One victim was driven to Boston and the other to Worcester. That certainly gives me a lot of confidence in the abilities of Emerson, Lowell General, Lahey, Nashoba and St. Joes in Nashua to treat seriously injured victims. Its scary that we don't have a local level 1 trauma center. I wonder how having to drive 30 minutes or more (think rush hour in Boston) affects probability of survival?

Death at any age is an awful tragedy, but to lose a 16 year old child is exceptionally tragic. Let's focus on the grief of the family involved and not on the type of car. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time.

That's another one of those important questions that you need answered. But if your worried, I'm sure they are taking his death pretty hard.

it all has to do with the car. You put power under the foot of a kid and an accident is going to happen. Condolences to the family but a charger 17 years old come on.
Find something else to blame it on. You sound silly. I know 2 teens who died in a car crash....speeding....and it wasnt a charger. What gives?

I'm sure figuring out what to do with the car is the last thing from their mind. Stop being an idiot.

Don't you think the car and the drivers inexperience together was a factor?(excpet for drugs and alcohol) Would you buy your teenage son or daughter a muscle car? I sure wouldn't till he/she has some driving experience. The Charger is an extrememly quick car, and you don't have a "feel" of the road.

What a horrible, terrible trgedy. To veer off the road and slam into a tree and tip over! Goodness. What will it take to repair that beautiful car?

Just saying having a fast car increases the chances for speeding! Obviously they lost control of the car! I have a 19 year old daughter and that's my biggest fear! I couldn't image.

I don't blame you one little bit for worrying. Do you have any idea how much they charge to fix crashed up cars? It's ridiculous.

I completely agree, but as a teen, all of us who got our first car, sooner or later, floored it to see how fast it can go, be it an '84 escort or '08 charger. It's just a tragic accident that could not have been forseen, because of owning a charger
