I wonder if the 18 year could have waited before pulling out into the path of the car. I wonder if the lady who hit them was going too fast!

This is the saddest thing to hear of. The thoughts of her family. What their lives are going through! How terrible! People need to learn how to drive! My prayers will forever be with her family. That little brother will always remember this. Their mom will forever be heart broken. I reach myself out and want that family to know i will be praying for them as often as they cross my mind. God. What. The. Frizz?!
