This is just too sad. These are the kind of people that cause very bad accidents. Do you think you really need to drive so fast that you have to pass someone that is already going 20 MPH over the speed limit, in the dark, on wet roads and across a double yellow ??? I hope they take this guy's driving privileges away for EVER. People that have no regard for the safety of themselves and especially others should NOT be on our roadways. They kill people.

I commute that section of road every day in a semi-truck and the CHP could ticket on average 20 cars an hour for the same move in the same spot, between the 5:00 and 7:00 time frame. I hope that they throw the book at this fool who caused this death, not vehicular manslaughter, how about murder, his direct overpowered glory run actions caused a death. Some say oh it just happened, no taxes and being fired just happens, people killed due some idiots actions while driving like he owns the road, is just wrong. put him away for what he has done and remove his ability to ever drive again.

I really hope the dead mans family sues this idiot for everything he has.
this is why it's so important to slow down in foul weather, if the guy was already going 75 mph, there is absolutely no need to pass, the speed limit is only 55 back there.

I think that people should stop judging. It is in God's place to do so. Instead of throwing stones you people should pray for everyone involved. Also some of you should really learn how to spell.

If you read the PC 191 section I believe, Its vehicular manslaughter

Keith was my uncle - I had no idea when I found out Friday that he had crossed a yellow line on wet roads to pass my uncle who was already going 75. I hope this man realizes what he has done to our entire family. Our family is devastated. He has taken away my uncle, a guy who used to come visit me , my brother, and sister in MI all the way from AL growing up. He was so much fun and was the coolest uncle ever. He used to love to be with us - he was just a big kid himself. Now I am 33. I have such wonderful memories of my uncle and I am so grateful for those memories but my daughter will never get to meet her Uncle Keith. My grandma has lost her youngest son and my mother has lost her brother. Everyone in my family has lost a brother, a son, an uncle, a cousin.

For what? I hope this guy realizes this. Accidents happen. I understand that. God is the one who will judge. But for now, we all have to suffer and wonder why. It is so pointless.

Please everyone pray for my family, but mostly pray for my grandma who now has to attend the funeral of her youngest boy. And for my mom, her brother, and her sister who have lost their brother.

The Air Force, God Bless them, is flying my family out to California for his funeral since he was active military. I have to give them credit - they have been amazing.

As Carrie's older brother, Keith was as much a big brother to me as my uncle. He was someone I admired, looked up to and loved to see every time he visited. Some of my dearest memories growing up were with my Uncle Keith by my side. I can't express how much I will miss him.

Enrico Massagli III, of Chico, killed Mr Strom by driving recklessly. How many of these a--holes like Enrico have passed you recklessly? Everybody's in a f--king hurry. It's sad that Enrico wasn't killed.

I think everyone is losing sight of what really matters. I dont think we know all the details and I know for a fact that the newspaper doesnt get all the details correct. was the double line broken? which means he could pass. I am not saying that speeding was smart but lets not point fingers and pray for Strom's family. This is what matters.

I think all of you who are passing judgment should really take a look at your own life. This was an accident and I think that we should just pray for everyone. When getting in a car we are not promised to arrive safely at out destination that is the chance we all take. To all the people who say oh he is probably a Mexican and you think the driver should die you are racist and the worst kind of people. Who is anyone to say who should die and who shouldn't. Not any of you that is for sure. None of you were there nor do you know how anyone else feels that is going through this. Most of you are saying that he needs to die and what if the guy who did this was to read it? Don't you think he may be guilt ridden for the rest of his life and this will just make it worse. People should stop casting stones. No one is promised tomorrow and this is an unfortunate situation for everyone so lets not make it worse.

Well, my uncle was driving 75 mph so he was not driving slow. I do not know this stretch of road so I have no idea why it is two lane or what the speed limit is. It is not my place to pass judgment and I will not do so. From my understanding there were charges brought against this man and so the courts will decide his punishment. I don't know if he was married or had children, but it is them that I feel sorry for if so. They will also be suffering along with us. Accidents do happen, so I hope that we all think about this next time we get into our cars and are in a hurry. It takes a second to change your life, someone else's life, and entire families.

I just spoke with my grandmother and she is beside herself with grief. It is her that I am worried about. No mother should have to go through this.

I totally agree with you. I'm sure the driver feels horrible for the family of the deceased.

I think that this story is so sad for all parties involved. Massagli maybe have acted recklessly, but it's not like he left the house that day hoping to kill another human being. It may not have been the best thing for him to do, OBVIOUSLY, but I am sure we don't know the whole story either.
The best thing to do is to pray for everyone.
Both families have been changed forever and whether or not Massagli has to serve time for his mistake, he will always remember this accident and it will follow him for the rest of his life.
Not only did he have a part in taking another life, but he took the life of a fellow airman.
I'm pretty sure he will never forgive himself as it is.
