Recently two local young people, driving their parents new E series wagon were killed when the driver lost control of the car and hit a wall. The wagon was estimated to have been doing over 100mph at the time of impact.
No car is bullet proof. Most young people feel that they are immortal. To their family's sorrow, many find out that death can't be cheated.
I continually talk to my teens about the dangers of driving in general and speeding in particular. I pray to God that my "nagging" doesn't fall on deaf ears.
David, my sympathies go to you and to your friend's family. I had two friends die when I was young. One overdosed on drugs and the other committed suicide. Both times it really hurt.
