    So much fake news these days, but unfortunately this is real. I had confidence DV8 would find confirmation. The friend who was the driver has been arrested.

    Mix alcohol, vacation and carelessness and this is the result. In the US if you are driving while impaired and death results it is negligent homicide and you are done.

    In the DR, tourists, who knows? Maybe the driver will be just asked to leave if she has the funds to arrange a buy out.

    They are both responsible, but only one left alive to be punished.

    I suspect "fake news"...


    OK, the one on YouTube has an extra couple of seconds which means it could be genuine.

    Any confirmation on real news sites?

    I was able to see a frame in the video which shows a power pole, so it does like like it really happened.
    I originally el arne about it from a WhatsApp group, there was a full uncensored video, plus link to a article
    https://muelanews.com/muere-una-muje...to-punta-cana/

    The report was also on NCDN Canal 37, though the video they paled was censured. The UK article video, for some reason, is cut in half.

    Sometimes, an event like this is the only cure for "stupid"...it's unfortunate, but true. Some people say you can't cure stupid, but in this case it certainly brought it to a halt. She probably broke her neck with the accident and thus died from respiratory arrest and brain damage.

    Sadly the herd continues to thin itself.

    I love the way these stories are gradually full of every detail ...almost an obsession.. and with endless incidents
