When I started working for Dennis Michael Lynch last month, he told me to cover more stories that get completely ignored by the big media outlets.  He said, “everything in the news is about the Left vs. the Right.  I want you to cover the right vs. the wrong.”

When I asked for an example, he said, “Drunk driving.  Nobody ever covers the small DUI accidents that take innocent lives.  It’s as if we just chalk them all up as the cost of doing business in America.  We need to hold people accountable and shine a light on those who are irresponsible law breakers.”

I cover these stories with the hope you will read and share.

On Sunday, around 6:30 a.m., a horrific four-car crash in Queens, New York, took the lives of two people and injured three others.

Andrew Shakespeare, 33, lost control of his SUV  and collided with another vehicle on the road, sending both cars flying across several lanes and tearing through the guardrail.

Allegedly, Shakespeare had been drinking heavily at a wedding Saturday night before getting behind the wheel. Witnesses say he reeked of beer and had bloodshot eyes.

Akeam Grant, 16, was thrown from Shakespeare’s SUV and died at the scene. Layon Campbell, 34, was tossed from the car and died at a nearby hospital a few hours later. Another 16-year-old boy in Shakespeare’s SUV suffered a fractured pelvis and arm, and two men who were riding in the vehicle hit by Shakespeare, ages 60 and 63, went to the hospital for multiple fractures.

Shakespeare has been charged with manslaughter, assault, reckless endangerment and reckless driving. Bail was set at $300,000. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison.
