No matter how it happens when a life is lost their is sadness. He was a beautiful vibrant child and has a family that loves him. We don't know what happened and regardless the reason by all accounts his life was cut too short! No one is perfect and we've all made mistakes unfortunately this young man may have made a choice which he paid with his life. He's someone's son, grandson, brother, cousin and nephew... there is plenty of sadness to go around. Pointing fingers doesn't change the outcome of this tragic event. Unfortunantely he had just begun his life and no one knows what was yet to come... career, marriage, children... all these things his parents are left to ponder and try to make sense of what has happened. Live and learn and hope that you and your loved ones never experiences the grief this child's family is feeling.

This is an example of why you should not drink and drive.. Good thing he did not hit another vehicle that had an entire family in it. Hopefully all of his friends are going to think about drinking and driving
