    Speaking of WRAL needing to keep up .... anyone remember the daughter of the Vance County Sheriff's daughter who was "blistered" and driving the wrong way?

    Last WRAL reported, the SBI was investigating. Now that it is not current events day, WRAL seem's to have lost interest:

    Who wants to bet he is already out of jail and out on the road driving again? It seems you have to really mess up and kill a few people before they really do anything about drunk drivers in this state. Even then, there is no guarantee we will not have to worry about the likes of this one again.

    He looks so concerned on the mug shot and today, I bet ya, he will be very sorry he ever touched that car.

    We need public humiliation as a form of punishment. It would help with overcrowding and not subject these types of criminals to hardened, violent criminals. Maybe 50 lashes outside the courthouse and a billboard for 3 months with his picture and details of the crime.


    Was those last few drinks worth it......If one wants to load up on adult beverages, why not just stay home and do so.. It is so much cheaper and does not put others in your danger.

    1. Bar Drink........4.00 to 10.00 each
    2. Bar Beer.........3.50 to 6.50 usually
    3. DUI Ticket.......Lost of License and possibly LIFE
    4. Jail Time........Lost of idenity and labled for life

    Case of beer on average....15.00 unless on sale
    No one else is at risk unless you are violent to others in home

    Can you spell S-t-u-p-i-d Fellow....

    Joe - I work on S Glenwood and generally everday there are big eighteen wheelers blocking the road of travel, forcing you to go into the wrong side of the road.It "drives" me nuts.

    OK so I'm a little confused...
    The story says that Davidson is charged with "serious injury by vehicle".
    The story also says that Davidson is the only one injured.
    So...Is he being charged for injuring himself?

    I saw this crash at 3am. It was nasty. One car had the entire drivers side of the vehicle ripped off. Bad stuff...
