"Alyza Russell lost control of her 2012 Porsche on the night of June 12th, screeching through an intersection, crashing through tall shrubs, and running through a parking lot. She struck two homeless men sleeping there, killing them both. It is unclear if she deliberately tried to flee the scene of the crime, according to grisly accounts of the scene. One man described the events to Local 10 News as "something out of a movie."
So let me get this straight, a privelaged 22 year old girl got ridiculously wasted, got behind the wheel of her 2012 Porsche Panamera, and drove into a parking lot island filled with homeless men. When she realized what she had done, she allegedly attempted to flee the scene but was incapable due to the homeless human being wrapped around her front wheel well.
According to Local10 News, she told a co-worker that she was going to flee the country to Ireland, as her family had been planning a vacation since before the crash.
"I thought it was a clump of dirt under the car, but it was who we call Slim," said Randy Trammell. "She went over here and stopped and then she started peeling out, it looked like. She was smoking her tires but she couldn't go anywhere because one guy was locked in the wheel."
What really grinds my gears is that they let her go before receiving the results of the blood test. Had that been someone like me, or even the same girl with a beat up Honda Civic, I doubt they would have let her go home. Money means everything folks. I'm interested to see the outcome of this case. The way it's going looks like she'll be doing 15 years minimum.
Don't drink and drive people, just don't. That could be you going to jail for a large portion of your life. NO, THANKS.
