What a horrible tragedy for these families to endure. May they all find all some kind of peace as the years go on. RIP Meredith, Hannah, Sara , Bailey and Katie. May your memory always live on in the hearts of the ones that loved you.

I agree, my husband is a truck driver, I can't imanage him dealing with this kind of tragedy

Allen....I could not agree with you more...I feel very bad for the girls and their families also however there also was another person involved in this that in no fault of his own probably thinks and dwells on that accident every single day of his life!!

The parents would NEVER admit that text messaging might have been a cause.

And why would we give money to "Honor" stupidity???

Such a tragedy. And yet my family stared in amazement as a car with four laughing teens drove through a red light yesterday while the driver was talking on a cellphone. Lessons learned? I think not.

When are people going to realize that we don't learn from other people's mistakes because HUMAN NATURE IS TO THINK THAT IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN TO US!

The only thing good about this incident is that they didn`t kill some innocent slob driving in the opposite direction. Think about that when you see an oncoming car full of stupid teenagers not paying attention to what they`re doing.

What is the point of this article? To "remind us" of the tragedy? Those who NEED to be reminded could care less- and that would be the idiot teen drivers who continue the same stupidity that lead to the deaths of these 5.
The article had no substance whatsoever other than to state it has been two years. So what?

Tastee Freeze - Why is this a race issue? I can only imagine the backlash if I wrote a comment saying that it is good that the black population is "thinning the herd" when another "black gansta" kills another "wannabe" on a city street. What an ignorant fool you are. Yes, I am a white, surburban mother from the eastside. So bring on the hate .. I can take it!
We've been taking the hate from you's for how long now??? And did you fail to see all the racist comments from whites on these, and failed to correct your own people??? Seem you can give hate, but not take it??

It's tragic, but teens are dying all the time in car accidents. Ye s5 dies together, but this is no isolated. I fail to se the need to dredge htis up every year. we should be doing that then for all teens who tragically die in the prime of life. I wonder if it is because they are from Fairport and not from Jay street?

while i wouldnt wish this on anyone, what makes these five more important than anyone else. henry rivera died at the same time, at the hands of a drug addict driving the wrong way! these girls shouldnt be put on a pedestal, they were more responsible for the outcome.

The problem is with New York State requirements for driving. And Mommy and Daddy should have provided little princess with a vehicle that handled well rather than some unwieldy SUV with atrocious mannerisms

Its the same thing with missing kids, that white Brit girl from chili and her mom were more responsible for her disappearing then the current 5 missing city black kids. But nobody see it that way.

They even called them the "Five Angels", lol
All they said about Henry was that he worked at Wegmans.

None of these girls could have been German. Germans have the Autobahn in their blood.

nice post, i agree with you.

what makes me mas is you still see this going on every day when you drive down the road,just makes me mad.
i thought we had laws against useing a cell phone or texting, i guess their are more important things for the police to do than issue a ticket to some one for this.

Katie Shirley was an only child. I just thought you should be reminded of that . . .
