Well, what do you know, it’s Friday! You know what that means . . . hold onto your sanity . . . the count this week is:

  • Birds – 2
  • Squirrels – 2
  • Mouse – 1

There you go. Let me see, any bipedal roadkill this week?

Dammit, WordPress just dumped me, and all my text, now I have to re-do it all.  I know one reason why I do this less and less often. It is frustrating and annoying.

Anywhoo  . . .

“As a Seattle car accident lawyer I hear of auto accidents caused by intoxicated driving. Monday morning a Seattle auto accident caused a Washington wrongful death on Interstate 5. Investigators now say the driver responsible for the car accident had been drinking prior to the incident.

At about 2:30 a.m., a pickup truck was driving in the southbound lane of I-5 when he steered off the road and hit another truck that was parked on the side of the road.

Tragically, the passenger of the pickup truck died at the scene of the crash. The driver was immediately taken to Providence Colby Hospital.

Two of the southbound lanes of the freeway had to be shut down for a few hours, while officials inspected the scene.

Investigators found empty beer containers inside the truck, which suggest the driver was intoxicated when the auto accident occurred. When he recovers, he will be investigated for vehicular homicide.

According to State Patrol Trooper Keith Leary, this weekend alone there were 60 incidences of intoxicated driving in Washington State. Drunk driving is a major problem in the United States that results in far too many auto accidents and wrongful death accidents each year. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in 2008, there were a total of 11,773 alcohol related traffic fatalities in the United States.

There you go – one tragic roadkill story that didn’t involve a deer, raccoon or someone’s pet. Just people.

Pay attention when driving, and for god’s sake, pull over if you are angry, upset, or sick or the kids are driving you screaming in the back seat. I’ve been there; stopping for 5 minutes won’t make any difference as to when you get where you are going, except maybe that you will actually get there.  A side trip to the hospital will ensure that you do NOT get where you are going on time, if at all.
