I have known David for many years and he has always been a respectful kid; I was very surprised to find that he was involved.

My questions to you car owner: Was the car in your driveway or garage? Where were the keys?

Your opinion; not that it's that much.

Nature often gives us second chances; that's why they are still alive! You never got a second chance? Let me get my violin...

Why is everyone being so judgemental about the parents? Where were YOU at 2:30 this morning? I was sound asleep and I assume my 13 year old was as well. How would I know if he snuck out and stole a car? Do you watch your teenager sleep? Who would imagine that kids this young would do this?
And why are you all so angry with these kids? You should all be ashamed of yourselves! Can you honestlly say that when you were a teenager you never did anything that you look back on now and think "OMG What was I thinking?" It's in their contract to do stupid things! It's in our contract as parents to try to protect them as best we can - but c'mon, how do you stop a kid if he's hell-bent on destruction. Sneaking out at night has been going on since Romeo & Juliet's time.
It is what it is, and I just thank the Good Lord that these kids survived. I'm praying for them and for their poor parents who, I'm sure, aged 20 years last night. When you all get your heads out of your backsides, maybe you could try doing the same.

I too have known David and his family for years-from camping and the SVFD. I was shocked when I found out. They are such a nice family. My heart goes out to them.

The children face grand theft auto charges, driving without a license, possible breaking and entering (if they got the car out of the garage), curfew violation (if there is one in Simsbury) and whatever else goes along with what they did.
One or more of them face juvenile detention based on the grand theft auto charge alone. In addition, they will have community service coming out their little eyeballs. I am sure they will spend their summers picking up trash and other stuff too.
Now comes the part that their parents face...possible lawsuit from the owner of the Subaru. The parents will at least have to pay for a new vehicle to that individual. The cost incurred to the town by at least CL&P for their services. Oh yeah, riding in an ambulance and lifestar are not free either.
Looking at the photos alone, it is amazing that their parents are not making funeral arrangements today.

We donít know whether one, two or all three of the kids were party to the theft of the vehicle, and they will all have their day in court. The driver will face a laundry list of charges that will likely include: driving a stolen vehicle, driving without a license, joyriding, speeding, reckless endangerment, and evading a police officer, not to mention the financial responsibility for property damage.

These kids are 14 years old - well below the established age of responsibility. They made poor choices that night; a night they will never forget. Thankfully no one was killed. Kudos to the other invited guests who declined to participate in the folly!

Those of you who are wishing them the worst should adjust your halo, which is resting a bit askew upon your horns!

Lawsuit on the horizon.
How dare the police pull them over and scare them like that! They were just undocumented drivers! The police caused them to crash!

Although they were hurt. The must be punished. I can tell they were white because no one had a racist comment. Well let me tell you, these little white bastards should be charged and fully prosecuted. I am sorry but a crime is a crime. I will pray for them to have a speedy recovery so they can go to juvie.

Simsbury is a very wealthy town. At worst these kids are wealthy white trash.

This has Bonfire of the Vanities written all over it. It just so unusual for white kids to behave so badly.

Why are people so quick to judge. Simsbury may be a wealthy town, but not everyone that lives in it are wealthy......Especially these kids....and me, and I've lived in this town all my life.

OK, I apologize. Maybe they are white trash after all.

What do you call wealthy? What's your net worth?

I am not implying that the passengers of the vehicle were unaware that the driver was underage and unlicensed, nor that they knew that the vehicle was not owned by the driver. My point is that if they conspired to or were accessory to the actual theft of the vehicle, this action would have further criminal implications.

What do you call wealthy? And...what's YOU"RE net worth. Apparently you know nothing about Simsbury, only what you read/hear in the news.

I happen to know all 3 kids and their families-I'm not quick to judge.
