Drunk driver escapes from UW Hospital

Postby Beaver » Wed May 11, 2011 11:15 am

His wheelchair was found on Hancock St downtown. I presume he has little cash and is badly injured. Sounds like he would be easy to catch. Buy maybe he will call someone to get a ride out of town.

Ya know, I'm not condoning this guy's drunk driving offenses in any manner, but you have to admire his determination and probably his pain tolerance. In another context, he might very much be somebody you'd want to have on your side.

Uh no, you don't. The guy killed two people; he's a scumball.

Fortunately, he's been caught again and if there's any justice, he'll be in jail for a good long time:

In addition to the two people who were killed (a young man and his grandmother who were out delivering newspapers before dawn) his own passenger was critically injured so he's got three victims.

Make that four: he's ruined his own life too.
