Beware of Car

It's been a crazy two weeks on Westbrook's streets.

Eighteen-year-old Shaun Geisenger crashed his car into the porch of a Longfellow Street home on March 30 and was subsequently arrested for a variety of charges, including Operating Under the Influence (OUI). Then, of course, there was the infamous hit-and-run outside Mill Side Tavern on April 3. And when you consider Randy McDonough's fatal collision with the Dana Warp Mill and the reckless driving of Scott Shepard, both of which occurred yesterday, this recent spate in vehicular attacks on man and structure almost make you want to hibernate for another five months.

Either that or long for the days when Westbrook served as the typical dateline for the drug bust du jour.
