6-Year-Old Is Killed By Drunk Driver, Then Dad Visits Her Grave To Reveal The Driver Was Her Mom
Rick Ellis lost his daughter, Lindsey, when she was just 6 years old. Lindsey was in a fatal car accident involving a drunk driver who liked to stay up late, drink whiskey, and have fun.
In 2014, a heartbroken Ellis stood at his daughter’s grave in tears. He proceeded to record an emotionally-charged plea to those who drive under the influence, and beg them to rethink their ways. “I’m going to show you something that is the end result of your partying on Friday nights, Saturday nights, whenever,” he says. “Want to get drunk, play around, get stupid? This is what happens…”
Ellis then turns his camera to the headstone.
Written on the headstone are two names: Christy M. Johnson Ellis and Lindsey Kay Ellis. That’s when the shocking truth is revealed.
The drunk driver who was behind the wheel when Lindsey died was Rick’s ex-partner, Christy — Lindsey’s own mother. Sadly, Christy also passed away in the crash.
This story proves just how important it is for people struggling with addiction to get the help they need.
“If you’re struggling with addiction… if you’re struggling with alcohol… I hope this can help you,” Rick says to the camera. “Don’t let your loved ones look down at you six-feet in the ground ’cause you couldn’t handle life. Pull your bootlegs up, grab a hold of life, make something of it. Make Mom and Daddy proud.”
