Xitclalli Vasquez is in a wheelchair, paralyzed from the chest down, because a drunk driver crashed into a car Vasquez was in. Over a year after the accident that changed her life, Xitclalli wrote a letter to the driver, hoping she could change his life with her words. WFAA.com reported a story about Xitclalli’s tragic tale. Nine-year-old Xitclalli said she wants to know the man did that day and if he remembers how everything happened. The day she is talking about is July 9, 2011. Xitclalli was on her way home from the North East Mall in Hurst with her aunt, sister and nephew when the crash happened. A tragic ending for a day filled with fun. Jeremy Solis, who was driving drunk, slammed into the car Xitclalli was in at a street corner in Fort Worth. According to police, Solis had a blood-alcohol level of nearly three times the legal limit, so there is no question that he was drunk. Xitclalli’s mother read her daughter’s letter to Solis in a Tarrant County courtroom after Solis pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. Following the sentence, the young girl’s words seemed to have an impact on Solis and the people in the courtroom. “I did see him cry several times,” said Mrs. Vasquez.
