i'm only listing "speeding" because that may be the factor that caused the accident.
We don't know if drugs or alcohol was involved.
No one knows what consequences would of been put in place by his parents if he was caught when he returned home.
Unfortunately, with the outcome, no one will ever know.
WE all know there are parents who are too busy partying all night themselves and they don't care what kids do, then we have parents who do try and care but yet want to be their friends and don't discipline, and we have parents that will kick their kids a ** when they get home and most likely it won't happen again.
I don't know - i won't pass judgment, because God Forbid my kids make that same bad choice and i'm one parent who still grounds their kids and make them face consequences, but they still test us as parents.
All we can do is try and they learn from their mistakes, but we all have to pray that a bad choice does not result with someone getting hurt or killed.
But it can happen to anyone of us - no matter where we live !!
You did it again, you write a big long story, and left out the fact that he did NOT have a drivers license to be driving at that hour.
Why you leave that out???

Recently I spoke to a member of the family affected by this horrible tragedy. I can tell you this, everyone involved in this, one way or
another are in a tremendous amount of
greif. The teens involved with this
accident were good kids. Who used
bad judgement. It is believed as it
said in the original article that neither alcohol or drugs were involved. Just young people, who plain
and simple used bad judgement. I know
for a fact none of the parents condoned the driving after hours, in fact they were sleeping when the young
people went out without their knowledge. I couldn't imagine how
horrible everyone involved in this
feels. But I know this, all parties
need our prayers not our judgement.

Of coarse all white kids in the burbs are "good kids" no matter what.

And the first article did not say that drugs and alcohol were not involved. It said they "don't think it was".

I don't address it because I don't care. At this point in time, it no longer matters.

Its a tragedy and i'm not passing judgment on bad/wrong decisions that kids will make.

I guess, only if i had perfect kids who never screw up, then i'd be making comments, but i'd rather have what i have and keep my mouth shut and just keep those families like mine, in my thoughts and prayers.

It was so sad this young life was taken away like this. I don't want to preach or anything here at this sad time, but I hope all young people and their parents stop to think about actions they take from now on. I firmly believe 17 is too young to drive. If that child gets a PT job, then the parents should be more flexible in their schedules to help them out. In these instances, no parents were monitoring the hours and I'm not just on the parents of the driver. Passengers and their parents have to use the same reasoning. Take an interest in your children and be ever watchful of them. They're all we have and they're precious.
