I went down this stretch of road just before this wreck occurred. It was very treacherous and slick. Anyone could have had the misfortune of losing control with those conditions. Because this young man may have been priveleged or spoiled does not justify unwarranted persecution. Yes, he screwed up and the consequences were tragic,however he deserves the right to have his day in court and be judged by a jury of his peers. Trying him in a public forum benefits no one, including the victims families.
He was A)driving without a valid license = crime B)paying more attention to his DOG in the BACKSEAT than he was to the very poor road conditions = stupidity - plain and simple! He does deserve to be punished...yes. Does he deserve harrassment - NO. To his cousin Amber - I can 100% sympathize with your family. My sister-in-law is currently in jail awaiting trial for a horrific crime and like this story here, there were several very cruel, judgmental comments made by people who only know what the media reports....they do not know the whole story. I hope your family will ignore the ignorant, judgmental comments and move on. Support your loved one the best you can while he faces the punishment for his actions. We can all agree he does need to be punished....but let the judicial system punish him...no need for public crucifixtion as well.

The roads were no factor in this accident. He admitted to taking his eyes off the road to check on his dog in the back, thus resulting to him CROSSING the middle line, hitting the famiy head on and killing everyone. OHP even said the roads were not a factor so your comment is pointless. He did not have a license, he had drugs on him, he had no thought of human life he may impact by driving. If you don't have a license, don't drive!! Had he abided by the law, this family would still be here today. Shame on you for not thinking about the victims but standing up for this punk who got behind the wheel knowing he shouldn't and MURDERED this family.

You are very correct. Most of the people in here are very judgmental and critical. I almost hope that they end up the subject of one of these blogs, reason doesn't matter. Maybe they will see how it is to be on the receiving end. Most of them are as bad as they claim he is. I am by no means saying he should not be punished by the law. He has hurt many people on both sides of the wreck. Not only the families of the victims who have lost some people they love very much, but also his own family who are dealing with the shame of having him do what he chose to do. He knew what he was doing was wrong but chose to drive anyway. It is his fault, not just an accident. He chose to take the risk when he got behind the wheel of the car. His bad choice led to the death of this family. I will continue to pray for all of them. Maybe he will learn something. I hope so, but I will be watching to see how it plays out in the courts.
