The Napa woman whose legs were crushed when she was hit by a drunk driver Sunday night has a long, tough road to recovery.
Doctors at Queen of the Valley Medical Center operated on Lilian Clark the night of the crash, amputating both of her legs just above the knee, according to her husband, John Clark. Clark, 38, is the mother of two boys, 4 and 6. She was pinned between the rear bumper of her car and a 1990 Plymouth driven by Francisco Pacheco, 24, of Napa.

NorCal’s first Chapter Director and current Advisory Board member John Clark, witnessed an illegal alien traveling at 55 mph in a 25 mph zone slam into his car where, moments earlier, his wife placed their two young boys in their car seats, pinning her between two cars. Both of her legs had to be amputated. Both boys witnessed this accident and are traumatized.
Make the authorities who allow this personally liable for the injuries, and this will stop.
oh dear Jesus
In the old days that would’ve been Pedro’s last drive. I miss some things from earlier times.
Illegal aliens- committing crimes that Americans won’t commit.
If the illegals are employed I would go after their employers too.
This may sound extreme and forgive me for it, but summary execution where there is no doubt as to who did what to who and such sure seems like an expedient action.. is it really that barbaric when you think about it? The victims are haunted for life, the perp will just do his time and get deported..
The perp was there, the cops were there, the victims were there, hell, the kids are already traumatized,, have a Judge on stand-by and give him a call, and just do it.
It may not sober up illegals to a great degree near-term but it might actually send a message long overdue.. and one that will be heard soon enough.. and screw human rights groups that say otherwise. wait until one of their is killed or maimed for life.
All three viable presidential candidates will bring us more of this.
Execution should be for deliberate murder. This perp is scum, but his crime was a careless accident.
A woman in San Jose suffered the identical injuries at the hands of Guess Who not so long ago. She now campaigns to get these guys deported (well, just the ones who do things like this...she's still hesitant to tell all of them to leave).
What a lovely world the Bush's, the McCains, the Clintons and the rest of the political flotsam and jetsam have made for us.
I normally don’t “go off the deep end”.. the accident part is questionable.. what did he blow on his breath test, I wonder.
Keep in mind , something 12 US citizens die at the hands of illegals every day, if I remember the stat correctly, folks can dispute it all they want, if it’s 1, it’s too many.
This family and woman will be scarred for life, this prick will be deported eventually. I hope that helps some understand my earlier post.
I'd argue that driving drunk at 55 mph in a 25 mph zone goes way beyond carelessness.
OMG. This is absolutely sickening. Prayers for this woman, her little boys, and husband. When is it going to STOP???
That's very close...it's ~13 per day:
From a November 2006 article:
4,380 Americans murdered annually by illegal aliens. [That's 365 murdered Americans every single month, or 27,740] since Sept. 11, 2001
From a September 2006 article:
...between 1,806 and 2,510 people in the U.S. are murdered annually by illegal aliens. If [Mac Johnson's] right, that would represent between 11 percent and 15 percent of all murders in the U.S.
I fully agree that it was criminal carelessness but I don’t think it helped that the mom was double-parked after dark.
Thanks, those figures don’t seem to hold much sway with a lot of folks. a sad fact.
seems like a helluva penalty to pay for double parking..
No, it doesn’t seem to at all. After I posted, I rechecked my math...your figure is actually more correct than mine...I rounded up..you rounded correctly. In actuality, the numbers are likely higher than either. And as you said, even one a day is too too many.
Absolutely and I’m not saying she deserved what happened. I just shudder everytime I see someone double-parked, especially picking up kids from school everyday near my home. And it’s especially risky after dark. I don’t justify the driver. I hope he goes to jail for a long time and then gets deported. I hope the mother and her family are able to heal as much as possible. But I also hope that someone will think twice about double-parking, too.
