I live in the area, and take the 322 bypass at least three times a week. People pretty routinely do 70 in areas posted 35 or 45; Bam and his crew were/are also notorious for driving like banshees all around the back roads in the WC area. It’s a dangerous road. There are fatalities there all the time between speeders and kamikaze deer.

The comments at TMZ are stupefying...I’m just glad this clown didn’t kill any innocent people who were on the road at the same time. Jackass. Says it all.

No way to tell now...his remains are probably drifting out over the Atlantic right about now.

According to what I saw:”....Unidentified second person died in the crash, which happened around 3 a.m”

The moron took someone else out with him...the photo above is from his twitter page, a short time B4 the crash. His estate will be gone w/ the law suit. The Jackass.

There was one other person in the car with him. They should have picked a friend of better quality.

From what little I know of him, he lived a debauched life, but anytime a young person dies, it is sad, particularly for those who loved them. Reading this I was reminded of the text Jonathan Edwards used for his classic sermon "Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God." To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste. (Deuteronomy 32:35)

Or the other way around. They don't (and will probably never) know which person was driving.

Googled the map location for the intersection.

It looks far less dangerous than a lot of the road we have here in southwestern Pennsylvania. Between the hills, hairpin curves, potholes, lack of shoulders and wildlife, I swear we're the road kill capital of the nation.

But it looks like SE Pennsylvania has us beat in the concentration of dumb asses.

Lately, the cops have been cracking down around here big time. Most of them are unmarked cars. Ironically, most of the tickets I see being written are on the few places where the roads are decent and there are actually places to pull over without putting yourself or the arresting officer at risk.

He was a man-child, an immature fool who still acted like he was 24. Moreover, when you reach my age, you look back on 34 and realize how much you didn’t know.

He had a 911 GT3 whcih is what he was likely driving. Not a good idea to drive one of those after drinking. They take a lot of attention when you are stone cold sober.

At least he didn’t take some passerby or other motorist with him. Whoever was in the car with him certainly gets a big share of the Darwin award.

Agree Vigilanteman; SW PA roads are nothing to mess around with. The "backroads" are even worse as more times than not they are actually single lane (try getting two full size pickups past each other in opposite directions; someone has to pull off as far as they can.
Here is the part I love too; couple our under-engineered roads with bicyclists who think they have a stake on said roads as well. It's always a recipe for injury.

It’s tragic though. He was so deceived in his life that he took his life for granted. That car, from the photo, looks as if it were almost vaporized.

Someone commented on a duplicate thread that was pulled, something on the lines of: is there anyone standing around laughing now? I never saw the show(s)/movies but read enough to know that the name was quite fitting.

I’d say RIP but...I’m not sure that is possible now.

>>looks as if it were almost vaporized.<<

I'd say, pretty much; as someone up thread said he was probably vaporized. I'm sure there's not much left of him to bury. Self-cremation.

Occasionally that show would be on, when I walked through the room, and my son would be chuckling at some stunt or another....with me trailing off, muttering *stupid* *yougottabekindin'me* *selfish* *insane* *waste of time* *Jackasses*.

That car will go 0-60 in 4.1 and requires sane reflexes at normal speeds/conditions.

That is so true; I haven’t heard that phrase for years but it really is fitting isn’t it?

My son is a bit older but that is exactly what I would say about other shows....and then ban that particular show from the house. MTV started sliding into hell while my son was home and because of that, they were banned. (called cable provider and had it blocked)

But this guy's death is still so tragic (imo) in that he was fooled by the 'world' viewpoint. Now he's met our creator and found just how deceived he was and there are no second chances. Breaks my heart to tell you the truth.
