Sad Situation

April 9th, 2007 at 02:32 pm

While at my parent's house this weekend, we found out that our neighbor's 20 YO son, Neal, really screwed his life up but good on Saturday morning. Apparently, he was in a minor accident but decided to flee the scene at a high rate of speed. Less than 5 minutes later he ran a stop sign and got into another accident, but this time he killed the driver of the other car. The man he killed was a pillar of his community and is being mourned by thousands of kids that he coached, mentored and taught.

Neal was ejected from his vehicle and taken to a local hospital. While at the hospital they discovered that he was not only drunk, but also high on cocaine. There is little doubt that he is going to spend the next 6-20 years in prison. I feel so bad for everyone involved in this horrible situation. It just makes me sick.

    That is really sad, but not unusual, it only takes a few minutes worth of bad decisions to get things really off track....How hard for all the families involved.

    This situation and one other I've learned of in the past couple of hours makes our families problems with wrecked vehicles seem like nothing. At least in our situations no laws were broken and no one was hurt. Prayers to the families and all others who mourn this situation. Very sad.
