don't you just hate that when light poles just jump out in front of moron kids who never learned to drive correctly and are driving way too fast.
see this moron kid got killed so he never gets to learn from his dumb mistake.
parents have a hole in thier life never can recover from that loss.
way too many kids get killed on American highways because they never learned to drive corectly defensively.
Drivers ed needs to be improved, more hours with professional instuctors who can shape driving attitudes in young morons.

who cares what You think or if you think. just remember I am alive driving great every day and the dead person we are talking about is dead because he acted like a fool behind the wheel lost control of his car.
For the record yes I have lost people close to me in auto collisions but those were not accidents. Accidents are incidents that are unavoidable like a tree falls on your car, or pavement collapse under the weight of your car.
Collisions like this event resulting in death or injury with cars like the one we are talking about are the result of people ignoring common sense driving laws driving too fast or laws of physics.
if you cut a car in half when you hit a pole you are driving way too fast and just out of control. Remember the pole did not jump out in front of his car. He lost control and hit the pole.
All of those auto related deaths were and are avoidable if the morons driving the cars have had better driver training, better attitude adjustments, better under standing of the big picture when they drive.
better driver training, better attitude adjustments may have kept this fool alive. He doesn't get a chance to collect this mistake.
I am a professional driving instructor with 30 years experience
teaching the smith system of defensive driving training I have driven over a million miles here and abroad and there isn't a scratch on any of my cars, no dead passengers no dead poles or trees.
I feel bad for the families of those killed, they loose and are left with a hole in lives and hearts that can't be fixed.
but remember grasshopper this whole sad event was avoidable if the driver had only..........

for the record
Lost a friend in High school because he thought he could beat an Illinois Central comuter train across the tracks.
really lame ill advised action. his brother almost died in the same crash. car totaled train was fine.
then had a cousin who was a marginal poor driver to begin with but thought he was Roger penski or bat man.
well cuz got behind the wheel of an army jeep at Ft ord back in the 50's over drove his marginal driving abilities turned the jeep over killed him self and broke his parents hearts.
they and the rest of his family never recovered from his foolish mistake
moron should not have been behind the wheel of anything.
anyone who knew him did not want to be in car while he was driving
which tells you something about his lack of driving skill set.
collisions like those are totally advoidable better driver training could have save those lives and the misery the deaths caused.
have no sympathy for drivers acting like fools they get what they deserve
