  1. I agree, trees before speeding and seatbelts. Avoidable and preventable! The weather and the tree are not to blame. It’s the one sitting in the driver’s seat that decided to drive fast in the rain and decided not to remind the passenger who was ejected to put their seatbelt on. Even if it’s only a “short distance” to where they were going. I’m sure they live nearby. Now deal with the tragedies that lie before them forever. Happens all the time, you hear these accidents where people are ejected because they failed to put on their seatbelt that only takes 2 seconds to put on. Smh

  2. This crazy bitch ran red lights speeding on delta fair blvd leading up to Leland where the dumb bitch lost control and ran into a tree. There was just a similar crash in Antioch last month where two young teens lost their lives because of speeding in wet weather. Unfortunately both of these times, the driver is to blame. They’re in the driver’s seat driving unsafe because they choose to make a bad decision. Luckily no one else was involved in both cases. Smh
