These lives can not be brought back, we all wish it never happened. It is a horrible accident. I would only pray that people talk to their children about how fragile life really is, then there can be something positive come from all these lives lost.

USBlues who do you think they are going to sue? All lives were lost and the young lady was over 18 and I'm sure at 19 there would be nitjing to take. The vehicle was stolen so the owner is not responsible either unless of coarse permission was given and i'm sure that didnt happen

You guys are being hard on WP, but she could be correct. My parents did actually know where I was all the time. They didn't know that I occasionally drank at one of my friend's house, but they did always know where I was and who I was with.

I dont think any of those families are reading any comments right now because no doubt they are simply numb and in disbelief howeve the days ahead they just may need the comfort of knowing others that they dont even know thought of them. They simply dont need the nasty comments

The last thing I would do is read the comments on the Tribune's website if my family was involved in something like this.

No child EVER deserves to die. My heart is still breaking for everyone involved. Prayers to those families and friends.

Breezie i agree with you 100% what hurt me enough to write this editorial is people were saying these kids deserved this. No matter how good the parents are teenagers do stupid things. I know as a teenager i was not perfect

This was an eye opener for me to talk to my children. My son is 14 years old, and I don't allow him to go anywhere with other children or their parents. I know, kinda strict, but I just worry that something bad will happen (because we aren't perfect) and because I want to know where he is at all times. I will let up a little in the next year, but I also talked to him about telling me the truth no matter what. Will he? Not sure really, I just hope that I raised my children to be honest at all costs and make good decisions. This also scared my son and now he doesn't want to even get in the car with his friends when he starts driving. I told him you can't control what other drivers do, you can only control what YOU do. The point is this; this accident was horrible. It made my children and I cry. We don't care who was at fault, because lives have been lost and forever changed because of that day. Families will never hold their child again. As parents we can only do the best we can.

WarrenProud, wow, your kids played you big time. I can't begin to tell you how many times my parents "knew" where I was and "who" I was with. And I wasn't anywhere near there or anywhere near who they thought I was with. I'm 34 now, but I remember when I was 15-18 years old and dumb stuff I did. It wasn't my parents fault, it was mine.

I have respect for these parents and no matter what I will stand behind/besude them. All kids make mistakes, including yours Warrenproud and you just might never know about them. These kids mistake cost them their lives thats the difference we teach our kids in hopes they will decide to do things the way we taught them but there are times they dont think ahead and no doubt they didnt. Im sure many who commented can remember doing crazy things too and Warrenproud, unless you lived in a bubble you did too. Please stop and think about the whole picture and putting yourself in the place of those parents. You never know when it could be you.

WarrenProud, You just thought you knew where your kids were all the time. Come on now, your not that naive.

Now, these articles is like pouring gas on a fire. Everyone will be back with their almighty 2 cents instead of leaving it alone.
