I feel sorry for those of you who lost a son, brother, nephew, friend......

......but seriously, trying to smoke a bong while driving? How stupid do you have to be to try that?

Get a job or something, you have so much time on your hands that the only thing that is fun for you is to down others. What kind of person do you think you are, you probably have no friends, sit at home all day staring at playboy magazines, dreaming of how you wish you could have a somewhat pretty girlfriend. Oh, you were most likely picked on as a child and you are filled up with anger and this is the best you can do to get back at the people who were mean to you. Pothetic.

Get a life, a job, a girlfriend, something. You are a pothetic person, you have nothing better to do than sit at home, search the net, and wish you were somewhat of a good person, with friends, a family, a good job, maybe a girlfriend/boyfriend. This boy's family is white, not Indian, you are downing your own people. Pothetic.

A life that ends so tragically. He was a father and a son and a friend. Instead of downing him for pot why not think of the kids who will never know their father or his girlfriend who is now left to raise the kids alone. Just because there was a bong in the car does not mean that he was driving and smoking at the same time. This is a time to mourn not criticize. So those of you with nothing better to do than post neg comments when a life is lost need to find something better to do. The ones left here are the ones hurting and do not need to read neg comments. I am sure they are asking themselves why? this happened Terrance rest in peace.

Those roads are more dangerous than most of Humboldt County. People try to do things when they're driving and it doesn't work out there. I have tried, and it is bad.

There needs to be a public campaign to put up signs. Maybe the tribal police can throw down for that, and CalTrans needs to put up more signs of the curvy roads.

Actually, it is pathetic that we don't do a better job of educating ourselves. I am sorry, but clearly the guy wouldn't have had time to grab a piece and a lighter BEFORE crashing. Maybe he lived and then wanted to smoke to ease the pain of dying. Maybe if he had seen more warnings, like paint on the road or something, he would have lived.

"...found by emergency workers holding a lighter, and a water pipe, or bong, was found outside the vehicle."

Nice! Illegal drugs ever do anything good?

Then again, was it the emergency workers holding a lighter, and a water pipe?

That's journalism for ya!

I'm saddened for his family, but at least he didn't take out someone else in the process. That's some nasty addiction when you can't even wait to arrive at your destination to get high.

the article said it was a relatively straight section of road, you really think more signs are going to make locals drive any different? more paint, seriously? if anything, it would just further desensitize people by oversaturating the area with signs. Do we really need ever curve marked out with the "safe" speed?

I could have eaten a bowl of Alpha Bits and crapped out a more intelligent comment.

My condolences to his family and friends.

Friends we have lost a great friend to go smoke with the Angels. We will miss you Coyote Weed Toker. What has hurt our tribe the most was he was inhaling the ashes of the gods in our ceremonial peace pipe. Once again the white man has has forced us off of his road paved with blood to go dance with wolves in heaven. Rest assured though, our next casino will have a slot machine in his honer. "Toke or Tokens your choice."
