Drunken Crash in Downtown Billings Wednesday
This crash literally happened right outside my building. This means that me or one of my coworkers could have been driving on that road when he was. NOT COOL. At 29-years-old I would think that people know that driving drunk is not okay. As the article states there were five other people in the car. Can you imagine if 10 days before the holiday a car with six people in it died because someone thought they could drive impaired?? This stuff pisses me off more than anything else in the world. Idiot people making idiot decisions that luckily, this time, didn't cause hurt or damage to someone innocent. End rant.
