Blake has family spread out far and wide...whatever you know...let the family make its calls first. They are deserving of that. This is no place for a loved one to find out about the loss.

THe High school kids think its time to show off for friends,
they dont take driving seriously they think its a toy i think.
I hope that this student is ok and that he/she wont have any long term problems after this. I think that the police should be more aware of all the hot rodding the kids do as they leave school.
My daughter and i wasw there just before crash occured my prayers go out to all that were involved and hope there will not be anything
perminently wrong with this student that was so badly injured.

"One of those staged accidents students are getting used to these days"? What does that mean? Movies or some safe-driving stunt? That's an odd statement to make.

Students get into car crashes everyday. Why did this make the news?

Blake wasn't racing or hot rodding.. He was leaving the school.. not every teenager that gets into a wreck was at fault.. Seriously this poor boy is in the hospital and all any of you can say is that its because he is a teenager.. Wow.

And I believe it made the news because it truely was an accident and there really was an innocent victim... this is what should be on the news.. not all the little troublemakes who just want publicity!

To blake's family and friends.. I haven't had the pleasure of meeting him but know quite a few who had. And some of my friends are very close to him. He seems like a pretty amazing kid.. very friendly and lovable.. I wish him the best of luck and continue to pray for him... You are all in my prayers!

What made it "truely" an accident? Did a section of jet airliner fall from the sky? Did a huge monster rear up out of the pavement? Did a light fixture suddenly fall into the intersection? Did a car explode with no warning?

THOSE are "truely" accidents. Everything else is driver error. Childish children making this out to be no one's fault. Get real.

Why don't you learn to show him respect, the problem is not who's fault it is, THE problem is Blake's future, my mom knows people from the hospital Blake was taken to and truth be told, even if he does live( which there's a low chance of) he will never return to school, he will be a vegetable and that's the sad truth. Stop giving crap saying who's fault it was and pray for Blake's family.

The only childish thing im seeing here is the way VCDaedalus is acting. Be a bit more respectful. Im sure it would be a different story if it was someone you knew.

This is a huge deal at our school. Some kids are devistated a lot of my good freinds knew him very well and they don't even know what to think right now. They had a lot of big signs at lunch saying "We love you Blake Hampton" and everytime i looked up there, there was a line with more and more people signing it. This is not just some crash it is a big deal and all of us are here for him and praying. You are in my prayers Blake and his family.
