Because the guy had no money to by beer the cops in the bar even questioned if he was even old enough to be in there and he was. Why question things you apparently don't know about?

He may have done it on "purpose", i.e. arguing with someone and walked into the street. He was known for being over dramatic and trying to commit suicide. He tried it at Halls High and at DSCC. I don't know if he did this on purpose or not, but it has crossed the minds of a few people that it may have been...

I know Topix is a place for people to gather and share info. Please make sure any info is accurate. The reputation of two men and there families are at stake. We know the man driving was tested on site and it was determined not to be drinking. We will not know if or how much Josh consumed until the M E complete autopsy. We sure do not know if Josh was killing himself. Please everyone be considerate, respectful, and factual concerning this case. As stated before it has changed lives for both sides of the family

Josh was drunk I did see him with a beer at one point and he was staggering and had a hard time keeping his balance. Im not trying to start any problem or slander him in any way. I was told he was a good guy and it is bad that this happened. I saw him walk out and he must have just kept walking out into the road .......
amazing grace

A tragedy, his purpose on earth was less than what he was needed for in heaven. Doesn't matter who, what or why. Prayers for this family.

We were there, Person at our table had went outside to charge cell phone and watched him walk right into the hiway. Could have been intentional and could be he was on the intoxicated side and didn't realize he was that close to the hiway when he stepped out.

Either way, my friend that watched it and family of the deceased and man and passenger that was in the vehicle, lives for sure changed.

Prayers to all!!!!

I am Josh's wife and I'm seeking any truth and facts about the accident. I have gotten hardly any answers, despite talking to so many people. What I do know is that people have told me he was in the middle of the road and struck by a truck, killed on impact and then flung about 100 feet. I also know he had been drinking, but having been with him for about a year now, I know he can hold his liquor well. If you know anyone who witnessed it or know about how he was doing that night, as in his attitude, etc, please let me know. I need some closure and I can't seem to find it anywhere.
