To the Mother who say the car should never been allowed on the streets.I'm so sorry for your loss..It is sad when these things go wrong
that usually only bring pleasure..Not sure the power of the car was at fault here nor the young man driving it..At times things happen that are out of anyone's control..So putting
blame doesn't FIX anything...I just pray you are given peace and comfort thru all of this..

If I had to do stunts or tricks in a car with people all around me, I think I might hurt people too! The problem is that sometimes the choices we make can be hard lessons. One thing that I have learned from the mistakes made be these events is.... I will not stand on the sidelines of a street while a high performance vehicle spins out of control.
