18 yr old driver

This is why my kids will be restricted to the passenger seats only in the Cobra for many more years. Terrible tragedy.

Saw that on svtperformance when it first happened. His name was Blair. The kid was trying to showoff to his buddies in another car and tried to pass on a hill and went head on into a Toyota Avalon I believe, killing its driver too. Sad, story but could have been prevented. I feel more for the innocent victim in the other car that left a wife and child behind!!!

Yeah, I saw it first on the SMC site when I was browsing and followed the link they had to svtp where the discussion had degraded terribly about the incident. Makes me glad I started out with an '82 chevy malibu 4 door v-6 I inherited. The carb was prone to hesitation especially when cold so I always knew I had to be extra careful driving it.

If either of mine do drive anything with power at a young age it will be on a closed track at a driving school. Just too much temptation to show off when you are that young and too easy to get caught up in the moment and make a careless mistake that could have easily been prevented.

Very true, it could have been prevented. But the good out of all that is that hopefully someone or many will see that picture and realize it can happen to anyone at anytime.

When I think back to the way I used to drive, it's probably good that my first car was a Renault that didn't even have power steering. Has anyone seen the Allstate commercial that shows all the teenagers driving and a voice says "Last year 6,000 teens went out for a drive and never come back." I don't think I will let my kids drive.

It is indeed a sad thing that lives were lost for someone merely to "show-off."

Sadly, since I'm an avid motorcyclist (I own a stupid-fast Honda VTR-1000F V-twin sport bike), I've encountered similar scenarios with young sport bike owners. Some of my younger friends are no longer with us--all because they had to show-off for friends. There's something about the sense of immortality that comes with youth that can sometimes turn a sport bike or a fast car into a fatal relationship.
