The driver expressed regret to the victim’s family. “There are a million things I could say to people.”
“I’d like to apologise.
“I want to express my deepest regret for what happened.” He felt sorry for the family and survivors who got injured.
“It’s really difficult to accept that, and living with that in your head for the rest of your life isn’t easy either.”
Junior Sullivan’s parents were killed in a car accident while the driver was watching *orn.
“If people look at it and think, ‘I don’t want to be that person, I don’t want to be in prison, I don’t want to be that person,'”
“Hopefully, people will take something away from it if they look at it and think, ‘I don’t want to be that person, I don’t want to be in prison, I don’t want to have killed three people, I don’t want that on my conscience, look at what it’s done to that guy.'”
This terrible accident ruined the family by taking the life of innocent people. He regrets watching *orn.
