Want to

bet that booze is a major factor here?

And not just the name of the road either.

What a tragedy

the young woman was killed and her loved ones have to go on without her. May they get the strength to carry on. My condolences to all of them.
And someone is out there hopefully having the decency to turn him/herself in.

Sounds like they caught him.

Sounds like they caught him. I sure hope so and hope they throw the book at him. I'm sure he will claim some nonsense like "I felt a bump, but thought I hit a dog". Yea, right.

ACCIDENT OR MURDER: Too Many Cars on the Road

Aiken joins Augusta and Richmond County in Vehicular Murders. More money should be spent on encouraging walking instead of dangerous cars. They cause wars, Trade deficits, murders, and air pollution. They are costly to run, to maintain and cause badly needed U.S. Dollars to be spent overseas. More crimes are associated with cars than nearly anything else. Religiously speaking, They actually run on dragon's blood.
