    Poor girl.. I am getting so fed up with people who drive when they’re drunk, you’re not only risking your life but you’re risking the lives of so many other people. He wasn’t even allowed to drink for Christ’s sake. I hope he gets a huge punishment, the guy deserves it.
    ps: the guy is actually 20 so I tweaked my comment. But 16 year olds still shouldn’t be allowed to drive.

    It’s so selfish to drive drunk not only does that decision possibly kill you it could kill a innocent person. Rip Giselle.

    That’s absolutely tragic.

    It makes it so much sadder that she was innocently sleeping in her bed! To die at home, where you’re supposed to feel the most security… That’s just awful.
