From the Author
It could have been any family that day, but it was my husband's and this is his story.


The unsettling story of a weekend camping trip gone awry and the drunk and high "wrong way mom" who drove four children to their deaths, also killing her and three others. A chronological look at the four hour drive that terrorized motorists destroyed three families and captivated the public.

The changing stories, the changing excuses, and the continuing search for the truth.
"She had contacted her brother two hours before to say she wasn't feeling well" NY State police conference (7/27/09)
"A drunk driver did not do this to your family," Daniel Schuler (9/1/09)


Two years of constant contradictions and fabrications have eluded the truth and added to the public confusion of the conflicting stories. Now read the information taken from actual police reports, witness statements, and investigators reports.
From the Inside Flap
A Message from Michael ... There is no greater pain than having lost my father and brother from the senseless act of a drunk driver. My love for my father and brother, Guy, will continue to be as strong as it has been my entire life. This book is not only about the horrific acts of Diane Schuler and the suffering that she has caused so many people but also about the added pain caused by those who fabricated stories about her actions that day. I was raised in an Italian-American family. My father taught me how important family is. I especially remember when he told me that my brother will "alwaysbe [my] brother" and that I should always be there for him--and that my brother would always be there for me. My brother was always there for me. In keeping the promise that I made to my father, I hope this book can in some way speak for my brother, Guy, and my father. They are two of the greatest people the world will ever have known.
Michael Bastardi Jr.

Was obsessed with this story and can finally make some sense out of it. So much loss and so little cooperation with the investigation. Not to mention the crazy excuses.  I think you have already found your answers.
