Default The price of racing stupidly....

This happened here in town last night...It looks like a Honda... ....

Two 19-year-olds are dead after the car they were in crashed into a parked semi at a loading dock of a north Salina freight company early Thursday morning. Killed were 19-year-old Jervay Jefferson of 1111 Harold in Salina and 19-year-old Cole Gutzman of Bennington. Police Lt. Chris Trocheck told KSAL News at the scene of the accident that the car was northbound on Santa Fe before the accident near the Intersection of Santa Fe and Decatur at 1:35 a.m. Police say speed did contribute to the accident and that the car clipped a power pole before striking a parked semi in the loading docks of Beaver Express. Neither victim was wearing a seat belt and Jefferson had been partially ejected. There were witnesses to the wreck and Police continue to find out whether or not any other vehicles were involved.

Should we blame it on the movies? NO
Should we blame it on the parents? NO

They are just stupid.

It'* sad to here about anyone dying, especially in something involving street racing. But nonetheless they were stupid because who would ever even step foot in a car wihtout buckling up first. God bless those two people'* souls no matter if they were stupid or not, it'* a tragedy. Let this be a reminder to anyone who street races, it is a definate wake up call for me, because I street race and I certainly wouldn't want this to ever happen with me or anyone of my friends or anyone on here.

Just on a side note, is that the same semi-trailer that they hit. It looks like it had no damage done to it.
