So I tweeted this like over a year ago: "Zachary Hartwell’s parents suing Ryan Dunn’s estate is stupid Zack could have spoken up about Ryan Dunn driving that night but he didnt" and last night this girl tweeted at me saying: "Zack is my cousin. Thanks for tweeting this you make me feel so special-.-" I replyed back saying :”im sorry your cousin didnt speak up then maybe both Zack and Dunn would still be alive”
For those of you who dont know who Zack Hartwell is/was the passenger in Ryan Dunn’s car that tragic night that they crashed and died.
Yes, Ryan Dunn was extremely stupid for getting into his car and trying to drive after consuming the copious amounts of alcohol that both him and Zack did. But Zack had just as much responsibility as Dunn did to speak up and say “Hey lets call a cab to take us home we’ve had way too much to drink…or lets get one of our sober friends to drive us home” but Zack didn’t. They both got into the car and are both dead. Maybe if Zack had spoken up both he and Ryan Dunn would still be here.
Preventing drunk driving is everyone’s responsibility NOT just the drivers! If you know your friend has had too much to drink then speak up and say something don’t let them drink and drive!!
