Sadly, speed related accidents are the #1 cause of deaths in this age group.

Condolences to his family. At age 20, he was certainly just beginning his life...

They just ran out of talent, I think of all the dumb ass things I've done in cars and wonder how I lived passed my 20s. God speed to him. My prayers go out to his family and friends.

i know them and there not stpid.... he is an awsome guy and so was his brother and cousin.....
I know those boys too, and no they were not stupid. Nathan passed away at the hospital. How ever he will live on because he was a organ donor. In his death he saved other lives by being a donor and to me that was very smart of him.

Please slow down people, a 35/45/or even 55 mph accident into a tree wouldve been minor injuries. These kids were travelling in excess of 75 mph. SLOW DOWN, its not worth it.

To the mother and family of Nate and Miguel, as well as Gabriel my daughter knew your boys and told me how great they were and how Big of Hearts they had. I want to let you and your family my prayers are with you and what i have been told your son is going to be missed by many that he touched by his personality and love all 3 shared with all. I am sorry for your pain.

It's a shame those who write negative remarks, In your life maybe not now but one day you might go threw something similer becareful in what you say, or write, and if not you will answear to someone stronger then you (GOD). What ever they did at the time of their last minuets, secounds, they are gone and their families are now griving, and worst of all life for them is different.
thats the facts

sadly this is usually the fate of these old muscle cars, perhaps the amount of power in vehs should be regulated by the age of the driver, prayers to the family ......
Grow up, regulate, regulate, regulate what. Kids being foolish. You want to regulate, then regulate yourself. unfortunate, but people just dont get it. Common sense is the best regulation we have, its a mind. Use it.
