I spoke yesterday about Dr. Robert Geronemus. The man that hit him luckily in this case was caught. He is now being charged with a DUI manslaughter charge. The man: Richard Anthony Doval, 40. He did not stop after hitting Dr. Geronemus. When the police pulled him over they found an open, half-bottle of liquor in the truck. They say his speech was slurred and he had the odor of alcohol. Richard Doval tried to say the damage on the truck was from hitting a mailbox. Seriously, RICHARD!!! They have witnesses….
I am happy they caught up to this idiot and they were able to arrest him, unlike some other cases that are still currently pending. But the facts remain, Dr. Geronemus is no longer with us, his partners will miss him, his patience will miss him, his friends will miss him, but more importantly his Family will miss him. Why, because some idiot couldn’t control his liquor habits, couldn’t do it at home and stepped into his truck, too wasted to drive straight. He didn’t only ruin the life of someone who tried to save others, he ruined the Dr. Geronemus’s families life. He also ruined his own life.
May the strength guide this family to move forward in life, and may the man who caused these sins be punished for what he did.
