Did it happen in the morning or at 11:45 PM?! Do we need to take up a collection for the Sentinel to get a proofreader?

Bet he was drunk. Stupid fool. How many times do you/we need to have it beat into our heads. Wear your seat belt.

I don't think a collection would foot the bill, but I heard the local elementary school students might be some competition!

a lot of these rural roads are downright dangerous, especially the intersections.

in this case, the guy with the seat belt was smart, the other guy not so smart. always wear your seat belt!

Of course we're guessing this is probably another illegal alien, and of course the cheap-labor open-borders Sentinel won't tell us useful information like that.

So we're left to take educated guesses.

If anyone has a problem with that, tell the Sentinel to reveal the immigration status of irresponsible criminals like this. Then we won't have to guess.

That's right! You never can tell when a stupid, drunk __________you know) will come barreling at you and your loved ones. Luckily they sometimes kill themselves against trees or bridge abutments.

It was 11:45 AM. Traveling this road almost everyday, I'd say it was just pure speed.
They ride your tailpipe (even when you go slightly OVER the speed limit) and then either make an unsafe pass or are going too fast to negotiate the curve.

My housemate was killed on Freedom Blvd many years ago, January 1996.

A car driven by an illegal immigrant who already had many DUI's and no license was over the yellow line.
She's dead. He got two years. Probably driving around today.

For a few years, there was a cross at the site of that accident.

One less gringo as far as they're concerned.

How can you people all be so inconsiderate? This man is fighting for his life. Have a little bit of compassion. Yes, we all know he should've been wearing his seat belt, but guess what he wasn't. Stop being such a-holes & have a little respect. This man was a local, born and raised in this community.
