    I think you should do a follow up on this article because according to the Daily News, it was found that the driver was not drunk. Not to excuse what happened but I think it’s important to follow up.

  8. After looking at the pictures of the cars, I’m starting to think that drag racing played a bigger part in this accident than drinking.

  9. Terrible, terrible thing my condolances go out to his family. I think the laws should be much more stronger. Lives are taken every day becuse of DWI.

  10. This is like the worst thing that can happen. My heart goes out to his family. This is what I think of every time I step inside a car. When will people ever learn. Just shows you how precious life is.
