i have to ask all of you, why do you need to get on the internet to find every bit of information about something so terrible as todays accident. Why do you feel the need to put up photo's and the latest tid bits of it? Three people text and called me to see if I knew anything. Why, first of all, would i feel compelled to spit out names or any other information? If I knew it? I was an EMT for the state of New York for a few years, and it was NOT my place to tell any one anything. It is the job of the state troopers or a doctor or a family member. I saw some things i will NEVER forget. Why would i want to replay it over and over to any of you. Why would you want to bring sorrow, grief or unnessary stress to someone. The lines must have been over loaded with people trying to call loved ones for no reason. I know it is terrible what happened. But life is rough enough without it being thrown in our faces. We should be on our knees praying for all touched by it. Instead of worring about the names and details. When it comes to your door I pray it is done by someone who loves you, than by a nosey, drama seeking , unfeeling, need to be first to know, jerk!!!!!!

i was also an emt for 7 years and seen alot. it is not pleasant to see these things at all. i do know many will ask who was it because of being concerned for there family members. what is real scarey is when your an emt going to a call like this and not knowing if it could be a family member when you get there. i beleive that is a reaction to say who was it. everybodies does. out of fear.or the question is where are all my family members. people do panic. i know i did today for the fact of the location and my sister lives right there yes i was scared. yes lets keep this family and others lifted up in prayer. lift up the guy that is critical. no matter what even if it is not one of our family members no matter what you moarn for those families deeply i know i do. god be with all of them. i do not feel anybody is a jerk at all it is a normal response.
Ohhh

Making sure it wasn't someone close or a family member that's why people want to know. So thanks for your statement you heartless piece of sh!t I'm glad you are not an EMT anymore.

You are the jerk for making this uneducated statement about people you do not know. People care more than you know and when something close to home happens like this it is a reaction to want to find out if it is a family member, relative, friend, coworker, etc. You live your life your way and we will live our our way and don't get your ignorant head in the way. I am sorry to react this way, but your statement is full of bs and inconsiderate garbage. I am sorry you have endured pain and suffering thru the EMT field, but have some decency to recognize that this is not drama seeking or nosey neighbors, but heartfelt people wondering if they have lost someone or someone close to them has. Now go crawl under a rock and think about what you have been told.

If you can't see the difference between nosey and caring then you are the ass. Like i said, it's not that i don't care about people, it's that alot of others posted pictures and details before family members were even told. If you saw a vehicle sort of like a friend or family member what would you have done? Raced down to the scene, called every body you knew to get info, scaring the hell out of everyone? Do you really need to do that? Why not put yourself into a conversation with God. A whole lot of you said you did, but did you really? Did you take the time to go to your prayer place in your heart and head and ask Him to be there for them and you? Did you ask Him to calm your racing heart and mind? Did you ask Him to be with everyone on the scene. Did you tell him you don't understand why these things happen, but you know that He knows and thats all that matters? After you did all the posting, did you go back to your "place" and thank Him for His mercy and grace? Did you really talk to Him to thank Him for all that He has given you. For all your blessings? Or do you only do it when it's convenient for you, or when you need something. You can call me anything you want. Because while you were busy posting and calling all over, I was on my knees in prayer. Jerk out!

What would you guys have felt if someone knew the names and posted it on here and you didn't know yet so you found out on here? You'd be pretty pissed wouldn't you? I think this is what the first person was saying not that you're actually rude for doing it. Give it atleast a few days before you post. I'd be heartbroken if I found out my son, mother, father cousin, sister, brother boyfriend died on a site like this before I was told. Look at it from all points od view

they can't. they are only capable of hating someone because their opinion isn't along with their way of thinking. they see nothing wrong with posting and picking to find out info. whether it hurts someone else or not. as long as it isn't them. when my father died, the people in that town didn't put it in facebook or topix until members of his family could be notified. they respected who he was and truley cared about us. and we don't even live in the same town. and when the time came, they called and came by with support of true frienship. so he rest of you can keep coming on. i was raised with respect for others feelings, when the business at hand is not mine to peddle!

If you are the little backstabbing prick I AM PRETTY SURE YOU ARE, you have no room to talk. And your parents sure as hell dont either.
You all should be dropped of the planet.

@Hmmm, i am not who you think i am. i am not little, or a 'prick', as u call it. And i can't say as i am a backstabber. i tend to say things that are the truth.(much to the dismay of others). and i'm not quite sure how you would drop me off the planet. more people have agreed with me than you, so guess what, it's not me! you'll find that person in the mirror!
