    Brother in law and wife's sister took the family to the N GA mountains for Christmas.....took a ride into Chattanooga. Headn back to the cabin around 4pm today, they crossed paths with a drunk driver.

    She's in surgery for broken bones in leg and arm...was driving. Others in the truck ok. 2 kids all ok. Coulda been worse.

    Red truck is theirs...got it last week!

    There's a moral to this story...that some people will NEVER learn.

    Yuck. Broken bones is a terrible way to spend Christmas. Driving the twisty roads around Chattanooga is bad enough when sober. At least they weren't knocked off the side of a mountain .:scare3:

    Hate to hear that. Prayers for a speedy recovery. Hope they fry the drunk! Hate to say it but, probably just a slap on the wrist. Our justice system sucks anymore with people like that. Usually it's the innocent people who get hurt and the drunk walks away without a scratch.

    Prayers sent for all. Same thing happened to a friend of mine and his wife. 2 years later and I think the may be finally done with many surgeries, they almost died, had to use the jaws of life to extract them from the car. People that drink and drive need to do some serious jail time, especially if they hurt people like this. My friends will forever be changed by their accident.

    You might not believe this, but the current maximum jail time no matter how many convictions for DWI in Maryland is 3 years.
    Yep, you saw that right. 3 years.
    Now, if there was a death involved, it goes up accordingly.
    I went to court last year to fight a speeding ticket & there was a guy ahead of me with 9 DWI's. NINE DWI's.
    He got 3 years, with work release. He was out before the end of the year.
    HUH?

    Oldest kid was parked and about 25 ft away from car. Guy came along clipped the car and ran into block bld. Put in reverse , waved and drove off with car steaming. Son followed him and called police. It was his 4th DUI, had gotten out on bail 2 days before for, you guessed it DUI. His attorney called me and asked if i would drop charges so he could get out and pay son for damages. Conversation really went downhill after that. Told him his loser scumbag client should stay in jail till he rots. I would do nothing to help get him out in fact would do anything i could to keep him in jail. And that only thing worse than his client was the loser he had for an attorney. Sorta was end of conversation, line for some reason went dead. :unknown: :ponder:
