Amy Pike: Some points about that Horse Cave fatal
Comments re article 81995 Randy Young Alcohol brought tragedy to Horse Cave
By Amy Pike
While any fatal accident is certainly a tragedy and something not to be made light of for any reason, you cannot say with certainty that is what caused this accident. Alcohol is believed to be a factor; however, until the blood results come back there is no certainty in that.
Also, the rider was not wearing a helmet (allowed by Ky law) and that could also be a factor. There was also a fatal accident in Ohio county involving a motorcycle that same weekend due the operator striking a deer and also not wearing a helmet.
Should we kill all deer to avoid this?
DUI accidents are going to occur whether it is legal or not - we all know that some people are not responsible drinkers.
I don't think anyone is naive enough to believe that if you can't legally purchase alcohol then there will be no more fatalities.
Meth, Cocaine, Heroin are all illegal, but it has not stopped those who chose that path from using it or driving under the influence of it.
There are more DUI's now from prescription medication and illegal drugs than alcohol, ask anyone in Emergency Services what they see more of. - Amy Pike
