No 25A is a very dangerous street, I was at the party where she was, I saw her said hi..there was something going on everyone was in the street and some jerk came speeding about 75-80mph and there is no street lights out there...she wasn't high or drunk because she was driving that night, it was about 11 the last time I saw her and she said she was leaving and said bye to me just like she did to everyone else, she was walking to her car after the mess in the street was over, she was a good girl and I hope she rests in peace

I don't know who you are but honestly, thats not the truth you weren't there so don't go saying things. I personally was driving therefore i was not drinking, either was Dawn. Yes, 25A is very dangerous but it isn't as busy as the LIE so you can't compare it to that, there are houses off of the LIE and people were having a good time. So stop trying to sound smart because your sounding like a jerk. Oh and they released the driver because they have no proof he was going that fast, they don't believe us because were kids.

You kids can't drink at age 18.
It is illegal. But you don't
give a damn. Hard lesson to learn.

youve got balls standerdized test, i live in syosset and i knew dawn and thats no ordinary street, plus the light in this town are really not very helpful to pedestrians and how dare you speak so rudely about this person, and have no respect for a person. DAWN was going to graduate with us on wed, and she had just won a few scholorships and was a great person and all you can think of is, she should have looked both way. ypu've got alot of nerve.

god bless the leslie family and may you rest in peace dawn.

What is wrong with you. What is wrong with this forum. This young girl is dead. She died before her time and her family is in mourning. Have a little compassion please. It's sad reading some of these comments. It's really sad.

sorry for you lose, I know someone who knows this girl is probably reading these posts. Dont listen to what the other people say. You can drive yourself crazy reading what all these miserable people, and there horrible comments. WOULD THEY WANT SOMEONE TO COMMENT LIKE THAT IF IT WAS THERE RELATIVE OR FRIEND. I went threw this in march when I lost my best friend, and first love in a horrible accident. The girl who was driving made up the ridiculous story, and the newspapers failed to ever mention she was arrested for dwi, endangerment of the wellfare of a child, and driving without a license. So people looked at him and made these horrible comments. One person even went as far to say. Guess he showed her whos boss, the question it how he lived to be 27. So i feel your pain, and just remeber the people who says these things are hiding behind there computers, and would never have the courage to say it to your face. There cowards who just have to add there two cents to everything.

I wasn't trying to sound negative. All I said was 25A is a VERY dangerous street.

Dawn will be forever young.
