A road no one should take

Both as a medical professional and someone who occasionally bikes on River Road, this story made my heart hurt.

The short version was a father and son were bicycling along River Road in the bike lane when a man, high on cocaine and drunk, crashed into them and killed them.

I can’t even imagine what that family is going through.  It’s so sad, so senseless.  This has happened before – all the biking fatalities have been linked to impaired drivers.

Why is it so hard for people not to drive if they are intoxicated?
