The worst moment of Joseph R. Biden’s life — the 1972 car crash that killed his wife and baby daughter — has drawn renewed attention over a falsehood that the former vice president repeated for years: that the other driver was drunk.
From 2001-07, Mr. Biden indicated at least twice that the tractor-trailer driver who hit his wife’s car had been drinking, even though the state official who oversaw the investigation and the driver’s daughter said that wasn’t true.
During the 2008 presidential campaign, Pamela Hamill, the daughter of driver Curtis C. Dunn, called on Mr. Biden to apologize publicly after he told a crowd that her father “drank his lunch” before the accident, according to a 2008 article in the Newark [Delaware] Post.
“A tractor-trailer, a guy who allegedly — and I never pursued it — drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch, broadsided my family and killed my wife instantly and killed my daughter instantly and hospitalized my two sons,” Mr. Biden said in 2007.
In a 2001 speech at the University of Delaware, he referred to an “errant driver who stopped to drink instead of drive” and “hit my children and my wife and killed them,” according to a 2008 report in NewsBusters, citing a 2001 “Inside Edition” report.
Mr. Biden apparently stopped making the claim after a burst of media attention.
In a January article in Politico, Ms. Hamill said that Mr. Biden called her to apologize following a 2009 CBS report on the discrepancy.
“He apologized for hurting my family in any way,” she said. “So we accepted that — and kind of end of story from there.”

BIDEN IS A BULLSHITTER. He’s the type of BS’er you can find most nights sitting at your neighborhood bar.
Biden is a reprehensible man.
That is exactly the word I have used to describe him. He has done nothing of significance his whole public life. And has gotten ahead by being a professional bullshitter. A talentless, mediocre man who has made millions by being able to bs his way through life.
In MANY ways.
Biden is an evil man. Would not surprise me one bit if his wife’s car was tampered with to somehow cause it to run in front of the truck.
Same thoughts as to his sons death.
Hunter is an evil bastard just like dad so they have worked nicely together.
There is a behind the scenes war going on, between the Harris and Biden camps, each throwing mud at the other. Kind of fun to watch, frankly.
Truly despicable. This episode has for years defined Biden in my mind. He is a graceless, opportunistic sadist.
Everybody knows he is a bullsh*tter. Those who ignore it are the problem. From his family to voters,I never understood how this complete scum of the earth prospered.
Ruined that poor innocent man
Such low life’s
With MADD ramping up with TV movies in the early 1980’s Biden knew he was politically wed to the issue forever.
He is a habitual liar from way back.
Joe’s Dad was a successful used car salesman.
Biden is a lying dog face pony soldier poser who has always lied throughout his life.
RE: Truly despicable.....He is a graceless, opportunistic sadist.
And he has a bad side, too.

Really? It seems to me that both of these Communists impale themselves with their own swords.
Or perhaps she intentionally pulled out in front of the truck.
Joe Biden plagiarist:
News report from back when they weren’t so much in the tank.
And then there is this side of Biden:
