Apparently get run over by somebody backing out of the driveway:
Police are citing alcohol consumption as a factor in a tragedy in which a woman allegedly killed her sister-in-law and injured two other family members by driving over them while they slept on the ground outside her home.
RCMP said several people were at the home in Berens River at the time of the incident Saturday afternoon, and they had been drinking.
A concerned reserve resident, who did not want to give her name, said the family had been drinking together at the house and the mother, the father and daughter passed out in the front yard.
“It was 4:30 and it was a sunny day. You do crazy things when you’re drinking and they passed out on the ground,” the resident said.
They are passed out drunk on the driveway at 4:30 in the afternoon? That’s some serious drinking. And the police state that “alcohol consumption is a factor? Knock me over with a feather. And yes – this is on a “Native Reserve” which is the Canadian version of an Indian Reservation. So drinking and “sleeping” (what a nice way to say passed out) all day apparently are what happens.
And just how drunk does the driver have to be to run over not 1, not 2, but 3 people before figuring out those speed bumps in the driveway are people?
