Two young girls, a 14-year-old and a 12-year-old, are dead in what state police are calling an alcohol-related crash.
Police say that 17-year-old Wayne Lovato, of Las Vegas, was driving the vehicle while under the influence of liquor. Lovato, who is being charged with two counts of vehicular homicide and a host of other crimes, deserves to have his day in court.
But if the preliminary investigation conducted by state police holds up, and if Lovato was indeed driving while drunk, then this community needs to start asking itself some hard questions.
