Tom wasn't a heavy drinker,but as the day wore into night, he decided to have a few beers with somefriends, and later, a few beers more with some strangers he met in a barin Concord. That's the last thing he remembers about that night.
Tom's next memory — beingrolled along on a hospital gurney. A state trooper informed him that he,Tom Boyle — family man and successful businessman, had just killed hispassenger by driving into a Concord snowplow at 100 miles per hour. Tom'simmediate response? He didn't know anyone was in the car.
At his trial, he was sentencedto 4-8 years for manslaughter — a sentence he is still serving. He hasalso taken seriously the notion of paying a debt to society. For the pastfew months has been telling his story to large groups of students at schoolsand colleges.
This is a story of makingall the right decisions in life, save one — and losing everything. Andall in Just One Night.
