my nephew was killed by a drunk driver in apalachin....on rt 434...could have crashed into a bus full of kids, but passed the school bus and hit my nephew...the judge made allowances for the guy who had just been dumped by his girlfriend....bithday celebrations, graduations, etc...no excuses are acceptable for driving while drinking....my heart hurts for all familes involved...and i would be in the depths of despair if i killed a friend because i had been drinking...this is a no win situation....yes the girl should be charged....what the sentence should be...? young people need to learn that they are not invincible! driving under the influence, whether drugs or alcohol, is like gunning for people with a loaded gun...STOP.

This girl should spend the next 30 years in prison. She has taken two lives and ruined two families. Too bad NY abolished capital punishment. She knowingly drank, got intoxicated, and drove her vehicle. She is responsible for the people in her car no matter what her state of well-being is.

i actually knew all 3 of these people and, im not saying what was done was right, im just saying that it sucks to hear about something like that and not get to say goodbye to anyone of your friends and it hurts to think about them being gone. but everyone needs to realize that if your drinking and you feel drunk or you are fuckin drunk dont drive the god damn car go take a fuckin nap then later when your not drunk drive them home. and they say owego is the coolest small town in america well in the past 4 years there has been many drug involved deaths to people who are from here and well lets just say that this town is deffinately not the coolest small town in america. there is nothing for the youth to do so they go out and drink and party and this is what happens, not saying its owegos fault but maybe if there were more things for the youth to do this shit wouldnt happen as often.

MY HEART GOES OUT TO THE PENA AND AMMERMAN FAMILIES.

Unfortunately, people think they are invincible when they're trashed...or they think they aren't drunk. So they decide to drive. And of course, the person who's stupidly driving when they're too drunk to remember their own name never gets hurt much. But they almost always manage to hurt or kill someone else...it's too bad it couldn't be the other way around where the drunken moron takes themselves out of the gene pool.
