Sad but a reality check

Drink liquid courage and decide to drive???? Not a good choice.

It looks like a Mazda3 from the rims but I'm not positive. A sad story regardless.

Re: Sad but a reality check

yes that was definitely a mazda3, looks like a black hatch. Truly a sad story, whats worse is if I heard right he has had DUIs in the past? And drinking since he was 15? Sounds like his parents were a little irresponsible in letting this continue to happen instead of keeping him home or having a tighter leash on where he was going and the friends he was with.

Regardless I hope he learns a valuable lesson in this and that he is forever in the debt of the families he hurt due to the loss of their child, and I hope he always takes care of his injured friend.

Please everyone, with the holiday season here, drive safe dont drink and drive! Think of those around you if you dont care to think about yourself.

Re: Sad but a reality check

Estimated .14 BAC for the driver at the time of the accident
79 in a 45 zone, lost control in a curve at like 2am
both the kid that got killed and the one who is seriously injured were not wearing seat belts


it's a sad story that could have been easily have been prevented

Re: Sad but a reality check

Reminds me of a local story. A local high school football player was killed a few weeks because his friend's older brother was drinking and driving. The kid was in the back of the pickup and the driver drove the car off the road while drunk and flipped it. Driver is facing vehicular manslaughter and other charges. Now I agree he was negligent in drinking and driving, the high school kid was also negligent in RIDING IN THE BACK OF A FOOKING PICKUP TRUCK!

I see kids do that all the time and it makes me so damn mad. In someways I think it is stupider then drinking and driving. If you get in to any kind of accident your probably dead in the bed of a pickup, or at the very least your going flying and hopefully you land on something not to hard.

Drinking and driving = stupid
Riding in the bed of a pickup = more stupid
-Matt

PS I don't mean riding in the bed on a job site where your probably not traveling on actual roads, probably only going a few hundred yards and probably not driving more then 20-30mph.
