    Thats a shame.why would he speed with a child
    in the car.unless he was drunk or trying to
    Catch his girl in something that she wasn’t
    susppose to be doing.or at another niggardly house.

    You dont know what happened or wjat was going on. So for the families sake keep your comments to yourself. Only people that think negative would act like they know everything. These families are in pain. Grow up and do it fast
