This person [who had a name - Tom] died last week from the injuries he sustained in this tragic accident. I had been out of touch for a while with him so the shock of reading his obituary today has left me sad and numb. I had not even heard about the accident until I read the obituary. I googled the news story and all of the blogged information about the accident and I, too, am relieved and thank God that no one else was hurt or killed that day - a major holiday. At the same time, I am saddened by the on-line cruelty of posts -- not just related to this accident but just in general. Please know that I make no excuses or judgment here, and hope that I am not being biased because I knew Tom. Believe me when I say that if he had brought harm to other innocent people, I would have been angry - beyond measure. Yet, I must admit that I find it challenging to grasp that human beings can feel and articulate such unkind remarks/jokes. I really do want to believe that we live in a kind, gentle society but as I grow older each year, I am finding it increasingly difficult to hold on to that belief.

The now deceased would not have become the subject of ridicule, nor his family subjected to a textual bracing from the community, had he been conducting himself within societal norms and the law.

Our society is falling apart because new age thinking makes everyone think they are unique and special and therefore, rules don't apply to them.
Guess what? Rules apply to everyone, and everyone can't win first place. Most people aren't special.

It is incumbent upon each and every one of us to point out and call to task anyone we see acting in a manner contrary to the law of the land or that endangers others. Since the legal system has no teeth, the only thing left is to banish those that eshew the rules and community to the outside.

I am appalled by the things people have posted on here. Yes, speed and alcohol were factors in this accident and yes, he is lucky he did not kill anyone else, but for anyone who cares, Tom died 2 weeks after the accident. I don't condone the mistakes he made, and he made many, but he has paid with his life and his family is suffering. Shame on you for being so heartless. I am so glad no one else was injured and I wish he had made better choices, but a life has ended and a family has lost a valued member. Please at least feel for what they are going through.

He made a very serious mistake in judgement and put a lot of people in harm's way, along with himself. I am very grateful that no one else was hurt. This very easily could have been a multiple victim accident and I can't tell you how relieved we all are that no one else was injured or killed. For that I have a great deal of gratitude.
Whatever contributors that played a role, speed, texting, alcohol, carelessness, etc., those facts will be made clear as you have a great police force looking after your community and you ought to be grateful for their hard work. My cousin is going to pay dearly for this accident in a lot of ways. I have compassion for him and will support him without limitations to make his amends and to realize the best future quality of life possible.
Your thoughts and prayers are well needed and sincerely appreciated.
I am so sorry for the loss of your cousin. i met him when he first moved to Charlottesville, and he was a very kind person. My thoughts to your family.
