Default Don't Drink and Drive!

Yesterday was one of the worst days of my life. I found out one of my good friends was killed in a horrible car accident. I have known him since we were like 8 years old, he grew up in the same platt as me. The pole he hit is less than a half mile fom my fathers house, and I pass it everytime I go there. There are two skid marks that head directly into the pole. The car flipped into a nearby construction site. The accident happened at around midnight after getting in an arguement with his girlfriend, and leaving the bar. He was dead on impact, and his girlfriend is in serious condition, and lost a leg in the accident.

Quote:
Accident specialists are trying to piece together exactly what killed the man and what he and the woman were doing when the accident happened. They said the accident tore the vehicle in half.

Police said officers in Miami Township received calls and drove to the accident scene, where they found evidence of a deadly collision. They said a car had struck an electrical pole, causing the car to break apart.

Officers said they have no doubt that whoever was in the car was speeding. Sgt. Scott Fitzgerald said, ?Looks like the car may have been in mid-air when it struck the pole.?

Investigators said the impact killed the man they believe may have been driving. Medics arrived and rushed a woman to a local hospital with serious injuries.

Accident specialists said they found all kinds of signs of the violent impact. They said the car?s exhaust was in a ditch dozens of feet away and a sun visor from the car was imbedded into the electrical pole.

Investigators think the car slid off the right side of the road, the driver overcorrected and skidded all the way across the road into the pole.
He was a great guy!....one of the coolest guys you would ever meet. I can't beleive he is gone, and I am gonna miss him. I can't help but to feel sorry for all the people that would have met him in the future....They would have liked him a lot.

Im so sorry for your loss. I can definitely sympathize. One of my best guy friends, like a big brother to me, died b/c of a drunk driver 3 years ago in November, and I still think about him all the time. He was 29 when it happened, and had a lot going for him and a whole life in front of him. What makes it even worse, is the loser who caused it, lived with barely anything wrong with him, and got away with it in court, w/ punishment for nothing more than the DUI. Thats the law for you, here in TN! Anyway, theres really no easy way through it, but keeping the memory alive helps a little.

Thanks Amanda, sorry I forgot about you....

Did you see this on the news? It happened Monday night on Washinton Church road, and was all over the news the next couple days.

Seriously, have you guys ever seen a car completely ripped in half in an accident?....WTF!
