    If a person is so young that his/her age cannot be made public, even in an accident involving a fatality, then this individual is too young to be operating a motor vehicle on public roadways.

    I agree. This little punk killed someone!
    What happened that he crossed the center line? How many people were in the car with him?
    This is more than “an accident”……….a man’s dead.

    Yes, he was at fault, and he is overcome with guilt. I was not in the car, but the kid is my friend. In his hospital stay, which he is still currently in, he tried to commit suicide.
