    You pay more attention to grammatical errors, than the injuries and even the death of fellow human beings? God bless those affected by this tragedy.

  • Some people just have no life Sue. I do feel bad for the family who lost a son/brother/cousin or even a father.

  • Faith says:

    In NY and NJ it is against the law to ride in the back of a pick up truck…it is legal down here?

    • K says:

      In some very rural counties it is, but where this took place it is not legal. We do see it done all the time though. It is likely these young men just didn’t realize the danger in it. So sad.

  • Whittney says:

    God bless the families as well as the men who are in the hospital.

  • Tiffany says:

    You know what all you people should have to say is you pray for the family of those loss or injured. I am sure the person driving the truck didnt set out to hurt his friends…It just says we need to remember that cars are not toys and instill it into young drivers that someone’ is always at stake.playing behind the wheel ends bad….

  • M. Profit says:

    The young men all are seniors at Northwest High School and have been close, close friends for years. My heart is breaking over this.

    • Jake Stafford says:

      I knew him personally. I go to school with Eric. The man who died. I have known him for 2 years.. We went to weaver academy with me in the mornings and sometimes went out to lunch when we had the chance. Everyone in the truck at the time were close friends to me. I hope my friends turn out alright. R.I.P. ERIC. WE WILL LOVE AND MISS YOU

  • Mr. K says:

    I live by, and heard the sirens, i had no idea this tragic accident happened. God bless.

  • Ms. K says:

    This is yet another very sad story. When are we going to learn? Never. Because it has become ‘wrong’ to discipline children as they grow. Then, suddenly they have a drivers license, can vote, etc. …and they no foundation on which to make a good decision. All they know is “run wild, run free… whatever I want is okay”.

  • Kaitlyn says:
