My prayers r with u all in this time of dispare. This is truely a tragic moment for all. Nobody should be driving a vehicle under the influece of alchohol. The pain and suffering alyssa is going thru is more than i could even imagine. Along with the rest of the family. I hope the driver gets what he deserves in his day at court. And has alot of time to think about his decision to drive impaired that night in jail. God Bless u all.
