Complete ignorance. The 16 year old driver should be punished - and why in gods name would they take the 8 year old to an apartment before calling 911 - Obviously not very bright kids.

They were both kids who made a mistake. Clearly some parental or adult guidance would've been nice. It's easy to judge after something horrible like this has happened. Just try to remember they were both kids and imagine how the family feels now. I will pray that the boy isn't suffering from life threatening injuries and will make a full, speedy recovery and that his brother will learn from this mistake and not be too hard on himself.

What does race have to do with this? What an irrelevant and random comment! This could have happened to anybody. Kids are going to be kids... accidents happen; some worse than others. It's easy for people watching from a distance to tell the parents they should have prevented this from happening. Parents can't hold onto their children's hands until they turn 18. I hope the boy recovers. My prayers go out to the family!

All kids do this - Michael J Fox made it popular in the 80's with the Back to the Future movies. Be careful about judging the 16 yr old - I'm sure the horrible guilt he is inflicting upon himself is more more of a punisment than a judgmental person like yourself could ever begin to impose on him. And, possibly he ran a few yards to the apartment to call 911. I hope you are never in a high-stress situation like this and have your intelligence questioned - you may not fare well either.

The boy driving the truck is not his brother. The 16 year old is the son of the 8 year old father's girlfriend.

Yep, no speeding without a drivers license, no drugs, no guns, just goofing around and keeping to themselves. An unfortunate accident and a huge lesson to be learned thats for sure. I bet they won't do that again unlike those "other" kids. I bet the older brother feels like crap. Prayers go out to both of them.

Where are the parentsat? This is crazy, why would you allow your child to this. I think the brother would deserve to have charges. Coming from knowing and speaking on behalf YOU CANT REPLACE YOUR CHILD. I understand if this is not posted sorry had to vent.

Jenny, you are a retarded dumb a#s c#nt, I rarely use that word but for you there seems to be nothing more fitting than that deplorable word. I feel sorry for your ignorance because it has more than obviously passed onto your son. I am actually thankful that my insurance company paid out what they did into a trust fund for your son because given his level of intelligence, I sincerely doubt that he will ever graduate from college, let alone high school. I'm also glad that it was given to him in a trust fund in order to keep your drug addicted ass from using it to support you and your boyfriends low lives as# out from living under a bridge. Now go f#ck yourself and have a nice day, loser!
