#1 A possibly important bit from the article: The driver of the sport utility vehicle, Hector Valazquez-Nava, 24, of Los Angeles and passenger Lydia Mora, 29, of Azusa were taken to UCLA Medical Center and treated for minor injuries. Valazquez-Nava was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, operating a motor vehicle without a driver's license and gross vehicular manslaughter.

Why was he driving without a license? Was he an illegal alien?

#2 Even if this guy was an illegal, official hollyweird will let out nary a peep. It's un-PC to say anything bad about "undocumented" persons...

#3 You know they'll never say Zhang Fei. The MSM thinks its that easy to get one over the unwashed masses. However, as your very question demonstrates, we now assume the driver probably was an illegal, undermining the very thing the MSM was trying to cover up.

Isn't this new world of free press Pravda and Izvestia wonderful?

#4 I thought it meant he'd had his license revoked or suspended for previous DUI's. It's what most do - get back in the car drunk again - and without a license. Typical escalating drunk driving die hard. Further reports should reveal just how many priors.

#5 ...A Christmas Story was filmed not far from my old neighborhood in Cleveland. The biggest reason I watch that movie every year is because it's like going back home. God bless you and your sons, Mr. Clark, and my God comfort and watch over your family.

#6 ZF, maybe not. If my memory serves me correctly, most illegals also get done for failing to have current vehicle registration and insurance along with the ever popular no license charge. Prosecutors always like to load up the charges so they can plea bargain some of them away later.

He probably just can't stay off the sauce and has had a previous DUI (or two...or three or more....).

-----------------

I just hope that Mr Clark's family can find comfort and solace with their friends, and know that many people are thankful for his work on "A Christmas Story".

#8 In the purgatory of a bad internet connection. I now live in fear of any more "new, wonderful" equipment my sweetie brings home....had to get additional stuff just to make it all compatible.

Plus, the Tsarevich is starting to wander off from where I put him down. It's amazing that someone who can't even crawl yet manages to scoot and roll across the floor as quickly as he does. ;)

#9 Right boys. Well, in good old New Mexico, Governor Richardson [D-wanabe President] has directed the state offices to "don't ask, don't tell" when they provide services to illegals. So yes indeed, at least there you can be an illegal with a couple DUIs and suspended license. And the Motor Vehicle Dept is infamous for selling genuine NM drivers license even after working hours. For the right incentive of course. Wonder why the State Dept is pushing for passports for cross border trips to our neighbors?

His medical bills, court costs, jail costs, then prison costs. not to mention our insurance premiums go up to cover the uninsured..

#13 Yet another uncounted cost of illegals. A favorite author of mine had to quit writing after a severe auto accident. An unlicensed illegal driving a log-carrier truck plowed into her car. The phyical injuries and some brain damage just made it impossible for her to write anymore. Plus, she was driven to bankruptcy by the medical bills since the illegal driver of course had no insurance.
