Imagine that, a rubber cone didn't stop the drunk. They need to invent some type of portable chemical activating barrier that can expand with water then dissolve the save way. Either that or let the highway department use their big dump trucks to set up barriers for their workers and shut down an entire lane

This drunk will be the first prosecuted under the law that went into effect at 12:00 a.m. last night.

Lock his drunk dumb a$$ up for the next 200 years.

If the injured worker dies, run the drunk over with dump trucks until he is part of the road!

That would be justice.

Perhaps that's a new type of paving substance... maybe it would hold together longer better than current types. Something to think about!

There just aren't words to say how sorry I am to the family of the injured worker. My thoughts and prayers are with them and I hope he pulls through. Also there aren't enough words to say how disgusted I am with this person who decided to drive drunk and put everyone else's lives in jeapardy. People will never learn. There is no excuse for getting behind the wheel when you are intoxicated.

Take a look at his mug shot, he isn't just drunk he is plastered.

Retired Henrico cop?? Let me guess this is the first and only time he has ever driven drunk? Pisspoor example set by this guy. Anybody want to bet he gets a LIGHT sentence??

I doubt it. He will be the first to be prosecuted under the new law.

I hope they throw the book at him!

Let's just hope the man he hit recovers.

I hope they throw the book at him . LOCK HIS SORRY @$$ up. Even though he is RETIRED HE SHOULD STILL OBEY THE LAWS & SET AN EXAMPLE. They need to FOLLOW THROUGH WITH THE LAWS & DON"T SUSPEND ONE DAY & TAKE AWAY HIS LICENSE.
I hope the construction worker will be okay. They are out there putting there lives on the line to make the roads better at night thinking it is safer because of less traffic then you have these IDIOTS WHO THINK DRINKING & DRIVING IS OKAY.
DRINK AT HOME & STAY OFF THE ROAD BEFORE YOU KILL SOMEONE OR YOURSELF.

I'm willing to bet occured in a work zone where we pay an off duty state trooper to protect the VDOT workers/contractors with their flashing blue lights when all they really do is sit and read the newspaper. Everyone realize these safety measures are a farce and most don't slow down at all or even drive any safer. Maybe if we used on duty state troopers actually observing the traffic flow and using radar to enforce those construction speed zones an accident like this could be avoided. This waould actually achieve the objective of making these areas safer and for those who broke the law, the state would get much needed revenues from the traffic fines imposed.

Bob, you seem very knowledgeable and yet, frustrated. I understand your dilemma.

In case anyone hasn't realized or thought long enough to consider the situation, the man at fault did have a long career keeping the streets safe and risking his life for the sake of others. With that in mind I'm sure he feels even worse about the crime he committed and that all those years he spent protecting are now smeared by this tragic mistake. Nobody's perfectly law abiding. Not even cops. So please think humanly not judgementally when errors are made. By the way I am not a cop and am generally made paranoid by them.

he shouldnt have been drinking and driving ,but these people working on the road need to watch what they are doing too. i almost hit some one yesterday at another work zone...i wasnt going fast, but the man just walked out in front of me without even looking!!!! im glad i saw him comming or i could have hit him too. so they also need to watch what the hell they are doing too!

I blame the drunks. Chain him to the back of a dump truck and drag him down the highway until he is part of the road.

See how he likes it.

So Stanley is throwing wild drunken parties!! Doesn't he know that the HOST can be prosecuted. Tucker is th SOB that arrested my husband 10 years ago for DUI. I wonder if he will get the same harsh punishment my Joey got.

SHAME on the HCPD. Maybe he can borrow money from Officer Lacy!!!

Dito...... I am sure he will be treated differently because he is a blue man. The HCPD stick behind liars, cheaters and drunks.
