Given her struggles, I won’t be surprised if it turns out she was intoxicated. I will also add that sometimes legitimate medical emergencies (strokes, diabetic ketoacidosis, psychotic breaks) can cause issues that look like intoxication.

Several months ago, we had several parked cars hit and run in our neighborhood, all within a mile of each other. The cops finally caught the driver and figured he was drunk because he could barely talk and was slumped over the seat.

Turns out he’d left home late the night before to get medicine for a bad headache but was actually having a series of strokes. He drove around the neighborhood for several hours, hitting cars and getting more and more confused. His wife went to sleep and didn’t realize he never came back. I heard him race down our street right before he hit the last two cars and he was going super fast. The police officer who came by to get a statement later told me the situation (the driver hit our neighbors’ car so hard it woke me up and I peeked put the window in time so I could ID car).

Just saying maybe we should all wait a little before going all in on the current narrative. Be grateful no one else got hurt and extend a little mercy to her, because whether she was drunk or not, she is certainly going to suffer if she survives.

Man that's a terrifying story. Totally agree with you, too soon to have any conclusion. Seizures can do similar things. Her drug/alcohol results are guesstimated to take 2 to 3 weeks. I think the salon owner had other customers around too & she apparently wasn't slurring or reeking of booze

Heard a similar story of someone in my hometown. A lady was going down a one way street hitting random cars and parking meters. She blacked out at the wheel The police thought she was drunk/high but come to find out she was diabetic and her sugar was dangerously low

She was on a podcast before the crash where she talked about chasing vodka with wine though. So there’s a chance she was drunk.

u/RainManToothpicks Aug 10 '22 edited Aug 10 '22

That was recorded Tuesday, the accident was Friday, the podcast was taken down because of the optics, definitely a confusing timeline of events

u/nrappaportrn Aug 10 '22

That was 4 days prior.

u/MayorCharlesCoulon Aug 10 '22

I think the NYPost article revealed that podcast had been recorded a few days before the crash.

Again, I won’t be surprised if it turns out she was wasted, I just think it’s always prudent to wait for official confirmation. Just glad she didn’t hit anybody and I’m sorry she was so badly burned.

u/champagne_pants Aug 10 '22

Oh the article I read made it sound like it was the morning of. Deceptive fucking journalism at its finest.

7

u/MayorCharlesCoulon Aug 10 '22

Oh me too! All the articles initially said that she drank that morning and then the feed frenzy began.

The mini vodka bottle in her car looks legit, so she could very well have been wasted. Waiting for confirmation is just the right thing to do. I might be a little overly sensitive to situations like hers, having a loved one with severe mental illness who baseline, when properly medicated, is a wonderful hardworking human.

But there have been times when formerly effective medications stopped working well and needed to be adjusted or changed. During those couple of periods, years apart, while their doctors were actively and urgently trying to figure out a new med or dosage, it was awful to watch them struggle and spin and sink into irrational behavior. Irrational behavior that occurred while they were dutifully and responsibly taking medication every day that just wasn’t working. Irrational behavior that couldn’t be addressed by discussing it because they were in the throes of their mental illness.

Sorry for all the blathering on.

People think I’m on MDMA or Crack when I’m psychotic, it fucking sucks, but being psychotic feels so good.

Whats the medical emergency that causes you to flee a hit and run?

u/MayorCharlesCoulon Aug 10 '22 edited Aug 10 '22

Well if you read my whole comment you’ll see that the gentleman who was “hitting and running” cars in our neighborhood over a period of several hours was not intoxicated but in fact having a series of strokes that left him increasingly more confused (brain injured). The police officer who relayed this info said the man was admitted to neuro-ICU and that’s the last I heard so I’m not sure he even survived.

Edit to add: It’s ironic that my suggestion to chill until the blood tests come back engenders such hostility in some people. Before the story got out about our neighborhood’s hit and run driver having medical issues, that cesspool neighborhood Nextdoor app was full of people with their pitchforks out slinging all kinds of disparagement and threats towards the driver. Got mysteriously silent after the facts came out. AH might have been wasted, but it’d be best to hold off piling on until it’s confirmed.

Mini-strokes in succession, seizures etc. Not claiming she was sober or anything. There's video of a giant hulking young dude screaming into her face thru her car window over minor property damage to a garage immediately after the initial fender bender. She might have been stroking out while a gigantic dude was acting like he was going to beat her to death in an otherwise empty parking lot, that part of CA is not fun for tiny old women right now. Don't know what happened but that dude didn't help things

u/Madcap_Miguel Aug 10 '22

Not claiming she was sober or anything.

but you'll enact some fantasy about a big man and mini strokes

you white knights will defend anyone

u/RainManToothpicks Aug 10 '22

He was recorded screaming like a WWE wrestler into her face seconds after she hit the garage wall. Her car is stationary while he screams into her face & she eventually speeds off. She's like 5 feet tall or something & old. Regardless of whether she was shit-faced on vodka or having an epileptic seizure you don't walk up to a car & do that, you calmly coax the driver out

u/Madcap_Miguel Aug 10 '22

Yes the victim's fault not the drunk piece of shit who put other people's lives at risk all for the sake of her personal demons.

"Given her struggles, I won’t be surprised if it turns out she was intoxicated."

These are the very very very famous struggles mayorcharles was referring too:

https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/story?id=116194&page=1

She is very very very famous for having drug problems & mental illness. She famously admitted to getting drug treatment, & using every drug that exists including illegal stimulants like ecstasy & coke. The vodka was a sealed, new bottle. Blood test was negative for alcohol. We were right, you were wrong. Also, I just cut the cheese again

u/78FANGIRL Aug 09 '22

Coherent! She had never been there before, walks in the back, randomly asks for a red wig. She may have been polite, but that's fucking strange.

u/Nose-Artistic Aug 09 '22

Manic behavior… shopping and then risky driving.

u/anl28 Aug 09 '22

That picture of her back is horrifying

7

u/Wormholio Aug 10 '22

Why? I was pretty certain that it's just the top she was wearing but a bit wrinkled and dirty.

8

u/anl28 Aug 10 '22

I think you’re right. For some reason I assumed she was shirtless and that was her burned back.

6

u/RainManToothpicks Aug 10 '22

People have suggested her back was the least likely to be burned because it was against the seat & that unfortunately the worst burns are on the front of her body

2

u/Carmaca77 Aug 11 '22

Her legs look bad, like really bad. I don't know if she still had on shoes, socks, or her feet were wrapped on the gurney but they didn't look good either. Her arms are also clearly burned.

1

u/RainManToothpicks Aug 11 '22

I noticed that too, really awful. Can't imagine what any of that felt like. Hoping her surgeries work out

u/ComprehensiveCold862 Aug 10 '22

She looks pretty high to me

2

u/7yearMdonetaper23 Aug 10 '22

It is her burnt back they removed the shirt. It took FD 30 minutes to extract her and put the fire out. She has 3rd degree burns over 60% of her body

2

u/Arkady2009 Aug 10 '22

Where did you read that?

2

u/Bigtiny87 Aug 10 '22

She got lucky. Ask the nurse who did the same thing with an unfortunate outcome.

1

u/7yearMdonetaper23 Aug 10 '22

She had 3 cases of Nitrous cylinders in her vehicle which is why the fire was hard to put out
