    I’m sick and tired of seeing innocent people killed by irresponsible that have no self control. Alcohol is a drug and needs to be treated as such! This is murder by the driver and should be treated with the utmost punishment.

      He has had multiple DUI’s!!! It is horrible this woman had to lose her life and a nine year old and an 18 year old are laying in the hospital in ICU for something to be done. So many lives destroyed by one mans actions. This doesn’t even count his children, wife, everyone’s family. It’s sad
