The operator of a sober living home allegedly struck a Torrance pedestrian while twice the legal limit and continued to drive drunk for about two miles before her arrest.
Sherri Lynn Wilkins, 51, of Torrance, panicked when she struck the man at 11:25 p.m. Saturday on Torrance Boulevard near Madrid Avenue, reports the Daily Breeze.
Wilkins allegedly struck 31-year-old Phillip Moreno and continued to drive with the dying man stuck in the windshield of her Mitsubishi Eclipse. A citizen told her to stop and took away her keys.

I had one of those. Guy hits a ped and half his head and face are still in the windshield. He drives home and goes to sleep. It was close to his house and we followed broker glass to his driveway. He was very surprized when 6 deputies woke him up at gunpoint.

Summary execution is too good for these morons. Knowing CA, Wilkins will probably get a slap on the wrist rather then murder 2 for depraved indifference.

Bob hit it right on the head. Unfortunately that's exactly what's going to happen.
