Don't drink and drive, and these things wont happen. I'm sorry for the loss of the innocent life which was lost due to 2 irresponsible people.

I doubt both drivers were drinking. Even if the dead female driver had been drinking, you'd be hard pressed to convince me she had any fault in this accident. The male driver was on the wrong side of the interstate and hit the female driver head on!! His family tried to say he must have just fallen asleep. Sorry!! Not buying it!!! When you fall asleep, you don't end up driving for a good distance on the wrong side of an interstate!! You crash into a wall or go into a ditch!! Someone who is DRUNK goes the wrong way down an EXIT ramp onto the interstate, then continues driving until they have a head on collision.

My thoughts are with these innocent females who were just trying to get home.

I had been waiting The toxicology report said that the mans alcohol content was 3.89. This is suppose to be comatose. I knew my daughter had two children and I trained her well to be domesticated. I did not live
out in douglasville. This was the only place she could get out on her own and have her own apartment. She had every right to head back to where her mother lives.

From what I
understand he had done this before but survived. My daughter was not from Douglasville it was the apartment and just getting out on
her own with her two children. I want the fools to know this. I am a New Ager and have always given my children quality time. Organization and discipline was my motto. Domestication was my place. I could not reply when it happened it was an unspeakable.
This man had an alcohol content of 3.89. 4.0 is dead. My daughter was not a drinker. Its amazing what idiots will say when the man was driving on the wrong side of the road Sacriledge

and HANG UP YOUR CELL PHONE and watch WHERE YOU ARE GOING.At 2 am, there is NOT alot of traffic on the roads.People do fall asleep and come into your lane.People do drink and drive and get on the WRONG side of the road.WATCH YOUR SURROUNDINGS,BE PREPARED IF THIS HAPPENS....... If you see someone coming at you on the wrong side of the road, MOVE OVER,Get your head out of your ass and watch your surroundings.I travel over 2500 miles per week.I see this ALL THE TIME..... If your driving, you should be prepared for ANY THING, deer jumping in your lane, dogs,people throwing rocks off over passes,drunk drivers weaving,people asleep and driving, people TEXT messaging and crossing the line.ITS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to WATCH YOUR SURROUNDINGS.DOnt assume just because you are not drunk the guy beside you ISN't......BE PREPARED!!!!.GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASS and OFF THE PHONE while driving.There are IDIOTS behind the wheel 100% of the time.
