Honestly all of you guys should be ashamed of yourselves!! Someone is grieving the death of a son, and the death of a friend. The boy already I'm sure feels terrible about it and here you all are saying he is stupid, everyone and I mean everyone makes mistakes. Some may just be bad but honestly nobody knows what happened unless you're god and you know what happened. Seriously grow up and shut your mouths!!! Plus Cody can have a bake sale! Maybe he has to pay for damages of the car, or maybe he has a hospital bill you do realize after a car accident to that extent they take you to the hospital, honestly grow up. Cody and the rest of the families are in my prayers.

Kaitlyn you stupid whore first of all I noticed whaqt you said cody would have never tried to beat that train if he knew it would have hurt a friend, umm funny to me is that he and no one else should try to beat a treain regardless if they know they would hurt or kill someone. Alos no I don't listen to my music loud when doing something really important. Also contrary to popular belief when you are 16 years old you are not a kid you supposed to be grown I know I was when i was that age. No it can't happen to anyone you stop at an intersection several feet before getting to it and look both ways that is not hard to do I learned it when I was a little kid. And yes I can comment on it and it is my business and everyone elses business because when you make a mistake it's peoples business when it can possibly hurt other people. Driving crazy puts the general public in danger and when you mistake does that then yes people should comment and talk about it. and the aintscared perosn telling me why don't I get my ass on those tracks and see if I can beat a train I wouldn't be stupid enough to to do anything other than give trains the utmost respect. All of you who say no ones business and what Iam saying is mean. As I said when you make a mistake that hurt the general public several times a year then yes it is the publics business. And oh what Iam say8ing is mean consider how he was driving that shows how sensitive he is to the general publics safety.

There are no trees blocking that crossing. If you STOP, LOOK BOTH WAYS AND LISTEN, you can cross it safely each time. As everyone else does. There are clearly signs that it's a railroad crossing. The crossings aren't dangerous, just the people not respecting them are. We have drilled this in our kids heads, these trains can't stop. RESPECT THEM!!!

I know the boys and their families. In fact I'm from Tuckerman. I was told by one of the volunteer firefighters who ACTUALLY worked the scene that they saw the ENGINEER'S (the person who was driving the train) report that he wrote for the accident. He reported that they were in fact trying to beat the train. It doesn't surprise me because those boys were always up for a good time and always done crazy things. I just wish that Cody would be honest about it but I can understand why he wouldn't be. I'm not starting crap. I'm stating facts. I've put my name on here, I'm not being cold hearted, and I am from Tuckerman so there will be no point in trying to say I'm starting drama or spreading lies. The cameras from the train were taken last Tuesday and are being reviewed. If the engineers statement and the camera footage actually show them trying to beat the train, then Cody may be in some trouble since he made the statement that he just didn't see the train and since he was the driver. He obviously didn't mean for them to get hit or for Will to die, but by him getting on topix is just fueling the fire and making him seem like he is not remorseful.

Well I have one little thing to say, no matter what happened that day we did lose Will, we thought we would lose Donnie, and we was scared for cody. I do not blame Cody in the least bit. The reason I do not blame Cody is because he is a teenager. I want everyone to go back to their teenage years for a second.. Right when you turn 16 and start driving everyone knows your music is cranked up, and you are laughing and carrying on trying to have fun with friends. Cody may have tried to beat the train but many of people have also tried this too, they were just lucky enough to make it. I couldn't tell you how many of times me and my friends should have died due to the fact of our ignorant selfs driving stupid. I feel bad for Cody he will never be able to completely cope with this he love will and everybody knew it. He would never mean to harm Will or Donnie, he's just a young boy. Just like I said remember your teenage years before you judge Cody.

Don't in no way think I was agreeing with you. I just stated facts about trains. In no way did I disrespect these boys or their families. Just hoping that the other kids learn to learn to respect these trains so this don't happen again. And hope you learn some respect for families who are suffering and maybe a little class.

Oh no you are wrong you can't excuse bad behavior by others bad behavior, and no I did't act stupid when I was 16 and no when you are 16 you should not be considerd a boy you are too old to act stupid older people when they were 16 they acted like adults it's over the past couple generations that are considered kids way too long. What is it is people who act like kids longer than what they should.

What you were saying was disrespectful and hurtful. Don't try to right yourself off as the victim, John. You called a 17 year old girl, you don't even know, a whore, you're trying to blame Cody, and you don't even know what's going on. Tell me, how old are you? Instead of judging my friends, that are 16 and 17, why don't you try going to church? God will forgive you for what you said. Seems like you need some Jesus in your life. Remember though, Jesus loves you.:)

Hey Her that 17 year old called the first name 16 and 17 is not a kid like everyone thinks they are. Iam not judging anyone. See if you are old enough to have a drivers liscense then you are old enough to have responsibility and if you are such a kid at 16 and 17 then you don't need to have a liscence, sorry you can't have it both ways. What did I say about the drivers that's so disrespectfull. Was it when I said that people who drive crazy like the driver hurts and kills innocent people each year? Or was it when I said that it's not hard to stop and look both ways? Or was it when I said that a teacher of mine once said some of you better be glade that breathing is natural because if it wasn't someof you would be dead at a young age you should be old enough to have enough since for their not to be a sign to tell you to stop at a crossing. As far as me blaming cody lets see if he was driving trying to beat the train hmm your right lets blame someone in china your right that is who we should blame. The others deserve blame or not based on how hard they were cheering him on or try8ing to discourage him. iam 33 by the way and as far as me calling her a whore what about when she called me a dumass or stupid first if she can call names to me then it's ok for me to call names back and no it's not retaliation it's called standing up for myself. Oh and I know well it's not rigth to say something back well it's no more wrong to say something back than what it is to say something first. If Iam not overlooked for calling her an name when she calls me one first then she won't be overlooked when I say something back.

Then shouldn't you be an "adult" and not call her names too? Since your talking about immaturity. That's pretty immature on your part.
