Sadly, this loss of life and tragic event is once again brought to you by Alcohol. Alcohol. Ask for it by name and glamorize it socially.

Wait a mo'?

How can the driver of the van, who was thrown from the van, be charged with felony HIT AND RUN? DUI and manslaughter I understand but is being thrown from the van considered H&R?
Did he lie about being the driver? or what?

He probably was trying to leave the scene.

If he was DUI, I don't care what they charge him with.
