It's a shame you have to drive for yourself and the other person. If he was drunk, he should be hammered, if he had medical conditions, he should not be on the road. People need to pay attention to the road!!!!!!

I wonder if the police who worked the accident performed a breathylizer test? Is it unreasonable, considering the seriousness of this unexplainable collision, for a magistrate to order a blood test to see if prescription drugs, perhaps in combination with alcohol, were a contributing factor? Or did the cause of this tragedy get a free pass from the po-po because he is old and white? Reckless driving is a more serious charge than failure to keep right of center, but if alcohol or drugs were a factor than an even more serious charge might be in order. It wouldn't be the first time that police let an white, elderly driver get by with minimal consequences for causing a serious inexcusable collision.

I think to all of you that are not in law enforcement should not make assumptions on what happened or on how the magistate or the agency working the accident should of handled it. You were not there! I am sure at atleast once in your driving career you have made an error and was lucky enough not have had an accident. Thank God that the persons involved was not seriously injuried.

I also think teenagers should not get a license until they are at least 20.

50 years old? I don't think people born below the Mason-Dickson Line should be allowed to drive, When the light turns green it takes 10 seconds for them to react and push on the gas peddle.

Sorry, but in a free society we do have the right to question the wisdom and integrity of law enforcement officers and the courts. I know for a fact that investigating officers from one particular agency went out of their way to try to place blame on the young victim of a collision caused by an elderly driver, going so far as to continue to badger the injured woman with leading questions as she waited for the ambulance transport, and one even let an anti-semitic remark slip out. No investigation of vision, prescription drug use, or other impairment was ordered even though the geezer made a left hand turn, not into the path of the other vehicle, but into the other vehicle sending it into a spin and multiple overturns. I consider those to troopers to be Pieces of Ignorant Gutless Sheit, and I am within my rights as a U.S. citizen to hold and express that opinion.

\ I've seen for myself an accident involving a young driver who was blamed by the responding officer for an accident, even when the facts at the scene eventually proved otherwise, so how did that happen? It was because the officer most likely knew the older driver, and did not test them for anything, The older driver died of natural causes before the accident was even fully investigated. It turned out that the older driver was most likely heavily medicated because of a terminal medical condition. Don't ever tell a civilian not to question authority, Law Enforcement Officers, just like everyone else on this planet are not perfect, usually far from it.

Although our injuries were non-life threatening, they were serious and required several surgeries , several weeks in the hospital, months of physical therapy, months of missed work and our injuries were also life-altering. Yes, I thank God, every day, that we survived such a crash.
