    British drivers? I mean, almost half the world drives on the wrong side of the road... Indians, Aussies, Japanese... do too. I wonder if these students were from one of those countries.

    It is just awful to watch that video. How horrific that these 4 individuals could tragically lose their lives in a snap of a finger. God rest their souls and bring comfort to their families and friends.

    It appears they were from India, but they were the ones going the right way.

    more than likely, this happened early Sunday morning. Saturday night was the Gasparilla Night Parade down in Ybor. The number of intoxicated drivers on the road had to numerous.

    That is a strange twist... Unbelievable. Are the investigators positive about this? Because that's just nuts if it's true.

    This wasn't just vehicular homicide. This was murder. Felony reckless endangerment resulting in the deaths of four other people.

    There's a huge difference watching something real and watching fake TV violence. It's just a sickening feeling. Then when the woman starts screaming, it's too much. I can't watch it again.

    Wrong way Interstate driving accidents usually are due to alcohol or dementia. Given the time of the accident, I'm betting on the former.
