Death is always tragic. Whether you're young and beautiful or old and haggard. Someone's heart breaks for you. It's disheartening to see the multitude of disgusting/rude/disrespectful/(choose similar adjective) comments on these posts. It doesn't matter what kind of car the girl was driving, or that the girl was driving (not the guy). And who really cares what her MySpace handle was? Sounds to me like she had a sense of humor.

My heart and prayers are with the families of all of the victims. I hope that Jon recovers swiftly, and that someone leads him towards the help that he will need not to *suffer* from being the survivor. AND, my prayers are also with the family of the DD. I can't imagine how horrible this must be for them either.

**Oh, and the reason that it seems that drunks always survive is because they are *loose* at impact. The natural tendency to tense up causes greater damage to the body. Someone had asked that somewhere...

The douchebag driving the van should be sentenced to EXCESSIVE BODILY harm. I am so sick and tired of the drunk idiots on the road killing innoccent people. It's heartbreaking and unnecessary. Van guy should have his feet run over, then his hands, then the rest of his legs, them his arms, and let him lie there and THINK about his actions and the concequences. Families have been torn apart, friends heartbroken, lives ruined. I have lost friends to drunk driving and it's hard to move on from it.

Why is it that the drunk driver always walks away unscathed? And these families have to live with the loss of a loved because some guy killed them. This wasn't his first offense and he knew the possible consequences of driving drunk...said so himself. This guy doesn't deserve to see the light of day ever again! I live in Texas and recently a man rear-ended a car full of teenagers. They were stopped at a light and he rear-ended them at about 65 mph, never hitting the brakes. One of the teens died at the scene, another had to have part of her leg amputated but she died a week and a half later. Two other teens are still in area hospitals recovering. They have been in there for about a month now. This moron is currently only being charged with vehicular manslaugher...which is equivalent to a slap on the wrist! This also was not his first offense!

Bottom Line:
IF YOU DRIVE DRUNK, YOU LOSE YOUR LICENSE FOR LIFE!!! NO EXCEPTIONS!!!

WOW! The truth do you really have no life but to go on a posting of girl who died tradgeically in an accident by the fault of another driver and say that if she wasn't a "groupie" that she would still be alive today? You are almost as bad as the driver who killed them. Who she hung out with or what she did had nothing to do with that bastard getting behind the wheel drunk again.

Courtney was one of my best friends. I can't even begin to say how terribly we miss her. Her family is beside themselves. Let this be a lesson to everyone to never drink and drive. RIP court

My prayers for the families of all of these talented young people who lost their lives. Such a tragedy. It really makes me so very sad. I have children that age...and cannot imagine the loss. It is a fear you live every day watching your children grow no matter the age. We can watch them, we just can't control or watch the other "people" who are so inconsiderate and non-caring in their actions and that is the scary part when your children begin to make a place for themselves in this crazy world of ours.

Also in response to the "kind" of car someone should be using..
I am 48 and drive the very same car, so age is not the issue! It's the car I choose to drive. I personally don't care for BMW's or desire a Benz. Even if I could afford one. To say we can't / shouldn't drive the car we want to drive (because someone thinks its FLIMSY) ! It is not our fault because some drunk idiot
gets behind the wheel where he should not be is absurd to say the very least.
I don't know what the answer is to keeping them off the road, probably there isn't one... Its the risk we all take no matter what we drive.
People get killed driving a Benz or a Beetle...Sadly it happens.
