My daughter will be an 18 year old junior simply because she started grade K at age 6 instead of 5. Your comment has no relevance and is inappropriate...but then you already knew that and is why you chose to post it. Perhaps if you had waited until you were 6 for grade K, you wouldn't be as socially inept.

My heart goes out to the family and friends of this kid..

That being said--I agree with jbd612--why don't people take 2 seconds to buckle their seat belt? It's amazing the number of stories on traffic fatalities we read about that end up mentioning the fact that, "the driver was not wearing a seatbelt".

God Bless the family..rest in peace young man.

Safety Belt, Safety Belt, Safety Belt.... if for no other reason is it is the LAW.... like it or not... but he was 18 and legally old enough to make his own decisions. No way to prove he would have survived if he had been wearing his Safety Belt... but now we will never know.

Some people complained when the government passed a law making seat belt use mandatory. They complained when car manufacturer made all cars with seat belt alarms. They don't like to be told that they have to wear one. They make excuses and site the rare occasions that seat belts contributed to a problem.

But, who among those people will accept responsibility for the deaths that could have been prevented had they set a better example? Did they show others, especially adolescents, that seat belts are important? Or, did they show impressionable youngsters that it's their right to not wear them? How many tragedies must happen to silence the detractors?

I didnt kno auston real well but i remember i played baseball against him at Babe Ruth and he seemed to have haert in the game. He never gave up and he played hard. Whenver they was losing he kept the team from giving up and he always had confidence. Auston will always be with us & watching us for the rest of our lives. Like I told somebody yesterday "Auston will always be in your heart and soul, hes always going to be watching you." But Auston will be loved and remembered by alll the loved ones and ones like me that barely knew him but had a past with him.

Auston was my cousin's best friend. Terrible tragedy - never let a day pass without telling your friends and family that you love them.

I didn't re-read this article to see what day of the week it was, but when I was in High School I worked on the weekends and even weekdays towards then end of the school year when I was out of school at 6AM. So we don't know his story, maybe he had a reason. 5:30 AM is not all that bad, 2AM I would understand the concern.
