Driver in D.C. crash had driving violations

By Washington Post editors


The driver of a van that D.C. police say struck a car in Southeast Monday, killing one woman and injuring four children, has a long record of alleged driving violations, WUSA 9 reports.

Agene Jones, 34, of no fixed address, is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the accident that killed Mary Elizabeth Winbush, 37, of Southeast. Four children, ages 2 to 10, were taken to hospitals in critical condition following the accident.

Jones, who was also injured in the accident, has received three citations since August 2009 for driving without a license or driving with a suspended license, WUSA reports. He is scheduled to appear April 28 in Prince George's County on an outstanding charge.

Only in DC and PG County MD can someone continue to offend multiple times before they actually end up killing someone like this man did. DC and PG County have that mentality that until someone is killed or seriously injured, we will just give this person a citation to appear in court at a later date and allow them to keep breaking laws until someone is seriously hurt!

This is the type of person that should go to jail for the rest of their life.

Jail is too good for this guy. Kill the mongrel and save the taxpayers a lot of $$ while ensuring that other innocent lives are not senselessly ruined.

Ahhh, the catch and release system. Yet another to hate liberals.

The problem here is bigger than just the driver. The street where this accident occured is NOTORIOUS for speeding and accidents. I know, I've lived there for five years and seen at least 10 accidents. The worst part about it is there are lights there that could be offset to slow drivers down, but they are green at the same time. What does our mayor do to fix the problem? Speed camera so the city can make money. That woman should still be alive.

.....oh and there's a playground, library and a school right there too. Thx Fenty, you are the man!

To brock200: Yeah, blame the mayor for this senseless tragedy too, but answer this: Who is your councilmember?

Mr. Jones, may you taste death before your karma catches up with you. Stupid fool.

So much trash running around DC and the surrounding area. Why am I not surprised? Every time I drive by a radar cop catching people going 47 in a 35, I will think of this victim.
