(Denver Post)   Three women with three un-belted toddlers in an SUV thought it would be fun to do some drinking and off road 'mud-bogging' at 70 mph. What could possibly go wrong?   (denverpost.com) divider line 146

Steezy: at most she'll get a year in jail, will get over the death of her kid by the time I'm done posting this, and will soon be free to have more offspring.

You forgot to mention suing the SUV manufacturer, the dump truck driver, every surviving passenger, the families of the dead ones, the two trees, and the gas station where she last filled up.

RashGordon18: Tucci meet Rhotsky. Rhotsky, this is Tucci. I think ya'll enjoy each others company.

did you just do a Rotsky or a Tucci there?

Pull a Tucci, heh.... That's what you get for trying to be FP.

In all fairness, Tucci handled it like a man, bowed his/her head in shame, didn't say a word, accepted it, and posted an apology pic to boot.

I find that honorable and admirable, and forgive him/her. Life goes on (I might be able to recommend a new years resolution though).

You can't sue trees. You have to sue the tree-huggers that kept them from being chopped down. Can't hit 'em if they ain't there.

shiat, we had two women stoned silly with a free roaming toddler in the backseat. Of course, crash ensues. Toddler survives, but has serious brain damage. Both women get misdemeanors and NO JAIL TIME.

I did correct myself right after I wrote that.

Sounds like something that would happen in West Virginia, except, it wouldn't be an SUV, it would be a Truck.

In an interesting additional detail, the drivers of the dump truck were the baby daddies:


www.ajc.com/metro/content/metro/stories/2007/12/29/muddeaths_1230.html


Apparently, after helping their wives out of the first ditch they'd run into, the men mired their dump truck in the same ditch. The women, cackling gleefully, offered not to help their mates, and instead sped off at 70 mph, crashing almost immediately into the tree (it couldn't have been immediate, you know, because they need a few seconds to get up to that rate of speed).

Good times. Died doing what they loved.

Endzone108: These weren't high class espresso drinking chicks, they are from Griffin, the skidmark in the tighty whities of Georgia.

That last line is close to the "four horsemen of the domestic dispute" beauty from earlier this year.

Benjimin_Dover: davezog: Not to defend this person in any way, but why would she be going to jail for being a passenger in a car accident? Not fastening her child's seatbelt? Is that her fault, or the fault of the driver? Serious question...


In NYS, the answer would be both.

1. The driver is responsible for ensuring that the minors required by law to be belted are belted or they receive the citation. Adults that are required by law to be belted are responsible for themselves and receive the citation directly.


I am wondering if the child perhaps *was* wearing a seat belt, if he got out with just scratches.

From the article: "None of the victims was wearing a seat belt ..."

So the survivors might have been belted in.

Since when?

And did it have a lift kit on it? This is why you never let a 24 yr old girl drive your mud boggin' rig.

Guffey's four-year-old son, Brody, sustained minor injuries in the Friday night accident and was later released from Sylvan Grove Hospital in nearby Jackson.

Another passenger, Tammy Flick-the mother of Zoe-remains in stable condition at Atlanta Medical Center with a broken leg.



Thanks to the miracles of stem cell research and other advancements in technology Brody and Tammy Flick will be able to make Jethros and Ellie Mays and other "mud-bogging" commandos.

Just stay away from Brody's junk

There was an article on Britney Spears losing her kids. Rotski decided to "correct" a non-existent typo in the headline. About a hundred posts pointing out what a dumbass Rotski is ensued. He handled it way less gracefully than how Tucci did.

So now it's a term for fixing a grammar error that doesn't exist to begin with.

Personally, I think the survivors should be tried for second degree murder.

Okay, the 4-year-old who lived probably shouldn't be charged.

theorellior: Is it typical to go 70 mph while "mud-bogging"? I always thought off-roading was a high-torque, low-speed pursuit. But I drive a hybrid, so what do I know?

I've been mud bogging, but we certainly didn't go anywhere near 70 mph. Of course that was on an ATV & I'm not sure what the top speed on one of those is.

Well, the only surviving passenger, besides the adult woman, is a 4 year old boy. I guess you could try suing him, but I don't know what for.
