Something similar happened years ago and Dear Abby jumped on it to spur the anti-Drinking and Driving movement in her readers.

Guy was backing out of his garage the next morning after a night of binge drinking, and his wife came running out to give him his lunch. She collapsed and hurled all over the front lawn. So he got out to see what she was acting hysterical about.

There was a dead ten year old kid embedded in the grill and wrapped around the bumper. They'd been out for a bike ride and he ran them down and he didn't even notice.

He probably got off though, as that was back in the days when being drunk was actually an excuse. "He didn't know what he was doing when he ran over that kid, he was drunk!" Blah.
