    People do not know that this wasn't the first time the driver has had "AN ACCIDENT" OR his first warning about speeding.

    The funny thing here is that most people are talking about speeding and kids being out after a certain time as well as where are the parents. Please read the story again. It does not say anything about speeding; as a matter of fact, it says the cause of the crash remains under investigation. One thing I have noticed from the comments, the people defending the kids (parents and friends) actually know how to put together a sentence that is not only understandable but has all the words spelled correctly. That spells "educated" to me and I'm guessing they are not your typical redneck that we see on the news everyday. Does this matter? Heck yes because it's always the uneducated, uninformed people making stupid comments (Heather) and making us all look bad.

    Leave the parents alone and heather focus on your life. These families have been through a lot and they don't need your opinion about their parenting. I'm a teenager and you know I stay out later than that so to me that is early to be out. They were going home after hanging out, this could happen to anyone. All the parents still have their kids that were involved in the accident which is a good thing. God is good and no matter who you want to blame, all the kids are alive and leave the parents alone. I have a question "What time would your kids have curfew in the summertime if you had kids?" Second there isn't a curfew set for Jessamine County so get off these families back they have been through enough. If you weren't driving around at 11:30 or midnight you must not have a social life or must have lied to your parents. At least the one kid did call and tell them where they were. That's what matters to a parent. I just want to say I'm praying for the families involved....

    Heather, you must not have children to be so judgmental. The driver and his family are personal friends. They are wonderful parents & truly responsible,remarkable people. A seasoned driver with a perfect driving record could have had the same accident. This is a time to come together and not place blame. This is why they call it an "accident". Nothing was done purposely..YOU could have had the same accident. Let us pray for the children and their families for physical and emotional healing. I will pray for you that you grow up.

    Blaming the parents is just not fair. How many of us can truly say that while growing up we didn't do things our parents did not know about. Would it have been fair to blame them. Try and remember what you felt like at that age and the things you did before judging others. Parents can be over protective and still not know what their child is doing at all times. If you truly wanted to do something as a teenager did you not try to find ways to go and do with out letting your parents know, sure you did, we all did. We must also remember that these comments are for public viewing, so we need to comment respectively becaue a little brother or sister could read these and that could really bother them. children are protective of their sibilings and parents, so your rude comments may make a child have hurt feelings and if that happens could I ask you where your parents were while you are hurting other people?

    I THINK IT IS COMPLETELY RIDICILOUS THE WAY SAME PEOPLE THINK! i went to school with all four of these individuals and for some one who has no idea what is really going on (heather- an obvious 30 year old "know it all") is completely stupid! how in the world can you say show things as this? i understand if you're made about speeding.. i myself HATE people who speed and break the law when it comes to driving because i'm terrified myself to be in a situation these individuals have gotten in but there is some things better left unsaid! keep your thoughts to yourself if there going to be negative! we don't need them during a time like this! to all the families, you're definently in my prayers! god bless-

    I'm sorry, but if my child has just been in a serious accident, the LAST place I would be is on this website covering my behind or defending myself, whichever you want to call it. Sounds like a little guilt going on to me???

    We that are parents have great concern for our youth. No, matter how each person expresses their feelings. We all learn from our mistakes. I have looked away from the wheel recently . I almost went off the road.When we are under the wheel, it truly is serious business. My prayers go out to the families.

    My son was the driver of this vehicle and I just wanted to say that the pain that this has caused him and everyone involved goes way beyond physical pain. It is so easy to sit and judge what could or should have happened and as a parent that loves her son beyond belief, I share his pain and guilt. The thousands of tears that we have cried can't change anything and this will stay with all of us for the rest of our lives. For those of you who have questioned our parenting, I hope that you never have to know how hurtful and cruel that your words have been. And for those of you who have shown so much love and support, no words can say how much it is appreciated. These kids are all wonderful people and God will continue to help them through this terrible time in their lives.

    My thoughts and prayers are with the families of these young people. I pray for their speedy recovery. Also, it is unfair to immediately point the finger at the parents of these children. They need our prayers and support. This is every parent's nightmare.
