Driver error and drunk driving kill more people per year than all acts of terrorism combined.

Nice work loser. You couldn't pay attention or even worse, chose not to stop, and you killed a guy. Excellent.

Idiotic comments are more annoying than telemarketers and scraping ice off windows combined.

22,000 people died last year from acts of terrorism in the whole world.....there are a lot of things that kill people more than terrorists, why bring it up in a story about a traffic accident?

There needs to be a constant police force posted at every intersection on US-31 in Holland. I drive that road everyday and almost every time the light turns red someone runs the light. Our state has a revenue shortage that could be made up by writing traffic tickets on US-31 alone.

This is a tragedy, That almost all the time happens to good people that are in the wrong place at the wrong time. I wish the laws would be more aggressive with people who violate traffic laws. I watch people all the time when i am sitting at a 4-way intersection , and see 2-3 cars everytime speed up to make the it through the yellow before it changes. That is why you should wait a few before going when the light is green. But responsible drivers should know that the yellow light, means prepare to stop. Not speed up. May god be with them all.

First, condolences to the family!! Second, I drive Riley road to work four days a week. It is truly horrendous!! I hesitate before starting east thru the light and ALWAYS look twice both ways!!! We all need to slow down,life is over before you know it!!!
