Your high horse is dangerous. Careful you might fall. Your not sorry. It's just an intro for you to expound from your superior mind. I'd rather die doing something I like rather than spend my life looking down my nose from my safe little life. I think Jeopardy is on. Hurry you might miss it.

No matter how it happened it is always a tragedy when a 19 year old dies. My condolences go out to his family and friends.

Oh now come on... you can't tell me you never did anything as a 19 year old that was not "stupid". I thank my luck stars when I think back at some of the stuff we (me and my friends) did as teens.
And then, you are going to try to convince all of us that you are a perfect driver. You never speed, you have never cut someone off (by mistake of course), forgotten to signal, been distracted, done anything stupid? Are you some kind of saint we don't know about or are you just that judgmental and flapping your mouth! Give me a break, you are the stupid one. My heart goes out the the family and friends of this young man. May you rest in peace

I was invincible at 19, too bad your wisdom is so limited that it does not stop you from such unkind comments. My condolences to the family

It's relevant because this person is only replying so they can vent their pet peeves about other drivers. Probably spend most of their time looking for people on cell phones instead of paying attention to their driving.

Our condolences to the family. Unless the young man was driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, he wasn't driving illegally. The coronert will determine if that was a condributing factor. The investigating aganercy will probably inspect the vehicle for its mechanical condition prio to the crash. No helmet nor seat belt required while driving off road on private property. Just an example of a lack of common sense. Plenty of that to go around but not illegal.

Sad. My sympathy to his loved ones. My guess is he was just out having fun on a Friday night. Does anyone here have any good ideas about how to convince young adults they are mortal?

If you don't agree, don't act as stupid as the person you disagree with.

It's such a sad and tragic thing to have happened. I've known Keil since I was 13. He was a great person. May he rest in peace.
