In this day and age when no one wants to get involved it is refreshing to read about people like this good samaritan.I only hope some one like this will be around when other people should ever need assisstance even though it is sad the victim in this particular instance died.My sympathy goes out to his family.

Maurice was a great guy. He didn't deserve this. I'm glad Good Samaritan was there when he was. At least she will hopefully be held accountable for her actions. They must have done blood work on the killer when she was hospitalized with her minor injuries, and they would have found any Medication she may have been on. I also would like substantiation of the Mental Hospital info.

this was a hit and run...why the hell didn't she stay or call for help? just for that fact alone, I personally think she's guilty and should be held accountable.

Mo was a decent guy, and nobody deserves to have that happen to him or her, but I find it funny that the perps attorney would begin to lay the groundwork for the unfortunate goofball drivers defense right here! Ain't that right counselor?! Good luck, she still contributed to the death of another human being who was minding his own business AND THEN SHE TRIED TO RUN!!!! Nice Job - Good Samaritan

I and all his friends and family are grateful to this person that went above and beyond to ensure that this person was brought to justice. Mo didn't deserve to have his life and our time with him cut short. We will miss him greatly, but will remember all the great times we had with him.

Who laid out the Mental Hospital story?Attorney? Shame Shame. Friend?
If you are a friend of hers why didn't you drive her home?I'm sure they took blood tests when she was at the hospital being treated for an accident she caused and those results can be used against her in a court of law.THANK YOU GOOD SAMARITAN.

As I read the comment on the mental hospital response I read it as this. 1st They should have not released her in a sedated state, they should have known better. 2nd She knew what she was doing and yes there should be action taken but to take action againist her only would not be right. Both the hospital and her should be accountable for this tradgedy.

Ah, now I see. Clearly, it was not the driver's fault. She is an unfortunate victim of Driving While Intoxicated Syndrome (DWIS), with ancillary symptoms of Treated as an Adult Syndrome (TAAS).
