    I assume Mr. Gustin is on the phone in his avatar explaining to police how he determined this crash was an accident and not the consequence of negligence… or, how negligence is accidental.

    Or, maybe he's trying to re-enroll in elementary school… hard to say.

      Instead of attempting to make yourself seem intelligent to the few that are reading this maybe you should consider that there are family members who are grieving the loss of their son, brother, grandchild, friend…The list goes on. This is not an attempt to dissuade what happened but merely a heartfelt plea to please be considerate of those who lost a loved one today.
