    Nancy G covered this story tonight. The drunken piece of crap hit the victim, who btw was driving a motorcycle. Now the drunk fool surely knew he hit something. The car was a mangled mess but somehow was still drivable. The drunk driver drove home.....with the victim hanging out of the rear window.

    dingo,
    That's the question LE and Nancy G asked. Seems the guy was so drunk he didn't notice. I'll try to find a link to a picture of the car.

    It's called a blackout and it happens alot - especially if the drunk driver was an alcoholic.

    I know a person here in Atlanta who was driving home with his best friend one night - they were both drunk. His best friend hung out the window and was decapitated by something. The guy I know drove all the way home, parked the car with his decapitated best friend sitting beside him and went inside and passed out. Found his friend the next day and didn't remember a thing.

    It was tragic and traumatic.

    Drunken driver blamed for headless corpse

    Updated: 11:00 a.m. ET Aug 30, 2004

    MARIETTA, Ga. - A drunken driver hit a telephone pole support wire that decapitated his passenger, then drove 12 miles home and slept in his bloody clothes, leaving the headless body in his truck, police said.
    A neighbor walking with his young daughter Sunday morning discovered Daniel Brohm’s headless corpse in the truck in John Kemper Hutcherson’s driveway and called authorities, said Cpl. Dana Pierce, county police spokesman.
    Officers found Hutcherson asleep inside his home, his clothes bloody and visibly drunk, and later found Brohm’s severed head at the crash site.

    Hi dark_shadows,

    Thank you for finding that link. I live in Marietta and I met John after this happened. He and Daniel had been friends since childhood - both families were just devastated, as you can imagine.

    Lots of alcoholics experience blackouts, even when driving. It is terrifying to consider.

    From January 2009:

    http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/...ced-to-prison/

    A drunken driver who left the scene of a traffic collision with the body of a young man lodged in his car's rear window was sentenced by a judge Thursday morning to 15 years in prison.

    The sentence for Tony Martinez, 55, of Meadowbrook, was the maximum penalty allowed by state law, a measure of solace for the friends and family of Nicholas Campbell...

    Late last year, a jury convicted Martinez of vehicular manslaughter, driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident.
