The sentinel puts that MJ was ejected from the car, he wasn't and they had to cut the guys out of the truck, and they also say that BJ was n the hospital in critical condition but he only had a broke are y does the sentinel have to over exaggerate things????

MJ IS LIKE MY BROTHER. HIS FAMILY AND MY FAMILY GREW UP TOGETER. YES HE MADE A BAD MISTAKE BUT HE DIDNT DESERVE THAT. HE WAS THE MOST RESPECTABLE MAN YOU WOULD EVER MEET. ALSO HOW MANY OF YOU DIDNT DO STUPID STUFF WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG. SO STOP WITH THE COMMENTS ITS, IT IS NOT NESSACRY BECAUSE YOU DID NOT KNOW ANY OF THEM.

Narrative from the Florida Highway Patrol press release: "V1 (vehicle one) overturned several times causing the driver to be ejected." Federal regulations make it difficult to get patient information, but FHP supplied info that BJ Dreggors was in critical condition.

In life we all do stupid things, i know we all do not use the best judgement when driving. I didnt know MJ personally, but my Brother Nay Nay and his wife Jenn did. I heard so many stories of MJ. He was a well liked young man. My heart goes out to Bubba and Amy at their time of sorrow. No parent should ever have to endure the death of a child. I have read many comments on here, some i agree with and others, well its a shame that stupidity tends to come in huge numbers. MJ will never be forgotten and he will forever live in the hearts of his family and friends and all the others he may of come in contact with in his short 19 years. We are always so quick to judge and critisize and jump to conclusions when we do not know the facts, instead of being hateful, keep the family in your hearts and prayers, and remember one day if could happen to you. I know everyone has to tell their side, he said , she said, get over it. The point is a young man has died, yes it was untimely, and yes it could of been prevented, but it has happened. Im sorry for your loss Bubba and Amy. Know that your family is in our hearts.

MJ was a through and through good guy. He will be miss Everyday, and he will remain now and forever in our hearts. I've known MJ since Elementary school, and this tragic accident just proves " Only the Good die young". Until the day we all meet you again in Heaven MJ. We love you man. Rest in Peace. "AS the years pass since we've seen you last, we are one day closer to seeing you again" WE Love You MJ !

If you can sit there and honestly say you follow all the rules of the road everyday and never go 1 mile over the speed limit, then amen to you. The point is a young man lost his life. I didnt know MJ personally, but my brother Nay Nay and his wife Jenn did. I have heard of so many stories of MJ. He was a well liked and a well loved young man. The fact of the matter is yes, this could of been prevented, yes the boys didnt use good judgement, but why cant you just be there for the family?Fleda had lost a husband, Bubba and Amy have lost a son, Billy and Dylan have lost a brother, my brother has lost a dear freind. So before you sit there and past judgement on MJ, remember that they were young boys and it could happen to you. I have read all of these post, some I agree with. Many I do not, there is alot of stupidity in this world. My hearts go out to the Dreggors family at there time of sorrow. No parent should ever have to endure the pain of losing a child. There is more hate going on in this world that needs to be addressed then to critisize a young man who was taken from this world to soon. Bubba and Amy, you are in our hearts and prayers, always...

No one is perfect. There are two families hurting right now, one more than the other. For Amy & Bubba, the loss of their is completely shocking and very hard to have to take. For BJ's family, they have to see if he will make it and recover from that fateful night.
Truth is, there are so many factors that go into the actions we take & the decisions we make in everyday life. Sometimes people don't realize the severity of their actions, which is human.
To all the people posting comments that are less than sensitive, you need to stop it. It's a terrible thing, losing a family member. I know that because I lost my dad a year ago in June.
I will keep both families in my prayers as it is a diffucult time for them.

Bubba and Amy, words can't express the sympathy I feel towards you and the rest of your family. It's been a while , but last time I saw both of you at the Diner all you both could talk about was MJ and how good he was doing. I'm so sorry to hear such tragic news.

MJ- Thanks for all the great times and for TRYING to teach me how to manuver an airboat! You will be greatly missed by many... RIP

Words can not express the sorrow M.Js Family is feeling. I never met mj but twice in his short life once when he was a Baby and once when My son brought him to my job , for breakfast. We all do stupid things in our life, we were lucky, we survived. My heart goes out to Bubba,Amy,Billy and Dillan, his annts and uncles and His Wife.
The gates of heaven will open for M.J.tomarrow and at that gate will be his
great Grandfather
Great Grandmother(nanny)
and his Grandmother Ann
Amy my thoughts are with you and Bubba and my prayers. M.J. will always be with the both of ya.
I am so sorry for your Loss he will be missed by all whom loved him.

Thank god he didn't kill anyone innocent. Irresponsibility and youth.
Perhaps his much older wife should have been watching the youngster that night.

Oh, they were getting divorced.

No, I don't have any consideration for irresponsible drunken idiots. I have lost several loved ones to idiots like this guy. Once again, glad he didn't kill anyone innocent and that he only killed himself.

RIP MJ
May time lighten the heavy load on your hearts family and friends. MJ lived life on the edge. It was bound to happen and I'm thankful no innocent people were hurt.
All I can hope for is he didn't suffer long.
Interesting how no one is expressing sympathy for his wife.
