Letter: Test everyone after an accident

Test everyone after an accident

Highway 133 is a tough highway in the best of conditions. There have been too many tragedies on this highway over the years. I personally have known two dear friends who have lost their lives, and neither were drinking or under the influence. The recent death of Meleyna Kistner is equally tragic and hard to understand.

My question is this: She and her friend were tested for drugs and alcohol. The driver of the other car who killed her and seriously injured the friend was not tested. So, the Colorado State Patrol chose to test the two young drivers and not the older driver of the car who caused the accident?

Not OK. Very sad situation. In the death of a person on our highways, everyone needs to be tested. The law needs to change.
