    PEOPLE ARE SPEAKING ABOUT THE DRIVER WITHOUT HAVING ANY KNOWLEDGE AS TO THE EVENTS OR ABOUT THE CHARACTER OF THE YOUNG MAN DRIVING. IT IS A HORRIBLE UNFORTUNATE ACCIDENT THAT ALL INVOLVED WILL SUFFER AND WHOM HAVE FAMILIES THAT WILL SUFFER. THERE WAS NO MALICIOUS INTENT AND IS NOT WHAT PEOPLE BELIEVE FROM MEDIA REPORTS. ANYONE WISHING TO JUDGE AND MAKE COMMENTS SHOULD WAIT UNTIL FURTHER DETAILS SURFACE. THIS COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO ANYONE HAVING KIDS OR LOVED ONES SO WHILE PRAYERS SHOULD GO OUT TO THE POOR ELDERLY MAN WHO LOST HIS LIFE BECAUSE OF THIS ACCIDENT THE PUBLIC SHOULD REFRAIN FROM COMMITTING TO ANY JUDGMENTS UNTIL EVERYTHING IS PRESENTED AS I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT THERE ARE SUBSTANTIAL DETAILS THAT WHEN COME TO LIGHT WILL REVEAL MORE TO THIS AND CHANGE THE OPINIONS OF SOME PEOPLE OUT HERE ALREADY CONVICTING THE YOUNG DRIVER. I AM NOT SAYING NO CULPABILITY IS DESERVING BUT THE YOUNG MAN WAS NOT INTOXICATED REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE APPEARANCE AND LAW ENFORCEMENT WISH THE PUBLIC TO BELIEVE.
