When you go 100 miles an hour to catch air over railroad tracks, plus drinking and driving this the outcome. It is very disappointing that these so called men would put their lives and others lives at risk. They affected not only those in the accident but also their entire families. These guys are young fathers, lucky to be alive and to see their children! They are lucky that they did not kill the mother and baby! This driver has a reputation with the law,and it is his 2nd DUI offense.

Seriously?! Flying 200 ft off the road? C'mon editor, car's don't fly! Way to spruce up a story though. Not to mention where did you get your facts? If you're not a complete idiot, you can clearly see the driver of the vehicle that crashed, Was not negotiating a lane change. Did you see the skid marks? Or was the F250 some kind of top secret drag racing truck that could do 0-70 in twenty feet without making skid marks while launching the vehicle? If you're wondering why no one is trusting media lately it's because of poorly written articles like this one.

this is sloppy reporting; we're not as interested in the 200 ft. rollover as U R. The confusion over 'car', the driver, a man, a mother, 'truck', driver, etc. & "DUI" is all yours. explain the sequence of events in a simple paragraph First. Editor?
