peachesncream thank you for your concern. I'm very close to the family and they were well aware of the accident prior to the pic being posted. this is a situation of a drunk driver boyfriend and drunk girlfriend driving with a 10 yr old in the van. thankfully he was wearing his seat belt, because neither adult was. they're both idiots and if her exhusband is worth a penny he'll take custody of his children and keep them away from either of them.

If the ex husband is worth a penny?? Obviously you aren't that close of a friend of the family or else you would know if her ex husband was worth anything, or whats going on with the kids. Don't bring the kids into this. IF you were smart and considerate you would never post anything like that to where her kids could get online and read it, since they are old enough to get on the internet. I AM family, you don't know if she was drunk or not all you are doing is assuming, maybe you should leave the kids or the ex out of this and mind your own business.

Tiredofcrazies Im not sure how you are close to the family but if you really cared you wouldn't be pointing any fingers. I dont think you really know the situation at all, how do you know who was wearing their seatbelt? I think before point fingers you might want to look in the mirror. Assuming only makes an ASS out of you and me which is why I'm not assuming so that makes you the ASS. I think the worst thing the exhusband could do would be to take the kids away from their mom because they need her more than they need him. Get a life and butt out of family business. We as family members would greatly appreciate it!

for those who do not know the people involved should really keep the rude comments to yourselves. you have no idea what these people are going through. I know the family involved and the situation. To say her exhusband should take the kids away is just rude! So, i say if you don't know these people well, and what they are going through you should keep your rude negative comments to yourselves and let them deal with this themselves!!
