Crash details

It'll take a few weeks to conclusively determine whether alcohol was involved in yesterday morning's crash, but I'll be flattened if it ain't. Drunk or not, if you flip your car, and if some or all of your passengers aren't wearing seat belts, you're doing it wrong. The deceased, Charles Amaro, is an '06 RB grad. The driver is '07 RB grad and running back Richard Caldwell. According to the papers, the girls in the car with them are current RB students. However, that neighborhood is deep in Poway's attendance area, so whoever they were hanging out with before the crash is probably one/some of our people.

(There was a rumor going around our baseball game last night that the driver deceased was already facing a fatality DUI charge from an earlier crash, but I can't find anything online to corroborate that. [Edit 4/14/08 8:20am] Rumor corrected and confirmed: The deceased in this case was the cause of the first crash. He grabbed the wheel and caused the car to flip.)

Either way, not a lot of sympathy here. I was annoyed last night to hear our lacrosse announcer call for a moment of silence before their game started over in the football stadium. If you get behind the wheel drunk, you're an ass. If you get in the car with such a driver, you're an ass. If you drive down that road (and it's a wide road with clear visibility) fast enough, and badly enough, even sober, to flip your car, you're an ass.

[Edit 6:15pm: I'm making exceptions to my usual policy of not unscreening unsigned anonymous comments. Why? Because I feel like abusing ignorant fucks. Because their willful ignorance begets more of the same. Someone ought to beat some sense into them, so why should I pass up the opportunity if they present it? :-) ]
