So sad to hear of the death of 14 year old GW freshman Drew Morton. What a sad way to begin the school year and thoughts/prayers to his friends and family. I hope the other teen driver will be ok.

This is so very sad. I saw on the news site some of the facebook posts and they are saying the driver was a doctor's kid and he had stolen the car. How awful to think a 15 yr old probably has already made the biggest mistake of his entire life! I don't know how he will ever get thru this either. Terrible all the way around. That little 14 yr old was just the cutest guy. Really just a baby... I can't imagine what his family must be going through. I just know my heart aches for them.
wonder why

I agree with you, too, about kids being so spoiled. But, not sure if it's true or not, I did read some facebook posts that said the driver had stolen his father's car. Since it was before noon on Sunday this happened, just wondered if parents were in church or maybe gone somewhere??? I know we all make mistakes, but this one will have terrible consequences for that 15 yr old for the rest of his life. To do something wrong at such a young age and have a person lose their life because of it, wow, that's a really tough lesson to try to move on from. I can honestly say that I feel bad for everyone involved. I'm sure the driver never intended for this to happen. They probably were good friends who had spent the night with each other... he will need some counseling probably, and I hope he gets a lot of love and forgiveness from others. Of course, he also needs to pay for his actions. No one should get a free pass when something so tragic happens by one's own actions, young or not. Prayers for all...

You really have no freaking idea what you're talking about. You're either a stupid kid yourself or you've never raised children.

This could happen to the best of parents. As soon as scum like you see that a kid is driving a Lexus, you automatically enjoy some smug satisfaction in their troubles.

Have you heard? Karma's a bitch.

I read that, too, so if that's true, even if he "stole" their car (or didn't ask to use it this time), I would still guess they are going to be in a heap of trouble, too. I hope that isn't the case and it was just the kid making a dumb decision, because parents have to guide their children in the right way and make sure they know to abide by our laws. We, as the adults, have to set the right example, and if we were to allow our children to do things we know is against the law, like driving alone with only a permit, then we are guilty, too. Like I said, I hope this isn't what happened here. It's terrible either way, but if the parents were knowingly allowing their child to drive illegally, then ...... that's some bad parenting.

I'm sure you've heard a lot haven't you? I'll bet you make it a point to hear things don't you? And I doubt you have much regard for the subjects of your stupid, uninformed gossip either.

You all don't have much else to do in Cabin Creek do you?

completely inappropriate for you to say that - you don't know the family
You don't know the circumstances
They are all experiencing enough pain without someone like you making inappropriate comments

Umm sweetie I have two children and I would guarantee they wouldn't be in that situation, driving a stolen car & driving with just a learners. It's all how they're raised, I knew better than to do that when I was growing up! Get a grip and fucking get over yourself, you don't know shit either so don't run your fat ass mouth!! BITCH!!!

wow - with a mouth like that - I feel very sorry for your kids - what a role model.
Let's hope your children aren't ever in that situation - its very tragic.

Hey, I know you must be hurting about all this, but to put down people who live in a certain place, why would you do that? I didn't sleep much at all last night because of this tragedy... I saw this little 14 yr old on a video on YOUTUBE singing his heart out just a few months ago. He is such a cute little guy. Just a baby. And to know something so bad has happened to him at such a young age, well, I am heartbroken by it. I still don't think that gives me the right to put others down for whatever reason. People want to know what happened here and yes, gossip will be rampant. It's tragic for everyone involved. The driver, too, is just a kid, and his family is hurting, too, I'm sure. Right now, however, people who don't know them don't want to hear that! They want us to know that the 14 yr old is the one who paid the ultimate price and he will NEVER be able to live ANY KIND OF LIFE AT ALL. You have to understand that! I don't know any of these people, but my heart aches for both families and all the friends, too. We all make mistakes and sometimes the consequences are a little easier to pay than this one will be. Just try to be a little more understanding of others feelings, no matter where they live or where you THINK they might live, because your comment makes you look very "uppity" and "privileged"... You put a bunch of people down who live at Cabin Creek and I can't figure out why anyone would do such a thing? You think all the dumb people live at Cabin Creek? That's just sad, too.

I think we are all hurting about this situation but we need to stop pushing each others buttons here. I agree with everyone on here about different things. I understand where you and people like you, including myslef, want to know how this could happen. Did the parents know the driver had the car? Did they allow him to drive alone? I too want to know these things, just to have a better understanding of what happened and to, yes, maybe put some blame on someone to make us feel a little better for the kids. But, we all think and react differently to tragedies like this. People who know all these families are certainly going to want to defend them against ugly remarks and who knows? Maybe these are all very good people who, yes, spoil their children. WE ALL DO THAT, right? I mean, even as adults we still make mistakes and IF the parents allowed this child to drive illegally, they made a huge mistake. At the same time, they are all hurting immensely, I'm sure. Don't you agree? Like the other person said, what if it was you and your kid involved? Maybe you wouldn't allow your child to drive illegally, but you know kids do things we as parents don't allow... would you want people on here or anywhere to be saying bad things? We still love our kids and our family members even when they make terrible mistakes! Just try to ignore comments who are probably from friends of the families, if they upset you. It is understandable they wouldn't want us to make their hurt even worse...

a child is dead - another one will live with this horrible guilt for the rest of his life- obviously very poor judgement was used and it has resulted in tragedy
You are a parent ? Then you should know that these people are absolutely devastated. This is a parents worst nightmare. Think what you want - please don't put it on here. Just have sympathy and compassion for everyone involved

No one would put any stock in anything you say or think. What a potty mouth. I agree with the other poster, I feel sorry for your children. You obviously don't know much about the real world. So sorry to the families of both of these very young men.
