This happened to a 20 year old at 4:35AM. I'm sure he wasn't speeding or drinking before this happened. I think he was just trying to get to church early.

Probably swerved to miss a deer or bunch of loose dogs running in a pack as many of us who live out this way have seen. When you are from Western Suffolk, you don't think of these things if you aren't out here that much.

Shame on those who posted negative comments in this column. This is a sad and tragic event regardless of the cause. A human being died. Parents lost a child. Friends lost a friend.

Shame on Topix for publishing them as well.

God bless you Steven. Your Mom was so proud of you. May God be with her and your family during this time of suffering.

Shame on all of you who post your disgusting comments here. Obviously you have never lost a family member or friend. Try a little compassion. Try to act like a human being. I agree with Evan, shame on you Topix for allowing this kind of hurtful garbage. I wonder if there is a lawsuit for defamation of character or mental anguish. It offends me as a family friend.

Steven be at peace in heaven.

Very tragic , sorry for the family and friend loss, loosing him is terrible but maybe some good can come out of it hopfully , to his friends slow down life is not going anywhere , speed was an issue, u could here him coming and tires squeeling around the turn , and please wear your seat belt , might have helped save him , have seen many accidents on this road,live there, ones wearing seat belt always seem to make it out , without not much of a chance
