You want the posters here to think about his family. Was he thinking about his family when he was driving recklessly? I don't think any of the posters here caused this crash. The driver did. One of his friends even stated in a previous post that he was a careless driver. People need to wise up on the roads. The roads are not a playground or raceway. And all of you cursing, wishing death on the other posters and posting threats are not any better than posters who have said they are glad this guy died.
Now did I say that you posters caused his death? NO. I want you stupid posters to show respect and NOT add your opinions. What is the point? He has passed. NOW, may he rest in PEACE?! GEES! MIND YOUR BUSINESS! GET IT?!

This is a public forum. If you don't like it, don't read it. The point is that maybe (highly unlikely) but MAYBE people will learn from this and stop speeding and driving carelessly.

Yes, you're right. It is a public forum. Of course I don't like what the posters are writing. I happen to read it because people happen to be bad mouthing my friend. I of course will defend him. Would you not do the same? So, hmm. God forbid if that happened to be your friend. Would you be able to take in all this heat from people that has no idea what went on and who, what kind of person he was? Would you be able to eat all this harsh, cold hearted peoples opinion? Answer that wise one.

NO. The point is these posters, including you shouldn't be judging this man. He has passed. Let it be, why add on? He was driving fast, okay but for sure he didn't deserve to be dead. That's my argument.

If you posters can't come to an understanding, I shall not go longer with this because it won't get through that thick head of yours.

I've seen accidents with far, far worse damage. Perhaps you just haven't seen what really horrific accidents can do to a vehicle. I've seen several accidents in which people have been killed...multiple people, not just one person. This car's damage is not comparable to those.

This person didn't hit anyone else....That was my point. Some people are saying it's such a tragedy and that we should be educating more people on the potential danger from speeding. I say, if they don't already realize it, they're just stupid and maybe we shouldn't feel this was such a tragedy...

OBVIOUSLY if they hit someone else who's innocent I wouldn't feel the same. Duh.

Anyone with half a brain knows the risks of speeding the way this guy did. Maybe you should be directing your anger at him instead of people discussing this situation.

The kind of person he was doesn't take away the fact that he was driving recklessly. There are speed limits for a reason and he chose to drive the way he did which resulted in his crash and his death. He's the one you should be angry at, not us.

wow this shows how ignorant some people can be. giving opinions and judgements on someone they dont even know. You guys should be ashamed of yourself for being so closed minded. Let him R.I.P and before anyone go speak their ignorant mind about the situation, please ask yourself are you in any place to say anything.

My Condolences goes to Shirley,JBui and the family Doung Tran.

yo i live on that street, in that corner, and i've never had an issue with it, at ANY speed...however, there have been many manny accidents and a couple fatalities in the same stretch of road, so i think it might be time for a guardrail. not to condone high speed driving, but we're not all bad at it

Yo! take it to the track before you kill someone,you maybe a good driver, but you cant control everything,and everyone else on the street, and by the way more often than not when people that think they are good drivers that can really handle a car,or bike go to the track they end up eating a huge piece of humble pie...give it a try.

Your attitude is exactly what's wrong on the roads around here. If you want to speed, go to a track. Don't put innocent lives in danger because you think you can do whatever you want on the road.

It also shows how ignorant and closed minded the friends and family can be when their loved one loses his life in a car crash that he caused. They take out their anger on everyone but the person who really is to blame...

I am definitely in a place to say something because I see these people driving recklessly here on a regular basis. Then as soon as one of them crashes and gets killed or seriously injured, all these people come onto these forums saying what a great person their loved one was and that is wasn't his fault. People need to be responsible on the roads and not use them as a race track or playground. People, when you're driving, hang up the phones, obey speed limits, don't drive aggressively and we will have fewer car crashes!

You people are as rude as they come, you have no idea what happened in that accident and for you to post comments as to "glad he is dead" or so on is hateful, what kind of person are you. A man died do not disrepect him like that, I feel for his family and friends, it is a dangerous road and this is not the first fatality here. Please keep your rude comments to yourself and grow up.

I feel sorry for his family more then anything else. Doung was probably a realy good guy. As much as i would like to have sympathy for the kid, i do not. because he could very well have killed someone else. yea he didnt, however, lets not forget an innocent young man by the name of Adam Moser that was killed by another speeder down that very same road years ago. kinda ironic since Adam was also the little brother of my Brother's (the guy Thomas that was interviewed) ex girlfriend. Adams cross is on the other side of the street where Doungs memorial lays. With that being said.. May both of their souls Rest In Peace!
