So, has Bret Michaels made any comment on this? Two young people were killed. The least he could do is offer an apology to their loved ones.

Yes, it was Bret Michaels' driver. He was hauling the band's equipment and fell asleep at the wheel. Crossed over into oncoming traffic and hit another vehicle. The two killed were college kids.

You can read about this horrible tragedy here:

Note that the article states that Michaels' driver was charged with driving on a SUSPENDED license and several other traffic charges.

Driving on a suspended license? I smell BIG lawsuit. The driver was employed by Michaels and Michaels obviously failed to verify that his driver was LEGALLY qualified to drive.

One of the girls that was killed was my former neightbor. She was only 19 and was coming home from college to visit her family. What a complete tragedy! It happened in Southern Illinois on Hwy 157 I think. I went to funeral, a parent should never have to bury their child!

You and her family have my deepest sympathy. I hope her family (and the family of the other victim) plan on suing Bret Michaels and/or his organization. What were they thinking by hiring a guy who was driving on a revoked license????

God, that was so sad, & tragic.
That, myself is something I have always been afraid of, from working long 12-13 hr days & I can't always fall asleep early. I sometimes don't get but 4 hrs of sleep before I have to work those long days, & I have to use alot of my strength in my job. I almost sideswiped a corvette a few years ago, when having been made to stay for a double shift of a 7-3, then 3-11 afterward, & then come back in the a.m. for another 7-3 shift, & I had a long ways to drive home, so that a.m. I was beat, & nearly hit a car. Anymore, if I start to get that bad, I will pull over & just rest. Cops around where I live are a bunch of annoyances, & nit picky of the minute, stupid shit. I don't care. I'd rather NOT hit, maim/injure, or kill someone by vehicular means, so they should take my decency into account. Our cops would have something to say about some person seeing a strange car parked across from their house, or in a lot, even though I was doing the right thing. I would STILL stand up for myself, even if they got all pissy. It would be a better thing than have something like this happen.
TB, I know what you are saying about the parent burying their child. My parents went through that last summer, & it's taken it's toll on them, still. I am sorry about your loss of your good friend, that is a terrible shame, esp. when they hadn't even fully lived out their life.
