    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. He was visibly drunk and his clothes were bloody, authorities said. They later found Brohm's severed head at the crash site.
    "It's hard for one to imagine that you would drive miles from a crash site to your home, turning in various directions, and yet not know what has happened to a passenger sitting next to you," Pierce said.
    Hutcherson, 21, was charged with vehicular homicide, driving under the influence and failure to stop at an accident with death or injury. He was jailed on a $100,000 bond; it was unclear Monday whether he had an attorney.
    Police said Hutcherson and Brohm - friends since high school - were drinking at a bar Saturday night and left after Brohm said he felt sick.
    Brohm, 23, apparently was leaning out of the window when Hutcherson hit the support wire about a mile and a half from the bar.

    Reminds me of that lady who had the guy stuck in her windshield for three days in her garage until he finally died.

    I remember that one too.:( I was shocked that the person would have lived but she let him suffer until he died. I could never figure out why she didn't help him, or what sentence she finally recieved. ???

    Its about time to make a law that people such as this young man can't operate a motor vehicle after having anything to drink. Their car should be fitted with a blood alcohol detector. And the law should stipulate that if they're caught driving after drinking again, they would face severe penalties.

    This reminds me of a case in CO. where a man who had 6 prior drunk driving convictions ran into a car and killed 1 or both occupants after a session of heavy drinking. He was 39 and had probably been doing that for close to 20 years, and had even served jail time. He got a long sentence, but will someday get out and may not be prevented from driving again.
