Again Channel 6...this is NOT an ACCIDENT.

Mr. South of the Border was INTOXICATED and chose to drive his vehicle while DRUNK and in turn ran off the road and nearly killed himself and whomever he ufortunately hits.

It wasn't an ACCIDENT that this happened...it was a CRASH caused by a wreckless drunk.

Obviously you are not going to change the way they report these "motor vehicle collisions." So please get over yourself. We all know what happened already!

Unless you meant that Carlos Velazquez was south of the Bartlesville border, you're an idiot. The man was from Collinsville. What proof do you have of him being intoxicated? I would sooner believe the truck driver was cranked out of his mind. Especially since the semi was heading out of Collinsville.

um, the story stated that alcohol was a factor and that his pick up crossed the center line and hit the semi. Did you not read the story??

Troopers say alcohol may have played a role in the accident, but they are still investigating.

Did you not read the story??

To RnR:
Apparently you are one of those people that don't know in order to drive a semi, you not only have to have a CDL license you also have to have a drug test and a physical. Cranked up I think not.

Please do not jump to conclusions. I have met the guy and he is a very nice person. He has lived here for a very long time and was visiting a friend who has lost his wife.

Would you people saying insensitive things QUIT! Carlos was not illegal - he pays taxes and has a family. He is hurt very badly. What do you think his family, friends and coworkers are thinking when they read your ignorant comments. You do not know all the facts and need to be quiet until the investigation is complete.

You guys are so funny... Gas wont go up for the repairs of the truck. QT is banking this month, haven't you seen the price of gas at QT? When it goes down, they're making money. They have so much money, it's like pocket change to throw the truck away and purchase a new one. As for drinking, yes, he more then likely was but not just because he was "Mexican". Geese people. It's not just mexicans that run around without insuaance... I know at least 4 people that aren't carrying it right now because they just simply can't afford it.
As for you BA MOM

WOW, maybe you need to visit the BAD side of mexico and see why the majority of them come over here and RISK THEIR LIVE'S to get here. They live with dirt floors, no doors and worries of wild dogs and animals killing them while they simply go out back of the house (without privacy) just to pee. They tell stories in mexico of the way we live here and to them it sound's like paradise, which WE americans take for granted "RUNNING WATER, FLUSHING TOILETS, RESTURANTS on every corner, LUXURY OF HAVING A CAR, BIG HOUSES, and so much more. So before you go judging... do some research, leave your back yard and possibly zip code. Live a little and maybe you will want to change the WORLD (Muahahahahaha)

Hey intrigued, how's life in the great state of Northern Mexico? Listen. Just because the standard of living sucks in Mexico it does NOT equal a right to violate the laws of a sovereign nation and live here illegally. Sure it sucks down there. But it is the fault of thier government not we who live with the benifits our forefathers sacraficed to allow us to have. There is a system that allows them to move here. My friens wife from England just now got everything in place after 2 years and $20,000. It's a long slow expensive process and she was once turned back in detroit over an oversight on thier part, sucked, but it was the law. If u think the system is messed up lets vote on it, but buddy if we do u'd see a wall go up quick cause BAMOM up there ain't alone. I have several mexican friends that are here illegally, nice hard working people, but still illegal. I wish them the best but the law is the law. So, why don't u let us worry about what happens in our zip code and u take care of things in ur own neighborhood?

Peace

I'm Carlos' sister and we're dealing with this tragic accident as best we can. I would appreciate it if people would stop with the critical comments and understand that he is badly hurt. We need prayers and good wishes not a**hole comments right now. We don't know all of the facts just yet. All I know is that my brother was severely injured in the accident and he's not doing well at all. I live in PA and I'm trying to get out to him asap. Those of you that have said nice things about him, thank you. He's a wonderful person and he has a great family that he needs to stick around for.

By the way, this message is for sports mom, just because his last name is latin doesn't mean he's mexican. My brothers and I were born and raised in New York. We are of Puerto Rican descent. I probably speak better English than you do. I would appreciate you stop with the insensitive comments. They're not helping at a time like this. I hope you and your family never experience anything like this.
