The facts are still the same. If the driver of the black car had not been speeding then a bump on the back bumper(if this really happened)would not have killed anyone. Everyone is blaming this Shawn guy, but it seems to me that poor choices were made by everyone in this case.

if somebody were chasing you, you mean to say you wouldn't speed to get away

no the facts are not the same you are just lost.... if the driver of the black car was speeding then that means that shawn was also speeding otherwise he would not have been able to hit the black car .. and whenever YOU FAIL TO REDUCE SPEED TO AVOID AN ACCIDENT.. YES IT MAKES IT HIS FAULT... And Shawn hit the black car .. the black car did not hit him..

First there would not have been a chase because I wouldn't have been speeding. I am in my car what is he going to do to me? I have locks on my doors if he were to force me to stop and I have a cell phone. I say this again, poor choices were made. Now this doesn't mean that I don't feel bad for the families that lost their loved ones. I handled insurance claims for many years and the facts are the facts. Did they find paint transfer on the black car? have they looked at the car driven by the other person. Was there paint transfer on his bumper? Those are the things an investigater would look for,and if it is not there it didn't happen.Even if there was the driver of the black car still would share in the libility. Speed and alochol do not mix.

i know these were your friends and you want very much for this not to be their fault. But again if you are not speeding there can not be a chase. Was the other guy brandishing a gun? was the driver in fear for his life? If that was the case did not one person in the car have a cell phone to use to call the police and tell them a man with a gun is following them. or whatever the case is. poor choices, I've said it once and I'll say it again. These were not 19 and 20 yr olds who are still prone to acting implusively. These were adultd who should have known better.

yes I see what you are saying if one of YOUR family members is ever speeding and another car hits your family members car and your family member dies as a result of them (YOUR FAMILY MEMBER) speeding its your family members fault. yes I get it so when I see a speeding car I should hit them and then run .. because hey its their fault..

you have totally missed the point. there is no proof that anyone hit the car. just someone saying he did. did you witness it? were you there? I am just saying had he stopped to think about what he was doing we wouldn't be having this conversation. This is the last I am saying on this. I am sorry for your loss. I hope in time you find peace and the answers you are looking for.

Don't call this person stupid. Obviously they genuinely didn't know. I think you should apologize.

Who cares what color truck the eyewitness has. lol I think you meant the eyewitness "saw."

Mugger is not defending a murderer. He/she is merely voicing an opinion.
