More DWI Hijinks

OK.  Abbeville, Louisiana - last weekend (around June 4th).  52-year-old Gregory Menard attempts to pass several vehicles in a curve "clearly marked as a no passing zone."  Menard's vehicle slammed head on into a car driven by 23-year-old Emily Landry of Lafayette.

Menard sustained moderate injuries in the crash, but a passenger in his vehicle, Gregory's brother, 55-year-old Kenneth Menard of Abbeville, was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle.  Kenneth was pronounced dead at the scene.

From The AdvertiserTrooper Stephen Hammons, a public affairs officer for the Louisiana State Police, said in a news release Menard was suspected of being impaired and was placed under arrest for DWI 4th offense, passing in a no-passing zone, vehicular homicide and vehicular negligent injury.

4th offensive DWI.  Hmmm.  I wonder if Gregory Menard had to inform his neighbors of his presence in the neighborhood?
