How sad.
People, don't use cell phones or look down & mess w/the radio or even glance into your bags/purses. Don't txt while driving.

Sounds like it is almost the passangers fault. She grabbed the wheel and made the vehicle go the oposite side of the road and roll? Let the driver drive and do not over correct! Idiots

Stopped for speeding just before this happened?
She committed a crime and show should do the time.
She killed one person and almost killed the children.
I hope she gets charged for murder and reckless driving.

I agree. As if txting isn't dangerous enough while driving, I constantly see water haulers and 18 wheeler drivers txting. I even saw a police officer txting. People really need to handle the cell phones in a parking lot while they are in park. Not driving heavy machinery!

Do we know the driver was texting? The young man grabbed the stering wheel. I think that was probably the result of the accident. It is ironic that the driver had just been ticketed for speeding. Too bad a life was lost. People do stupid things.

What is your definition of a "fine young man?"
I could not help but laugh in disgust for the distatsteful obituary written by what appears his "homies and/or his rucca." Even in death the obituaries are written to glorify an individual's life regardless of his/her acomplishments, but the ignorance of these people radiates from the so badly written article. What is this world coming to? It is hard to believe that this is the quality of people we are surrounded with in our lives. May God bless America

Amen to that. Condolences to the family, but that obit was low class and tacky, to say the least. Many, many people think so.

You know its people like you who are low class and tacky. We know how to express ourselves without having to worry about what others think. We act and talk the way we want without being worried about being judged.. At least they were real in what wrote..so F@#! ya'll...

I don't want to make this a racial issue because ignorants like you exist in every race. It is obvious that you don't have the slightest idea of what class and tackiness is. By your expression you've demonstrated that you are one more ignorant piece of excrement that roams this land disgracing society. Unfortunately, it is too late to teach you to become a valuable member of society......looser!!

I did not say she was texting. I was simply responding to the comment left by someone else about texting and driving and how dangerous it is.

I agree. I could not believe the obituary when I read it that I read it a second time just to make sure my eyes were not playing tricks on me. Very tacky.
