LOCK HIM UP HE WAS OBVIOUSLY INTOXICATED, SPEEDING AND FAILING DUTIES AS A DRIVER. DUI AT THE VERY LEAST. HE ENDANGERED 5 LIVES AND PROBABLY SUPPLIED THE ALCOHOL THEY HAD TOO! I BELIEVE OUR POLICE DEPARTMENT WILL DO THE RIGHT THING. GO GET EM MCMINNVILLE POLICE.SORRY FOR THE CAPS BUT THIS PISSES ME OFF BEYOND ALL. HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO SEE OUR FRIENDS GET KILLED BY A DRUNK DRIVER BEFORE WE LEARN NOT TO GET INTO THE CAR OURSELVES. SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT.

While you serve a valid argument, every single one of them is over 18, legally an adult, able to make thier own moral and value judgements. They CHOSE to drink in excess, they Chose to let a drunk driver behind the wheel of a vehicle they would be riding in, they CHOSE their destiny that night. What I do wish we would have a chance to vote on is whether or not it is attempted murder. The driver CHOSE to get behind the wheel of a huge chunk of metal, and chose to allow passengers in his vehicle. He also made the CHOICE to be driving on public roads, thereby endangering every person he passed.

Intoxicated drivers should be forced to accept attempted murder charges like the family of their victims are forced to live without their loved ones.

The driver should get jail,fined and suspended license,but the others should also be fined and have their license suspended for a lessor time and have to take care of the gravesites of people killed by drunk drivers for a year,every weekend.They all new what they were doing,and sometimes you can fix stupid.

The idiots riding in the car with the drunk guy should get into trouble too in my opinion.

While I would like to add my comments... I think that 'Manup' has said it the best. Very good 'Manup'. Thanks..

If the driver was under the influence he should be charged with as much as possible. However, I don't think we should legislate or make stupidity a crime. All the passengers are adults and had to make the choice to get in the vehicle. Our jails and prisons are full enough as it is. If they didn't learn their lesson from this crash they'll likely end up as poster children for the Darwin awards sometime in the future.

ALL OF YOU ARE DUMB. AND DONT KNOW ANYTHING YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT. HOW ABOUT YOU SHUT UP UNLESS YOU KNOW THE SITUATION. THEY ALWAYS SAY STUFF IN THE NEWS THAT IS NOT TRUE. AND I KNOW WHAT THEY ARE SAYING HERE IS NOT TRUE. I KNOW 4 OF THE PEOPLE THAT WERE IN THE ACCIDENT. GO GET A LIFE AND STOP JUDGING OTHERS. YOU ARE NOT GOD AND HAVE NO RIGHT TO JUDGE ANYONE, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU DONT KNOW THE FACTS.

I think if you weren't there then you shouldn't really make comments. Only the 6 people involved truely know what happened and everything.

"I think if you weren't there then you shouldn't really make comments. Only the 6 people involved truely [sic] know what happened and everything."

Doesn't that kind of go against freedom of speech and the ability of people to comment on comment boards?

Drinking and driving is an issue that weighs heavily on many people�s hearts, as it should. It�s an emotional subject, often met with anger. While I believe we should have to suffer the consequences of our actions, I also believe people make mistakes. Mistakes can have detrimental consequences that may cost someone their life. It�s not fair, but in this specific instance and by the grace of God the victims of this crash will all be okay. I�m going to go out on a limb and suggest that the six people involved probably learned their lesson, it�s the lesson we should all learn. Don�t drink and drive, and don�t ride with someone who has been drinking. Hold your friends and family accountable before the mistake is made, a DUI is an unnecessary occurrence and certainly nothing could be so important that driving is worth our lives. I wasn�t there, I wont condemn them, so rather than attacking the people involved, I think it better serves the public for everyone to appreciate a close call, learn from their mistake, share their stories in hopes that it may detour someone else from making this mistake. These are good people who made a poor choice and I for one hope each will make a full recovery. I�d be willing to bet this was a mistake none of them will make twice.

What do you think would happen.

Come on folks, look at the names.

How many can they put in a car? You see it at Wallmart and Winco every day!!!!

Surprised there is booze on board? Come on now...

Its their culture.

To bad we fit the bill not only for their food stamps, but also the medical bills cause you all know they dont have any sort of medical insurance.

DEPORT NOW

Ellik925

Wow thank you for clouding such an important issue with your ignorance. This could happen just as easily happen to a white person. At least one of these victims actually serves the country from which you'd like to deport. Not the issue or relevant.

DM

Yeah, Summer Marie Rosenthal, gotta be from south of the border. While a huge proponent of immigration control it's idiotic statements like yours (PrimeTime) that sets the discussion and possible solution back.

lil-mini

First of al we all make mistakes!! Why make this about racial comments about the border. I give a darn if they need to be deported ,You guys always talk about MEXICANS, you eat Mexican Food , Date Mexican People And you want to vacation there! Now days Americans take advantage on Mediacal Fraud FoodStamp Fraud And welfare Fraud. So quit Descriminating and quit your bitching and saying its your money !!!. Four of those people were my Familia. Im thankful they are alive !!! Im not saying its wrong, but if it your family member would yu be talking. EVERYBODY MAKES MISTAKES, AND GOD IS THE ONLY ONE TO JUDGE. PEACE !!!!

lil-mini

HEY PRIME TIME YOU SAY YOU SEE IT AT WALMART AND WINCO EVERYDAY, BUT I ALSO SEE WHITE TRASH REDNECKS DOING IT!!! WHAT IS YOUR CULTURE ..

Grad12

Exactly like lil Mini said. I'm not trying to say you can't say what you want to but people make mistakes and everything.
I know 5 of them and so hearing shit being said makes me mad.

lil-mini

Thanks Grad 12 Now days people hide behind the computer.. Don"t have the huevos to say it in person.!!!

youdontknowme

if you dont know the people dont judge them. it didnt say the driver was drunk did it? no he had been drinking yes... but that is still legal to a point. he wasnt drunk. he didnt crash cuz of that... if you dont have the whole story dont go around talking smack about locking him up. just going off what the news says is stupid and ignorant. there is way more to the story. i know, ive been told it, the news leaves out everything they find unimportant or boring. if it was you in the news and they held back all the other information youd be pissed too. but since its not you feel the need to go around throwing comments about something that you really arent completely informed about. so next time, in order to keep yourself from looking ignorant to everyone.... wait to hear all of the story before you start talking smack.

youdontknowme,

What is "all of the story"? I would be interested in hearing what was left out.

Ubiquitous Truth

Prime Time- Oh how your small town mentality and ignorance shine. Your judgments, although some of them true...are racially biased words sputtered mindlessly and many lacking competent knowledge. This is an inherent characteristic of most who frequent the vendor locations you speak of. "Just sayin..."
On the other hand, unfortunately drinking is an/the issue no matter what culture. It's bad judgement to be in a vehicle with any alcohol consumption or intoxicants in general. Knowing most of the people involved (related), they are young, they have made bad choices, hopefully they all got a reality check, and WILL NOT TAKE THEIR REMAINING DAYS FOR GRANTED .
