Maybe she cancelled it so scum like you wouldn't look at it! Just a thought! Loser get a life! If you don't know her the last thing you should be doing is judging her. When you get a legal degree respond back!

I went to school with Tressa - most of the people in school didn't like her, and she did gross things in order to get people to like her. She did cancel her facebook page this morning, probably due to the fact that her profile picture was her with a Michael's bouncer.. which is the bar she was leaving when she hit this guy. She was underage in a bar and DRUNK, and she didn't want anybody to see any proof.

Please keep in mind that this is the worst thing this girl has ever faced. The things she may have done in high school have no bearing on the person she is today. The only information you have is what you hear on the news. If you didn't learn in high school that the media is seldom 100% correct, maybe you were spending too much time focusing on other people's actions. Alcohol was ruled out 100%, that's not even in question. It was an accident, that's all there is to it. Don't say hurtful things to entertain yourself, this is already tragic for everyone involved.

they said the man was walking in the street. The city should go after the home and business owners for not clearing snow and ice from sidewalks. I have seen people walking in the travel lane of central ave, thats very dangerous.

I agree Jim, I just had to get on a Marriott hotel because of thier lack of snow/ice removal. I had to walk in the street to get to my job. This is a street with toms of traffic, so I'm scared for my life. But they did clean it up right away....people need to clear the front of thier houses....it's a terrible thing to have to walk in the streets with the way people drive...even without drinking.

I would agree, however, I also know that the city plows pushed the snow from the road up onto the sidewalks this year. The amount of snow makes it to heavy and frozen to clear it. That area of Albany is neglected. City Trash collectors throw barrels and debris anywhere they want the sidewalk plows are reserved for the Elite!

It was an accident and accidents happen. How mature would you be to "rattle her cage", since I am sure if you were friends with him, you are around his age. Im sure thats exactly what your "friend" would have wanted you to do. So I dont think she is the scum here...

Ok if you want to continue to call this an accident then why did she leave the scene and I heard then she went back. I am sorry but it isn't like he was laying down in the street for you her to think it was a pothole this is a person walking in the street how the hell do you mistake that for a pothole. As for the person who said alcohol was already ruled out well we really don't know the time frame from when it happened to when she was arrested do we?

She sounds like she needs a reality check, I mean come on the other poster was right if you can't tell the difference between a pot hole and a person you should not be driving and I will not even get started on the drinking and driving, that is just plain stupid and unforgivable

Now that is a real mature thing to say, won't happen to me or most of the posters on here we have the common sense enough not to drink and drive it is not a hard concept

I hear you on that. Onced it is moved it freezes harder, then fresh snow. Then again people need to put their snow on their property, not the curb. Of course the city after many storms is going to push the banks towards the sidewalk.
