Everyone needs to pay attention to your local legislators. There is a strong push to lighten the DUI consequences b/c they are "too inconvenient" and "how is a man supposed to support his family when he has no driver's license to get to and from work". The legislators are trying to target DUI's resulting in death. You can't target those without making the consequences for a DUI more strict. If the consequences were more severe for this guy then maybe these 5 people would stay alive.

My heart and prayers go out to the familes and victims of this heinous crime. I never met Sawyer but I am a mother of three children. I can't imagine the pain and suffering the families must be going through. My daughter went to school with Sawyer. It has been a very emotional weekend.
All I can say to the children out there is support one another. Perhaps change how we interact with one another.
To all of the parents, hug and kiss your kids everyday. Life is precious.

I can remember pulling up behind this accident just after it happened. I just happened upon this story while looking for something else and it brings back some bad memories. I was on my way to visit my sister who lived in morgantown at the time. I can still remember hearing the fire whistle as I was getting back in my car at the gas station by the entrance ramp about two miles from the crash. I pulled up to the crash before any emergency personnel had arrived. My muscles tensed as I saw the carnage ahead of me. I was stuck there for three hours watching emergency workers come and go along with life flight landing on the highway. Then, when a man came back and told everyone that 5 people, including 3 kids, had been killed by a useless drunk, I remember the sense of despair that fell over all of us. I honestly will never forget this as long as I live. Such a sad and preventable tragedy to see right in front of you. May god rest their souls.
