'A vehicle's a weapon': Woman convicted of impaired driving shares experience - New Brunswick - CBC News: A Fredericton woman who killed her friend while driving under the influence is using the holidays to spread a message about the dangers of drinking and driving.
Julie Dorcas was driving home from a party in March 2007 when she came upon a sharp turn, lost control of her vehicle and drove off the shoulder of the road, killing her 19-year-old friend, Troy Price.
There were six people inside the then-26-year-old's vehicle.
"If you're one of those people that drink and drive and think that you're fine because you've been doing it for so long, then you need to wake up," an emotional Dorcas told CBC News.
"There's a lot of hurt going on right now. People need to stop doing it."
