Video: The drunk-driving crash

Sheriff’s Deputy Marshall Doyle was following a truck on Minnesota Highway 67 near the intersection of Yellow Medicine County Road 8 in September when this happened.

You’ll probably want to sit down for this one: The driver who blew through the stop sign was drunk, the Department of Public Safety said when it released the video this afternoon.

He pleaded guilty to DWI.

One of the things I taught my kids when teaching them to drive was that stop signs and red lights don’t stop cars, especially in a state that loves its booze the way this one does.
