A man has plead guilty to killing four motorcyclists in a drunk-driving accident that happened six months ago. The man was over the legal drinking limit by four times, when he veered into traffic in the lane next to him. He hit four friends who were all riding their motrocycles together. All four motorcyclists suffered severe injuries and died shortly after.
While in court, the man showed sincere remorse and brought everyone to tears while recounting his shame and guilt for taking away four lives. Although he has not yet been sentenced, he accepted a plea bargain, which may lower his sentence from 100 years in prison to 50. The families of the four motorcyclists have also filed civil lawsuits against the driver, but they have not yet gone to court.
Our thoughts are with all those involved in this horrible tragedy.
