can't quickly assume speeding. It could also be that the driver was drunk, sleepy, or had to dodge an animal or vehicle.

Quit blaming the road. The DRIVER is responsible for his or her own actions.

ummm, this is the first time I've heard about this type of situation in Sacramento, in fact the whole state of California. Although I agree with you on the guard rail, I am having trouble seeing how other drivers haven't already plunge into the river?
AMEN

Oh they have, speed was usually the factor.

my manners...my condolances to the families of each child. I understand that the death is the worst, but the driver must be crushed and the passangers must be tramatized.

this is very sad, I've driven all the delta roads that are out here. Hwy 160 has gaurd rail on all of the levee roads next to the river, this stretch of road is not owned by the state, it's owned by the county. You cannot put gaurd rail on this stretch of road, because you have farm land and it's very narrow, on one side the river on the other, it's like thtat on all the levee roads. There are so many crosses along this stretch of high way. And on the county side due to people not paying attention or had a little too much to drink. My prayers go out the family and friends that have lost them.

If you want the government out of your life be responsible for your actions. No guardrails needed.

Did they learn to drive at Bella Vista ?-- No wait they didn't kill innocent people
A guard rail is stupid --- that would just cause them to bounce off and probably hit someone else - Why do humans constantly try to protect the idiots in their DNA pool rather than just be glad they are out of it

On a road like that at three a.m. I'd say drinking and speed was a factor. Some people will never learn.

3 P.M....afternoon. Just after school, perhaps? Young, inexperienced, and tragically unfortunate. My heart breaks for all involved.

People, read the news again and look at the photographs being released. No plowed vegetation on the side of the road, and no upturned rocks. That means, the car did not dive into the river at low speed.It went flying at high speed into the water. The delta road is not for speeders, it's narrow, lots of curves, and blind spots. Don't blame on what the government failed to do, blame those people who failed to exercise common sense (slow down please and observe posted speed limit!)when travelling in ANY kind of road.

11:00 news reported the group was seen at a park drinking before they jumped in the car and sped away passing people at 90+mph. One boy taken from the vehicle admitted he was drinking, can bet the driver was too. Sad story, but another lesson learned. Stupid actions yield horrible reactions. I personally think they need to go back to showing movies like Red Asphalt in drivers ed. Only newer updated versions to turn a teens stomach on his/her inside out.
