Thoughts and prayers go to her family, and friends. I hope this coward will be unable to think of anything, or anyone else but Shannon, and her family for the rest of his life.

I work in the insurance industry handling commercial injury claims (at the catastrophic injury level). This may sound crass or cynical, but the situation doesn't surprise me. It would amaze people to see how vapid, shallow and self centered the society has gotten, especially those under 30. My prayers go out to the passengers & their families.

What a terrible terrible accident, if this young (Wagner) was not under the influence of anything, why did he leave the scene, and wait 19 hours to seek medical help. And even worse leave his dying passengers, "what a friend" if you didn't do anything wrong or have anything to hide why run. Yes he should face a multitude of charges including vehicular homicide. What a shame these children will never see their mother again. Anita M. Cleveland Ohio

What a shame, my prayers go out to this woman's family. I hope the court system throw the book at this Wagner, that will not bring Shannon back, but he needs to pay. I totally agree with Catholic lite on the direction our society has taken.

He couldnt seek medical help until the alcohol was out of his system, otherwise, they would charge him with yet another crime. Leaving the scene is alot lesser charge than DUI.

My condolences go out to the family of Shannon. I have known Shannon since I was 9, and she was 10 years old. She, and her sister were my first new friends, when my family moved to the portage county area. You will be missed.

I am brought to tears over this, I am deeply saddened for the loss off shannon, and my heart goes out to her children. But i know Brad Wagner and I am proud t call him my friend.What he did was foolish and unresponsable. But he is a good man and an even better fater ann friend. Last year Brad Wagner helped me pull my brother from a terrible accident and then went to my mother's house and told her what had happened, he has always had my back and has been there for me, I love this man like a brother. But desperate men do desperate things,and I know that this is eating at Brad more than anyone can imagine. My prayers to Terry, Brennan,Bryce,Shane and Faith, the three girls and everyone involved.

Although I would like to see Brad Wagner punished to the fullest extent of the law for his carelessness, irresponsibility and cowardly actions, for those of us old enough to remember, Ted Kennedy had a similar automobile accident many years ago and literally got away with murder. Why would anyone think it will be any different for Mr. Wagner?

You people think it's ok to leave the seen of and accident and leave your friends to die. What if it was u in that backseat struggling to breath trying to move, crying for help, just think of those things. Brad Wagner is a chump, not a good man at the time of this. Many people have done good things and then turned into serial killers. This Brad should be put to death. No excuses. Punk should of took responsibility for his actions. Not run cause he was drunk of high. My prayers go out to Jerry Damron and the rest of his family.
