Luke started his day, like every day that summer, with his alarm going off at 8:30am. After eating breakfast, he spent time with his mother, which included a walk around the neighborhood. Later that day, he did work around the house and practiced disc golf. He was looking forward to his baseball game that evening. (Luke’s two favorite sports were ice hockey and baseball.)
Just being on the field was more than enough for Luke, but on this particular day his team won their game. A teammate said Luke was extra happy that day about his hit resulting in 2 RBIs.
After the post-game talk, packing up his gear, and doing the normal field cleanup, Luke got into his car to head home to his standard chocolate milk and a snack.
On his way home, following a route that he had taken many times, an intoxicated driver ran a red light at over 80 mph and struck Luke’s car.
