How drunk was he? His wife chose to get in the car with him when she might reasonably have thought he was drinking. Both neglegted their parental responsibilities, he by putting his children in the back of his car when he was drunk and her again by letting him.
I'm hope these deaths will trouble him for a long time.
People who kill themselves while drink driving I can cope with, removing stupidity from the gene pool in a darwin awards manner.
The bigger problem is that these days they usually get saved by the collection of safety features, crumple zones and airbags, but the pedestrian they hit is never so fortunate.
