    If it’s true that alcohol and speed were involved, I pray no innocent family was involved! DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE!

    Please wait until there are these new things called facts before you preach or judge.

    RR… I am not preaching nor am I judging. I am commenting on what we all read, that is what we do here, comment. I have no malicious intent.

    Lastly, thank you for enlightening me to “these new things called facts”…

    Looking forward to your future insightful posts.

    Prayers go out to Freddie and Alyssa and anyone else involved in accident.


  7. LeeAnn says:

    Alcohol is suspected..NOT confirmed to be a contributing factor along with speed. Everyone jumps on that. I say let’s wait until the cause is determined and whether or not it is an actual fact please. To spread that and then have it be false would be awful and hurtful to him and his reputation. The police should not have said that until they knew for sure. I am sending healing vibes and prayers for a speedy recovery for them both.


  8. Me says:

    This is really awful. I hope they both recover quickly. Ever since CM was ousted off the show, shit happens to Freddie. It has to get better from now on! If alcohol was involved though _ _ _


  9. Afra says:

    I wish you Alyssa to get well soon, you are such a nice lady. love and best wishes for fast recovery. Freddie, thank God that you are OK. My prayers for both of you. love you !


  10. jeff says:

    Normally, the authorities involved in car accidents don’t make a statement about alcohol being involved unless there’s a pretty good reason to suspect it. That being said, I hope they are ok and regardless of what caused the accident…speed, alcohol, or both..a lesson is learned.


    Mary SF replied

    I agree the police who deal with this kind of thing day in and day out, usually have a good idea of what happened even before anything is made official– but lets remember there’s alcohol as in plastered to the gills, then there’s alcohol as in a couple glasses of wine at dinner— we don’t the amount until or unless charges are laid; but speed, well speed is dangerous even if you are cold stone sober—-just grateful they are alive to learn a lesson if need be, because many are not as fortunate


    DidjaNoit replied

    “Suspecting” speed and alcohol involvement isn’t the same thing as speed and alcohol being involved. Speed being involved could be just going 40mph in a 35mph zone, and for all anyone knows the passenger may be the reason they said “suspected alcohol involvement”.

    It’s not like the authorities never, ever get anything wrong either, especially when they are trying to comment on celebrities. /sarcasm


    4ever DAYS replied

    Why would the officer say speed and alcohol are suspected instead of speeding and alcohol? Could he mean speed…the drug?

  11. Lisa niepert says:

    I hope alcohol was not a part of this terrible accident. If it was shame on you for drinking and driving i am a survivor from a terrible accident from a drunk lucky to be here but that is here or there. I send prayers to Freddie and Alyssa and a speedy recovery. LeeAnn it is true that they do not know if alcohol was involved but speeding was no doubt about it and he did lose control so as a survivor I am sure Alcohol played a part everyone has a different opinion so lets not be jumping everyone for there opinion!


  12. MBmomof3 says:

    Prayers for speedy recovery for all involved.


  13. Lia says:

    What a shame if alcohol was involved because he should know better. How many PSA are out there asking that we not drink and drive? So anyone who does, has a total disregard for human life, and I don’t care who they are and what they do for a living.


  14. Rj says:

    Thoughts and prayers go out to Freddie and his girlfriend for a speedy recovery!


  15. kay says:

    Prayers are sent to Alyssa and Freddie. It does not matter to me if the driver was drinking or not. Accidents happen. Speed and alcohol combined is an accident waiting to happen, but we do not know for sure that alcohol was involved at this point. They can suspect but until the test results are received, that is all it is. The first thing I thought of when I heard about the accident is possibly a deer ran into the road and he swerved to miss it, or possibly a dog or something like that. All we can do is pray for these two, and send them love and support. If alcohol was involved, then he will have to deal with that in time. Right now the important thing is for Alyssa to get better and heal from her injuries. Judging Freddie will not help, especially when we do not know all of the facts.


    Observer replied

    Kay I am curious. If your sister or mother or father or any member of yours family were the passenger and this had happen to them. Would you still think, Accidents happen. While you are absolutely correct that no one knows the facts. The situation of someone driving drunk can not be so flippantly be disregarded. I don’t get why people call drunk driving event accidents in the first place. There is no accident. A person who was drunk got behind the wheel of what will become a death machine. That person did not have an ACCIDENT. Their actions were deliberate. No one on Gods green earth would say that driving drunk is okay. The way people so carelessly throw around accident because of who is involved is quite disturbing. If death had resulted and thank God it didn’t, it would be called vehicular homicide. I wish them both well. But if it comes back in the negative. He should get what any average joe would get. You have to pay the piper.
