Randy Young: Tell these parents about ignorance

Randy Young writes:
At 10:55pmCT on May 14, 1988, Larry Wayne Mahoney, a drunk driver in a pickup truck traveling in wrong direction on a interstate highway in a rural, unincorporated area of Carroll County, Kentucky collided head-on with a gasoline-powered former school bus which was in use as a church bus. The results are 27 deaths and injuries of 34 others. The crash was the deadliest drunk driving incident and third deadliest bus disaster in the U.S. history.

These kids and others were on a trip not drinking and driving but killed by a drunk driver. These kids were being raised right but killed my someone's ignorances. I'm sure you can ask people in Adair County that have lost loved ones by a drunk driver that had no choice was on a trip, town or just out for a trip like these innocence kids. Be careful about using the word ignorance. - Randy Young
