    Jerrica, my friend was the one that was killed. I think that it was irrisponsable for no one to check to see who was driving your friend home. Because of ya'll's stupid mistake a beautiful woman was taken to early in her life. She has a 5 year old daughter! Everyone please keep her family in your prayers... She was a wonderful person and didn't deserve what happend.

    One of my friends had rode to Knox. When I seen the condition Matt was in I told me friend I would drive him home. Thank God!! I know Matt though and I feel bad for what has happened. I seen him leaving, but I thought he was with one of his friends. My friends and I wouldn't have let him drive had we known he was planning on it.
