Meet Sherri Wilkins.
This 51 year-old resident of Torrance, California was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving and manslaughter charges.
On Saturday night, Wilkins was driving her vehicle on Torrance Boulevard, around 11:25pm, with an alcohol level twice the legal limit. At the same time, Philip Moreno (pictured below) was crossing Torrance Boulevard.
And that’s where this story takes a horrific turn.
As Moreno began to cross the street, Wilkins was barreling down the same street and hit him.
Did she stop?
Wilkins kept on driving.
Wilkins kept right on driving with Moreno embedded in the hood of her car for 2.3 miles.
No telling how long she would’ve drove with Moreno stuck in her windshield because she only stopped after witnesses along the thoroughfare convinced her to pull over near Crenshaw Boulevard and 182nd Street.
Wilkins hit Moreno so hard that she literally knocked Moreno out of his shoes and shorts.
Moreno was in critical condition when emergency services reached him but was aware enough to speak to officers at the scene.
He was rushed to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
She told officers she was driving home from work.
But with a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit, I wonder if Wilkins work at a brewery.
There were no witnesses to the initial incident, but there were several witnesses that saw Moreno embedded in Wilkins hood and windshield.
I hope the citizens of the city of Torrance stay close to this case.
This lady needs some jail time to re-think her life.
