  1. Maybe the parents of the 14 year olds should be brought in for questioning as to why their children were out driving around in a car or truck at 1am, maybe the parents should do a little jail time and be held accountable for their children’s actions

    • Hodge is my nephew and no the parents shouldn’t be put in jail because I don’t know why they where driving and it wasn’t because of the parents the kids made a big mistake to take the car without parent knowing. So before you voice your comment know the facts first please and thank you

  2. Wow! Omgoodness! Seriously! You don’t think that losing a child is punishment enough? And I’d be willing to bet that the parents of these young people we’re not aware of their actions. Ya know -I just don’t see the parents of these 14-year-old saying “oh hey here’s the keys to my truck- y’all have fun!”
    Well obviously we don’t have the details of how this tragic accident came about. But what we do know is that these 3 families along with their friends and loved ones lives will never be the same. May God be with them all and give them the strength to get through this . Sending thoughts and prayers!🙏🏼🙏🏼❤️😇😇

  3. It was a Nissan Altima and authorities think they were headed to a street party that was happening in the area. They hit a tree. The teens were from Leesburg and Bushnell I believe. That’s all I know.

  4. Children that’s what these boys were. They made a bad choice. I pray for the families . Let them heal. This should be a hard lesson for there friends. Pray for the families and don’t show judgement.
