More info, please? Was the drunk driver sent to the hospital or the other driver? What happened to the 2 non-drunk drivers? Are they both OK? Please clarify who had the car with the back seats not in the car?
Thank you!

I work with the delivery driver. He had bruises, cuts and soreness, but, didn’t miss any significant time away from work.

The seats are from the drunken driver’s vehicle.
