Terrible summer for teen accidents

This summer has been an especially tragic one as far as young people dying in car accidents, or other accidents. I don't know the circumstances of this accident, but whatever the case, teens need to slow down and pay attention to their surroundings; and put down that phone!

Respect

Out of respect to the person and family it was merely a request to give a correct name if the article is being written. No need for hostility. It is a sad time for young people and my daughter and a lot of her friends went to school with him.

Amen GaPeach

Way too many and they will keep occuring. As long as we have inexperienced drivers, cell phones, friends riding, etc. on the roads, these tragic events will happen.

I agree with TRULYWORRIED someone lost a loved one and if we know that family our hearts should be turned to them during this time. We have got to learn to honor God's word when it comes to these type of situations to Mourn with those that Mourn and this is that time. Pray for the family too.

I might've missed the first post, if it was removed. And I do not understand how the current first post has a later timestamp than the second post. But either way, Pommom38, I think your post(s) were out of line.

Pommom38....First....your posts are FAR from classy. Second, there will ALWAYS be inexperienced drivers on the road. No one is born with driving experience.
