We had to write a letter to the DMV about my Grandfather-In-Law, years ago. He was witnessed by another relative going up the exit ramp to get on Interstate 79 on the East Coast. Tragedy was avoided, but he never told anyone about the incident afterward. After receipt of our letter, the DMV asked him to come in for a test, rather quickly, and he failed it BIG time, for lots of reasons, one was the medication he was taking. He never drove again, but ended up enjoying another reason to spend time with other people, while they took him where he needed to go. It was a lousy feeling to have to write that letter, but it actually should have been written months before it was. Thank God we don't have to see him in the situation of this man in CA, or the families he hurt so much.

I think this was a horrible horrible tragic accident. However, I don't see what good putting this 87-year old man in prison is going to accomplish. I don't see what the prosecutor is attempting to prove here. Its pretty obvious that the man should not have been driving in the first place.

I agree Jeana. I mean...he is an old man, what good would it do to put him in jail at this point in his life? Like you said, he shouldn't have been driving in the first place.
