    1. Voters need to express their disgust directly to prosecutors, on their Facebook Pages and in letters to editors as they live in Ivory Towers and only run into the public when campaigning. This is very typical.

    2. He comes from money and lives with mommy and daddy. No repercussions for his actions.

    3. Todd Pivec has diminished or ruined many lives. Most of which are not in any public record. Only those effected by and witness to Todd Pivec’s life know the negative impact he has had on countless others.
      Daddy’s money and influence have allowed Todd Pivec to be a scourge upon the people around him throughout his life. This was inevitable.

  1. White man probably big political donor. I thought I saw the Sun said this accident occurred in a vehicle owned by his employer. If that is the case and his employer knew anything about his long history shame on them. It is bad enough people drink and drive but there were so many warnings before some poor person got roasted in their car. Sadly it seems that the drunk always survives and the other person always dies. Prayers for the family of the victim – I hope they find peace and justice.

    1. It appears from his LinkedIn profile that he owns the company and the vehicle unless he has a side employment.

    2. Mommy and Daddy own the company-Todd Pivec has no clue about life or having a business and now someone died because of that family’s ignorance.

  2. I hate to comment twice – but out of curiosity I looked up what the houses were like on Spyglass Ct. $700-$800k. No wonder he can afford the best lawyers. And he has also been pinged for domestic violence in the past as well. A real “great human being.”

    1. Look up his parents Dave and Sharon pivec…he has been bailed out of trouble bc of his parent’s wealth for years….they start companies for their kids who have no idea how the real world works….he killed another human being so no amount of money should get him out of this…he should sit in jail and think about the lives he shattered because of his choices. My condolences to the victims family.

    2. He comes from money and lives with mommy and daddy. No repercussions for his actions.

  3. The judges, especially Robert Cahill, as ell as the parents have blood on their hands. He should have never been driving. He ran away from rehab, he never worked and never had one consequence to anything. He terrorized an ex girlfriend. Nothing. And now a man is dead.

    1. Each of the States Attorneys that have come into contact with Pivec also deserves to be held responsible. Instead of protecting the public, they facilitate these career DUI drivers and addicts. Instead of wasting time with a ‘vigil’ that energy should be applied to raising hell with the prosecutors.

  4. From an online search, it looks like Pivec’s initial appearance in Worcester County court will be on 8/14. I’ve been keeping an eye on this case because what I saw on that evening was quite unsettling…

    In my estimation, I was driving in the area about a minute or two after the fatal crash, if even that long. I saw the victim’s vehicle on fire right in front of the Satellite Coffee place, as pictured here, and an officer running towards it with an extinguisher. Then as I carefully moved further south on Coastal Highway, I also saw the Lexus stopped at that pole.

  5. OMG, I can’t stand this PIVEC guy!! Thank you for trying to enlighten us about all of the lousy deals the politicians have given in to with this idiot.
    …” Pivec defecated on himself at some point during the incident…” … good, keep the area cleaned out so someone can …

  6. Total piece of poop! He should be in jail from the previous two domestic violence cases. Unreal, a drunk, a woman beater and a murderer! Go to prison and stay in prison. Society will not miss you!
