    Neither driver has been cited? What was the the reasoning that went behind that?! “Boys will be boys”?

    I’m not trying to blame the boys, but couldn’t they see the traffic lights? I’m just wondering…

    My thoughts and prayers go out to their families as well.

    I feel so sorry for both of these families that lost their children in automobile -pedestrian accidents. They were both too young to pass on. My brother, who just turned 50 on January 3, 2010, is in the hospital, and in a nursing home as well. Now, we must make preparations for a hospice. With severe head injuries, broken bones, infections, he is full of pain, but has been in a vegetative state since coming out of a coma last month. We, his five siblings are taking this matter will hard. The driver, inexcusably, rushed to turn onto the road when the light turned green for my brother. She hit another car, and that car strucked and caused my brother to crashed from his bicycle into another car that was parked. He broke his whole pelvic area and injured three areas in his brain area. He had a broken left leg as well. The hospital nurses and doctors did everything for him, but with him not waking up, there is not more they can do now that his body is breaking down. He shouldn’t have to had gone through all of this, if that driver had paid attention to the road conditions. May our Lord look after these three people when they enter His gates in heaven. Rick, I love you so much. Your family, and sister, Audrey.
