I hate drunk drivers. Why are they allowed to out jail. Pathetic.
There was dense fog in the area at the time, perhaps couldn’t see? Hoping all involved a safe recovery
Wrong Way says
Alcohol or drugs…
What a fu*king idiot. Was he drunk at 9:30 AM?
COULD HAVE BEEN A SUICIDE…
OR MAYBE THE DRIVER WANTED TO MURDER THE PASSENGER TOO…
OR MAYBE THEY WERE BOTH FRYING ON METH, WHO KNOWS…
THE SHAME IS THAT THEY HURT INNOCENT PEOPLE…
IT’S BECOMING LESS SAFE EVERYWHERE…
