16 year old hit them from behind.
May have been distracted.
So sad.

Teenagers (and 20-somethings) just aren't as mature as they used to be.
Phones have added a whole new dimension of distraction.

I've got four kids, all above the age of 14. I'd like to see the driving age raised to 18. I think it would save a lot of lives.

No,
it's just as many responsible kids out here driving.

6 teens ages 16–19 died every day due to motor vehicle crashes and hundreds more were injured.

20 older adults killed and 794 injured in crashes on average every day.

RE: NBR: Voice of the Auburn Tigers Rod Bramblett and wife killed in car accident in Aubu
A driver who is impaired by drugs, alcohol, phone, or anything else kills victims just as dead. This tragedy reminds me of the Sirhan Stacy family whose wife and 4 of their 5 children were killed by a drunk driver who was also killed. We have laws to deal with the results of such homicides AFTER the fact. Prevention is much more of a problem.

Alabama's rural highway auto death rate is TWICE the national average but like this state being #2 nationally in gun violence death rates per 100,000 population, nothing is done about it.

My oldest didn't want to start driving until she was 18. Took her a couple of times to pass the driving test.

I think of all of the high school students who drive to school. They are all in the 16 to 18 year old range.

I have seen quite a few adults doing stuff behind the wheel that they shouldn't do.

I would like to see the technology that no phone use is allowed in a car outside of hands free telephone calls.

The police say that alcohol or phone use wasn't a factor here.

I wonder if they weren't wearing their seat belts?

"Auburn police added that a full investigation remains in progress, and reported that the Brambletts were wearing their seabelts when the accident occurred."

The teen was arrested and charged with two counts of manslaughter today. He has marijuana in his system and was speeding when the accident happened.
