why are you guys posting about a random crash with names of those involved. maybe the person who crashed into said victim is distraught and doesnt need their name plastered all over the internet for the sake of your news story. was there a crime commited? was this a DWI? u never mentioned as much. i think its wrong to throw names around for such things as accidents. thats just my humble opinion. you guys should check your role. i like local news......but, yea. call me crazy. dont know why an accident needs names, and ages of said people involved. :shrug:
