Another Drunk Driver off the road!

About 2:30 this morning, I was awakened with a very uneasy feeling. I thought that it was just the urge to go to the bathroom. So back to bed it was, uneasy feeling still there, trying to go back to sleep. Getting more and more frustrated, I just got up about 4:00, made coffee, and went out and sat on the porch.  I am sitting there with my solitude, sipping hot coffee, suddenly bright lights show up on the road, and they aren't moving any where. My house is about 250 ft off the FM road that runs next to my little 4 acre yard, so off I go being nosy about who is out there. I don't get visitors at 4:30 in the morning. I walk out past the end of the house and see 2 Sheriffs cars, red and blues flashing. Speeder ? A few moments later the Aubrey Fire Dept and EMS showed up, Whats Up?  I am sitting out in my north field watching, I might be Curious Cat. What happened?
 About 2 hours later, still dark outside, the EMS brings someone up the side of the road, in a bag on the gurney. The DPS is here now and they look at the drivers ID, and I overheard the comment," DWI", and he asked, " did he have any prior arrests or convictions for DWI" ?
 Sometime around 2:30 this driver ran off the road and flipped his car. He was crushed by the roof of his car, requiring the jaws of life to get his body free. He was discovered by someone driving by that took the time to call 911. It is not known how long he lived after the crash, what a crappy end to his life, so many questions, luckily he was alone. Around 6:45 the tow truck showed up, quickly picking up the terribly mangled wreck while the DPS videoed the entire affair. All the players in this play left about 7am, all flashing lights were off.

As you well know, San Antonio is the DUI capital of the world. I feel the same as you.
