I'm just wondering if the families of those who passed away are going to sue the kid and assuming his family. I was called to jury duty involving a case where a driver was being sued by a passenger in their own vehicle, where the vehicle was involved in an accident.

It's a well known fact that their parents usually get them the car they want as a "gift" for simply graduating from high school.

A couple of weeks ago, the NY Times had an article all about it

http://www.nytimes.com/2012/10/14/ny...ing-havoc.html

“My car from the factory, no bragging, is $53,000 after taxes,”....a 50k car, just for graduating high school?!? thats nuts.

Yep parents form the Caribbean come to the US and some spoil there kids ,giving them it all and there is nothing wrong with giving them a gift ,but that gift could cost a life and more.

seems like it is just a cultural thing, different cultures value different things. I don't agree with it but I guess I accept their culture. I am first generation polish american and the whole 30k car for a teen is the polar opposite of poles culture.

Yea it happens across all cultures, just the NYTimes article points out how specifically in those caribbean cultures . Consumerism in the United States to a degree drives these ill advised teen car purchases, in my opinion.

i had that exact thing happen to me 10 years ago. I'll give the short version now since im not on my comp. But long story short, i was driving friend home and his friends, all of whom were drunk. The kid in the front wanted to stop at wawa, i said no, he then preceded to grab my wheel and i lost control. I was able to steer it from anything bad,just ended up going over a high curb. air bags went off. His eye/face got messed up from it. He sued me/ insurance.
Gotta love friends.

Color me confused, but what is your point? Malicious intent combined with a traumatizing event that, for some victim's, is worse than death > retard driving killing his passengers in terms of the need for justice.
