Deaf Mom Killed While Walking on Sidewalk

An alleged drunk driver killed a deaf mother of 3 children in Montana early this morning. Roberta Demmert and her sister were walking on the sidewalk when Tom Vineyard hit them with his pickup, according to Missoula police. Vineyard's Ford Ranger truck flipped over from the impact. Police say his blood alcohol level was triple the legal limit. Roberta Demmert died at a local hospital while her sister, Pamela Demmert, is recovering from serious injuries. Demmert was only 39 years old. A judge set Vineyard's bail at $200,00. He faces more than 30 years behind bars if convicted and will appear in court again at the end of the month.
