6-Year-Old Tragically Killed By Drunk Driver - Father Reveals Her Mother Was The Driver

Arkansas Father Rick Ellis never thought he would have to worry about his daughter’s welfare since the 6-year-old was with her mother. However, that changed one day when her mother Christy decided to drive while she was drunk.

“Want to get drunk, play around, get stupid?” Ellis asks in a recording. “This is what happens…”

He then pans his camera to the tombstone for his daughter Lindsay and her mother Christy. According to Little Things, Lindsay began drinking heavily after she had been unemployed for about three months. She decided to take a trip with her new boyfriend to Gulfshores, Alabama and brought her daughter. She ended up getting into an argument with her boyfriend while the two were drinking and decided to leave with her daughter.

Christy was impaired and ended up driving her car into a guardrail, flipping the car over and killing her and her daughter instantly. Ellis says he asked God what he should do while he was at the tomb and God told him to tell the world how he feels. That’s when he recorded the video that now went viral.

“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.”
