    That is correct, seatbelt use may have saved a couple of them.

    We don't need a new stadium! We need shoulders on these back roads and the trees that are right on the road cut down!! Maybe it would save a life!!

    Maybe people should start driving the posted speed limit.

    Shoulders and trees were not involved in this accident.

    Yeah I know that but while we are on the subject of all these accidents I wanted to get on my soapbox about those issues as they are alot of times the killers(trees) whether it be the drivers fault(recklessness) or not!

    you can't fix stupid no matter how much money you throw at a problem. This was a tragic incident caused by kids speeding and not wearing seatbelts. Traffic lights, wide shoulders and clearing trees wouldn't have changed what happened.

    This is sad and I truly feel sorry for the accident, but these back roads are a time-bomb... I am waiting for a deer to jump out in front of me and I have to slam on my brakes and one of these morons slam into the back of me.

    It is a shame…
    I totally agree! I also live in the area...off Trinity Church Road. People drive way too fast on these back roads. Now that it is dark commuting to and from work, it is even more scarier. Had a person on my bumper the other night (Route 6) with his/her lights blaring in my side and rearview mirrors. I was going 55 in the posted 50 mile speed limit. A couple of times it appeared the driver was trying their best to pass me on a double line. Thankfully, I was turning left, and he/she sped around me! If you are that much in a hurry, you need to leave earlier. Just had a bad accident on our road a couple of weeks ago. Teenage girl going too fast on a Sunday morning. The people that lived in the home across from the accident said the car was wrapped around the tree, traveling by herself, though following other teens, trying to keep up. A helo had to come get her, though I have never heard any news about what happened to her, or who she was. In the last month, I have been awakened 4 times to hear ambulances screaming past our home and twice I have heard helicopters landing nearby.

    The roads are not the problem...the people driving way too fast is. Common sense is the factor.

    I totally agree that drivers are responsible but on that particular roads there are many times that deers and ice patches have landed responsible drivers into a tree that is right on the road.

    Speed, too many kids in the car, no seatbelts, driver inexperience and youthful indescretion were all factors here, not shoulders and trees. Add to that breaking the law. Isn't it illegal in MD for a driver that young to have so many young passengers in the car? Just so I don't sound completely heartless, my sincere condolences to the families and friends of all involved.
