This should demonstrate to everyone the importance of A) wearing your seatbelt, and B) the inheirent dangers of operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol. What a senseless, and yet completely preventable tragedy.

It is that few of us would trust strangers with our money. Yet every time we drive out onto the road we must trust hundreds of strangers with our lives. It is also true that there are those that have chosen to impair themselves with drugs, alcohol being the most common and the most dangerous.

Every drunk knows that they would not get drunk if they didn't drink. Just a month or so in jail for the first DUI might cause them to choose not to be a terrible danger to others.

We were our way home from the beach, thought we make a overnight exit to beat the traffic. We ran up on this wreck minutes after it occurred and it was horrible. I had no clue people were lost in this wreck but we feared that after seeing the horrible fire. My thoughts and prayers go out to this family. So senseless and sad!

They don't even need a trial with crap like this. All it does is waste our tax dollars on USELESS IDOTS that take away our loved ones such as this. An eye for an eye. Sorry, just the way I feel.....Put him in the can.

Noone needs to drink and drive. Yet, I don't have all of the details of this accident. I am a Christian wife and mother, a God-fearing woman, and know that I am not to judge. I don't know if Phillip was plastered or if he'd had a drink, which increased his blood alcohol level, and made him "drunk". There are so many instances where people will have a drink or a few drinks and are not drunk, yet they still get behind the wheel of a car. This could happen to anyone who does this. Drinking is wrong, in the first place, but let's not be too quick to judge.

I have heard that he was found unconscious in the woods. I don't know if this is true or not, but if it is, he couldn't have ran from the scene.

I understand what you are saying schoolmate, but the law is zero tolerance. Even if you have one drink, you should still not get behind the wheel of a car. My mother always told me to watch out for the other driver and now I see why. As a mother, my life and the life of my son are in another person's hands when driving. I wish everyone else would feel the same way when taking the oath to be a responsible driver. God bless all involved in the tragedy.

Everyone needs to stop and ask themselves before judging Phillip how many times that could have happened to them instead of him.He has alot to live with without everyone juding him for the same thing they have done, but were lucky enough not to get caught.My heart goes out to both of the families and may god bless them all.

I didn't mean not getting caught hurting anyone.What i meant was that almost everyone has driven after having a drink .That could have very easily been one of us instead of Phillip.
