    Drunk driving could hv turned into manslaughter. You hv been given a second chance Mr 24 yr old. U better pay attention

    if he was arrested at the scene then why didn’t the police say so in their initial reports? Why does it take until Monday for them to tell us this basic fact? there may be a very good reason and I am open to hearing it but this strikes me as odd.

      Are you assuming the Police gave the initial report? Maybe they did, I assumed the story was reported on by Bernews? They are not obliged to provide the public with every little bit of info for every situation. Don’t they have to take the individual to the station or hospital for a test to prove it, especially when unsure. Can you imagine the outrage from the public if he had been accused first and the Police had said so – only to find out later they were wrong?

    Yeah…. Luckily no one got seriously injured or it could’ve been really bad for the driver. He still needs 2 years off the road and enrolled into a dui program. This cannot repeat itself.

    Also drinking in the company work truck? Should be saving all that for happy hour.

      It’s a shame the door was ripped off in the accident so the public can’t tell from the photos which company this truck driver worked for. I hope whoever it is cracks down on their employees’ driving habits. The sad thing is that if they are the sole driver for the business and their livelihood depends on it, then they can’t/won’t be taken off the road. Scary thought for the rest of the public. This could have ended much worse.

    If you rely on a Police statement all your life your gonna be behind for a long time.

    His arrest means nothing except afford you an answer to your thoughts or reason.
    Get real “just wondering”.
