I will never forget the day that man took away a great friend of mine and almost took my best friends daughter, she died on the operating table Sabrina fought for her life because a man had no patience! And was justice served NO! this man has been allowed to walk free from this! My best friend lost her sister almost lost her daughter because of the time she took off from work her whole world has been trying to pick up the pieces, financially, emotionally to know that man had been drinking ran from the law and has no remorse for what he did! I pray for them everyday! Although Sabrina has recovered but she will always have a reminder of what she endured when she looks at her scars on the back of her neck! She was almost decapitated! Her aunt saved her life by taken the impact. I hope someone hears me and prays peace and Justice be served for my other family! Thank you
