However, I am very glad that she came out of the incident with injuries that she will recover from. Hopefully she learned her lesson.

What's refreshing about this is the guardian's statement, "I told her next time, find some grass." That's beautiful! No blaming anyone! Most people today would find some way to blame the school or society or the president or something; anyone but the dork who laid in a parking spot!

I agree....there has been a dumbing down in education since the 70's....and appears YHS and Oklahoma are in the lead! At least we are #1 in something!

Kids today have NO common sense. Why would anyone lie down in a parking place to play with their cell phone? Very traumatic for the young driver and I'll bet the girl finds a new place to park her bones in the future.

If a JEEP ran over her chest and head, how in the WORLD is this girl not dead? Thank goodness she's OK.

Attention deprived? What the hell? Maybe she was on strike..? "NO ONE SHALL PARK HERE DURING MY WATCH." No, no, they certainly won't... but that won't stop them from running her over in effort. Damn.

Want to talk about idiots. This young girl is my neice. I know for a fact that she doesn't do drugs of any kind. Maybe your children did drugs to become idiots. But unless you know her personally or any of God's job.

Teens dont have full Cognitive development until they are about 21. She wanted to enjoy a beautiful day, laying down on the concrete.. not a well thought out plan but certainly not a "America is Doomed" scenario.

Anyone with teens know that at this age it is "All about me" and it is a painful lesson for this young lady, one I am sure she will carry with her for the rest of her life.(Im sure the friend that ran her over is traumatized as well!)
I hope she heals quickly!

For all of you who don't have all the facts or knowledge. This tragedy is a game these YHS students play in parking lots to see who can get the closest to the person laying down without hitting them.
Lois was pinned between two cars last wednesday (thankfully she wasn't hurt). This was know accident, it's just an ignorant game teens want to play. Charges should be filed on the young man. Maybe the YPD could do some more investigation on this matter.
But all teens have there ignorant moments. The public should be outraged that this kind of game goes on, instead of accusing her of being on drugs.

Why does everyone keep calling her a kid? She is 17 for God's sake. In this country you become and adult at 18! This younger generation are so far out of touch with reality that it hurts. Their minds are off in text land or in computer land all the time. And you know what? It is mostly the parents fault. They never take these things away from them and make them actually sit and use their brains. If my teens start hanging out on the phone or the computer to long, I simply take them away and give them a couple of days to use some imagination and stimulate the brain with something other than an electronic device. Our generation would be stupid also if all we did is sit around and look at a screen all day. It is really sad that we can't see what is happening right in front of our face!

Charges should be filed?? For what? If she was a willing participant in a "Game" then she's simply stupid.

By the way, this was NOT a tragedy!

Ok Ok my gosh people instead of all this griping how about we figure some things out for our kids, and she is a kid, like interesting things for them to do with there time, class rooms with less kids in each room so our kids have time to get the help they need. Activities that are fun but also teach. Our kids need us now more than ever, They are being taught how to act by TV and our Media!!! I know I made not the smartest of decisions in my youth, really can anyone say they didn't!?!

"Games" and young people are nothing new. Back in the 60's ( my age group ), it was "chicken", letting some air out of the tires and driving down the railroad tracks, hood surfing, or some other not so well thought out idea. I am glad this young lady is going to be okey. But as long as there are teenagers, there will be dumb games to get them hurt. So don't make more of this than it is. Kids will be kids, and that will never change.

This girl was either high or drunk or stupid.
How can a normal person do such a thing? I
don't buy this. If it was my child I would
take away her cell phone and anything else
I could. She needs a good old time spanking.
That is what is wrong with our kids today, is
not enough spankings.

To Vicki: In one statement, you lash out at someone who called this kid an idiot, and in the next you admit she volunteered to be run over. Do you need a spotlight and handwritten directions to see that this kid isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer?
And if what you say is true, kudos to her guardian who lied to the police and press. Because "she layed down on the concrete to text" was SUCH a believable story.*rolls eyes*
Kids are dumb and don't have a lot of common sense, but it takes a special kind to voluntarily let a "friend" try to back over them. I

Oh and finally what a great parent who lets their kids use their cell phone at school..... Maybe next week she can start driving while texting also.
Well... Both of my girls who are still in high school (one is a junior and the other a sophomore) take their cell phones to school everyday. They use them during lunch, or before and after classes begin. And they've both managed to keep a GPA over 3.7. Cell phones tend to come in handy if the student misses her ride home, for example. I believe equipping them with a means to contact me in an emergency makes me a responsible parent, not a bad one.

Also, nowhere in the story did it mention that the girl has a car or even has a license to drive one. If or when she does, I agree that texting while driving is THE most dangerous behavior practiced by drivers on our roads, and it needs to stop ASAP.
