Who has their 11 and 12 year old sons out pushing a truck at 11 p.m.? Really weird that the wife, daughter and infant son where still in the truck if the house was only 50 yards away. Don't you put the kids inside the house and then push the truck yourself while your wife steers?
We don't know if the driver was drunk. Story says it was BELIEVED that he had been drinking, but not report yet on whether he was legally impaired.
Were their any lights on the vehicle that was hit? I could see a scenario where the people pushing the truck are blocking the reflectors and a car not seeing them until too late.
All that being said, if the driver comes back drunk, I wouldn't shed a tear for him.
