    Another young punk that hurts (kills) other innocent people.....
    Feel sorry for them...... not this moron!

    • I feel the exact same say, dumb punks who keep my car insurance sky high (i'm 23) and this dirtbag kills someones father, and nearly kills his own girlfriend. I hope the Rays have some recourse to get whatever bonus money he was given and are able to give it to the families of the two other victims instead, while this kid gets friendly with the Cal. penal system.

      Again.... the only tragedy was for the victims....not this criminal...
      As for his family....remember THEY raised him....they should be viewed as accesories to the crime...not felt sorry for!
      Financially...think about this...they sue Doctors for making a mistake while trying to save lives, but a nut like this can kill people and probably save his financial assets ( bonuses, salaries ect) outside of lawyer costs,
      which hopefully will bankrupt him!
