  1. Truly my heart goes out to the teen that hit the pedestrian. So awful. I don’t know if it was a suicide or drug or mental health issue with the person who died, my condolences go out to the family and loved ones. I do know I will be praying for that teen. I can’t imagine how I would have handled such a difficult situation at 16. Such a sad situation.

    • My son was the one involved in this incident, he was not the first person to hit the pedestrian. He was actually hit by a semi truck first.

    • Keeping perspective says

      Let us all remember the victim has a family as well and keep them in our prayers – this was someone’s son, brother, nephew, uncle, husband or boyfriend, possibly he had children…

      • Missingyouforever says

        Yes he does have a family and we are devastated completely. He was a special person that was loved by many and is very sorely missed by all he touched in his life. It still doesn’t seem real…

        • Can’t believe it’s real either… says

          He was as big and tall as his heart. Heartbreaking… can’t shake it.

        • Iknowhowyoufeel says

          God it doesn’t feel real. I’ve been crying since I found out. I just can’t believe he isn’t here anymore… my heart is forever broken.
