She and the four young men with her in a car were killed Thursday when the driver — a 19-year-old with a suspended license — sped around a lowered railroad crossing gate and past the flashing warning lights in an attempt to beat a train. The car was broadsided.

Seriously, it should've been him who just died.

And people wonder why insurance is higher for teenage boys than girls.

But Barry M. Sweedler, a former senior director of the National Transportation Safety Board, said younger drivers are more likely to do foolish things when other young people are in the car.
"The evidence is very clear: The more young passengers, the higher the risk," Sweedler said.

Just natural selection in progress there.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

Why?

I'm pretty sure the others will have known he had a suspended license and they will have known his personality.. etc (that he could do something like that/show off/whatever)


It was their choice to get in the car with him

Let's hope they supported Arsenal.

I wish he wasn't killed.

Instead I wish he was the only survivor, and spent the rest of his life as a gibbering mess in some god-awful prison, where he survives numerous suicide attempts, eventually dying old and alone.

It was their choice yeah but in a car, one person has control of the speed, the direction, everything. They couldnt slam on the brakes and stop the car. They took a big risk getting into the car with someone who had a suspended license. He took an even bigger risk by trying to beat a mother****ing train on its home turf. Know your enemy!
DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING

How do you know about Benfica?!

Anyway, I had heard this on the news, but I think it wasn't mencioned that the driver tried to race the train and didn't have license. Stupid journalism.

This is true.

Either way its really upsetting, I can't imagine being the mother of any of those kids. It would be so heart breaking.

Yeah, I'm not defending the driver. I'm just saying, saying something like 'only he deserved to die' is a bit harsh.

For all we know (this happens) the others couldve been encouraging it

i wouldn't call it natural selection on the part of the passengers in the car. it just sucks for them. its the 19-year-old's fault.

while its taking the piss, just watching this should scare anyone from ever trying to cross infront of a train

and that's without the added momentum of numerous tons of carriages, just the locomotive.

You should feel sorry for the train driver rather than the train. People always forget about train drivers whenever someone gets fucked up by a train.

it's tragic, but why would anyone ever be so stupid.
fair enough doing it by yourself, but taking other people with you is a disgrace
