This really takes the cake!
A guy in Norfolk, Virginia just got found NOT GUILTY because he said that his passengers distracted him. His BAC was 0.10, he survived while the
majority of his passengers didn't.
Here's the article: hamptonroads.com...
There are many angles to the story, so be sure to read it to the end. Much of it doesn't add up and stories are conflicting. I guess it's been
determined though that he was going 80mph and the crash happened as he was rounding a curve.
And then there's this (Kok was a female passenger killed in the crash):
During the trip north on Granby Street, the backseat passengers acted up and just over the Granby Street bridge, something struck him sharp in the
jaw, he testified. He blacked out, he testified.
A paramedic at the scene testified that he found Kok without her pants on the median.
Under cross-examination, he said the pants may have been removed by witnesses to pull her from the mangled, burning car.
Sacks argued to the jury on Monday that a pair of pants thrown around the back seat may have played a role in the crash. "There is reasonable doubt
about what happened in that car," Sacks told jurors.
In my opinion, I bet he was distracted, but he still should've been responsible and not gotten behind the wheel; his speeding while intoxicated
speaks volumes about his level of maturity. One can only guess what was happening in the back seat of his car. The woman found dead without any pants
on cannot tell her side of the story. Very sad indeed. May the victims of this terrible and unnecessary accident rest in peace and may their loved
ones also find peace.
In my opinion, I hope this man is forever jolted awake by nightmares of this accident for the remainder of his life.
