  20. Yep I saw it, Caitlin Turner

  21. Kevin Hill Kevin Hill says:

    mistakes happen – I pray that all involved come out of this ok.

  22. There’s a young man in our neighborhood (very close to this accident) who fits this description and has the same honda civic. He always drives while wearing white iPod headphones and he speeds a lot. Horrible for everybody, regardless.

  23. Regina says:

    Can anyone else verify anons claim that he died?

  24. Derik Hixon Derik Hixon says:

    “I know for a fact” that he “fits the description” of just about every young man in this valley except that this one is in critical condition fighting for his life. I don’t give a rats ass if he puts a bag over his head with eye holes cut out. We can all sit around and discuss reasons or blame later, if that’s what you choose. How about we ALL focus on prayers and positive energy for a full recovery and wait for the lesson from this horrible “accident” to run it’s natural course.

  25. Anonymous says:

  34. Mar says:

  35. It is confirmed….. He passed away. It was some friends of mine nephew.

  36. Did this young man pass away? I heard he did not.

  37. anonymous says:

    Hope everything is okay regardless

  38. Meagan says:

    @Regina
    Keep your opinions to yourself; how dare you. This is a tragedy involving a human life. He did not go into a movie theatre with a gun and take countless lives- he was driving, just like the rest of us do. We all make careless mistakes (regardless if Dylan was apart of them is irrelevant) and none of us are perfect at abiding by them on a continual basis. HE LOST HIS LIFE at 20! Have some damn respect!

    Donna, I’m so sorry for your loss. I worked with Dylan and he was always a pleasure. My prayers go out to your family.

  39. Cynthia says:

    I worked with him as well and he was always a pleasure to work with. We were always laughing and joking around when we worked together. He will be greatly missed. Donna, my thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I am so sorry for your loss. No one should ever have to loose the child at such a young age.

  40. John Lodge says:

    I drove by it didn’t look good. I had worked in a hospital for a lot years. Shook me up so sad. My prayers are with him and his family. I’ts a real tough time right now.
    God Bless

  41. Regina says:

    @MEAGER
    I only just read your comment at me and I apologize that I upset you, but I really think you misunderstood my comment because it was not directed at ANYONE involved in the accident. I am a mother of 4 my heart absolutely breaks for the family
