I knew David very well, almost like a brother. This story failed to metion that the night he had died, he made eagle scout,, the highest rank of boy scouts. this was a harmless dopey kid, with a big heart and big dreams...to this day over a year later,, there are still no answers to what happen that night.. I know many of his firends he was with that night are covering something up.. and I hope they have to live with that the rest of their lives..

I don't see how a kid who steals a vehicle is such a nice, well liked person. Something is very wrong when an adolescent can be involved in grand theft auto and be made into a kind of saint. I don't believe he was just a 'nice' innocent kid. Those kind of lapses in judgement can get you into prison. What a way to start his adult life.

Made Eagle Scout? I was an Eagle Scout 40 yrs ago and smart, hard working kids were involved, not harmless dopey ones who stole trucks in the middle of the night. If this is an example of what passes for an honorable Eagle Scout these days, then there is no integrity, honesty or responsibility left. He appearently also had crappy friends.

This was a poorly written story with much speculation that since the incident two years later has been proven false, starting with the claim that the car was "stolen". Yet there are many more unanswered questions about what really happened that night. Hit a telephone pole, but not go through the windshield? People heard it, but he layed there for at least four hours before anyone came to help?

I suggest Mr. Eagle Scout of 40 years ago, that you relearn the Scout Oath and Law,(and the Ten Commandments probably applies as well). This was a terrible tragedy, not just for the family, but also for the Scouting community in the area.

David also had signed the back of his DL, donating six organs, saving multiple lives.

One year later, on the same date, David's brother had his Eagle Board of Review and earned the rank of Eagle.

The joke is on you, sir. You should be ashamed. An Eagle Scout does not make comments such as yours. And such honorable language you chose to use. Real classy.

This "Eagle Scout" was boozed up, over the limit and was speeding, all crimes that would have an Eagle Scout's credentials removed. Let's ask MADD what they think!

Thank you for your comment. This is exactly my point. This is not the behavior I would expect of a responsible young man. I have two grown sons, and I definitely wouldn't expect it of them. Yes, it's a tragedy on many levels, including the level of personal behavior and responsibility!

There must be some extremely interesting extenuating circumstances involved that have been keep from the public. Matthew, please enlighten this blog on them. If the young man involved in this incident is not responsible, then please reveal the facts to us. I lost a daughter to a drunk driver six years ago. The driver of that car was a nice boy too. Right is right, and wrong is wrong. Doesn't accountability mean anything to you??????

thats really all you people can talk about? what is wrong and what is right? a teen that didnt get a chance to live his life is dead. i am sick to my stomach reading all these commments. Where is humanity these days. everyone makes mistakes. whether anyone likes it or not. he paid for his mistake in a tragic way. Next time show some respect to the families, friends, and the community for their loss.

Grown 40yr old men who seem to be so educated and successful in life have nothing to talk about but a young kid who made a mistake that lead to death?? Perhaps it could have been you or your child in that car you piece of shit!!!
