Sad but preventable. Officers say the driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and faces charges that include gross vehicular manslaughter.

At 3:15 in the morning? Seriously? Bet the famous last words went something like this “Hold my beer and check this shit out”
