I was hit by a hit and run driver a couple years ago. Makes me feel blessed when I think how lucky I was.

Terrible story



but...

I did LOL at this:
"Deputies said the suspect became combative and verbally threatened officers when they woke him up, so they were forced to Tase him. The suspect became cooperative after that."

Don't know if all states are the same, but here loaning your vehicle to
a drunk is the same as driving while drunk. You own the vehicle you
are responsible for the use of it no matter who is driving.

A terrible waste of life!
