Sorry to hear such a sad story. I ran across L.S.D years ago when I was a young and dumb kid. Now I wonder why and thank the good lord that I did not get killed or hurt. Once again, my prayers to the friends and family.

After reading all of the comments from another site - mostly from friends and family - it is heart-breaking to imagine why such a "smart" 25 year old would perform such a careless act - drunk or not - why don't people think before they change the lives of hundreds of people. My heart goes out to the two innocent drivers who hit Luke - this will, no doubt, change their lives forever. I feel sorry for Luke's loving family and friends. This would kill me if my son had done such a stupid thing and died because of it. How sad and senseless !!!

It amazes me how judgemental people are as if they have never made a snap decision without thinking it through (especially after having a few drinks). Instead of sitting on our high horses maybe we should pray for Luke's family and friends as they struggle with this hard time. This incident should remind us how short life is and that instead of judging someone we should reach out to that person and/or their family!

Dear Another Voice,
you make me sick. This world is a sad place because of people like you! I'm sure you are 100% perfect so that gives you the right to say something negative about Luke even if you didn't know him. One day I hope you feel the pain we are feeling of loose such an amazing guy like Luke then some jerk writes a comment like you did. Grow up!

Who in the world do you think you are? Is your life really so sad and pathetic that you have nothing better to do than post negative comments about the tragic loss of young man? And how dare you mock the intelligence of Luke. He was a highly intelligent young man who made a mistake. That's it. And please, please, do not feel sorry for, or pray for, his family and friends. Rather, take your disingenuous sympathy and shove it!! Your despicable comments do nothing more than make the grieving process more difficult for those who truly do care. I hope that you feel good about yourself. Now please, go jump off a bridge!! Preferably a very high one.

My heart goes out to everyone hurt by this as well. I searched for this story because I witnessed the aftermath of the accident. I was literally 10 or 12 cars behind the burgundy Mercedes GL that hit him. I drove by at 2mph right alongside Luke Jones as he layed there while a girl stood next to him hysterically saying "hello?? hello??"... I haven't been able to get the image out of my head and I feel so bad for the two drivers that were involved in this.

to all the people complaining about "Anothervoice"...

There is nothing "negative" about FACTUALLY stating that running across LSD is a stupid thing. Is it a "smart" choice to run across the roadway? Exactly...

Just because some of the people defending this sort of immaturity are overly sensitive to the fact that the strong survive in this world and weak get run over (twice - brilliant), doesn't mean we have to be all sad about this ding dong failing at life. He obviously was a malicious, selfish and careless person by his actions.

What is there to miss from this guy that chose to get killed other than pristine video of him getting crushed underneath two cars. I'm sorry but in this digital age, if you kill yourself, try to be near a CCTV camera so we can all watch it for a few minutes then just go on with our day.

Who runs across LSD anyways? What a douchebag...

One less retard in the world... Actually thats not fair, you never hear of retarded people running across the street. Why? Because they know better...

What a tool...

Sweaty420- thanks for your comment.
Yes I know what a douchebag is... Its someone who runs across a busy street, is selfish and obviously slow enpught to get crushed by TWO ( hilarious bonus there ) cars.
Hope that helps. Oh and don't flatter yourself. We would never be married... You can't even articulate ( look that word up loser ) common English in your posts as well as complete your one thought ( you posted twice in the same subject ).
You sound like there are a couple of screws loose in your head.
Quit being a douchebag and stay off the message boards okay?
See ya douchebag...
Better yet go run across LSD.(wink,wink)
