JUST RECKLESS DRIVING?
(that just gets you a DMV suspension)
SOUNDS LIKE NEGLEGENT HOMOCIDE OR AT LEAST INVOLUNTARY MANSLAUGHTER..
SOMEONE DID DIE HERE!

Just because you are pissed off here doesn't give you the right to make comments like that. Don't you think that the driver is going through enough MENTALLY. This is something that she will have to deal with the rest of her life.

How terribly sad for everyone involved! One life taken, another young life facing time in jail for reckless driving!!!! Parents -- come on, wake up! Keep a watchful eye on what your children are doing in their cars and who they are driving around.

Did the parents of this young driver know who their daughter was driving around? Isn't it Maryland Law that unless passengers are family, no other young people should be in the vehicle? Did the parents know who their daughter was driving around?

klocco, she is not facing jail time just charges.

NYWILL, she is mentally suffering that was her best friend and the parents of the dead passenger do know that.

Jennifer, just ignore these people because they don't know what they are talking about.

Thi is not the first incident of this type where someone died in a car...Just a week or so a boy died in Potomac....he was 16 driving at 2:30am..guess he is mentally suffering also...he or they should be suffering..a human life is lost...The fact they are out at 2:30am at that age and even if the parents were not aware they should have been...punish this girl to the fullest extent...it is the only way teens get the message..not by coddling....

This is a tough situation and knowing the parents of the victim I am aware that they are mentally suffering and will for the rest of their lives. Let us all remeber 1 thing the victim is never going to come back and her parents will never see her again
The driver is ALIVE and is suffering but the key word is Alive.
Try being the family of the victim. Show some compassion for their loss and there feelings.

The driver did not force the girl into the car and it was the victims parents whom allowed her to ride with a friend instead of riding the bus tto school.
