1:00 am, two 15yr old girls were joy riding around in the driver's dad's car. My kid is the passenger. Neither had a dr lic. Both girls were high school
sophmores. Popular kids
on the varsity gymnastics team. My gal had been drinking but thank the gods, the driver had not. I find some solace in that fact.
Local cops flashed their lights at them and the girls sped away. Police had video on the dash showing they did not pursue (SOP in nice neighborhoods I hear) but the driver lost
it in a turn almost immediately, took out a stopsign, a ulility pole, and hit an oak tree. My wife, an MD, said the driver had a broken neck, and daughter Jenni had a brain stem injury like Dale Earnhart got at Daytona. The hope is both girls died instantly. I haven't wanted to read the official stuff nor the internet
I guess people get over this kind of thing. We haven't in the last year and a half. I'm 71 but my ex and kids
are much younger. I don't envy them carrying this around the rest of their lives. I've seen some badass stuff along the way, and was nuts way before this happened but they are complete innocents.
Pardon the drama mates. I know this isn't much in the world wide scheme of awful things.
