The sad thing is, I understand this is not the first incident the driver has been involved in. Of course you never know the entire story but the talk was that someone was killed in the last accident also. What does it take? My heart breaks for the families.

Yes, I do believe that IS true - the driver in this accident was nearly killed in another accident in which he was a PASSENGER. The driver in that accident did not survive, and because of this was mourned as a terribly tragic life cut short (rightfully so, any young life taken is a tragedy) rather than raked over the coals as a menace based on speculation and gossip alone.
Please, think before typing the next time - if you don't know, you don't know. Remember your manners (if you don't have anything nice to say? were you ever taught that rule as a child?) and leave it at that.

Thanks for driving by the memorial! But did you know derrick? I did! He was like my son! He was 21 and so were most of his friends so if they go there to have a beer with him, what is the problem with that? I drive most of them there and back and its one beer! As to the pot References, someone made a cross with pot leaves on it, that is that persons issue, Derrick didnt make it for himself! He was an awesome kid with a huge heart that died for no other reason except a punk kid wanted to show off and drive way too fast with faulty equipment!! Please dont judge unless you know what you are talking about thanks!!1

jake lee was a kid for parties and driving fast
he liked to jump kids with his friends, and now he is in jail. what happened was inevitable, the only question was when? And whos life he was going to take,his or the life of another. I still dont understand why he would endanger anothers persons life like he did, he knows what the out come could possibly be because, he was not more than 2 years ago, the victim in a terrible car accident leaving his friend dead. I would think that would have made him think about how dangerous a 2 ton machine really is, but i guess for some people, reality doesnt click until its to late, and as of now it is. i think a 36 month sentence is a little to short of a sentence, but maybe he will think twice about what HE DID, maybe he will face his own demons. Im sorry to the mother of Derrick, because i to know what it is like to lose a close family member, and i know it hurts, just know he is watching over you and you family

I know Jake and his family all two well....it is about time he suffers the consequences for his actions. Before anyone says I don't anything, I certainly do! Jake is always in trouble with the police. His Mother rakes everything under the table when it comes to Jake. Nothing is his fault...her words are "kids will be kids". Jake does't take responsibility for anything because his Mother doesn't make him. He has been kicked out of numerious homes. He even moved into another state to get away from Enumclaw. He got in trouble 1600.00 miles from enumclaw as well. What parents put there 16 year old up in his own apartment in another state 1600 miles away. A kid that dropped out of school and has no job. Give me a break!

First I want to start saying yes people may say "a punk kid" but for most I was no worse then your own child some maybe worse then me So maybe you should take a look at you own family structure while talking about me because I was no worse then 95% of kids in that town I just was the one that wrecked. May we talk about what happened with enumclaw kids and car even after I was gone. Secondly We'll let me tell you this I was a passenger in the vehicle in that said accident you talk about and yes also my best friend like in this one had also past away. And it was out of my control. I was told we will be good this car is bad ass when I said that we weren't hitting the corner right to make it around, an we're going to fast. And I was put in a coma and broke more bones then most could imagine and the effect that night and this one for that matter have on me on a daily bases are horrendous. The things I go and went thru then, now and forever I would never in my life wish upon anyone not even my worst enemy's. Yes I have made some bad decisions in my life but so has everyone else in this world it's just weather you have gotten caught. But I pay for everyone of those bad decisions I've made everyday of my life physically, mentally, and morally everyday I wake up. But also remember that the things you read on here are from reporters whom well there job isn't always to tell the truth and from angry & morning individuals that some thing said May not be exactly the truth in which have every right to be. But I mean why don't you come to the source ME because in which area would I have any reason to lie, everyone already hates me shit I've been getting threats of all kinds sense well the first accident I was in which again I was a passenger and was going and did go to prison regardless of what I said or how I felt so plz everyone tell me what reason I have to lie about anything that happened in eather of those night because trust me I know them very well I relive them everyday of my life. I still go to both grave and crash site on a regular bases and cry eyes out.

No one should feel sorry for you. I always knew that you would eventually go to prison someday.

You should of learned your lesson when you got in that 1st accident with John.

3 years wasn't enough. You're lucky that Washington has some of the shittiest laws in the country.

When I first saw you in high school, I could tell right away that you were a loser & a punk. You weren't very nice to me either.

You deserve to get all those death threats too. Keep them coming.

In my opinion, you'll always be a lowlife piece of shit.
