Ummmmm....where in the artical does it say he was drunk??And you have no sympathy??? The ***hole that hit him drove away and left him to die. I think you need to rethink your statement, your day might be coming up as well "dog" !

Wow, talk about weird. If he hadn't left the scene of the first incident, he would not have been hit and killed. I guess there is truth in the saying "when it's your time to go you have to answer the call".

Looks to me like the witnesses in the Durango got the impression Mark was ok. He probably got hit, and walked off because he knew already he was guilty for driving away from a previous hit-run accident. Maybe he was hiding something? Itís a shame, who knows.

Maybe it was like in Final Destination when something was after him and had to outrun it at any cost before it got to him. But then it really did get to him. Maybe? Huh? Huh? Hello?

Originally I laughed at the ironic story 10 days ago. But now I fell bad for his family and his friends. There is no reporting on his relatives or his background. A very ironic but sad way to die. Actions, responsibility, and consequences seem to fit this tragic story. Thankfully the first car's driver was not injured. Hope they get the Durango hit and run criminals.

Mark was critically injured on the spot, he was revived by the EMT who saw the accident. The GUYS that hit him didnt think he was ok...the thought he was already dead. Mark only lived for 12 days because he was strong, and that EMT < Eric Price> saved him long enough so his family could be by his side...but he succumbed to his injuries....
Sorry guys...two wrongs dont make a right here... No matter what. Mark will be missed dearly by his family... I hope these guys are found and JUSTICE is served....Mark didnt deserve to die.
