Sad for their parents and families loss but as far as I'm concerned they received a Darwin Award.

Driving 50 miles an hour on a quite street where they could have EASILY driven their minivan into somebody's house and been murderers as well as idiots.

It is always sad when lives are lost, but at least he's not going to hurt another person again.

Maybe it will be a wake up call for all the kids that knew him -- to change their dangerous & harmful lives before someone gets hurt.

The truth is when someone behaves dangerously whether it is dealing drugs or driving recklessly someone is bound to get hurt.

I think more parents & responsible citizens should be involved in making Palo Alto a safe city to visit & to live in.

There is no excuse for such recklessness.

Glad this memorial was finally taken down. I cant believe a pair of teens could act this foolishly several houses away from me. They mad a poor choice that cost them their lives, I am glad nobody else was hurt.
