    God bless the families of all involved. No 19 year old boy sets out to kill someone with his car. This will be a day he will never forget.
    Those women are acquaintances of mine and were doing the best they can to get through the sunset years graciously. For their families, this is a terrible tragedy.
    Accidents happen. Don’t be judgmental. Ugly comments are only hurtful to all three families. Count your blessings that something so terrible has never happened to you or your family. Reaching out in kindness would be a lot nicer that snide, opinionated remarks.

    “No criminality is suspected”, that means they were just parking their butts in the middle of the road. Expecting everybody to swerve around them and hit each other.

    I’ll tell you … today’s 18 year olds have no respect … they drive their fancy cars so fast … these 2 poor old ladiies … they didn’t want to get hit by a car! This kid should have his license revoked permanently. I like judging people without having all the facts.
