I moved to Cecil County from Baltimore City hoping to raise my 3 children in a safer environment. I lived 4 doors down from Chris. He was a very nice young man and the fact that this 46 year old man took the lives of these precious 18 year old angels is devastating. I hope he gets 3 counts of manslaughter and I pray that these young boys went straight to heaven. It is so sad. I have heard many horror stories about this section of route 40. An intensive invetigation into the traffic light of red toad and rte 40 needs to be done asap!

I knew all 3 since middle school. I moved away my junior year to pa and soon found out about the crash. Me, Ciera and Randy were really good friends in eighth grade. Doing videos for our science class at Randy's house and she was just an amazing girl. I knew Chris from high school as well.. we had many classes together including art. which was a fun time because randy was also in the class. she moved in the middle of the year. I miss them all and wish the families all the best. You guys will be missed and you made an impression on everyones lives you were in.

This accident was a terrible incident. It happened right down the street from my house. I can see that intersection from my garage. I left just 5 minutes before it happened and crossed that same intersection....came back awhile later to find the accident scene. just terrible....30 years is not enough of a sentence.

They weren't "precious angels". They were on the path to be more Cecil Co trailer park trash druggies / thug wanna be's. Read through the posts above. English is a second language. Good, brilliant kids go off to college and become professionals, doctors, scientists and they get no acclaim. Some dead beats get wiped out in a jeep and the roaches come out of the woodwork to make them angels. There are no angels, no bongs in the sky .. just ashes and worm food.
So because they didn't always make the best decisions in life that gives you the right to judge them? Or tell their parents and friends how to feel about them? Or even put their personal struggles on blast for the world to see? May you never have family or loved ones that die before they've begun to live or have to struggle with addiction. I can see that your young, so just incase your mom didn't tell you, don't speak Ill of the dead it's in bad taste. And quite frankly these families have suffered enough. Life isn't the same when you have to go to a grave yard for your babies 20th birthday and wonder how bad it hurt or if they even saw the jeep before it hit them. Or wonder if they would one day go to college, have families of there own. But I'm sure you thought a lot about all this before you posted such cutting words, after all they've been dead a few years now and you must have searched to find this thread. Shame on you.
