Blasts driver who ran red light



My heart goes out to the Keys family and friends who recently lost a wife, mother, teacher, friend, and now they have lost a son and brother.

I do not know these people. That doesn't matter. This tragedy touched me. The person who ran this red light, and caused this horrible accident that will change lives forever, was not a teen-ager. He was an adult who had been ticketed for other driving violations, such as driving too close.

I bring up the fact that he was not a teen-ager, because most of the people I see run red lights are adults. It's sickening that people are in such a hurry they can be careless drivers who kill others and change lives in the most painful ways.

I hope the person responsible for this senseless accident sits in jail for a long time and never drives again. I hope the Keys family finds healing in the days to come through prayers and the support of people who know them as well as those who don't.
