No matter what that person has done in the past, can you imagine being in an accident where 3 of your friends were killed? Personally, I didn't know any of these kids, but my neighbors knew one of them very well, despite the fact they admit he was problem kid, they loved him very much. I'm sure you have done a few things not so noble in your life.... And by the way, mentioning his parents money just makes you come off as a petty jealous ass hole. have a freakin heart.

Whatever. These were good kids that did some bad things. None of them deserved this! My heart and prayers go out to all the other family/friends out there. God is with them.

one of my best friends died that way, he was the greatest kid and if anyone ever said anything about that right after his death i would have been crushed.

i knew niles, we didn't like eachother and i would never wish anything like this upon him. and matt was one of the nicest kids around.

you're truly cruel and heartless. i'm shamed to be from the same city as you.

How dare you write like that!! Even if they were bad kids one has passed away. How do you think your friends and family would feel if you died and someone wrote CRAP like that?!?!?!?
As a wise person once said....If you can't say(type) anything nice then DON'T say(type) anything at all!!!!!

It is never a good idea to drink and drive -are laws should be stricter bigger fines and license taken away. 2nd time jail-time with community service
also there is always more to a story than everyone thinks they know my son had less than 2 beers when he crashed-but was being chased at the time who knows if something ran in front of this car before they crashed why always look for the negative
my prayers go out to all the family's what grief and heartache may Chris survive and find God's purpose for his life

i am sorry, maybe you have issues with this guy. But that is the most rude and insensitive thing i have heard. Mostly when he is in a hospital right now, possibly fighting for his life. You need to grow up and realize that life is much bigger than you, and that comments like that are uncalled for, and not needed.

Thoughts and prayers to all the families involved!

Does anyone know if Matt is still hanging on? My son went to highschool with him. He came home last night and said another friend said he passed away and this morning woodtv was reporting that he had passed away, but now they have taken back that statement and say he is still hanging in there.

Does anyone know for sure what is going on?

Obviously, Katie must be an idiot. Sure, let's send Chris to jail for being in a car when it crashes! We are praying for Matt and Chris.

It's really sad that people died in this horrible accident and all you people can do is talk smack about them!

They were human beings. Regardless of wether you liked them or not, no one deserves to die.

My thoughts and prayers are with the families
