    My husband was driving in front of the car that hit this poor man on his birthday and changed lanes as we always do when passing anyone on a bike, be it a kid or adult. He didn’t know that the rider was hit until he came back from picking up our son and was returning home when he saw the emt’s working on the rider and wondered if he would survive this wreck. I am so totally disgusted that people drink and then get behind the wheel. That could have been one of my loved ones or my kid. I wonder how we will ever stop this senseless nonsense!! These people have no regard for anyone but their own selfishness and don’t seem to be able to rehabiltate as witnessed by their numerous convictions for the same thing! I hope they throw the book at the drunken slob that killed this man and damaged this family. Rest in Peace Mr. Scofield.
