I think that all the posts on here talking smack about the kid dying and thinking its funny, are all fucking dipshits who live in their mothers basements and have no life of their own so its cool to make fun of people who they think they are higher then. Don't get me wrong, the kid didnt look like he was exactly the greatest kid in the world, but the bottom line is a kid is a dead. Were you there to see if maybe the driver was a dumbass and didnt she want she was doing? Were you there to maybe see the driver was spending? Even if Matt's at fault, hes a kid who died tragically. I hope of the people who left negative comments on here has a kid and has the same accident so we can poke fun at your dead kid. Not cool. Grow up. Show some fucking humanity because its the negative people like you that are fucking up everything thinking your opinion means anything. Truth is you are just a handicap. RIP Matt, no matter whos at fault.

These teenaged brats think they own the road.
With a name like "slappy sanchez" and a picture stating that ferrets love to party, I can tell you are a complete a-hole. How dare you make light of a tragic situation. Someone stopped to let him cross. He must have thought it was safe to go. It was dark out and apparantly the driver in the other lane didn't see him. He didn't think he owned the road. He was an innocent party. Do you think he would have chosen this fate for himself. I think you should shut your pie hole and have a little respect. He was a very nice young boy who will be loved and missed by many.

Looks like slappy is the moron. He can't even spell owned properly. What do you expect, however, with a name like sanchez.
PWNED

This term actually comes from a game created hundreds of years ago, even before computers were invented. This game was called,'chess'. The object of the game was to put the other player in checkmate, meaning, he was unable to move his king anywhere that he would not be threatened by another piece. Also in this game, you have 8 pieces at the front of your army called 'pawns', these were the least useful of all pieces, but that is not to mean they were worthless. If you could defeat the other player by using your pawn to apply check, that was called, and is still called pawned.

Now, back in the early 80's, before warcraft, counterstrike or even the INTERNET, there were ways you could contact other PC's by using a modem. These were called BBS's and allowed you to connect to individual computers acting as severs where games would be so that people could play other people they did not know. Now, when I used to play these games as well as many other people 22+, they used to use and coined the phrase,'pwned'. Which was slang for pawned. It eventually was taken from just chess and used in other text based games to taunt the loser of a match. It is now commonly wide spread across the world, although the children do not understand its true meaning.

Okay so it's used to taunt the loser. You have never met nor have any idea of what this kid was about and you call him a loser because he died before you. You're a sad person & sooner or later you'll get yours buddy. Peice of shit. R.I.P. Matt

"Based on the witness accounts, the bicyclist was apparently crossing the road while the cars had the green,"

Who's the loser? Who got himself hit by a car?
Sad story, but hey, he did this all on his own.

Dont spit in the wind if you have kids. It really isnt funny to make fun of a teenager being critically hurt while bike riding. Yeah kids are sometimes retarded while they are riding their bikes and the woman that hit her is probably devastated so why add more to a sad situation... It isnt like the article said she was drug dealing at the time, or an illegal immigrant running from being deported. Give her a break.
I don't think any one is commenting on the driver of the car. But what about the bicyclist? was he wearing a helmet? Did he have lights on his bike? why did his parents allow him out at night on a bike? Why was a 16 year old out and about at night without adult supervision? Go ahead, accuse me of parental bashing. I sure am. Why would they think their child was safe after dark on a bike?

Wow, I have never in my life heard such a bunch of insensitive ignorant people!

Here is the deal from what I know direct from the accident...
It was not dark, nor late. The driver, who is not necessarily to blame, was inexperienced, as she was only 20 (which driving less then 3 years, is classified by INSURANCE companies as inexperienced).
Matt was waved on by another driver who's car was facing the same direction as the driver who hit him. The driver who waved him on was STOPPED. The light had JUST turned green, and driver of the car who hit him, sped around the still stopped traffic, and hit him.
Her (the drivers) fault?... No, not necessarily (however, a good driver would have approached the intersection with greater caution after a light had JUST turned green).
Matt's fault?? No, not necessarily, he should have waited, or was a little less trusting of an ADULT DRIVER who waived him on.

This was an accident.. Neither party was blaintantly wrong. But the fact remains, there is a CHILD dead, a family in great pain, friends who are destroyed, and then there are the idiots who feel the need to make uneducated blanket statements.

With all due respect to those who are bashing this kid... Unless you were there, at the intersection, and witnessed the accident, have some respect to those who are grieving, and shut up.
