Maybe you should have a heart and not make jokes about something so tragic. Try losing two sons to car accidents.
RIP Vento <3

I'm so sorry. His brother was my good friend and we lost him 7 years ago this summer. Now this family has to endure yet another horrific tragedy. Please people have a heart before posting your thoughtless comments. This family needs your prayers not your idiotic statements. God Bless the Vento family.

How dare anyone say anything negative about this situation. You have No idea what was going on and why his seatbelt wasnt on. The nerve of people to point fingers and say they must teach there children better. If you knew anything someone had ran a stop sign and killed the first son who was wearing a seatbelt.

Can you sit here and tell me you have never gone one mile over the speed limit. I am sure you ARE NOT PERFECT. Try going through a tragic event like this twice. Shame on anyone who has no heart and consideration for what could of led up to these events. People make me sick and for those that wrote such negative comments ..get some help on how to speak to people. Its scary that people like you can influence other peoples lives and if you have children.. i hope they dont turn out like you.

A seatbelt and airbag help to keep you in the car and not in the roadway.

Wearing a seatbelt isn't an option, its the LAW.

May God pour out his grace, peace and love on the Vento family.

I can't even believe the negative things people are writing on here. No one has any right to say anything bad about someone especially if you do not know the person or the situation. I happen to know Anthony was an amazing guy and maybe he was speeding and possibly not wearing his seatbelt.. but who knows maybe he was in a rush or it just slipped his mind... don't act like it never does with you because no one is perfect. Right now the Vento family needs our support and prayers not such harsh cruel words. I'll also prayer for the people saying such hurtful negative things and hope that you'll be able to have a kinder heart. You don't know the details so please just be respectful.
God Bless

My condolences to the family. However, when the first son died, the second son should have taken the hint. SLOW DOWN!

How dare you even say such a thing. You are a cruel and miserable person. I imagine you to be a depressed individual that needs mental help. People like you are the reason our world is screwed up.

There are some real losers posting negative messages here. Obviously they are lonely people, sick, fat, unliked, ect. They need to get a life of their own. So just take a moment from your pathetic lives to show some class.
The Vento's are really the nicest people i know, a great family, and this just seams unfair that they need to deal with another tradgedy.

What sick and evil people inhabit my space here on Long Island. It makes my skin crawl the coldness and heartlessness all around me. You will get yours. We all eventually have to pay for our words and deeds. You will pay
These comments are tame compared to what I've read in the past. As an aside, the LIE Service Road is generally a race to beat other drivers to the next light. The speed limit is on average 30-40 MPH. I installed extra brake lights on my car in an attempt to slow down the tailgaiters a little. RIP, I feel bad for that poor family for their tragic loss.

The Vento family has suffered a terrible loss and for anybody to be making insensitive comments is just plain heartless. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and I am very sorry for their loss. No parent should have to experience the loss of a child.
