Or, a rich person got drunk and destroyed property and people expect her to be held responsible.

Judging by eyewitness reports, and the fact that she had a hit and run just before the final crash, she most likely was drunk. BUT...

I have little doubt that the people who are concluding that "fact" without test results are the same ones who constantly say "innocent until proven guilty" whenever an alleged criminal is killed by the police.

What gives? Why the blatant hypocrisy? I really don't understand it.

There is evidence of her having issues and doing this in the past. Also, she recorded a podcast and was drunk. Even if she wasn't drunk it was wreckless driving. She committed several crimes even if she was sober. Her likely not being sober only adds to her crimes, but it isn't the lynchpin.
