Hey Josh, are you the Josh with a web site business, if so we've met several times?? Either way, sorry to hear the news man! Glad to know you're ok for the most part.

I have driven that car and it IS a rental car, not that it was rented at that time.

I don't care if he was rich, poor or middle class the driver got what he brought upon himself.

If you drive a fast car please know that there are race tracks available in the DFW area where you can drive at high speeds, away from normal drivers, bicyclists, and pedestrians who are just trying to get home from work, or to pick up some groceries, or enjoying a nice stroll. I understand the thrill of fast cars, I've had many of them including two very fast modified Porsche Turbos, and I did study high performance driving techniques extensively, but even a very well trained driver is not perfect. And most average drivers are not very well trained, but everyone thinks they are a great driver. Look at these idiots who ride our bumpers like they want to give us a love tap. And if alcohol or drugs were involved then that would be really stupid. Luckily no one outside the 512HP all wheel drive Lambo was hurt, and it is pretty clear that those involved have paid a high price, and I'm not talking about the once beautiful Lamborghini Gallardo.

NO one would every deserve what happened. If you truly believe that may God have mercy on you.

These young men have parents, childrend, brothers and sisters. The pain goes many levels deep. May they have peace!

No one does deserve that but his consequence was of his own choosing. You can't expect to be invinsible if you're driving like an idiot. Yes, a brother, child, or loved one but one who made a big mistake by ignoring the law. There is a consequence for each of our actions and his was a terrible one but it was in his hands to choose which way things en

ded up. He has no one to blame but himself.
It must be nice to assume that you know all of the details and all of the answers. You have no idea what you are talking about. Real concerned citizen.......... you don't know.

A few years have passed. The heart break is and will always be in my heart. I pray for Donnie and his family. I pray for Josh.

This is and always will be overwhelming to me. I love both of these young men.

If you were not present please hold your judgement and leave that to God. May we all make the best of what happens to us and use it to better the world.

The young man that was driving will forever have this on his heart. I would like to say something profound but I can only feel the tears running down my checks. Love is all I have.
