    I work with the people that were in the car and I am very saddened by this situation and Josh jokes are very irrelevant at this moment in time because its a situation where death was involved.

  2. korri says:

    The driver of the car speaks English very well. I know him personally and he is in critical condition. I hope things turn for the better.

  3. CASINO says:

    Josh the question should be can you spell in English ? It’s a tragic event that should not be taken lightly or made fun of.

  4. thomasm says:

    I’m not sure what language has to do with driving ability. This is a tragedy for the families involved. No matter who was at fault that should be kept in mind.

  5. Chozen One says:

    The car made an illegal broken u turn when the bus hit him. It was a tragic accident. It has nothing to do with a persons lang. In these times i cant understand how ppl like josh find jokes to say in situations like this.

    I would be willing to bet that the car was speeding. There are no traffic lights for the entire length of Pan Am Road, which is about a mile long.
