The authorities are going to be ever so cross with her! I expect Tiffin to be unamused as well.

Holy Smokes! That is going to be a HUGE repair bill. Most people don't carry that amount of insurance. This is definitely going to be UGLY for everyone involved.

I don't know why people have to drive drunk. They need to throw the book at him.

Red Bay is in Franklin County, Alabama, the sale of packaged beer and wine by private vendors is prohibited. Those Rver's bring it with them.

The newspaper link also mentions a domestic argument. I doubt it was worth this outcome.

I saw quite a few "wine walkers" when I was at Tiffin. You know, jaspers who walk around with a glass of wine in hand. I can't decide if the wine is a prop for a sophisticated image or if the people are rummies who get the shakes if they stray too far from the jar.

The following is a partial quote from the news article "Sources say the force of the impact was so severe it dislodged the transmission from the RV that was hit".

I think there is little doubt it will be totaled.
