almost six years ago made Khader nearly brain dead. Khader had been strapped into his car seat, just two years old at the time, when Richardson crashed into their family vehicle. Richardson’s blood alcohol content was three times the legal limit.

Richardson, who has since then been detained in a Tarrant County jail, has yet to undergo trial due to delays instigated in an effort to enhance his punishment by including driving while impaired charges in other states.
