This driver, if still alive, should be killed. Or something.

Except that nobody knows who it is, and it's only alleged that they were drunk.  Breathalyzer isn't going to do you much good, 40 years after the fact.

While we can't be taking the blame for ALL stupid accidents, personally I wouldn't be surprised one bit if it was.

Well, that explains everything wrong in north Africa, doesn't it?

I imagine things went like this back in the day:

"Alright, you're going to head east and then take a left at the tree."
"Which tree?"
"You'll know when you see it."

And sober pedestrian pushes over big rock and kills the scenery.

/Thats assuming that a t-bagger boyscout leader is considered sober while insane.

//Old news and lets chop down a few trees to make a campfire and burn down the forest for shiats and giggles.

Ugh, after the fact they'll be going "Left at where the tree USED to be".

I was gonna say, those care look pretty advanced for 1895.

and where nothing like it will likely ever stand again.

A little over there top there buddy? In a mere 300 years the area went from grove to desert, but now NOTHING will grow there again.

Alright, drunk or not, how do you hit the one farking obstacle in the desert? This person had to have been to the point where he just thought "Look at this farking tree. Who the fark does it think it is? What? Just going to grow in the desert, all willy-nilly and shiat? I can't even get a rise in the morning and this farking tree, this fark, thinks it can grow where nothing else does? Well fark that!"
