It's gut wrenching to read this. A mother of three kids, Angela Buyas, was run over and killed by a 21-year old driver late Tuesday night on SE Stark in Portland. She was walking. On the sidewalk.
According to news reports, the driver, lost control of his vehicle due to speed and intoxication. That's fairly sanitized. So a speeding drunken driver decimated a family. It's another tragic driving under the influence story. This one is even more poignant because the children earlier lost their father, and are now orphaned.
The takeaway from this horror is that alcohol + driving = disaster.
