Driver who killed teen posts his totaled car online with smiley face

Driver who killed teen posts his totaled car online with smiley face | Atlanta Trial Attorney Safety On the Road News; | Scoop.it
A 16-year-old Brooklyn Center boy clung to life for days before dying after a suspected drunken driver, without a valid license, fled one crash on a north-metro highway and ran into the teen’s car down the road moments later, authorities said

Jeffrey Lapin's curator insight, August 1, 11:36 AM

Minnesota man, after causing a fatal crash, makes horrible posts on Facebook.

 

The man, who was on probation, was allegedly drunk and driving on revoked license, gets into one crash, and while fleeing that one, causes another one with a vehicle driven by a 16-year-old driver. The boy died a couple of days the crash.

 

After the crashes, but before the boy died, the man posts photos of what was left of his vehicle with these messages:

 

"That’s her front end after I got done with her lol.” He signed that message with a smiley face.

 

“I’m all good slept a day in the hospital then came home and did yard work lol."

 

The man admitted to posting the images and comments, which have since been deleted.

 

This man's level of callousness is atrocious. Besides allegedly driving while intoxicated and a revoked license, his Facebook posts make it seem very likely he is going to get any sympathy from the police, prosecutor or jury, if the case goes to trial, or sentencing judge.

Steven M. Sweat's curator insight, June 23, 10:08 AM

It is a shame that cities are resorting to "flag waving" by pedestrians to prevent accidents at intersections.  This is an interesting experiment, though, into increased visibility and its relationship to reduction of mishaps between motor vehicles and persons traveling on foot.
