Wrong-way crash driver’s husband to appear on Larry King tonight
I don’t watch a lot of Larry King. To be honest, I can’t remember ever sitting through a full interview of his.
He has interesting guests, but I find King himself pretty tough to take.
That said, I plan to check out his show tonight at 9 p.m. on CNN.
LoHud.com is reporting that King will have Daniel Schuler, husband of wrong-way crash mom Diane Schuler, on as a guest.
Diane Schuler was the woman who drove north in the southbound lane of the Taconic Parkway July 26, striking an oncoming SUV in a collision that killed her, her 2-year-old daugther and three young nieces, as well as three Yonkers men on their way to a family dinner.
In a bizarre press conference soon after with attorney Dominic Barbara, of Howard Stern Show fame, Daniel Schuler and family members said medical ailments such as diabetes, an untreated abscess in her mouth, a “bump” on her leg that could have been an embolism or a stroke might have been to blame for the crash.
Diane Schuler was later found to have a blood-alcohol level the equivalent to 10 drinks and high levels of THC, the active ingredient in marijuana, in her blood. State police said she smoked marijuana as recently as 15 minutes before the crash.
I cannot imagine what Daniel Schuler will have to say tonight. He lost so much himself in that crash — his wife, a daughter, three nieces — and his son Brian, 5, was badly injured.
I hope this won’t be a repeat of that press conference, but I’ll tune in because, as cut and dried as the toxicology results were, this is a case replete with questions and wanting for answers.
