David Belniak doesn't deny he was under the influence when he crashed into a truck in Hudson on Christmas Day 2007. But he blames the crash that killed three people on the man driving the car he hit.

If I was the judge, I would have jailed that clown soon as he showed up to court. When he asked me why, I would have said because racecar.

Nothing lower than a greasy lawyer who smells money and fame. Guilt or loss of life means shit to them if they gain a payday from it. If she loses, so what? She loses nothing and another tragedy to exploit is right around the corner.

Some ignorant person hit my sister; the accident totaled my sister's car. Weeks later, the no-driving bitch has my sister and several others served. She had hit seven other people in less than two years, and was suing all of them for basically not knowing she was out there. Her lawyer wanted to settle; we called the other defendants and said hell no. Judge dismissed the entire case, admonished plaintiff and her counsel, and advised everyone to sue her and her insurance instead.

Folks, I read that Belniak's suit lost. One bright spot. And he's lost his driver's license for life.

His "evasive action" scar is from trying to swerve out of hitting a parked car going 70mph.

Just my own speculation, his side of the story of the car switching lanes to late giving him no time to react, could very well had happened. Not defending him, but drunk or not if that happened to a sober person, they would still have gotten rear ended. Which ultimately caused the crash right? Some people put a blinker on and don’t even wait a half a second before switching lanes. It’s bad driving on both parts honestly. And we all know how old people drive, they can’t even turn a neck to see the blind spots 😂 They think the mirrors are all safe and good enough.

Good thing is this piece of trash is still in prison. Unfortunately he is in a work release camp so he has his freedom back already for the most part. Should of gotten more time since he had a prior conviction.
Terry Rhuebottom (3 months ago)
He was drunk. The fact he was driving is cause for the accident regardless of any other circumstances. If he would have had a single brain cell working he wouldn't have gotten behind the wheel. If you ask me he made a choice that he knew could have killed someone. Might as well have tried him for first-degree murder and given him the death penalty.

penitent2401 (3 months ago)
if you were drunk or under influence you are not qualified to drive at that point therefore are not meant to be on the road. any accidents that occurs with your involvement is at your fault even if it is your right of way, the other driver can be charged with traffic violations but the fault of the accident still lies with you as you are not meant to be there in the first place.

Spread the word! David Belniak's parents hid his money so he wouldn't have to pay this poor family. Their business is hammerhead construction in spring hill, fl. Their business needs to be ruined for protecting their entitled spoiled GROWN son who murdered 4 people.

Update: He lost and he is also seeing a 12 year sentence, this is a little text from the news I found: The jurors didn't know about Belniak's prior criminal background: His eight speeding tickets and three citations for not observing traffic signs. His two DUI charges. His prior, 17-month prison term after officers found a gallon of the intoxicant GHB in his Ford Mustang. His petition for early release from drug offender probation, which was granted on Nov. 27, 2007, just one month before the fatal crash. Nice man.

What's the problem? He was drunk and speeding when he crashed his car into the other. He was under the influence so that makes him not guilty. Drugs and alcohol do strange things to people and it's not their fault they get tipsy. This stuff happens all the time and courts allow this. Just end all this and let him go free and he promises to never do this again....
FallingDown.us (4 months ago)
Not to take sides... just because someone has alcohol in their system doesn't mean the other driver wasn't an idiot too. I didn't hear anything about that in this video. If we follow this kind of logic, anyone who has cough syrup before being hit by another car is automatically guilty of all aspects of the crash. Not sure I can agree with that. Perhaps there is more to this in other videos.

Sounds like the drunk asshole that slammed into my car at a redlight at 65 miles an hour. He went around blaming me even though there were witnesses and only one set of skid marks(mine). And as far as a scar on the arm, I have one too from my windows shattering and cutting my arm. It doesn't prove shit. he also needs to be in jail if he killed three people!
7.756.935 (4 months ago)
Amanda Davis He is serving 12 years and will never be allowed to drive again for the rest of his life. Aaand, add : Belniak's prior criminal background: His eight speeding tickets and three citations for not observing traffic signs. His two DUI charges. His prior, 17-month prison term after officers found a gallon of the intoxicant GHB in his Ford Mustang. His petition for early release from drug offender probation, which was granted on Nov. 27, 2007, just one month before the fatal crash.

He was at fault the minute he got into his car and decided to drive drunk. When you drive drunk and kill people, you don't get to sue people for anything, you are responsible for everything that happened!

I would pay 50 bucks just to punch this guy in the face and dare him to do something about it.
So he's drunk, right? That nullifies anything that happens against him on the road with him driving. I wouldn't even care if the accident wasn't his fault. If he wasn't on the road illegally the accident would not have occurred.

Not only should've this joker NOT gotten one cent, but he should have had to pay ALL legal and medical fees for his victims as well as lost wages, and other expenses. He has NO excuse and shouldn't have been trying to make victims of this family a 2nd time. What a scum bag. This has been decided I'm sure, I don't know how it went. But this idiots case shouldn't have even disgraced the floor of the court.

I don't get it, are we supposed to feel sorry for the drunk driver? Did the victims make him drink and take drugs? BTW, he lost this suit, his suit against the highway patrol and the suit brought against him, he has to pay each victim $6 million. Now he's under investigation for hiding his assets by selling/giving everything to...his family..

Belniak's sister is the lawyer who brought this bullshit case. She probably took it on at the urging of mother & father.
