Drunk? Too much speed? Both?

Possible, especially at that hour. But let's not jump to conclusions. I believe it was raining then, and that could have been a factor.

RIP Vincent.

Vince was on his way to work to deliver papers. He was not drunk. His SUV hydroplaned which caused him to hit the guardrail. You frickin morons think you are so smart. He was a good kid who had a tragic accident. Try getting a life.

Thank you Amazed by the lunacy. Vince was my nephew, and he was on his way to work. Beowulf, maybe you should think before you post such an insensitive and judgmental comment. Shame on you.

Everyone, as a first responder for ODOT let me tell you hydroplaning was very possible Tuesday morning. Just after 2am the 5th ave garage at ODOT was notified of a TERT (emergency road closure) on I70 at Main St in the Livingston Ave curve. It seems a professional driver, driving a tractor trailer hydroplaned and lost control of his truck sending him off the side of the road. Amazingly he survived. As we were responding to this accident my truck hydroplaned on James rd and again on I70 (yes I was driving too fast for conditions). As we were closing the roadway for this accident we received notification of a possible fatality on I270@ I70 on the west side. We arrived and and closed the ramp.(in heavy rain)
I guess what I am saying is that if a professional driver such as the truck driver or myself can hydroplane, then a little slack should be cut for a 22 year old kid who lost control on a slick road. Bye the way the Columbus police began code 2ing (or advising drivers to call police later for non injury accidents) at 3:20am for all freeway accidents due to the sudden heavy volume of accidents on Columbus' freeways.
To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. Vince was treated with extreme care and respect at the scene as the police and coroner completed their investigation.

Beowulf and assassin, you are both completely insensitive morons. Particularly you, ASSassin- you pompous think you know it all jerkoff. Don't talk "facts" like you know a thing or two, you know nothing and I feel sorry for the people in your life that have to deal with your idiocy. Vince actually had friends and family, real ones who cared. He was a kind hearted, goofy, responsible guy who was impossible to hate. Charismatic, enigmatic, magnetic. He was on his way to work like a responsible person, so maybe you should take his cue and get off your ass and stop computer surfing and go get a job. Dick. And as for Vince, I find comfort in knowing I'll see him again in a happier place, someday. <3

Beowulf, I don't know you, but I know people like you. A professional (Highway Worker) has posted FACTS about the incident and conditions of that morning and yet you still feel the need to push in your "knowledge" as if it means ANYTHING to ANYONE on here. Is your need to be right seriously that important to you that you would minimize the fact that this young man lost his life??!! He died, his family and friends are grieving and you want to make sure you're opinion is heard on hydroplaning.


Anyone who knew Vince knows he was a great guy with a great family. They deserve better than you and all the others who post on these forums just to make a game of egging on loved ones in their time of grief.

You hide behind your computer now, but one day you'll all answer for your disgusting behavior.

HIGHWAY WORKER-I would just like to say thank you on behalf of the family for your post. Although the last line made me break into tears, it is appreciated. It's a terrible thing to have to sit and wonder what a precious loved ones last moements were like in a situation like this.

As for ASSASSIN (stupid name, why don't you use your real one?), you know nothing of the facts, so stop making yourself sound even stupider than you probably are. Speed doesn't need to be a factor in hydroplaning if your taking a sharp curve, like this one. The way the tires turn make you lose traction even on dry pavement! Not to mention we have a first hand account of the events from the other person in the car. FACT: You don't know what you're talking about!

Reading the message boards and some of the incredibly insensitve things people say is disheartning and I only hope my anunt and uncle (Vince's parents) don't see any of it. It would only serve to be further heartbreaking for them to read the lazy assumptions people make tainting their childs memory.
As another poster wrote, Vince was a wonderful person and everyone loved him, he always had a smile on his face and had a happy-go-lucky personality. Those devastated by his death extend far beyond his closest friends and family. So unless you have something helpful or comforting to say, why don't you do those of us in mourning a favor and keep it to your self. Dealing with his loss is hard enough without having to read your self serving attempts to make an irrelivnet point. If you want to bitch about a$$h@le drivers, go find an article on something more appropriate...this one is about someone's death. Have a soul and some respect.
Our holidays will be especially sad this year without the presence of Vince's bright smile and comical personality. He is already so painfully missed.

I can't believe anyone would even
Possibly discredit Vince ( one of my best friends) as anything else than a great. Hardworking loving caring responsible person. He always had a smile on his face and could change my mood just by that alone. I sit here at 545 in the am awake thinking about the times I was lucky enough to spend with him. To his family my deepest regrets go out. I can not believe any of this. Just the other day he was sleeping on my couch. As he did probably three out of seven nights. So as I sit here morning and remembering such a great friend and person. Try to remember how precious life is and how horrible it is to say anything about anyone you don't know. I love you chubs man. Forever remembered and never forgotten. Rest in peace Vince. We will meet again someday. For his family. Stay strong. Know he is up there looking down and watching out for all of us. Love and miss you my friend. More than I even know.
