this is very heartbreaking. he was missing from home for three weeks and i'm sure his parents were worried about him. now the next time they see him he is dead. i'm going to give my son a hug and tell him how much i love him as soon as i see him.

Alcohol may not have been a factor in the crash, but stupidity sure was!

Once again the "Daily Pravda" only gets part of the story. The vehicle was stolen. The "Daily Pravda" is a waste of newsprint.

While it is sad that he passed away, it is basically a case of thinning the herd.

Wow, tragic to end this way. My sympathies to his parents who I am sure have been worried about him.

No great loss. If he had wiped out a family of Christians, the DP would still call him a victim.

This child was probably very firghtened and was scared to pull over out of fear of what the police would do to him.

Once it became clear the child wasn't go to stop, the police should have never chashed him.

What a shameful day in the state police history. I hope they can learn from this and maybe revise their pursuit policies.

My thoughts and prayers go out to this young mans family and friends.

Now, I don't believe this 'gentleman' was afraid of anything! You don't get to drive that fast and be afraid of anything. That's crap and you and I both know it.

I care. I dont know the family, I dont know him but I care. Right or wrong he was a human being with a family who loved him. I have sympathy for his family, but even more sympathy for you. How miserable you must be to want to see something so gruesome and be entertained by it. One can only assume after a statement like that your God Bless was nothing more than sarcasm. I am however going to repeat that right back to you MAY GOD BLESS YOU

It is very sad these days that people die at such young ages and get involved in what is obviously gang related activity. Young folks say they have nothing to do and that is why they join gangs as well they say no one loves them, we need to look into getting more Boys & Girls centers for these children and if they feel unloved it may be that so many bring up themselve's without a mother & Father because they are too busy to take care of their children and train them up as good Young men & women. HG you always have racial comments so it is obvious you are one of those who feel oppressed by the white man and to tell you the truth it you who continues to oppress yourself. There are many ways to make a life for youeself but some people just do not want to leave the system as they get comfortable and do not want out. My love goes out to the parents of this young man as they did report him missing and now they have lost one they loved to early, may god bless this family and comfort them in this time of despair.

Stop with the racist comments before I tell on you and have you banned. That talk is not welcome here.
When the police decide to enage in a high speed pursuit they should have a good reason. This child would be alive if the police hadn't chased him - that's a fact.
I believe that most law abiding citizens pull over when a police officer is pulling them over. This child would still be alive if he did the right thing and pulled to the side of the road like they teach you the first day of any drivers education class. So stop with your nonsense.
