I'm guessing the paper wants us to feel sorry for the 33 year old guy. However, if he has been home with his wife and kids at 3:30 in the morning, like he should have been, he would be alive today. It never ceases to amaze me how people go out at all hours of the night, leaving their spouses and children at home. Nothing good happens at 3:00 am. Trust me.

"Stupid is as stupid does."

The real victim in this event is the unfortunate driver of the Ford Crown Victoria.

His car is ruined by the idiotic antics of fools who would stand in the middle of a highway in the middle of the night to observe who won an illegal street race.

Foolish antics beget foolish results.

People from their teens to 60's at 3:00am along an open highway watching illegal car races. We do have some of the dumbest rednecks in the world in MD. Darwin was right in this case!

Talk about dumb!

As if STANDING in the middle of a dark highway in the dead of night isnt dumb enough but to be so transfixed on two cars racing infront of you that you dont hear or turn around to check to see if one may be appraoching from beind!?!

Yes, I feel bad that people died but Im just saying that the circumstances that caused their death is idiotic to say the least.

My prayers go out to the driver of the White Crown Vic. God be with you in your time of healing. I pray you have an excellent support system around you to help you deal with this tragedy in a healthy manner. God Bless.

Could someone please explain how Conservative's rambling has anything to do with the topic at hand? Van's is a statement of the moronic behavior of people who think that watching car racing in the dark at 3am constitutes entertainment. I'm thinking maybe Conservative should join them!

The media needs to stop calling this horrible event an accident. It was result of totally stupid behavior on the part of many people. Such moronic activity was sure to end as it did.People this dumb need to be locked up.

Hmm, couple shades darker than red I believe. I'm sure it's the fault of some Anglo Saxon... as we are the root of all their evil. Let's dump tons of tax dollars on the situation to make us all feel better. Heaven help the driver of the Crown Vic if he is a couple of shades lighter than red.
