Reckless drivers killed their loved ones. Families say such drivers aren't punished enough


During the funeral at the Dar Al-Farooq Islamic Center in Bloomington on Monday, men carried the body of one of the five women killed in a car crash on Lake Street.

They kill and maim with their vehicles.

A drunken driver, who was also high and unlicensed, ran a red light at 75 mph and killed a 24-year-old cancer researcher. He was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison but will likely be out sooner.

An unlicensed motorist so drunk his blood alcohol was nearly three times the legal limit blew through a red light doing 85, killing a 22-year-old man. The motorist had a prior DWI crash. A plea agreement calls for four years in prison for the fatal crash but he'll serve less than 2 1⁄2 if a judge approves the deal.
