    I lost my teacher to a drunk driver.

    He was telling the class one Friday about how he was picking up his harley one Friday. That same naught I was all over the news how this drunk driving a truck with furniture hit him. I saw pictures if his skull crushed. He had a kind face until that day

    My friend was the drunk driver himself.

    Of course he wasn't buckled. His car rolled, he flew through wind-shield, hit a tree, then his car collided where his presumably already deceased body was.
