God bless this family in their loss. I had a car full of children with me and we were just minutes behind the accident...it was a sad sight but there were many people stopped trying to help. Putting themselves at risk just being out in the interstate with the traffic...God bless them too. Our interstates are dangerous - even if you're the best driver. My heart goes out to everyone involved.

OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO ROBBIE. WE DIDN'T KNOW DAKOTA BUT WE KNOW HIS GRANDMOTHER LUCY COOK AND SHE IS ABSOLUTELY HEARTBROKEN. LET'S PRAY FOR SIERRA AND HER MOM. WE ARE PRAYING FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY.

O my god. You just dont know how bad I miss Dakota! out of all those cars.. he was the one! it will take me the MOST time to get over the death. but i will NEVER forget you dakota!!! you will ALWAYS be remembered! I know you in gods hands now walking those streets of gold! Its just sad you had to leave SO soon!! you had a very long life ahead of you. You were the AWESOMIST little chicken man anyone could ask for. ha. I miss you dakota! you will ALWAYS be in my hearts. Im sad your gone and I pray for your family. Everything happens the way god planned. I kinda wish I could got to know you a little better, But then again not because I wouldn't want to get attached to you && the all of a sudden .... God. I remember the last time I saw you smile was at Skateaway USA. me && Taelor walked in && you cheesed REAL big &&... now its just..wow i cant believe it actually happened! I was looking at your myspace, And right when i saw your picture.. it was..wow I couldn't stop crying! BOY i miss you!! I wish you could just wish you could come back!. I wish I could RE-WIND time && call harley && tell him to STAY OFF the road.:( but I cant now its already happened! Maybe it I just pretend that NONE of this happened.. Then it didnt. It I ignore att the talk && just think ..no Dakotas just on a vacation. A nice warm BEAUTIFUL vacation. And he'll Never be back!
Well theirs one thing im FORSURE about.. you are MISSED GREATLY!! theirs nothing I wouldnt do to get you back. I would give you my life so you could live yours. im only 13..so what? I dont care. This makes me NEVER want to get close to people, that way when I loose them.. It wont hurt as bad. You were a hyper child. You made me laugh all the time! You really were the best. I cannot even IMAGINE what your family is going through! Theirs noone here and im crying my eyes out becasue Im not good with dealing with death..I wish I could just trade spots with you!! I wish I could!!!! But it's okay!...Your in Gods hands, and I KNOW he'll take WAY good care of you!! I went through the Newspaper today, NOTHING.. not a dang thing! but now I know about it.

I am so sorry you were misguided enough to share this information (if it is true). You should have thought about the people that knew and loved this little one - especially the children. Now you have given them horrible visions they do not deserve to have to deal with. Shame on you!

P.S. Condolences to his family and friends. Think of all the beautiful memories and not the details of the accident.

I am soo sorry to hear about this accident. I work nights, so seeing the news or reading a paper i just haven't done. My thoughts and prayers goes out to the family. May God Bless. As I was reading these posts, my eyes filled up with tears. I have never lost a child, but i have a parent, and I am sure its' not the same. You are in my prayers. May God Bless the Family or Families
