  1. Shortly after this accident happened at our front entrance on Highway 21, I witnessed heroic efforts by Hays County EMS and San Marcos Police to rescue the person who passed away. As a citizen and witness to your extraordinary work, I appreciate all you did to try to save the life of this person.

  2. Drunk drivers need –
    Huge fines
    Loss of license
    Loss of vehicle
    jail time – if they hurt others

    There is just no reason at all for tolerating drunk drivers
