I was looking through the civil court dockets today and I saw that the father of one of the boys that was killed is suing the other driver that Jeremy Bolick was racing with. Not only is he suing Tyler Vance, he is suing his parents and the Fire Department that the kid volunteered for. Why is he not suing Jeremy Bolick's parents? I mean, he was the one driving the Mustang that ended up taking three lives, and nearly a fourth. And if the State claimed that Bolick and Wright were killed in the line of duty, wouldn't the state also find that Vance was in the line of duty? Therefore, the state should be the one getting sued.

This set a dangerous precedent. Now volunteer fire departments can be held liable for the actions of the volunteers traveling to and from calls and training.

These pucks were racing each other up the Mtn. I don't see how that is condsider killed in the line of duty. Since when is it the duty of the fire dept to race private cars up a twisting Mtn road? Lets not for get about the innocent man they kill in the other car or his wife that was severely injured as well. Did this woman's dead husbend get a ride home in the back of a fire truck at the tax payers expense like these punks did? I DON'T THINK SO

That's the way I see it. They were so quick to scream "HEROES" and didn't think how that would affect any civil suit from the real victims. A man lost his life, and a woman's life was turned upside down because some knucklehead kids thought it would be cool to race in the rain. It took them days to find the other kid who was racing because he took off. What kind of first responder is that? This is a perfect example of why these kids don't need red lights in their personal vehicles. More first responsders are killed going to and from calls than actually at the call.

Oh Bob, you sound like one of these fools who justified allowing these 2 knuckleheads getting full honors for their funeral. Question: If a cop went crazy at work, and shot his partner and somebody going about their daily business, would you still want him to be hailed as a hero? These kids basically committed negligent homicide. Not a hero in my book.

People are dead because of the negligence and arrogance of those boys. That's all there is to it.

Yes people did lose there lives for ONE persons negligence and recklessness. But they were not responding to a call. I am pretty sure OH BOB is asking for facts on deaths in our county from First Responders/Firemen that are responding to CALLS that has cost a life? Not everyone is bad Bob, not all Responders are in it for the thrill. Helping to save someones Life or Home is rewarding.

I'm not sure how one person can be involved in a race. And you're right. Not all are bad. But the bad one's ruin it for everyone. If you really care about the reputation of volunteer firefighters, tell them to he more respectful to other drivers.

The young man who was killed was racing another firefighter, who fled the scene. I have serious concerns with young kids like this holding any position with our local fire departments. Let them serve longer probationary periods, and get some experience and training under their belt before they are allowed to have red lights.

They were not responding to a call people. If you recall they were coming back from a class. I agree that they should have training and probation but that doesn't stop them from getting a light, anyone can get a light. Just because they were Firemen you want to use their decisions to give the others a reputation. I do care about the reputation of the others because they are good people and don't get the praise they should. And yes they should be respectful and mindful to other drivers, again not all are disrespectful.

Nobody said they were responding to a call. But they were acting in the capacity of a firefighter. That determination was made by either Blowing Rock FD or the state, I'm not sure which. But if these kids were acting so recklessly while not responding to a call, imagine how they would drive if they were responding to a call. It's terrible that so many lives were wasted on bad judgement, but hopefully it will make people realize it can happen at any time. Prayers for their families.

What I don't understand is why these punks got the hero treatment when they were breaking the law and killed an innocent person. Did the innocent person they killed get a flag covered ride with the fire dept? If I was the wife of the man they kill I would sue both fire depts as well as the kid that drove away.
