Drugs played a significant role in a double fatal car accident in Buckingham Township last month, the Bucks County coroner told The Intelligencer.

Both Bereshny-Ott, of Hatfield, and Yan Zou, 50, of Jamison, were killed in the crash, which occurred shortly after 7 a.m. on March 21. 

According to officials, one of the vehicles crossed the center line, hitting the other. Both cars caught on fire.

Bereshny-Ott is a 2002 North Penn graduate and mother of two.

Yes, if this serves as a warning and it actually saves lives I agree. That wasnt my point. The writers of this poorly staffed and managed news source have no tact when writing their stories. There are plenty of better ways of displaying the information. Not only that, it has and continues to discust me how the headlines and stories are written. They come across as more entertainment, gossip, and a lot of unconfirmed hear say rather than just hard confirmed facts and common sense. Those who have pointed out the positives in how these facts may help truely see the benefits. There are many times these things happen and are not reported out of respect for the families involved. Some things are none of our business and some even though may not involve us directly should be reported. The problem here is a pattern of tact and history of inaccurate tallentless writing.

@autodial, I dont know why I have to explain what my sentences or point was yet again but you seem to be confused. Never did I say or complain about facts being reported. There are more tjan one way to do that. Sometimes just to say it with 1 or 2 statements, sometimes to make sure it shows up in an appropriate spot, sometimes in a way that gives a positive message and makes some good out of a horrible event. This isnt the only article I am referring to from Patch when I say they have a lot to learn, tallent to develop, and integrity to find the definition to. Weather you all see it or not this type of reporting without a little help toward encouraging a positive message turns into plain old gossip and exaduration. That for sure does more harm than good.

Again, for the third time, I didnt say this particular article had hearsay, falsehoods nor did I say the facts should be swept under the rug. I simply pointed out the tact displayed and impression it gives displays attraction from readers looking for the latest dirt moreso than warning the audience of the dangers of drug use while driving and potential harm to your health and others. My post was out of frustration from the past stories I have been reading and now from the readers that may want to reread my post 3 more times.

Once again an innocent victim and their Family is subjected to the turmoil of another who suffered from the disease of addiction. My condolences to Yan Zou's family.
