Here is video from CBS News' "60 Minutes" last night where they took a hard look at the need for much harsher penalties against DWI offenses. It focuses on a family who were hit head-on by a drunk-driver, with their 7 year-old daughter killed.
The report shows dramatic video of a dash-cam inside the limousine the family was in. You can see the drunk driver's vehicle coming right at the limo and then the crash takes place.
The report then deals with the prosecutor in the case seeking a charge of "murder by depraved indifference" against the young man who had driven drunk despite being told by friends not to drive.
