So terribly sad. I wonder if age had anything to do with it? I know that when young guys get together in cars and in a holiday mood, they tend to let their guard down as to safety – there is an air of invincibility about them. My 30 something son, who did all sorts of dangerous things with cars at that age agrees with me. It’s a question of maturity with dreadfully tragic consequences. But of course, I am only speculating. I know none of the facts. Still, a tragedy that will have much collateral damage I would imagine. My thoughts go out to the parents involved on both sides.
