Newsday's headlines did all they could to convict the driver of the pickup truck for DWI. Really, it's the limo driver who should also be scrutinized.
The limo driver may have been distracted with all the noise and conversations with so many people in one vehicle. When he made the U-turn, he should have been very alert and looking all around.
Why is there a fad for stretch limos? They're a hazard to drive. Stop this nonsense and use as many smaller cars as are necessary. What are they stretching, anyway? A dollar?
Both drivers took too much for granted. When you drive, you play with death at the wheel.
