Parents pulled the plug on 17 year old son 1 hour ago.The Doc's are working on him now for the Organ Donor Program. :^(

The 16 year old girl has slipped into a deep coma and it does not look good for her in any way as well. :^(

This tough. Mid Daughters SIL lost all 4kids in 2accidents. 3girls the first to speed and blind passing into uncoming semifirst time out unsupervised. their only boy 1-1/2yr later doing about the same thing dealing with speed.
I can't say I really wanted to rush life. I might have been luckier than most, making a few mistakes on the farm.
Our prayers go out to your's involved.

Sad to hear that but it will happen again - if they could just remember one thing it might help. "If you're moving faster then you can run full-tilt, a sudden stop can kill you." Period. Simple as that.

We gotta drag those headstrong kids back to basics. Like most animals, our bodies were only designed for running, NOT crashing in a motorized coffin. Ego kills and death's forever - we can do a million things those kids can't today. And probly never will.

The instant somebody dumber starts thinking for you, you get out and walk -who needs them? This speed and bulletproof and cocky business will keep weeding them out til the survivors learn. If you can live & learn, you can learn & live.

I have lotsa friends whose advice i'll take
any day, but there's no way on god's green earth i'd ride with them. Wanna tour the graveyard and meet some? Call me picky and proudly so!

I have been following along with your posts and keeping the families in prayer. That would be one tough row to hoe, pulling the plug on a kid, wow. I cannot think of comforting words but I will keep praying.

Sorry to hear the news.
Colorado is considering changing the minimum driving age to 18 to try to reduce this type of thing. I donít know if it will help or not.

Prayers to their family and friends.

Very, very sad.

Roads and highways are better and faster today. Cars a faster, too, but not as sturdy as they were when I was growing up. Kids are growing up faster, too, with less real life expereince. It is a lethal combination unfortunately.
It is always so sad when young folks lives end like that. It is a shame experience cant be taught. It takes time to learn it.
