Last month my daughter lost one of her good friends in a drowning accident in the Shenandoah River. Now, Wednesday night, my oldest son lost a good friend, that was on the track team with him in a car accident. We had a 6 car pile up here in Berkley Co., WV, and 3 people died in the pile up. A dump truck, driving too fast, went left of center, and it started a major chain of events. The first lady in a Corolla never had a chance. The dump truck just ran right over her car, and the 2 young men died instantly when the dump truck plowed into them next.
This young man was 18 years old, and a month away from starting college. He had a real talent in the long jump, and would have gone so far with it. I hope this is the last one of our young people to die this summer.
