So sad but it is life in an area where people must drive long distances to get anywhere. Dark winding roads and poor judgement are a fact of life in the suburbs and farm country. No legislation can prevent logistics.
Why do you accept poor judgement as a fact of life? Just another country bumpkin? The driver had a choice....don't use the road. Cross Kernsville road, it's faster and safer. Faster because you can only travel between 15mph and 30 mph safely on game preserve road.
Please don't make excuses for poor decisions.

So the reality is that when you lose a loved one you are given the green light to be rude and obnoxious to others? I believe it is you who is the moron!!!!

It's a shame that the death of a 21 year old son, brother, and friend bring out so much hate in people. This is certainly not the time to point fingers or judge. Maybe there is time for that later. But, for now, be mature and, if you have nothing kind to say, then do not speak.

I think you people have forgotten that someone died from this incident and that no matter the reason for this tragedy, it is completely irrational to ever suggest that Corbin, or anyone for that matter, ever deserves to parish due to what you claim as irrational thought, it simple is barbaric and I can only hope that you can someday feel the agony of losing someone you love.

An individauls poor judgement, no matter the outcome, does not render any of you the right to such language in respect to this event.

Shame on you fools, Corbin farewell good friend, we will surely miss you.

God, could you please tell me how I can be sure to know that, when I die, I will go to heaven?

Sorry he's dead. But, if it had to happen, better he do it to himself then some innocent person on the road. The test results may not be in, but I will, "bet the house" that he was drunk. He used POOR JUDGEMENT that could have put other innocent people at risk. I feel sorry for him that he was so stupid. Life goes on, but not in his case, maybe a lesson will be learned and his friends will remember this

Wow you just don't get it. He's defending a loved one, yes, who he just lost. Under any circumstance in which a person dies, I find it incrediable how people like you have the GUTS to disrespect a human life.
And please don't responsed to things you know nothing about. I believe the definition for moran is not a person with feeling or compassion or maybe in yours it is.

Sarah darling, in a way, he did ask for it. Anytime you get behind the wheel intoxicated, you are asking for it. I am sure your cousin was amazing, but he is also human and capable of making a mistake. He put himself, his passengers, and other drivers in danger. Your mouth needs to be washed out with soap.
I agree with Sarah 100%. Corbin did not deserve to die. And maybe her mouth does need to be washed out,
but the anger she is feeling right now
is because of your comments. By using that language your just adding fuel to their fire. Their not worth it.
I'm done with all you people.
Rest in peace my dear friend Corbin.

Why are you here? What are you trying to prove? speeding and not wearing a seatbelt is stupid. If you think this was an accident, then you are in the minority.
Using profanity only makes the source look foolish and childish.

True friends don't grieve in public, faux-friends make the show.
sorry but he did

Sarah, my friend, how would your buddy Corbin like it if he knew that you were using the language you were using to grieve him? He is an angel in Heaven now, and I must say that he is disappointed that you are using the "F" word. He wants you to remember happy things about your friendship with him. God chose him!

Honestly, Corbin would have loved the language. I don't feel bad for cursing because there is absolutely no reason for any of you to be saying he asked for it. He made a mistake, ok, but he's gone. The only thing you people deserve to be saying about my family is REST IN PEACE. I hope all of you know that his family found this forum on the day of his funeral. This website is disrespectful. but thanks to all of you who were actually being nice. As for the rest of you, shut up. That is so low that you feel the need to talk sh** on someone who has passed away. I loved Corbin, he was family, and I miss him so much as well as the rest of his family. Maybe if you all understood what it was like to sit and cry for 3 hours with his sister and parents in a funeral home, you wouldn't being saying the nasty sh** your saying, so DROP IT. If his family has to see any more of this, I'm gonna freakin snap.

I think it would be in everyone's best interest to refrain from making comments directed at the young man who lost his life, the family of the young man, and the victims of the accident. We need to be a little more compassionate as a society and allow people to grieve a loss without begin derrogatory towards the incident. It is ok to be upset with the situation, and saddened by the loss, but to attack a victim who has no opportunity to respond...one who lost their life...is heartless and gutless!

The family is upset because they now realize their lack of proper parenting.
This boy shouldn't be dead, the other three shouldn't be messed up for life.
I am apalled by the boys lack of respect for everybody else on the road, evidenced by the outcome of his actions.
I hope everybody reads these comments and learns that juvenile actions resulting in death doesn't earn sadness or respect.

Get your kids off the drugs......oh but that would mean you'd have to kick the habit too........never mind.
