I sure hope ( but I am sure they will ) they do not charge the driver. He will be paying for this the rest of his life. May God be with them all.

It's allways a good idea to wear a helmet when hood riding!

Seriously? Why does the news waste our time with stupid s*** like this.
The kid was acting like an idiot and might end up living the rest of life like an actual idiot. Karma's a b*****.

Woodtv 8, stop wasting my time with your attempts at news, theres so much else going on in the world and locally that you could be focusing on right now.

You were teenager once weren't you? Or is it too long ago for you to remember that teenagers make mistakes? Teenagers like to mess around and be immature...probably because that is part of growing up. I hope he pulls through this tragic ordeal and learns an important lesson, which is not to take death for granted because it can happen to anyone at anytime. My thoughts are with his family and friends at this very hard time for them.

Thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers. It was an accident, that's all. For those of you who don't know him, he's a really great kid. Be sure to hug and kiss your kids tonight, and tell them you love them, repeatedly.

Hey Wow -- Stop wasting you time reading s*** like this! Just stop reading the news, no one forced you to read it or to watch it or to take the time to comment on it. Duh.

How tragic. My thoughts and prayers go out to this young man and to his family and friends. Will kids never learn? No they will not b/c they are kids - we all have done things we were lucky to survive! I for one hope they don't charge the friend that was driving the car - they were all in on doing it and no one person was responsible for the accident.

What a terrible accident. As teenagers, we all did stupid things, and heck, I'm sure a lot of us know adults that do stupid things. I certainly hope this young man pulls through and is okay.
never stop learning

Sad and dumb.

Not too bright, huh kid.

Put your friends and family through all this, let alone the medical bills and strain on your families budget and for what.

30 seconds of proving you're an idiot?

Good luck with the brain injury, but most likely you were already having problems by the sounds of it.

sad.

The reason that this is news is to make people aware that this is dangerous for them to do. hopefully they'll think twice before they do it. Parents will talk to their teens about it...hopefully. And just because a person has a head injury that affects them for the rest of their lives does not make them an idiot. It just means they aren't able to function normally in a few areas of life. It's sad that you have such a poor attitude here. I pray he has a full recovery! God bless.
