Are you kidding? I went to high school and grew up with these two amazing kids, yes they made an absolute horrific mistake today but you have absolutely no right saying you do not care about what happened -- so many people are grieving because of this horrific loss so if you don't care, thats fine but keep your unnecessary rude comments to yourself.

how dare you! you know nothing about either one of these kids. they were both wonderful kids who loved everyone around them. they have left an empty space in many peoples lives. i only hope you feel the pain of such a senseless loss as the rest of us who loved them. some people should just shut their mouth.

For the young woman in the passenger seat I do have compassion but as far as the driver WHAT was he thinking? What was he doing driving like that? I guess we will have to actually await the toxicology reports before any other assumptions are drawn here. I am done here commenting perhaps I was harsh and seemed like I did not care I have a 20 year old son and when he first started driving yeah I was scared but he has since become a better driver I think that this should be a big wake up call for everyone and maybe they might have an official assembly for all that are affected and for all that could be saved from this kind of behavior that was displayed by the driver. That is all I am going to say on this site I will not be back here as far as your loss I am very sorry

Troopers said O'konski, heading south in a Honda Civic del Sol, was seen passing other cars at least twice in a no-passing zone. To avoid his car, oncoming traffic drove off the road.

After passing a motorcycle and forcing a tractor-trailer onto the shoulder, O'konski returned to his lane, but lost control, over-corrected and struck a pick-up truck heading north, troopers said

YOU CALL THIS AN ACCIDENT YEAH RIGHT

While my heart goes out to their family and friends. That does not mean that this was not an act of total stupidity. Maybe one of his friends or a family member should go to the school and tell the kids about how this senseless act of stupidity ruins the lives of the people they leave behind

I cant believe somthing as tragic as this is getting these kinds of comments. Yes It says the driver was speeding an screwing around. If this is the case, IT SUCKS!! But he was still young an immature. No body has the right to talk about any of them this way. Do any of you think about the family an friends? How they must be feeling? Especially if they read these rediculous comments. No one has the right to judge these young adults. Especially if your not even from around that town. I do hope an pray that the rest of the Hoosic Valley kids learn a lesson from this devastating time. My heart goes out to the family an friends. I pray to keep all of our children safe.
AMEN
