This young mam who was quiet and kind would have been a senior at Tamaqua High this year.
Our hearts go out to each and every student in the class of 2009.
With deep sympathy to his family

So sorry for the loss of the young man. From the report it sounds like he pulled out in front of the truck. Irregardless, I really feel for the boy's friends and family as well as truck driver and crew as well.
so sad

Eric was a very kind person. A quiet and hard working boy who smiled all of the time. His poor family. What a very sad story. It is so awful when bad things happen to good people.

I live in Northwest schuylkill. Its a pity how fast these trucks travel on rural roads. I can only imagine how fast he was going on 309!
Same with the coal trucks! They got this macho attitude that if you dont move, they'll make ya move out of the way for them!
geesh

What a shame, sad tragedy. My honest opinion, 16 yr olds should not be driving, that is very young to drive. In Jersey you can't drive alone until you're 17, not that that's any better but 16 is way too young to be behind the wheel of a car.

He was 17. The Morning Call made a mistake. At this point, all that matters is a wonderful young man is dead and his family will never be the same. May God bless them all.

He was a young man in my daughters class. She is very upset along with many others.

Last year a young football player lost his life who was due to graduate. The children are all still gieving that loss. Another empty seat at graduation this year will not be easy.

If you are the praying type please keep the Class of 09 in your prayers.
