My husband works with the father of the girl that was killed. She and her husband had just had a baby.Now the baby and husband have to live without a mother to raise and love the child,and,the husband has to live without his young wife. It's really a bad thing to wish on someone,but,I think it's good that the drunk driver died. It saves the courts and the hospitals alot of money. Now he won't be able to kill anyone else. Our thoughts and prayers are with you M&D Cage.

I noticed you have some high profile attorney's who own bars and push the booze and fight for longer drinking hours. They really have a gamut running.

I don't think this problem is solely due to drunk drivers. It is not. It's mostly a combination of stupidity combined with some drinks. I've been driving after consuming alcohol all my life (over 20 yrs) and was never involved in any accident or got a traffic ticket as a result of alcohol consumption. If a person is stupid, impulsive or aggressive by nature, he or she would be involved in an accident regardless of drinking. Of course a person should never drive if he is heavily intoxicated, but moderate consumption is OK when combined with extra carefullness. Stop this DUI hysteria
You are obviously related to Ted Kennedy and stay drunk. What a moron.

well "sideways" it's a true tragedy either way. I only asked because I used to live in clermont and knew someone with that name when I was in high school. My heart goes out to her family and I hope for a speedy recovery to the others...

**** and two paragraphs later it states ****.
"The Groveland man, who has not been identified pending next-of-kin notification, has a previous DUI arrest from 2003."
WAIT A TIC!!! They already identified the man in the story earlier!!!!!
I caught that too! Great I hope he was identified by the family already or it sure would not be nice to wake up to and see your loved ones name in the paper. I for one am waiting on toxology reports to make an assumption on whether or not he was drunk. His arrest was in 2003. That was 5 years ago. We will see.

I feel for the girls family. A terrible tradgedy. However Nate was one of my friends. Im mad at him for this but I will deeply miss him. He was a wonderful man. He had a huge heart and was as nice as could be to everybody. Sadly he made this huge mistake and paid for it with his life and unfortunately so did an innocent young lady and everybody she left behind. My heart goes out to every person affected by this on either side of the fence. May their memories live on and remember the good times.

You can blame the judges that allowed a repeat offender to drive again and take an innocent person's life. A definite tragedy.
The revolving door judicial system is in desperate need of repair.
One DUI is not a repeat offender.

Had he survived, this would have been his SECOND offense. Are you trying to be witty?
