Stupid for riding a scooter on Wellwood avenue. That road is a disaster. With so many side streets and parks, this idiot chose that road at that time.

Iím not here to ďtrash talkĒ him. Iím here to question his common sense and question if he was ever taught not to jump in front of cars or get in the way of them on the road. Someone has to be brain dead to play on a scooter on Wellwood during rush hour.
Why would people come to you in school? Are you the drug dealer there?
Iím glad I didnít get dozens of text messages about this.
It is important if this was his fault. It was his fault and the driver wasnít charged with anything or even issued a ticket. If anyone that does anything stupid enough to get themselves hurt or killed then yes, they deserve what they get. The blame lies somewhere and in this case itís all on him and his parents. They're paying now.
my brother was crossing the strret he was in the green crosswalk while he was crossing it was red then in he middle of crossing it turned green he didnt realize nd teh car started to speed ahead soo b4 you start sayin my brother must have brian damage to b crossing the strret he did basically have th eright away b/c now he may have brian damage hopefully he wont but you had too be a dick nd say that that is messsed up i think unless you kno what happen you should shut utr mouth cuz my brother didnt deserve this he is a ghood kiddd

once again.. does anyone really know what really happened? This boy was not playing in the street..he was acting on inpulse to help someone else. Yes he was not thinking when he went into the street without looking but just remember that he was just reacting to a situation. He is not an idiot or stupid. I agree that these kids should not be hanging out on wellwood ave and I agree their parents should know what they are doing but all kids on wellwood are not "bad" kids. the village should also do something about them being there but they don't. does any of the blame lie with them? by the way oreo. bergen point is in west babylon..not lindenhurst. You and slappy are a poor excuses for a human beings.. how do you know this boy is not a civilized human being? you know nothing about him or his family because if you did you would know that this was a tragic accident. How about you be civilized and pray for this poor boy and his family.
WHAT was the incedent that made him do this? What situation was he trying to help. Or is this a made up item for sensationalism???

i lived in lindenhurst all my life. the town is crazy. noone slows down even at the light or when people are crossing. i feel bad for the boy and his family and the parents need to take action against the person who hit there son. and that person was on the phone so what does that tell you.
It's true what you say about people NOT slowing down. In Babylon, Sayville and other villages, people slow down through the town. I live right off of Wellwood Ave. When I turn onto Wellwood I drive under 30 mph and the people are PISSED OFF. TOO BAD. They drive 50-55 down wellwod ave until they get to John Street when driving south and THEN MAYBE they go 35-40.
I'd love to see traffic patrol on Wellwood. We should hire a Village cop just for that. We would make his salary 10 times over in a week or two.

Swindlehurst is a ghetto the crazy crack head drivers do not slow down in Swindlehurst. Boats parked illegally in street block views of the road, illegal unregistered cars all over. Illegal appartements, section 8 houses, wellfare depression. Lindehurst is the ghetto - no on respects there property or the road.

Swindlehurst: I say turn this area in to a rehab center for ghetto re-tart skells plunger monkeys. Or give the residents guns to do drive by shootings. This area is all Ghetto, turning darker and darker everyday: You can soon develope film in Swindlehurst it will be so DARK

Only Swindlehurst has a POO Burning plant called (Bergen Point) - they cook burn poop in Bergen Point, the smell in Lindehurst is unbleavable, you would think it is the residents, but the poop residu from Bergen Point sticks to the parents, dead beat dads, crack head moms, wellfare parents. The residents of Swindlehurst like to think the poo plant is in Babylon but it is right on the border line. Ghetto Ghetto Ghetto

You people make me completely sick. This is just a forum for you to be the Judge of who has the better judgment at the time. Like, you never made a mistake? Try having kids!!! You can't control everything they do, you can only hope they listen to 1/2 of what you say. The fact is a 14 year old boy is seriously hurt, his parents are feeling like, "what they could have done to prevent it and the driver is feeling like if I could have done to prevent it?" The driver is thinking if I could have only taken 1 second longer! Stop judging everyone in the story and realize this is a serious tragedy and God help them all get through it. The hell with all you righteous people. Your Memorial Day weekend will be like all the others but not for these people, you think they ASKED for this? You are despicable! What are you Mr. and Mrs. PERFECT!!!!

What level of ignorance does it take to apply a stereotype to residents of a town? That's stupid, as it always has been. Massapequa man is probably some spoiled rich piece of shit that was given everything he wanted as a kid and hasn't had any kind of actual exposure to the world around him. I don't live in anything close to a ghetto. I live in a well kept ranch, and I have a regular cleaning service and landscapers to keep it in nice condition. If THIS is the ghetto, I'd hate to see what the actual ghetto looks like. Since when is lindenhurst all about welfare and cars on front lawns? That's crazy, I've never seen that in the 11 years I've lived here. Sorry we all can't live in massapequa and sniff coke with hundred dollar bills all day, you rich spoiled scumbags.
