The mother of a Pensacola 20-year-old who was killed by a drunken driver in 2002 will speak about the dangers of drinking and driving at 8:30 p.m. today at the University of West Florida Commons Auditorium.
Renee Napier, who now lives in South Florida, is the speaker at the alcohol awareness seminar that is hosted by the Alpha Delta Pi sorority.
Napier’s daughter, Meagan Napier, a UWF student, was killed by Eric Smallridge in the 2002 collision, which also killed Meagan Napier’s friend, Lisa Jo Dickson.
Smallridge was sentenced to two consecutive 11-year sentences for DUI manslaughter, but that sentence has since reduced to serving the two sentences concurrently.
Napier has since crossed the state talking about the dangers of drinking and driving. On stage at today’s seminar, she will have the car in which her daughter and Dickson were killed. The car will show the physical damage drinking and driving causes.
