    I've never understood why someone might think a baseless and insensitive opinion might be relevant to the development of a story. Before knowing anything at all, you've made an assumption about the integrity of the driver. RebelGTP, you are a troll. Find something better to do with your time.

    My rights to voice my opinion allow me to post what I did. If his/her family wishes the truth to be told, then have them tell it. How can you be sure that what you said is true? You were not there either. Once again I said I would not be surprised, but I know I do not know all of the details. People voice opinions like this every day, as protected by federal law. If I am wrong, I am wrong, but do not attempt to prevent me from voicing my opinion.

    He Was Not Racing. He Was Just Driving Home. I Wouldn't Put Your Opinion Out There If You Don't Actually Know What Happened Because You Will Have The Wrong Person Read It And Not Be Happy. I'm Sure If His Family Read This They Wouldn't Be Happy, They Would Be Pretty Upset. So Please Keep Your Opinions To Yourself Thank You.

    The facts that can be established by watching the video is that the car is a Honda, a brand of car frequently modified for racing, both illegally on the street and legally on the track. The car appears to have an aftermarket exhaust tip sometimes referred to as a "fart can" which makes the car that it is installed on louder than normal. Now I am going to voice an opinion here... This is only an opinion, and should taken as such... no more, no less. It would not surprise me to find out that this was a teen or young adult that was either street racing or driving recklessly for "speed thrills."

    This accident was NOT at the intersection, it was 1/4 mile west of Rt. 2. It should not affect traffic on Rt. 2, but Roscoe Rd. to the west was closed.
