JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Florida Highway Patrol said that two children died early Sunday after the car they were in ran a red light and and smashed into another car.
Investigators said the stolen 1990 Buick was speeding down Lenox Avenue about 1:30 a.m. when it ran through the light at Normandy Boulevard and stuck another car and overturned several times.
Kadeem Howell, 11, and Cedric Reed, 15, were pronounced dead at the scene. Two 14-year-olds also in the car were taken to Shands-Jacksonville Medical Center, where Cedric Allen was in serious condition and and Corey Jackson was in critical condition Monday morning.
Two people were in the second car, which burst into flames after the crash. Linda Ervin was in fair condition at Shands and Terriney Clark was taken to St. Vincent's Medical Center with injuries described as non-life-threatening.
Troopers said the Buick was stolen Saturday from a home on Shindler Drive. No charges had been filed Sunday night, but the crash and car theft were still under investigation.
I wonder which one was driving?
I don't know, but there were two Cedrics.
Where the hell are the Parents? Why aren't these kids at home and in bed? What a friggin' waste.
Four kids under 15 all out at 130AM on Saturday.
I wonder which of the parents had reported their child missing...
Before the week is out, there will be lawsuits...
Darwin's "survival of the fittest" is put to the test again.
Prayers for the people in the other car.
That's why I questioned who was driving.
I was wondering if one of the two that survived was driving, but I'm betting the two in the front were the ones killed.
11, 14, 14, and 15 out at 1:30am??? Why? Where were their parents and who lets kids these ages roam at that hour?
...there were two Cedrics.
And one Kadeem. Don't forget Kadeem.
Didn't you read the story? The car was driving itself!
Mr. Speaker! How many more must die! How many more!
How unfortunate for the owners of the stolen car and the people in the car that was hit. As for the kids in the stolen car, sounds they got what was coming to them.
What's the chance that mama and boyfriend of the week were shooting up during this time, for at least a couple of the boys?
"Before the week is out, there will be lawsuits..."
GM Buick division has deep pockets. And of course the police SHOULD HAVE observed and then slowed and stopped the car in some gentle way so that even kids without seat belts would not have been harmed. But somehow I think this is Bush's fault.
The parents were probably in bed asleep.
Gosh, I thought I was going to read another EEEEEEEVVVIIILLLLLL SUV story.
Damn good thing it wasn't an SUV, otherwise, we'd have to put SUV banning laws into affect: for the children.
