The statistics I just posted about pedestrian deaths rang a little bit truer as I ran across an article in today’s paper about a pedestrian death in Kearney Mesa due to a drunken driver. A 71 year old man was struck and killed on Clairemont Mesa Blvd. when an intoxicated driver smashed into him. The driver was found in a smashed and parked vehicle about 200 yards away from where the dead mans body lay. The driver was found sitting outside his car,clearly inebriated.
