yeah, when I'm sober I always hit people and drag their body down the road. It's actually happened four times this week and I just don't know why anyone would think it's my fault.. it's the people, they keep jumping out in front of my truck and making me spill my Mad Dog. That shtuff isn't cheap either and it stains my seats.

yet another drunk kills yet another person in SA and nothing will happen. It'll probably happen again tonight, tomorrow, several times on the weekend, and of course at least one on Christmas. It just wouldn't be a Christmas in SA without a drunk killing one person or maybe getting an entire family. Meanwhile some people will defend their ability to function after only a couple of drinks or blame the ambulance driver.

If by horrible and tragic you mean "completely 100% avoidable" then yes, we can agree.

I'll never, ever understand the sympathy these drunken idiots get around here.

Not to make light of the situation, but he was drinking all night, and still shown up for work on time as a vendor? Sounds like he lives that life everyday

Prayers to the family of the deceased

" The driver, who is a vendor at the flea market, told officers that he had been drinking alcohol prior to the incident, police said."

He said that he was drinking, and he killed a person while DUI. Is that not enough?

First of all, my prayers go out to the victims family. Secondly, having shopped at this fleamarket before, I am surprised it hasn't happened sooner! I mean this flea market is like going to Mexico. And I don't mean the Ricardo Monte alban kind.
