    Mother had to pay for cost of cleaning her son's blood off the streets after he is killed by a drunk driver through no fault of his own

    A drunken driver killed an Upstate women's son last year, and if the grief wasn't enough, she's had to deal with bills associated with the wreck, even for the cost of cleaning up her son's blood.
    A coroner called Loretta Robinson last June and told her that her oldest son, Justin Walker, died when his car was struck by a drunken driver on White Horse Road.

    This is sad and disgusting. The mom should not have had to pay to have her son's blood cleaned off of the streets
    May God be with you and your families as you Protect and Serve.

    I know I don't think " mainstream" but shouldn't the drunken at fault driver be responsible for the cost associated with her crimes? So she was an illegal immigrant without means of payment. Why not waive payment of bills like that just like any medical & legal fees she received? Hell , bill her country of orgin. Who sends bills for that anyone ? Here , a city work crew would have took care of that. Isn't that why we pay taxes?

    That's how it works here. WE impound vehicles for criminal investigations, and if we can't keep it in our own secured lot, WE pay the cost of keeping it in a secured impound elsewhere. Also, the fire department typically washes down the road when needed, and they don't charge for the service.

    The only thing we don't have control over is the cost of the tow.
