To comment on such a tragedy you obviously know nothing about, you should feel ashamed with yourself. If you knew anything, you would know that the sister happend to be on her way home when she saw the loss occur. Immediately after, she called her parents as she was trying to help her brother. What amazes me about this site is how many individuals are on here that clearly know nothing about the family or tragedy that occured. It is so easy to try and place blame on others when there is no real fault or answer to why Derek passed. This clearly was an accident, hense the name itself. On this site the people defending Derek and the family are clearly the individuals AND children who know him personally. Before judging all the facts should be gathered. Reading a newspaper article is not gathering the facts. Let the family and friends be and grieve in peace. In addition, keep in mind that this was a child who had an excellent childhood and loving family. Derek was a talented individual with a big heart. Many people on this forum who keep reposting non-sense is not making the situation better and are looking like morons who know nothing about the loss. People need to stop taking the time to repost garbage on this site and simply pay their respects or say nothing at all. There is no one to blame for this loss except the arrogant individuals on this site. To all of his young friends that I can see tryping on here and defending Derek; you are the people that mean something to him, not the other a**holes on this site.

i am one of derek and george's freind's i live about 3 blocks from derek's house and in case all of you morons want to know the real story behind this before you make heartless comments about it here it is. Derek bought his own atv and always rode it behind his house racing on streets was rare, george had jus bought his and had not been riding on the street. They were both wearing helmets, They were not racing at the time of the crash george was ahead of derek and the wet road caused him to skid out and hit the sign in which time his helmet flew off and he flew off the quad into a tree breakin 16 out of his 18 ribs, collapsing both lungs and causing severe brain swelling he died but was revived, but it was too late he was brain dead they pulled the plug on him and donated his organs to save other lives. So to all you heartless people now you know the story and we will all miss him and i don't understand why you people have to desecrate his memory you didn't know him what gives you the right
Guess he went out on the street illegally one time too many

Some 17 year old ace in Smithtown just crossed a yellow line and head-oned a van with mom and child, which should take some of the heat off this 17 year old ace who only killed himself.

Maybe if he waited to ride the thing in Vermont instead of doing it here illegally he would still be alive. This is his Parents fault. Hope they are real proud.
Kids will be kids. You can't blame his parents for this one. You can't control a 17 year old, they are going to do what they want to. You are a terrible person, I hope something like this happens to you and you will have to read about it like I have to.

I know I am always impressed to hear a teenager has purchased a multi-thousand dollar vehicle with his 'own' money. After school jobs must pay better than a few years ago.
Derek worked long and hard to earn his money... Shut your face.

His sister wasn't home, she and her boyfriend were passing by at the exact moment it happened and the both of them had to witness what happened. You should be ashamed of yourself. You are being cruel and showing that you have no compassion. I hope you get into a car wreck on a rainy day and pass so everyone can blame your family for not stopping you. Go do something productive with your life.

TO THE FAMILY OF DEREK. I READ ALL THE ARTICLES ON YOUR LOVING SON. I CAN ONLY PRAY FOR YOUR FAMILY AND FOR DEREK. ITS A HORRIBLE TRAGERY AND THE PAIN WILL REMAIN FOREVER. I WISH WE CAN ALL TAKE THESE **ATV'S** AWAY FROM OUR CHILDREN AND KEEP THEM OFF OF THEM BUT THE KIDS LOVE THEM AND DONT EVER THINK ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN TO THEM. KIDS HAVE NO FEAR AND THEIR JUST OUT FOR FUN. ALL I WANT TO SAY IS ITS NO ONES FAULT AND ITS NOT DEREKS FAULT , IT WAS AN ACCIDENT AND THE CRUEL PEOPLE OUT THERE WITH THOSE HORRIBLE COMMENTS NEED TO PRAY TO GOD THAT THIS NEVER HAPPENS TO THEM. NO ONE KNOWS THE PAIN UNTILL THEY WALK THE SHOES OF A GRIEVING MOM OR DAD. I AM WALKING THE SHOES ALSO, I ALSO LOST MY LOVING SON PETER LUCENTI JR. DUE TO A ATV ACCIDENT LAST YEAR IN WEST BABYLON HE WAS ONLY 20, AND I KNOW THE PAIN. I WILL PRAY FOR PEACE IN YOUR FAMILY JUST LIKE EVERYONE PRAYS FOR ME AND MY FAMILY. YOU WILL NEVER RECOVER FROM THIS TRAGERY BUT YOU HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT AND TRYIN ACCEPT IT. ITS VERY HARD AND IT TAKES FOREVER SO I WILL KEEP YOU IN MY HEART, YOU & YOUR SON DEREK AND YOUR FAMILY. GOD BLESS!! LOVE ALWAYS PETEY'S MOM

As to respect, go look at the post on the kid killed by a train. I can think of no reason to 'respect' someone who killed themself being stupid and breaking the law.

Ok. Ive lost many many of loved ones in my life it does happen. There is no way you can blame the parents. The Kids dont think at what they are doing before they do them. Just like everyone Says, teenagers these days think that they are invisible and that nothing could happen.. And yet again they are wrong. I do send my sympothy to the family of Derek, and I do know what they are going thru. Like I said ive lost many people doing stuff that they werent supposed to do.. RIP Derek. And Im sorry to hear about it

so guy.

yea and you dont think that i have guilt...not only about not calling mom and dad to tell them but that i was at the top of the road that couldve been the way home...and maybe i was in the way??? or that i told the doctor to focus on his body but he had a helmet on and i didnt see when it came off and the reason he died...is bc the brain injurie that possibly couldve been fixed if i had realized it came off at the impact of the tree...

i held my brother in my hands not knowing what was going on..sickened...i lost my best friend, my sister lost her baby brother(and i know my sister would have called them if it was her and not me)..and my parents lost their son. We all have a lot of guilt and a lot of anger...and ontop of that...we lost a peice of us.

i appriciate your input.

the Ideal of giving them a place to ride is the best ideal. Wearing proper saftey equipment is another. I ride atv's all the time and me and my wife have had this discussion before,If I am riding and something terrible like this happens. Just remember that I was doing what I liked to do, and to remember that I loved her. I'm sorry for the loss of a child. I would hate to think of losing mine. But I do remind them when we ride to be careful not to do anything stupid while they're riding, because there will be alot of pain to go with their mistake.

Kelsey, this is your cousin Amber's best friend, Kait. No one blames you. You shouldn't blame yourself. From the few hours I spent at your house with your family and Derek 2 summers ago, I can tell that if he wanted to do something, nothing you said or did was going to change that. Don't beat yourself up just because ignorant people who don't know Derek think they have the authority to speak on things.

What a tragedy. I know the Porebski Family and can't believe this happened. They are a good family and George is a good kid. I am so sorry for both families to have to go through something like this. You are all in my prayers.
George Porebski is not a good kid at all, he is a dirtbag and he will get his.

George Porebski is a total dirtbag, he has no moral character whatsoever. His parents are criminals. Maria Porebski was just indicted in New York for Grand Larceny. Tad Porebski aka Tadeusz Porebski aka Jan Pluta is on the run. Check out the FB page Tad Porebski and the FB page Maria Porebski. There are links on the FB pages to articles showing that the three of them have been committing crimes since 2001.
