    I remember a time while coming from our temple(Aba Nigeria)I look behind through the window to see what is happening. Before I new, the bus conductor open the door and it hits the side of my eye with blood flowing. From this experience, I learn to be sensitive and careful with things that might injure life.
    May the power of the Atonement cover the families

    No excuse for this guy to be on the road while intoxicated. I'm so glad for my belief - families are forever although painful but the eternities is nearby. My deepest condolences to the family of this horrific event.

    My cousin and his 11 month old son were killed by a drunk driver July 4, 1978. His wife survived, but woke up in ICU weeks later. *sad*
    Drunk drivers have been creating havoc for a long time.

    And, sadly, this will be the similar event that way too many future events will remind us of -- primarily because legislators don't have the guts and integrity to implement effective, commonsense updates to Utah's useless, ineffective dram shop law.

    Until the "hospitality" industry is properly incentivized to come up with real, effective solutions to the highway deaths they cause, we will continue to be reminded, over and over again, of way too many wonderful, innocent lives being laid on the altar of obscene profits of the alcohol brewers, distillers, and distributors.

    They are the "pushers" whose profits drive the bloody carnage they knowingly promote, enable, and, ultimately, create. And, in the end, only their greed can be relied upon to remain vigilant 24/7/365 against dangers they profit so handsomely from creating.

    This reminds me of a similar event years ago that took my uncle, my cousin and her husband and baby and nearly took my aunt. She survived, eventually remarried, but that accident, too, was horrific. It was caused by a drunk driver in a pick-up. I saw the wreckage later and it was a miracle that my aunt lived. The driver did not. His justice came in the hereafter. These kind of incidents are so senseless and so avoidable. My heart goes out to this family, especially the surviving father.

    Such a sad, sad ending of precious lives because of a drunk driver. What a beautiful mother and daughters! My heart goes out to the victims' family. We hope and pray that Mr. Adame-Orozco makes a full recovery and those around him will embrace him with love and support for a long while.
