    the driver causing the crash is fine, while three young men were killed... this is just stupid
  • Such a tragedy. The young man wasn't a typical college football player, either. Worked full-time at a grocery store and was literally a walk-on in college football. He would have been an inspiration to other young men who were overlooked for a sports scholarship. At least he signed his contract in May, so the money will help his family. My condolences to all who loved him.

    I was literally driving on that road this weekend. Moments like this really remind you how precious and unpromised life is. my deepest condolences

    Crash took out three young men all with futures…condolences to their families.
  • @marvin7533
    I couldn't imagine being a family member and friend being on the scene looking at the aftermath.
  • @JeffWelsh-pc6kw
    The bond these men had...and to die all together it's heartbreaking.
    In addition to a number of other accusations, the motorist who caused the collision BETTER face three counts of vehicular manslaughter. This is absurd. That vehicle was utterly destroyed.
  • @Blue2crows
    It’s heartbreaking to see the family mourn there loss. Be grateful for today.
  • @robertfox8855
    Nothing good happens after midnight !! As a 32 year police officer I can tell you that’s a Fact! So sorry for the families involved!
  • My heart breaks for the family and friends of the three young men. All of you have my deepest sympathy for your losses.
  • @nancyharman4795

  • @naitjj1

  • @Cindy54504
    This is a tragic ending for these young men that had their whole lives ahead of them.💔
  • @Mindthatbiz
    That driver who caused this crash BETTER be charged with 3 counts of vehicular manslaughter amount a host of other charges. This is ridiculous. That car literally was ripped to shreds. 😭

    There's 1,000,000 HS football players. 75,000 make it to the NCAA. 16,000 become draft eligible. 250 are drafted. 75 make it onto a NFL team roster. The odds and likelihood of doing what Khyree Jackson did are so insanely remote, it makes what happened all the more tragic.

    The damage to the Charger is just horrible. Turned my stomach. RIP young men.
  • @DvonCarr
    I would NEVER be the same MENTALLY had i seen THIS happen with my OWN eyes. Just SAD for the families of all involved.
  • @5.2litrecat45
    The damage to the Charger seems to indicate the silver car wasn't the only one traveling at a high rate of speed.
