Man Killed in DUI Accident Over the Weekend Identified
He was just 32-years-old when a suspected drunk driver slammed into the back of his vehicle and he was killed. Now we know a little more about the man who was taken so suddenly.
Herbie Douglas Moran was ejected from his vehicle when 23-year-old Courtni Verity rear-ended him at a high rate of speed near Ten Mile and Ustick. His family says he was headed to a friends house to play video games.
According to the Meridian Police Department, alcohol is believed to have played a factor in the crash.
In a statement released by Herbie's family, they said in part
He was loved by anyone who met him. Herbie was the type of person who would do anything for anyone. He loved his family and friends. Herbie loved to cook and play video games on his spare time. He had several degrees from ITT Tech, and loved computers. You could always find him fixing or building computers for not only himself, but for his friends and family. He could walk into a room and you'd instantly get a smile. Our family is devestated at this great loss. Nobody could ever prepare or even imagine this happening to their family.
