There when it happened wrote:
As for the question regarding the baby... They seen a car seat that had flew out of one of the cars so everyone ( I was one of those who were looking) was looking for a baby but no one seen a baby... When the ambulance and fire trucks came a fire fighter looked also for a baby in the brush but also could not find one.. Later we found out that a child was not in the car... I didn't get close enough to the vehicle to see the bodies because that's not a sight I would like to see so I'm not sure who it was... The black car looked like a g6 but it was hard to tell and I couldn't tell what the other car was only it looked like a station wagon... I was one of the first people there as I was having dinner with my family... It was terrible and I will pray for those families who lost their loved ones... It was very tragic ...
How did they know for sure a baby wasn't in the car? The ppl were deceased so they couldn't answer. Did they call family? This is awful!

About 2pm today I met a silver station wagon on hwy 92 that was across the yellow line. That makes me wonder if it was the same person.

Whitley Co Jailtracker has a 31y/o David Vanderpool. You have to look in discharged inmates.

I pray for all the families that have lost a loved one, and by the car seat a child has lost probably both parents..don't know the vanderpool guy and god loves all of us but he is a failure of our system.. He has a wrap sheet a mile long on the Whitley co jail tracker and now he has taken all these lives by DUI no doubt..sure seems that way!! The judges who allowed this guy off and out of jail all those times should have to answer to somebody.. How many multiple offenses can someone commit before someone decides ur menace to society??

Was drunk drivers in this area before anywhere was WET. Think bout it. If your a drunk and your going to drive you will get the booze somewhere. Sad but a fact. Same as people who are high and drive.
Very Sad

What would you suggest they do with them? The jail is overcrowded due to domestic violence on the rise, meth everywhere, booze on every corner. Drive thru Corbin about midnight and all you see is people swerving everywhere!

Yea, because there is no other place to get alcohol... right? Making a county dry (or remaining dry) has nothing to do with the ability to get alcohol! If a person wants to drink, they are going to drink! A wet county is not to blame for a drunken driver... the drunken driver is responsible for getting behind the wheel of a car! Plus, ever heard of bootleggers? Or, do you think that possibly someone could drive to a "wet" county and buy alcohol legally? I THINK SO!

All making a county wet does is provide jobs (which are much needed), saves a person seeking alcohol such a long drive to get it (in which they are further from Home and may to decide to go ahead and drink on the way), put bootleggers out of business, etc. If alcohol was more accessable or the county was made "wet", a person could walk to the store and get it, instead of driving miles and miles!

The availability of alcohol does not make a person drink and drive! A person makes that decision! It is a personal (and stupid, selfish and careless) choice!

I'm not taking up for a driver that has drank one single drop... However, taking that drink was a personal choice and had nothing to do with the fact that now you can drive 15-20 minutes to get it! Again, maybe if it were more available here, a person wouldn't even have to drive that far to get it and would wait to open it!

By the way, statistics show that more Alcohol related driving accidents happen in "dry" counties!

I know this will be a factor in my reply, so I'll go ahead and answer for you... Yes, I am a Christian and am just as sincere to the innocent families that are affected by these types of things. It is horrible, unfathomable, rediculous and unacceptable! My heart goes out to all of those involved! May God be with them in this their time of need! I've prayed my heart out, and could not imagine! God knows that! It has really pulled on my heart, and I did not even know a single person involved. I did see one of the vehicles involved on my way Home! But that is neither here nor there! God knows I sympathize while empathizing... and there is a difference!

Again, in the conclusion... Alcohol is legal. Maybe not for sale in this county, but it is legal! Drinking and driving was a choice! Availability... NOTHING to do with it when it is already in "our" "dry" county!

Personal choices, personal choices, personal choices!

I agree... The Guy in this wreck, David Vanderpool has a long record in Whitley County of Theft, dope, drunk, violence with over a dozen arrests with multiple felonies ... I don't think a county being wet or dry had any effect on his actions... But a 3 Strikes and your in prison for Life would have....

We need more "Hanging" Judges in the court system... Take the case of the woman that sold her baby for a truck a few months ago... She was caught with Meth, precursors for meth, and traded her baby for a pick up truck.... She received 180 days sentence and was given credit for time served so she will be released in a couple of weeks...
