I am a victim
of a driver who was on parole for driving while
drunk. He left the scene of an injury accident
and was found later slumped over his steering wheel,
too drunk to drive further. I watched him run two red
lights after he pulled away from the rear of my
vehicle to escape.

the lucky ones who survived; but, have great
compassion for the families of those left behind.
