How many more people have to lose their lives before people get the message alcohol and driving do not mix???
This woman will get a slap on the wrist and will go out and kill again!!!
Why wasn't she in jail for her burglary charges, or how about driving with a suspeneded license??? Oh I'm sorry, this is the country when the accused are always given 2, 3 or how many chances.
The victim, however,only got one chance. Tell his wife and child about the poor drunk driver that has such a sad story to tell. I am sure they will feel sorry for the accuser!

I think it funny how people can judge others without knowing what happened. This situation is something you obviously will never understand because you obviously never make mistakes. This is a tragedy. You are right rinking and driving is a terrible choice. What you dont know is the man and woman were friends… He took her out and bought his underage friends shots of liquor. She did not kill him, yes she bumped him off his bike but 3 different cars ran over this man and NEVER EVEN STOPPED as this frantic girl searched for her friend! Yes, did she make a horrible mistake – but do not judge what you do not know! This was all caught on video and even the police state that she did not kill him. This 43 year old man should have been home with his wife and child instead of out buying shots for a 20 year old friend. You want to be outraged??? Be outraged that three people after running over a man never had the decency to stop to help. They both made a terrible mistake that two families are grieving.

Both of you are right and wrong...I was a friend of his wifes and baby sat for his beautiful son..It is TRUE drinking and driving is horrible but as the wife of Robert Lovell who also lost his life to a massive heart attack on 12-10-11 while on a bike...no matter what the story or case..if u really give a damn about the family ,remember... we have nothing to do at night but cry and miss them and read comments about our loved ones that may make our minds even more lost and confused than before... Fact is somebody died without warning. Leaving Wife Children Family and community in shock and sadness..please dont degrade the last moments of their life in a public forum...the facts are facts..dont share ugly opnions that his grieving wife WILL read.. I KNOW when my husband left he was coming home and he didn't..and thats the hardest fact.. and its the same for her no matter what the reason....

As a true motorcyclist..drinking on bikes should never be done. Its bad enough we have to watch out for those who "dont see us" and then to add liquor to the mix, is a big no-no.
I'm sorry the man lost his life, and this young woman will live with the memory and for those who did not stop,,well KARMA is a bitch!!
Sadly the fact remains, he should have been home with his family and not out drinking with someone half his age. Stay Alive, Be Aware, Watch out for the Other guys!! Dont drink & Ride!! A warning of caution to ALL RIDERS!!
