Jason Kidd's Crash Car

Jason Kidd's Wrecked Car
This is what happens when you drink and drive and crash into a light pole ... allegedly.

Jason Kidd was lucky to emerge from this 2010 Cadillac Escalade with his life after his early morning collision in the Hamptons on July 15. The photo was taken by our friends at the New York Daily News.

As we previously reported, Kidd was arrested for driving while intoxicated following the crash.

In the hours leading up to the crash, Kidd was partying at a club and appeared so drunk, he had to be carried out of the place.

For some reason, he got behind the wheel ... and drove into a telephone pole.

After the crash, Kidd's lawyer released a statement saying, "Jason has pleaded not guilty to a DWI charge and awaits further court proceedings."

The only thing he apparently hit harder than that pole was his ex-wife. That's no telephone pole he hit, he musta ran into Kim K's ass or Kanye's teeth to do that kind of damage.

Nice friends this guy got,take him out of the bar drunk and then say go a head and let him drive...I would not have anything to do with those kinds of friends again if I was him. Even though he was wrong , even more so were his dudes and the bar people for letting him go and drive.

I blame his friends more then him. Once you're drunk you don't know what the hell you're doing.His friends, instead of advising him not to drive should've taken his keys and forbid him to drive. Call him a cab or have someone else drive him home. The bartender should've cut him off long ago if he had to be carried out of the club.Most of us that drink have sometime or another taken that one drink too many. Real friends would not have let him drive. Those were probably his friends while he was buying the drinks. They sound like the type that were probably laughing at how drunk he was while he was driving away.

What kind of friends would let someone who had been drinking and was clearly heavily intoxicated as Jason Kidd was get behind the wheel and watch them drive off!

Anyone know why this is a DWI and not a DUI? Is there a difference? Or is it just the term they use in New York?

Good thing he was driving a damn bus and not a regular size car like normal people. Escalades are absolutely ridiculous, and I'm not even some crazy environmentalist.
