this road is a free-for-all. cars easily come down s. 4 st and race that light and can be going 60 mph by the time they get to
MLK intersection. we desperately need police presence !

I think it was a smart move. I've seen accidents like this in Allentown, and the first thing the survivors do is wipe the car clean of all the drugs and guns in it and take off. Plus they've probably sobered up or came off their high when they turn themselves in. They therefore beat the counts of driving while impaired, possession, intent to deliver, unlicensed weapons, and so on. Leaving an accident scene is a slap on the wrist compared to those.

You guys can find any reason to hate. I recall the guy who ran over a pedestrian near Shepherd Hills and got off because he claimed he didn't see the guy. Most people on this site thought the guy was full of crap, but nobody got all ethnic about it.

Years ago a MAN would own up to his responsibility. Now a days men are pretty much a bunch of cowards. I know I am being broad in that statement but its true.

Did he think he was holding his breath? I can't believe we allow people this stupid to procreate. Wouldn't his daughter be included in "his family"? I don't suppose he had a wife though. Is that how you care for your daughter, speeding around town without a license late at night?

The Lehigh County District Attorneys office is a total sham. A couple of years back a young women by the name of Sheena Villa was murdered by a drunk driver. The Father of the Man who was charged in this case was a close friend with DA James Martin. Now this young man Admitted to the police during interviews he experienced blackouts when he drank. It proved malice when he got behind the wheel knowing this prior. He should have been charged with 3rd degree murder. He walked out of jail and went to the Carribean for 10 days. A witness and passenger (Boy friend) ran away from the Accident without rendering aid to the victim. No charges were filed against him. Here we have guy racing with his pals. A very impulsive and stupid thing to do , i agree, but setting his bail at $300,000.00. Are you kidding me? If James Martin wanted to tell the Community how he feels about minorities he did it here. If your White and you have money and you know James Martin then you can do business and get away with murder in Allentown. If not, then let's hang him high!
