It's too bad that this irresponsible ash hole will do serious time only because there has now been a death.

So sad. If your're going to drink, don't get behind the wheel. Everyone thinks they're not the one who is going to kill somebody. One never knows. You could be the next vehiculiar manslaughter suspect.

Im so sorry to hear that one has passed....
I found this odd for several reasons.........
How many girls change their own flat tires?
How many asian girls who are young change flat tires?
How many girls change flats at 3am on the side of the freeway?
Nowadays- just slow down and drive off the freeway... worried about runining your factory stock rim? who cares.. theres tons of factory rims on ebay...
For anyone reading--- dont trust the shoulder..
drunks are attracted to the flashing lights and drive into them....
why do you think so many drunks rear end police units that are on the side of the freeway tending to other matters?

CHP should hold sobriety checkpoints on Freeway entrance ramps, specially on weekends from 10pm - 4am.

so sad . i;m sorry this young person lost her life . my prayers go out to her family . the authoritys were talking about a device thats installed into vehicles that you breath into and if your alcohol level is too high then the car doesn't start . i think they should stop talking about it and do it . too many innocent people are getting killed behind these drunk drivers .

what a shame, actually your supposed to stay in your car, but they still would've been hit. parents tell your kids, get off the freeway or as far away from your vehicle as possible. never try and change he tire yourself. thats what trople a is for.

They were with a male friend. They were missing a jack so they called a friend to bring them one so they can change it. The male friend they were with went walked away to make sure the friend that was coming was coming at the right direction.

In this day and age people there is NO reason to drink and drive. Call a friggin cab. There are some tow companies that will tow you and your car home for free if you are drunk and worried about leaving your car some where.
