No he went away cause he didn't want to deal with what was going on with the other person that was involved! So leave him alone and let him live his life and make something out of himself!

You mean the same stuff he is/was going through. It seems like he ran away from his problems.

Why do you have to try to bring someone down? Is it wrong of him to turn his life around and grow up? Would you prefer he sit at home and dwell on it everyday? Things happened, they were terrible but making that the focus of your life would be ridiculous. He is in college and has made a short movie about the dangers of teenagers and alcohol. You can find it on utube under his name. He hasn't forgotten about Scotty but scottys family wouldn't want him to waste the rest of his life. They would want him to remember Scotty and move forward. Watch his video. It's clear he has moved on but will never forget. You might want to consider that he wasn't the driver in that accident instead of being so critical. Say a prayer for those involved rather than try to be so judgemental.

Just because he wasn't the driver doesn't mean that he didn't take part in it. I'm glad that he is moving on, I think both of these young men are. Its just sad that it seems like this tore them apart at a time when they needed each other most.

Oh and I saw the video on Youtube. And while I really do agree with the message it puts out there it seems like he portrays himself as a victim, and while he was a victim he was also a participant.

Don't be putting all the blame on chris or the other "victim" as you are saying. No one forced the alcohol into Scotty's hand. No one forced Scotty to get in the vehicle with the other two young men. Yes they made a huge life changing mistake, but let the other two move on with their lives the best way they know how. If chris wants to put up a video with pictures of what happened that night, that is his way of letting people know the cause and effect of drinking and driving! Maybe he doesn't want you to be another statistic!

It was suppose to be a fun night out with friends, which ended tragically. Every teen has those nights where they go out to have fun, but sometimes accidents happen. And thats what this was. I'm sure it was and is very hard for both boys who survived, and I believe there was a girl that had been with them that was dropped off just before the wreck.

Can someone please give a little more info on the youtube video I would love to watch it and pass it on. But I did a search of his name and came back with 2800 results.

I think it's wonderful that he has moved away from here and trying to get his life straight, it has to be a lot less stressful away from Todd County as he doesn't have to face people who place blame on him, go by Scotty's work daily, pass by the site daily. And stuff like that. People like to place blame before they think what it would be like to be in their shoes. Scotty's family still has contact with Chris to my best of knowledge so they hold no grudge. They know accidents happen, and they are grateful another parent didn't have to go thru what they did.

Toddcountygirl you sound like a jealous person who is interested in causing trouble for someone who is trying to better themselves. Grow up and get a life sweetie.

Your right Scotty's family still has contact with Chris, but none with the other boy Travis. On the Facebook page for Scotty they speak about how they blame him. I just find it hard to believe that its truly anyone's fault. But yet there is lots of blame placed on one person.

Travis for one never changed a bit after the accident, he continued to do the same things over and over. He was one that never learned from it, and he was seriously injured in the accident also. That should've been a HUGE wake up call for him, that his friends life was taken, and his was almost taken but it wasnt'.

People do grow apart as things changes. Some people have other priorities in life that others dont. And I'm not saying this is the case, but with death I know everyone handles things differently. And it may have been to much for Chris and Travis to continue being friends after what happened to Scottie. With alcohol involved and still involved all the time does make a difference. I'm sure both boys still has the What if's feeling. But that is things they can't change, but they can change the future. And if it means living Todd Co and going to a new place and trying to get your life back on track, I think it's a wonderful thing.

We were all young and dumb at once and did things we think back on now why did I do that. But that is what makes us who we are now. We learn from it

You know I think it's pretty sad that people have to get on here and try to bring someone down for trying to get on with their life! I am sure there is NOT one of you here that hasn't made a bad decision just some have consequences that are more tragic than others...Chris is a good kid and this post hurts more than just him. Maybe you should think about that..

Chris didn't move to Florida to "run away" from everything, his brother and granddad live in Florida that is why he moved there. Also Chris has not forgotten about anything that occured on that night, and he def. isn't to blame. Each person is only responisble for themselves and its not right to blame others for what happened. They were all just trying to have a good time and it resulted badly. He has moved on with his life but he hasn't forgotten about Scotty. Him and Scotty were good friends and it was hard on Chris losing him as well as it was others. Chris even asked about Scotty in the hospital. Chris didn't just walk away from the wreck he was seriously injured, and has tried to move on and prevent this terrible accident from recoccuring in teenagers today by making a movie where he did include pictures of himself after the wreck, but not to try and play the "victim". He including them hoping others would see them and think twice before drinking! Everyone has made mistakes some more devestating then others, but we have all made them. Its not fair to judge others for mistakes they have made when we ourselves have made mistakes. So with that being said can we not all just let this man move on with his life and not bring up this tragic part in his past? I think that would be best, because how would you like it if someone brought up such a sensitive part in your life and then tried to blame you for something that was by far out of your hands?
