Sad story emerging from Saturday night when Jose Durante, youth pastor at New Hope Covenant Church was struck by another vehicle while helping a stranded motorist move his car.
That the driver who struck him was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and driving under the influence of drugs makes this all the more tragic. Someone has said that if alcohol were a new substance that was ‘discovered’ today it would be placed in the same category as heroin. Yet another has said that if alcohol were being introduced today it would never be approved for purchase.
I say that only because it seems like every story I’ve heard in the past 48 hours involving some kind of accident or injury involved some use of alcohol. Why do people think once they’ve had a few drinks they are fit to drive.
