TEENS: The message your parents need to tell you:

RIDE WITH A DUI DRIVER, BUY A TICKET TO YOUR OWN FUNERAL

From FOX Carolina

SPARTANBURG, SC – 04/12/2015 — The South Carolina Highway Patrol is investigating a fatal crash that occurred early Sunday morning.

Troopers said they were called to Trammel Road at Riverbend Road about 3:15 a.m. in regards to a deadly collision.

NOAH LAMBERT HAS BEEN CHARGED WITH FELONY DUI RESULTING IN DEATH

ATTENTION READERS: The following posts to the DWI Hit Parade Facebook page have been included with this graphic and news about the DUI arrest of Noah Lambert for the death of his passenger Brandon Stites.

It appears from the sentiments expressed below that there will be many more DUI deaths in this community.  Travelers would be advised to avoid this peculiar area of South Carolina.

The logic expressed here is that since they were all friends, no one should hold the adult driver responsible for his actions; that since they were all drinking, the death of Stites was the equal responsibility of all those involved.

The reality: All those who boarded Noah’s booze cruise were indeed responsible for their own entry into the vehicle. Noah should be held accountable for his actions in spite of the bad judgment of his pals.  The people of Woodruff need to sober up before any more of their young people die unnecessarily and today would be a good day to begin to get their heads on straight.  They have a long way to go.

“It was an accident” said one poster below.

A fatality taking place as a result of a crash caused by an intoxicated driver is not an “accident”. That death is a predictable outcome of a choice made by the driver who needs to be held accountable.

  • Kristen Williams Wood This is extremely distasteful. All the parties in the car were drinking. Children don’t use good judgment and now Noah has to live with this forever. Apparently you’ve lived your life without fault or any bad judgment i’m guessing?

  • Chelsey Nicholle Mills Before people start assuming and what not , being related to Brandon my family and I do not appreciate the harsh words. We are not mad or infuriated although we would like to clarify that Brandon was NOT drunk. Please do not tell stories if you aren’t sure of the details. We all have opinions and all of our families have to deal with what has happened.

  • Kevin Sontag This is obviously not endorsed by fox Carolina. P.s. I haven’t read anywhere that Brandon had been drinking so not sure where people get that info. He may have been unaware that the other boys had been drinking. Have the alcohol levels of the driverSee More

  • Aspen Christine Mixon There’s a special place in hell for people like you! Even the press is letting light onto the fact that all of these boys were best friends, all were intoxicated, and the whole thing was an accident! Think about the families of EVERYONE involved, and how Noah is dealing with the fact that his best friend is gone because of a mistake that far too many teens make all the time, just without this type of consequence!

  • WillandMegan Quinn Just another reason why i do not watch fox Carolina news. I had clients to tell me they seen some of the anchors of the news station drinking and peeing in public and even getting into a vehicle drunk in downtown Greenville. And they are going to post something like this really makes me mad. They only care for their safety but think about others when they in to their own cars after they’ve had a few drinks.

  • James Compton ALL of the community is in pain over this decision I along with million of other teens have made. Noah is devastated over the consequences of his choices that night. Tia community is bonding together to lift him up in the spirit Brandon would have. We know these young people. You jerks don’t. We don’t need your outside blasting of a young man that will have to live with the fact his best friend is dead because of it. No one can punish him more than he is already being punished by his conscience. With a name like DWI Hit Parade, you show that you get your kicks from sensationalizing someone’s grief. You are a sick lot and I pray you never have a loved one experience what these families are agonizing over. May God have mercy on you!
