Are these accidents really news anymore? Drivers are asking for it. They drive recklessly while on the phone, and looking out the side window.

Once again, inexperienced teen driver, excessive speed, talking on cellphones, text messaging & twittering. All of these contribute to another young teenagers death. This will never end. Another heartbroken family prepares to bury a child, every parents worst nightmare. Condolences to the Tunney family on their loss & hopefully a full recovery to the ones that were injured. Please folks slow down. get off the freakin phone, watch your speed, etc. We don't need any more fatalities or injuries, there's enough already.

She was tailing you... You are not suppose to "tail" anyone. And you admitted to speeding. I hope you told the cops this. Because now I am sure there will be lawsuits. But by you saying "sped and tailing" this is now on the record. It proves that speeding and stupidity caused the accident. Teens have to be more cautious!!!

That's just the kind of reckless driving that put you in the hospital and killed your friend. Pure stupidity on the driver's part. Again, another sad but preventable event that you will learn nothing from.

Now that you've cleared that up for us, its still stupidity that got your friends where they are now.

Are you sure you don't mean "I'm ashamed that my mommy and daddy pay the same taxes as you"?

That is disrespectful, a family is going through more pain at this moment than most people will ever experience in their lifetime, and it's only worth a joking, one-word comment to you.
