This is to "The Other Driver" after reading your heartless comment to a heartbreaking news story for many I felt I needed to respond. I sincerely hope that one day after your grieving and pain has subsided you may find it in your heart to forgive Evan. I understand you are very deeply hurt because of the untimely loss of someone near and dear to you but please realize all of Evan's family and friends are also going through the same grieving process as we have just today lost a great and wonderful person. You obviously know nothing else about Evan other than this unfortunate tragedy. You need to know that Evan was a GREAT person who would NEVER do anything to hurt anyone intentionally. He would always go out of his way to help not only friends of his but also people he has just met in passing. It is unfair to judge him based on only this. My thoughts and prayers go out to both families whom have lost a loved one in this tragedy.

Although driving while intoxicated is completely against what I believe to be right, I've met Evan before and now I completely see the different side of things. He meant nothing of what he did that night and the fact that someone could be so bitter as to doom them to hell, is the heartless act in this situation. I'm a decent amount of years younger than "The Other Driver" and I can tell what is right from wrong, and what you said, is completely wrong. Yes, Evan may have taken a life, but the guilt he would have lived with, if he had been fortunate enough to make it, would have been a worse punishment than sitting in prison. Just because he did a bad thing, doesn't mean he was a bad person. Don't you realize that he had a family, friends, maybe a girlfriend? Everyone has lost someone who meant something to them. "The Other Driver" needs to realize that he/she is not the only one grieving the lost of a loved one. Praying for everyone involved.

I see no mention of the fact that on that night it was
dangerously foggy. I was out on rt 47 and found it quite hard to see what lane I was in at times. However if drugs or alcohol were involved, thats a different story.

To the people on here that cant seem to have a bit of respect for anyone, let me just say that as a friend of evans i can tell you the pain we as friends and family are feeling. We are not the ones that made the mistakes, and now are dealing with the loss of a amazing friend. So before you go spouting hurtful horrible things, remember we are hurting significantly over the loss of our friend and the least you could do is save your opinions and not voice them in the manner you are. My prayers go out to the other family involved, and i can tell you first hand all of us hurt for them as well, no one in this situation is having anything but hurt right now. Mistakes are made and justices are given, so please give it up other driver, he is gone and please respect our emotions at this point and let us deal with our loss without the horrible remarks. Evan i love you honey, i miss you and i will never ever be the same without you! RIP BUDDY!

We are all sorry for everyone involved!!! And it takes one second to make a silly mistake...Evan WAS a great kid...who wouldnt hurt a fly! I am disgusted that you still feel the way you do...RIP Evan AND Anita...The world lost 2 amazing people and and God gained 2 beautiful angels!!

Evan did not intentionally MURDER anyone. You cannot call it murder because he did not get on the road and try to kill anyone. If alcohol was involved, then the depressant attributes of alcohol would have made it difficult for him to comprehend his intoxicated state. People who drive drunk think that they have the capacity to drive and they themselves do not realize how drunk they are. So it was a horrible ACCIDENT and my thoughts and prayers go out to both the families and friends surrounded by this case. As a friend of Evans I know he would have let someone else drive it he realized he was intoxicated, but he probably didn't know and my greatest sympathizes go out to all who are grieving right now.

As a relative of Evan's, I can tell you he was a wonderful person who would never intentionally hurt anyone. There are many circumstances that night that have not been revealed, and many more fingers to point at if that's what you're looking to do. These details will come out. To say hurtful things will not change a horrible situation. Both families have suffered severe losses and should be able to grieve without reading these horrible things. Witnesses on the scene contradict the details that the "other driver" states. No 100 miles an hour. That's a huge exaggeration. Like I said, this is not the end of the story. Evan helped many people in life and in death. Evan lives on.

We will miss you Evan especially Nicole. My heart goes out to the Florians as well as Anita's family. Don't be hateful you never know when your time is up. R.I.P. Evan and Anita you are with the angels now and there's no better place.

The "Other Driver"...you weren't even there. Why don't you clarify that for everyone please. I was and the real other driver would never speak as you do. As for Mr. Truck driver...I was there and I still know that both Evan and Anita went to a better place that night... Evan just returned to make other's lives a little better...and there is only one person to thank for that and the fact that 3 people survived the horrible crash that night. Bless their families and all the people out helping that night.

I knew Evan from his p;ace of work. He was always respectful and very helpful. He was kind enough to stay open for me a few times, as I was unable to get to the store before it closed. He had a smile on his face no matter how many times he was interupted. He remembered names of customers that walked into the store. I pray that all of the people involved will be guided by strengh and courage through this very difficult time. Now we should pray that both Evan and Anita watch over all of us and keep us out of harm's way.

Thank you to all of you who helped out that night, visited in the hospital, prayed for both families and offered your support. Thank you also to those of you who wrote kind words because one incident does not define a person. Evan and Anita met in heaven and worked it all out. God will continue to keep them close at hand and may He watch over all of us and help us to heal.
