The victim was not even able to survive long enough to make it to the hospital. His injuries were so severe that he was pronounced dead at the scene of the car crash. Police state that at this point, it is not believed that drugs or alcohol played a part in the man’s reckless driving. He was simply in a hurry to get to wherever he was going.
Although the details of the driver and his victim have not yet been released, there is no doubt that the man who was killed has left behind family and friends who will miss him dearly. Because of the youth’s reckless behavior on the road, another man was killed without warning and without a chance for him to say goodbye to those he loved most. The biggest tragedy in this incident is that the victim was not breaking any rules or any laws. Unlike the driver that killed him, he was going the speed limit and driving as a responsible citizen should. The motorist who caused the rollover accident, on the other hand, was using all three lanes of the highway to pass other vehicles that he felt were going too slow. His rush to get to wherever he was going cost so much more than just a speeding ticket would have. As the man waits in a local county jail for an upcoming trial, he is undoubtedly learning that it doesn’t pay to speed. In contrast, it has cost his victim everything.
