    Someone in Jessie Whites office needs to start an investigation into how a person with no driver's license and no insurance was able to buy–register a car and GET LICENSE PLATES for it. Ho can a compay hire a person to transport other people that has no driver's license? what kind of background checks do they do?? FOUR PEOPLE DEAD BECAUSE PEOPLE AS JUST TOO GREEDY OR LAZY TO DO A GOOD JOB

    Just saw the noon news and the commentator said that the woman in the I 290 accident was charged with improper lane useage, failure to reduce speed and "other charges." "OTHER CHARGES"? REALLY? How about no license and insurance. Interesting reporting.
