Late last night there was a 5 car crash down in Santa Maria, California. Two were flown to a hospital with major injuries. A DUI driver, who caused the crash, sustained only minor injuries. It was reported this morning that one of the two flown to the hospital has died.

I personally knew the one who died, as we talked to the same people. Although we weren't close or even really good friends, she was always really nice and funny. She'll definitely be missed.

Michael Hastings also just died in a car crash. He's the reporter whose Rolling Stone piece got Stanley McChrystal fired. That sucks.

When will people learn that you CANNOT do drugs or drink and then drive? Frakking morons. There should be zero tolerance for this kind of s#it -- if you're caught DUI, you cannot drive ever again.
If you want to waste your life, i don't give a damn. But at least don't mess with other people's lives, ffs.


TS, my condolences for your acquaintance. May she rest in peace.

yes absolutely zero tolerance is the best policy for everything, or at least one thing ever.

My condolences to the people who lost their lives because of this stupid shit. On a somewhat related note, my best friend whom I haven't seen in a while flipped and totaled his car while driving drunk. I heard this from friends and luckily he didn't hit or kill anyone, but he got off easy because he called a tow company and they picked up the car before anyone found out (we're good friends with the owner). This shit sucks and I probably won't be talking to/hanging out with him for a while.

I say give them life in prison. If they're okay with ending someone else's life, why should they be able to live their own?

I think life imprisonment for being caught DUI but without actually having an accident is too extreme.
Yes, they can potentially end someone's life for doing it, but most of the time i believe people do it because they're stupid, not with an intent to kill.
So, for being caught DUI, i think a permanent ban on driving is enough.

If you cause an accident while DUI, the damage is done and then i think life imprisonment is adequate (for cases like this i think even life penalty is acceptable, but this is a personal conviction and i don't want to start that debate).
But i also have the same thing to say about reckless driving even if sober, not being high and/or drunk at all.

Motor vehicles (cars, bikes, etc.) are extremely dangerous, and accidents are always bound to happen.
But too many lives are ended and/or deeply affected in a permanent way because many people are appallingly irresponsible when they drive.

I assume that bastard is being charged with 2 counts of vehicular manslaughter, right?

RIGHT?

Sorry to hear that, CC.

Drinking/smoking/what-have-you and driving is definitely not cool. I've always been adamantly against it.

If you're ever in the situation to prevent someone from driving impaired, do it. If not for their own safety, then for some innocent person's safety. Be the adult, step in.

Believe me TS, I know your pain. Last October 4 of my friends were killed in a drunk driving accident. The drunk driver that killed them got 3 years in prison.

That suck, man. Drunk drivers are the worst.

When i learn to drive, if i am going somewhere and think i might even have one drink, i'll take public transport. It's just too big of a risk to everyone on the road.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.
