  15. Whistling Frog says:

    I saw the ambulances rushing back towards the hospital early Sunday morning, you could tell it was something serious the way they were pushing. I’m praying for a speedy recovery of the twins….

  16. The Hell!! says:

    This pisses me the hell off they check for seat belts and cell phones on the road side. How about sobriety road side checks? I hope for a speedy recovery for the twins.

    • Tommy Chong says:

      Police do sobriety checks here but its usually only at 3am on the Johnny Barns round about. Drunk drivers in town know this & go around the back onto north shore to avoid so they get missed. Also out of town DUI drivers get missed out. BPS have better thinks to do on a weekend night like sitting at the 24/7 gas station eating pizza.

      Wishing the utmost blessings for the twins.

  17. The Hell!! says:

    I guess road side sobriety checks are to much work, more work than just writing a ticket to make quick money other wise they would have put it on the books. Our law makers, the only thing they make is me sick. Get well soon twins.

  18. CYGNET says:

    To my twin cousins wishing you a speedy and full recovery. Prayers to Parent cousins to be strong and have faith. POSITIVE THOUGHTS GIVES POSITIVE RESULTS.

  19. Oh well!!! says:

    Prays are with the twins, their parents, grandmother and family. Praying for a speedy and full recovery. They are great guys. Will also pray for the person who thought it was okay to drink and drive. When will the lesson be learned. So many lives have been effected by this thoughtless act.

  20. wandering says:

    We are a family that knows the power of prayer and our faith is strong. R & R we are praying for your miraculous recoveries.

  21. Shaking my head says:

    What’s really sad about this system is that this woman has probably been advised to refuse being tested so that she’ll only be considered on suspicion of and given a lesser sentence.

    Really hope these men recover from their ordeal from this completely preventable accident/crime.

  22. Bermy girl says:

    Come on guys make a quick recovery…Praying for you…If you must drink, take a cab. Lets be responsible….now these young men have to pay for her alleged mistake.

  23. Clinton J. A. Paynter OBA Affiliated says:

    When I heard the news I couldn’t believe it… I wish my cousins a speedy recovery.

  24. Union Member says:

    Road side sobriety is not just the answer. Our culture is to drink and have a good time, which is cool, but most of us must admit we drive after a social outing….and we drive after we’ve had the 1 or 2 drinks that puts us over the legal limit. We need to change our culture really and make it cool for people to take your keys or the bartender to call you a taxi or to have breathalyzers at drinking establishments. I’m sure this lady driver wasn’t allegedly drinking alone. Praying for all parties involved.

  25. Sarah says:

    MORE THAN HALF MY TAXI DRIVES ARE DRUNK!!! as a female, its safer to drink and drive than be subject to a drunk man at the wheel of a taxi who then finds out where you live!!!!!!!

    • WTF says:

      What an unfortunate statement Sarah. If you risk subjecting yourself to harm either by drunk driving or by getting in a cab driven by a drunk then maybe the sensible choice would be to not drink. That way you can drive home sober.
