"DWI: Dying While Intoxicated", Way to Die #618, is the fifth death to be featured in "Today's Special: Death", which aired on August 1, 2011.


Tina, Shelly and Jessica were three divorcees who enjoy drinking and smoking. If the booze ran out, they take turns driving to the liquor store to get some more liquor. It was Jessica's turn, but Jessica can't drive her car because a recent D.U.I arrest resulted in her car being impounded and her license being suspended. She has only one choice: drive her mower. As she sets out, destroying every lawn ornament in her path and blowing a stop sign at 4 mph(6.4 km/h), a police officer was hot on her trail and the way Jessica could escape is go off the road. The plan worked, except that the mower hit the rock, making her fall off the mower. Jessica is too stunned and drunk to react in time, at which point the mower turns back towards her and proceeds to kill her by scraping her to death. By the time the police officer arrives and is about to arrest her, all he can do is watch in shock of Jessica's death.

"By the time the cop arrived, Ms. DUI was... DOA."
