its a shame....i can't believe the driver of the car...we all need to be more aware. Apparently someone wasn't paying attention! Especially a teen driver! It could have been anyone if you weren't paying attention..but a lessen learned, start paying attention..Especially in the summer!!! Prayers go out to this family, he was to young to pass. God bless

well I hope this teaches this person a lesson now that they have to live with this the rest of their life. Killing someone is not something I want on my mind for the rest of my life!

It sounds like the driver of the car caught a sneezing fit which took his attention away from the road. This is just a reminder that we need to give more space for cars and especially bikes.

People are on here judging away, but you don't know what happened. I feel bad for the guy who lost his life. It is a shame, and I'm sorry for the family. But, you never know what caused this kid to rear end him. Something may have happened inside the car...such as the sneezing fit mentioned above. All I'm saying is, don't make assumptions and tear the driver apart when you don't know exactly what happened.

Also, It's not JUST up to the drivers of the cars. In this incident, I'm pretty sure the biker was driving carefully, but sometimes those motorcycles fly and weave through traffic and ride dangerously. It's a 2 way street people, and caution needs to be taken on both sides. This situation was just unfortunate.

why are most of you judging this Kid, none of u have a clue what happened or anything, it could happen to ANYONE, the report and paper classified it as an accident, im sure the kid feels bad and is going through alot also. if he ever read this most of you sound like assholes most not all, especially u Lovin my soldier, ur soldier is a trained killing machine think about that, i hope u learn to respect people before making assumptions about them

im sure andy feels horrible about what happened. you cant always believe what you read especially when their dad is a town cop. they need to stop covering for him and let be what punishment may come. nothing ever happened to the keys girl for her part in whitneys accident either.

i didnt know levi and emily was already married. so sad to lose your husband when youve just started. i hope his love sees you through and your friends and family can give you the strength to keep going

Had that been a car instead of a motorcycle he still would have rear ended it. Had it been a car their could have been more injured or killed. It was accident and this boy is going to remember the rest of his life.Their is also one more point to bring up, had Levi been wearing a helment could the out come been different.

I *heard* the boy was texting...now whether or not that was true I don't know. I also heard it was Rogers little brother but I see on here it is his son.(I didn't really figure it to be a brother, but who knows nowadays) So...how do you know what was true? I guess it will all come out in the wash. It is a terribly sad situation all around, however.
