It's a shame that a young girl had to die die so this piece of trash would finally go to jail. They love little skinny white boys who think they are from the hood in jail. Have a nice time Richard!!!

I seem to remember the old addage, "but for the grace of God go I." In fact Grace Fellowship is in Seven Valleys. The former posters seem to think that the ALLEGED driver sonehow meant this to happen. I suggest that it was an accident. True, that does not make it easier, but when all of the facts come out, I'll wager that he was coming or going to work and feel asleep. That's NOT an excuse, but how many times.....and be honest...have YOU almost fell asleep at the wheel.
I grieve for Amanda's family, friends and for a life not known, and for the driver, who has to live with his mistake. Nasty comments are just that nasty comments from nameless people who just want to make an ugly horrible situation worse.
Now go to church on Sunday, and pray that you and your family and friends are NEVER on either side of this incident....and hug your loved ones!

Its a shame we can't take this moron out to I-83 and run some tractor trailers over him a few times. That would be a fitting punishment!
Dumb excuse

Take a look at this clowns driving record. This is the best excuse he could come up with. Should be banned from driving for life. Complete idiot that had his licene revoked for good reason. Continued to drive like before and killed someone. This isn't someone driving home from work on the graveyard shift dozing off. Harold doesn't know squat.

What caused him to "fall asleep"?

Too much booze? Too many pills?

NO ACCIDENT!! He did not have a drivers license, but still made the choice to drive. Had he played by the rules he would not have been on the road.

I think we should just permanently take the license of anyone who kills someone. Sobriety is no excuse.

I think he need to spend alot of time in jail and think of the things he did. For one he should of never got behind the wheel. He hit a neighbor.s porch a while back while driving. He got out of that. I guess he fell asleep on that too. He has been in trouble alot of time. And got off. Hopefully he won't this time. It;s really sad for both family. More sad to the girls family. They losed a daughter.

Ah, again the same poster, but trying to be different. Ha Ha!. This horrible incident only has losers, and I was merely suggesting that ALL of us, you included, could have the same set of facts occur in your life. You however, seem to have a personal interest.....

I feel terrible for this woman her life ended way too soon. And I also feel terrible for her family. And yes it was an accident BUT it could have been prevented for sure people just do what they want with no regard to how it will affect anyone else. I think he need to pay for what he has done how he can live with himself i can not understand. I hope he never gets to drive again he needs to realize what he did and Harold if I did anything like this I could never forgive myself. I have no idea how I would handle it like I said before it could have been prevented

Harold, with all due respect, you don't know diddly!

Check that road before condemning all us who don't believe the Wiegard "fell asleep" story. If he fell asleep, he managed to doze off a TENTH OF A MILE after he made a bend in the road going West on Rt 214. Traveling between 50 and 60 miles per hour, would mean he managed to doze off and reawaken to slam on his brakes 6 SECONDS after he successfully made that last bend in the road. That is a lot to happen within a 6-second time period on a beautiful, sun-filled afternoon.

Or, are you just a family member of Richard and really don't want to know the facts?

Hello everyone. Loosing someone you love is never easy, especially if it was long before their time, and when a tragedy like this one could have been avoided. I have known Richard since we were kids, and he has always been a troubled boy who has never had any help. But the way you guys are talking of him is shameful. No accident? You have to be kidding me. Who would purposely want to kill someone?(aside from all the crazies in the world)
He would never wish to hurt anyone, let alone kill them. Yes, I totally agree Richard should have not been on the road without a license, and I do believe he should be repremanded for that. But what about the city? Couldn't they also be to blame. No, he does not have a good driving record, everyone knows that. So why wasn't something more serious done before this ever happened.
Don't you think the guilt of all of this on his heart is enough? I know I wouldn't be able to bear it. And who says he forgives himself, or knows exactly how he is dealing with this? We are not him.
I couldn't imagine what either family is going through. But remember anyone could be on either side of this situation. That is a risk we all take when we choose to drive.
I will continue praying for the family who lost a daughter, as well as the wiegard family who may also loose their son. My heart goes out to you all.

You could have stopped right there. As you said, this could have been avoided in so many ways; first and foremost, by your buddy staying off the road because of a suspended license.

But the way you guys are talking of him is shameful. No accident? You have to be kidding me. Who would purposely want to kill someone?

Is it that you are naive or simply lack a command of the English language?

Yes, I totally agree Richard should have not been on the road without a license, and I do believe he should be repremanded for that.

And maybe sent to bed without his supper?

But what about the city?

Which is why he needs to be in jail awaiting trial so that he does not disregard his suspension again, cross another line, and kill someone else -- maybe you this time (accidentally, of course).

My heart goes out to you all.
When you get one, save it for someone who cares.
