    Profound condolences to the family and acquaintances of the departed. This is a I’ve cut short much too soon.

    Why was a 15 year old riding a scooter at that unholy hour of the night when he should have been safely tucked away in bed? Parental irresponsibility is partially involved here.

        True! Training a child to walk the straight and narrow road in this era of decadence is a huge challenge. This world has gone insane. Good things are scoffed at while immorality is lauded. We are in neck deep excreta.

    admin all you have to do that report again
    what you mean de scooter was going west.
    was it coming down from Charles avenue?
    did de accident occur at the intersection?
    was the Rav speeding? what does the driver remember?
    what did he notice about the scooter before the impact?
    since Thursday night that happen and dat is de report all you can give?
    read it for yourself.
    now and again that area seems to have accidents that doesn’t appear to have a coherent explanation.
    2 young men
    their bodies so fragile ………the photos I saw suggests a serious impact on a little scooter.
    we careless with justice
    we playing for time? ……….until it’s time to pay up
