It must hurt the Leonards ever worse to know it was their daughter Adrian Leonard driving, who killed her sister!

Living in Carroll County and seeing what this has done to the community, and to all who knew the girls who were killed, I hope that Ms. leonard realizes exactly what she has done and the impact this will have on the families and friends of the young lives she took. I also hope that she will find peace with herself having to live with the fact that she was acting illegally and in return committed three counts of vehicular manslaughter.

These people that have left comments don't realize the pain that both Adrian and her mom must be in. I can't believe that you guys want to get on here and point fingers and throw slurs at this family in their time of sorrow. You are the sad ones. My dad grew up in Carroll County and knew these girls parents and grand parents. They weren't bad kids. They just made a mistake. If you don't think you've made mistakes, you're a liar. Look at what you just did. You pointed fingers and that could cause more problems for this family. I WAS A TEENAGER ONCE. I MADE MISTAKES! Just like these girls, I have to live with them for the rest of my life

I think you people need to get a grip Accidents happen it could have easily been any one of us that ran into a vehicle or something no one does these things on purpose she will have a hard enough time dealing with this for the rest of her life without you adding to the pain.As teenagers and parents of teenagers there is no point in your life that you can look back and say you wish you had not of done something or let your kid do something you weren't to sure about.

Okay for one... this was an ACCIDENT!!!!!! A HUGE ACCIDENT!!!! and you know what! you have no idea what that was like!!! watching your friends cry for weeks!! we were all so upset! you dont even know half of it! They were our friends, and they died!!! how in the world would that make you feel!?! Do you think that if it was someone that you knew personally and they died... and the person who was driving or was with them at the time lived, do you think you'd hold it against them and put them down about it for the rest of their lives??? Would you call them murderers?? This actually really hurts me that anyone would say something like this... it hurts me and a bunch of other students at carroll county who read this... Andria is not a murderer... she's not... she never will be... God obviously had a bigger plan for Ashley... and yea we cant take it back but there are things that people do every day, that we call accidents that they cant take back either... dont call her a murderer because she isnt.. and dont say that it wasnt an accident if you dont know.. I'm not trying to sound extremely rude, but that really hurts I know that everyone is entitled to their own opinion sure you can say what you feel but your words cut like knives.... Murder is when someone kills others purposly because they think that they have a reason to.. an accident is where something happens unexpectedly and in this case, three people died and it was an accident, it was not planned out or anything.. so murder is not the word... an accident it definately was...

how do you know it was called murder?? were you there?? No you werent!!! She already has to live with the accident every day of her life that is enough punishment for anyone in this world she lost her sister and her friends that day... And the next day she was found at the scene of the accident in ball crying her eyes out if that's not enough punishment... what is?? She's already hurting from the time that she wakes up untill the time that she goes to bed everyone who keeps talking all this crap needs to shut up cause she already knows that she messed up she doesn't need everyone else reminding her of that day. Everyone needs to stop and think about how she's feeling and stop thinking about themselves because I've only heard her name a couple times and I already know that she's feeling like crap from that day

I think it could be construed as murder... This happened a year ago. One kid is in a coma, another in a mental hospital. The driver didn't have a license, knew she shouldn't drive, so I would defiantly say it was a murder, even if it was an "accident".

But there are consequences for the stupid things we do in life. When three kids are killed, and you drove the car without a license, then who should be punished?

Now, I don't think the young lady should be, or should have been, given the death penalty, or given life in jail, but I believe she should do some time.

to dawn and bucky. You two need to get a clue. What if it was you that did this? Would you want people to say that you are a murderer? I dont think so. It was a terrible accident that I do agree she needs to be punished for but not because it was murder but because she did not have a license and they all knew what they were doing. She did not force anyone to go with her. This is terrible what happened but we cant change it. So think before you open your dumbass mouths.
