thanks everyone... im still a little shaken up. he is recovering from his injuries ok... he felt a lot better when i gave him the update on the other driver. sheffield pd will not release any more info to him regarding the other driver. he is currently in a wheelchair with a broken arm and leg on the left and a broken leg on the right. i have been in contact with a woman who has been active in the alanon community for 26 years and has given me some resources for myself and my niece... my brother feels very guilty for letting my niece down (she lives with me and only visits with her father about once a month) and has said he needs help and wants to try to go to 90 meetings in 90 days so i hope he is at least a step closer to his road to recovery. god bless you all. thank you for everything.

i have no idea who this marie person is, but i am the mother of this mans ten year old daughter... all the info marie put in was true except that my daughter does not have an aunt named marie or an aunt in columbia county, and she lives with me, her mother. and i am very very concerned about all this information being available online... he did something wrong and was hurt and hurt someone else in the process... i feel like enough damage was done and now its all over the internet! marie: whoever you are, this is carissa, chloes mom... if you know chloe that means you know me. call me so we can talk.

Marie, you are way out of line. How dare you even mention Chole on here. If you had any concern for Ben or Chole, you are going about it in the wrong way. You are not Ben's sister and CHOLE, never ever lived with you. What kind of issues do you have to pretend to be someones sister, and aunt, which you are NOT. Marie, you dont need alanon meetingS you need psychiatric help. Who are you? DONT GIVE THIS "MARIE" ANY OF YOUR SYMPATHY, I PERSONALLY THINK SHE IS NOTHING MORE THAN A SAD SYCOPHANT. I have advised the mother of Chole, to contact the police and i have also spoken to ben, about this "marie". Why would anyone want to "piggy back" on such a terrible tragedy? Marie, if this is how you show your concern for Ben and his beautiful, innocent, daughter, do his family a favor and stay away. MY name is EDIN and anyone who knows Ben knows me. I am not hiding my identity and i'm not spreading any lies like you are. MARIE, DONT YOU DARE SPEAK FOR CHOLE, SHE HAS A MOTHER THAT IS MORE THAN CAPABLE OF SPEAKING FOR HER. AGAIN, MARIE, YOU AREA A SAD, SICK, AND LONELY, PERSON, WHO HAS INJECTED HERSELF INTO A TERRIBLE SITUATION JUST SO SHE CAN GET SYMPATHY FROM STRANGERS ON THE INTERNET. HOW SAD IS THAT.

who are you psycho? What kind of person interjects themselves into a terrible incident like this and asks for strangers sympathy? Ben's daughter doesn't live with you and she never has.

This is the first entry "Marie" posted. Doesn't sound like she's out to set things right here and be the Good Samaritan. She attacked with "most likely drunk..." and made assumptions about his abilities as a father while the guy, as it turns out, sits broken in a hospital. Excuse me for questioning her motives. She comes on Topix like a big shot, and slanders her brother without having all the facts (most likely drunk??). Then when someone calls her on it, she gets all soft all of a sudden, citing that she has a brother in the hospital, and she's out to make the world a better place. I say, Nonsense. Her intent was malicious right from the beginning, and I'm surprised there aren't more people who see this the way I do. If she really cared so much about her "broken" brother, she wouldn't be spending all this time attacking him on Topix. Flag this.
Cynic is totally 100% correct. THIS marie, is nothing but a maggot how feeds on others pain and problems. MARIE, GO see a shrink and stay out of ben and his daughter's life.

Why should he? The advice he gave her was sound. He responded appropriately to what this poster was relaying. The fact that she may be an imposter has no bearing on the relevance of his advice. It was 100% on the mark for anyone experiencing the horrors of what alcoholism can do to a family. If she is an imposter the onus is on her, not ramden.
time to move on

I think the best thing caring people could do to help the family at this point is to stay out of their business. Everyone put in their two cents and now let's turn it back over to the people it affects and let them try to heal.

If you really care...leave them alone now.

marie we have not forgotten your lies..... Come out come out where ever in upstate new york, you are. Marie, why are you injecting yourself into this awful accident. Marie, is this how you like to get attention? I wonder why you stopped posting and have not commented back? What kind of person pretends to directly involve themselves in a terrible accident and then ask for strangers sympathy? You got serious mental issues.
