See in paper today that it was a young kid (17) returning home after a soccor game he played in. He cut short another car and clpped it sending himself into a spin and over the rail. The kid is in ICU. Makes any parent shutter thinking this could just as easily be them in this situation. I wish him and his family the best.

Cell phone or booze or both?
