Dear writers.

Attempt to get some reality in your reporting:

A wheel is a lot different than a tire.

Was it a wheel or a tire? There seems to be bit confusing.

Also, what was this driver thinking? Was this person impaired? It's good nobody else was killed. The streets aren't safe anymore.

hmm, how come the writer didnt blame it on the cops?
the accident may have happened before the pursuit but they rarely miss a chance to put the blame somewhere else.

Culling the herd I say. Screw his family, they obviously raised a total loser who got what he deserved. 90mph, good thing he didn't take anyone with him. Just another speeding cancer in the valley. Good riddens.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss (as well as his family's). It is tragic that this driver didn't think of the consequences before he put the pedal to the metal. His loved ones must be feeling a tremendous amount of pain.

Sorry for your personal pain at the loss of your friend.
Having said that, what are the "facts"? Your friend is a news story now, and if you don't want "idiots" making uninformed assumptions, tell us: Did this individual have a habit of speeding or reckless driving? The way the article was written, it did give the impression that your friend put himself and everybody else at risk, by driving in a manner that could be described as reckless.(90 down Victory? Reckless is an understatement.) What do you think the toxicology report will say? Any alcohol or drugs? Don't be offended, these are legit questions to be asked about anyone going 90 in a 35 and they're going to be asked a lot.

What ARE the facts family friend? That he WASNT going 90 mi per hour down Victory blvd? All the posters here are just grateful your friend didnt kill anyone else. Going 90 down that street 'tends to kill innocent people'... We are happy it was JUST him, not anyone else. It doesnt mean people are happy he or she died.

you shouldnt be bugging the "family friend" he feels guilty enough that he did nothing to prevent this. This is the same guilt you might feel after he goes out and gets drunk tonight and does the same thing.

Idiot; suv's are not sports cars hondas and toyotas are not race cars BMW Lexus Infiniti are but even then without experience they are useless. streets have one problem with speeding, other people, you can not control others actions so reckless speeds on the streets and freeways are a dangerous deal, worse yet are people who think they can speed in a little crappy car.

He shouldn't have posted if he didn't want the back-talk. And who are you to say how FF feels? Are you a Dr or a mind-reader?
And what do you think? Any wagers on the toxicology results?

Although he made a mistake, I think it's a little harsh to say your glad he's dead. I too knew him and he was just a young kid. So sad for the family. I thank those for their kind words torward the family.

This information is wrong with several points:
- It was a white BMW car not a silver truck/SUV
-It was not a house it was an apartment complex (Oakwood Apartments)
-The car was not wrapped around the tree, it hit the apartment complex's outside wall putting a hole on the side of the wall.

I was a witness to the fire and the scene of the car.
Other than that information, I have not heard anything else.

Be careful with your words. You know nothing about this teen or his family, so don't pass judgement onto them. It's funny how people can be so cruel on the internet, when they aren't face to face with a greaving family. I'm not saying that what he did was right, but have a little compassion.

That was my friend all of you are talking about. He name was Matt Corbiere, and he was a great person. I wish all of you could have died in his place, cause i know, he wouldnt be talking about someone he didnt know. He was a better person than that. I love the way half of you idiots are running your mouths, when you never even knew the kid. I guess he was going through some mental issues. If you dont care, why you leaving comments? Have some respect, and just leave.

Hey tom from colorado springs, come to la homo, say that to me and his family, ill be waiting.

Matt was a little misguided at times but he was deffinately a good person. Unlike you ignorant assholes that say he deserved to die. you don't know matt you don't know what happened. He was just scared and reacting to something that shouldnt have happened in the first place. He was just a fun loving kid and he shouldve been with us tonight, his friends who love him and care for him.

Your so lame. Hopefully you'll die soon, so there will be one less shit talking moron of the streets. Its funny how a "tagger" has more respect than a "tagger killer" for a 17 year old kid with problems that passed away.
