1010wins.com - Sources: Wrong-Way Crash Driver Was over Legal Limit (http://www.1010wins.com/Source--Driver-Was-Drunk/4936601 - broken link)

WTF? Was she drinking all morning before she got in the car to drive 5 young children home?

Gee and everyone was painting her as this loving mom. What kind of loving mom would drive drunk with kids in the car. Grrrrrr

What was she thinking - ?! Last nite on the news they said there were witnesses saying she was driving very aggressively for a while. Wasn't her husband there w/ her and they took separate cars home - ? - what a shame he couldn't have take the kids home (or at least some of them). Unbelievable, I may be naive but I sure didnt expect this finding.

Her kids and her nieces were in the car. The only one that survived is her 5 year old son.

This is crazy !! Really stupid woman if this is true. I feel sorry for the the kids. I remember hearing this on the radio that she had spoken to her brother and told him she was not feeling well and her brother had offered to come and pick them up.

OF COURSE SHE WAS DRUNK! Sober people don't drive the wrong way on a highway for nearly 2 miles.

I thought based on what her brother said-about her being confused and disoriented-that maybe she had had a stroke. The whole thing is such a horror but g-d if that could have been avoided....

I think they ruled out a medical problem early on after the autopsy.
I bet they'll be lawsuits...
