If you are going to take the time to report these stories and pride yourself in publishing them with accurate information then take the time to get your facts right. The police report concluded that Nevius reached speeds of up to 80 miles per hour, not 100. You may also want to take the time to mention Nevius' severe remorse which seems to be a crucial element of the article that you have failed to mention in the least.

You are right. That is a difference between what the police report may say (as we have no copy here to read) and what the media reported. However, does that negate or in any fashion diminish the fact that Mr. Nevius was obviously exceeding the legal speed limit when the accident occured?
You may also want to take the time to mention Nevius' severe remorse which seems to be a crucial element of the article that you have failed to mention in the least.
Is Mr. Bishop any less dead because Mr. Nevius shows remorse?

While it is undoubtedly true that Mr. Nevius feels some remorse, had he thought about the potential consequences while he was traveling at over 80 miles per hour, then the probability is that he would not have to worry about being remorseful, and Mr. Bishop would have been able to continue with his life.

Fact is, Mr. Nevius violated the law and in doing so an innocent individual lost his life. Trying to somehow diminish that by proclaiming the media didn't report exact details is weak, and simply not well founded.

No, Darryl Nevius' remorse does not excuse the fact that an innocent person is dead and yes he did violate the law and yes he is going to pay for the mistakes he's made, 11-23 months to be exact. The media, however became a vicious monster in this case, twisting facts and in many cases failing to mention many crucial details. For example, I have no intentions of slaundering Eric Bishop's name but he had no right to be on the roads that night because he had been drinking, reports from the corner can confirm this and secondly Mr. Bishop was making an illegal turn. Neither of these two things are an excuse, what Darryl Nevius did was wrong and I personally know that the actions he made that day haunt him and will haunt him every single day for the rest of his life. Simply not well founded and weak? Atleast I can take pride in knowing I took the time to find out the complete accurate story and passed no judgement whatsoever. Eric Bishop's death is a tragedy, an accident but we have to remember that everything happens for a reason.

Here are all the facts needed. Mr. Nevius was driving in access of 80 mph on a public road and not a closed race course, while displaying ZERO regard for anyone else on said road, which resulted in his vehicle hitting that of Mr. Bishop. Had he remotely been thinking about anyone aside from himself another individual would, without much rebuttable arguement, still have been alive that night.

Whether or not the speed was 100, 90 or 79 mph, the fact is that Mr. Nevius was violating the law and showing no regard for anyone else on the road. Saying the media twisted facts is, as previously stated, a very weak arguement. Ok, it was only 80 mph which is 15mph of the maximum legal limit in PA for Freeway travel. Where was he going is such a hurry?

It is interesting that you would attempt to cast the blame onto the victim here, and had Mr. Nevius been complying with the law, or even reasonable within its limits, then your arguement (provided the toxicolgy reports would indeed confirm your claim) might hold merit. However, the one glaring fact keeps rearing its head and that is, no matter how hard one tries to ignore it, that Mr. Nevius was speeding and showed ZERO regard for anyone aside from himself that were on that road.

Apparently you cannot read or maybe you just have an issue processing words through your head. Obviously you check this forum daily just so you have something to do with your pathetic life. You are a sad individual. Spend some time with real people and maybe just maybe you could see something beyond your own closeminded opinions. You honestly do not know what you're talking about. Have you ever driven a vehicle before?? If so, I'm sure you too are guilty of going 80mph atleast once in your sad life. Get a life. Everyone else who is actually involved in this tragic accident is moving on with theirs so maybe you should focus on your own life and mind your own buisness. I will not be replying anymore, I have a life and I will not waste it talking to a pathetic loser who sits online all day. I have so many better things to do and I am going to go out there and live, hey who knows maybe I'll even speed a little.

Not at all. It does appear that you have a serious issue with someone pointing out those pesky little things known as facts, especially when they contridict what your are attempting to portray.

[QUOTE] Obviously you check this forum daily just so you have something to do with your pathetic life.
Again your assumptions are, much like what else you have posted, incorrect. But then, when one can not defend their statements they resort to weak attacks on those who dare call them on it.
You are a sad individual. Spend some time with real people and maybe just maybe you could see something beyond your own closeminded opinions.
Just finished spending 16 hours with real people, who deal with individuals such as the one you seek to make out to be a victim.
You honestly do not know what you're talking about. Have you ever driven a vehicle before?? If so, I'm sure you too are guilty of going 80mph atleast once in your sad life.
Never driven with a total disregard for others on the highway, and yet again your assumption would be incorrect. Just because you seek to diminish the act by claiming others routinely commit the same offense does not make it so.
Get a life. Everyone else who is actually involved in this tragic accident is moving on with theirs so maybe you should focus on your own life and mind your own buisness.
You chose to post it here, in a public forum. Don't go and get all pissy now when someone does not buy your feel sorry for him attitude. Perhaps if you would spend a bit more time not posting things and then whining about it your proclamation of moving on would occur.
I will not be replying anymore, I have a life and I will not waste it talking to a pathetic loser who sits online all day. I have so many better things to do and I am going to go out there and live, hey who knows maybe I'll even speed a little.
No problem. Simple fact is that you posted something in a public forum, and can not handle the fact that someone actually questioned your post. As for speeding, it does not surprise me that you would have a disregard for the law, nor that you would proclaim it as some right.

You need to get your facts straight buddy Mr. Nevius was a good person and would have given the shirt off his back for someone evin if he didnt know them. You are just trying to look past the fact that Mr. Bishop did have a couple of drinks befor he drove and that he made an illegal turn so if you are looking at the fact that Mr. Nevius was breaking the law well you should look at the fact that Mr. Bishop was breaking 2 laws and im not trying to make Mr. Bishop look like a bad man because im sure he wasnt a bad person at all but you need to stop saying stuff about Darryl Nevius and just let it all go and forget about it

It is amazing that you seem to feel that Mr. Nevius is somehow the victim here. Fact is, regardless of what anyone else was doing, had Mr. Nevius not being doing in excess of 80 MPH the probability that Mr. Bishop would have still been alive that evening are increased 1000 fold, at a minimum.

Point in all this is really quite simple. He violated the law, and regardless of how hard you or anyone else tries to cast blame onto someone else, the result was that someone else died.

As for forgetting about it, when Mr. Bishops family forgets about Mr. Nevius actions that day, so will I.

Rot in jail, Darryl Nevius. You carelessly took the life of another human being, and have caused great pain for his loved ones. You got off easy with only a prison term. At least we know you won't kill anybody else in the next 23 months!

So he was going 80mph, and it is a busy road at times, althoguht this accident took place alte at night, correct? That is unexceptable, but there is a big difference in going 80mph and 100mph. I have done performance stuff to my car, and I race, and when on a track smaller then the carlisle pike, going 80mph is no big deal with a street car, so he was speeding, but that doesn't mean he was totally out of control and reckless. If mr bishop did sumthing wrong such as making an illegal turn or was intoxicated, then it is both parties fault. In this case though Nevius was breaking the law more than Bishop. 80mph isn't that fast at all. Another thing is whenever something like this happens everyone blaims it on street racers, not everyone who modifies their car and goes out at night is a street racer, I go out with friends for something to do, and it's better than sitting around doing drugs. There are just some people who disreguard the law to show off, and in this case he is paying the consequences, and so is an innocent bystander, a bystander who from what i have read should have been driving or doing what they were doing.

80 mph is at least 25 over the posted limit on the Pike, so trying to say that it is not fast just does not wash. He was speeding and driving recklessly and as a result killed another innocent person.

All the whitewash attempts aside, those are the facts. All the attempts to color the actions otherwise are indicitive of immaturity at its finest.

You say you have gone 80 on a race track and it is not fast. I would agree depending upon the track and vehicle, having done some track racing myself. However, going 80 in a 45 is not only fast, but reckless no matter how good a driver one is.

Again, his actions and his actions alone led to the death of an innocent person and he is and should pay for it.

Darryl Dear;
You got off pretty lucky this time.23 months WOW! Hopefully you learn a very valuable lesson about taking an innocent & precious life. No one deserves to die, especially the way he did. UNEXPECTIVELY! I am real sorry for that person family. Darryl you need to get help when you get out. I feel for you in a way to. You probably are really different when you are not intoxicated. I think GOD gave you a 2nd chance in life. But for the innocent person who died, he is with the Lord and being well taken care of. I have no clue who anyone is here, but I wish the best for everyone.
