When will we as a society break this tragic cycle of Camaro on Camaro violence??

trinity 7 years, 11 months ago

just as soon as those darn miscreant camaros are disarmed and made tame! :) in other words-when they turn in to yugos.

I've met Lucas, sgt. He's a very nice young man and doesn't have a mullet - in fact, he's shaved. A variation from the norm!

Let's hope all are OK.

Honestly, people...two were injured in an accident, and these posts are all you can come up with?

Lame...

I hope both of them will be ok...

i heard the thud of this accident over by ninth & maine last night clearly enough to know it sounded bad. First sirens, then helicopter about an hour later. now story in news next morning. car accidents suck no matter the details of how they happen-- hope everyone involved recovers.

My heart goes out to Luke's family. He and one of my sons were best friends in grade school. It irritates me to no end to see all the derogatory remarks some of you post here. Have a heart...

It's scary to think that the accident was so serious that the Life Flight helicopter did an emergency landing in the Merc parking lot. I hope they'll both be okay.

There were so many emergency vehicles, my friend and I thought there was a fire or something. It was nuts. Hope everyone makes it out alright.

Sigmund 7 years, 11 months ago

Yeah, my bad. Didn't mean to be mean. I too wish everyone recovers fully and quickly.

anymore news on Lucas? This shocked me. Someone let me know how he is doing. We're old friends.
