    Not nice for the family but everyone wants to see news as it happens. If the picture makes one more young driver think twice about speed then it has served a purpose. Deepest sympaty to the families.

    This picture should not be in the paper out of respect for the families and friends! I would not want to find out the death of someone close to me by having their accident thrown in my face online!! My condolences to the friends and families of the 2 men. RIP

      I agree 100%. I know they have to announce the news but a picture is just inappropriate when it involves a death. Please NG more pics when someone has died. Think of their families and friends.

      Tanya I am sorry the picture bothers you but welcome to todays world. This is news you see it in the papers on the TV and here on the internet. If you do not wish to see it please pack up all of your belongings drop them off at the dump, Move to the woods and become a hermit.

      It is no worse seeing this image where I cannot see the make/model of the vehicle (notice they have the car somewhat covered for anonymity?) than it is to hear on the street from random people that someone I loved has passed on through horrible circumstances because nosy people like to gossip. John Boy is 100% correct. Focus on the true tragedy here, the loss of innocent life and the horror of what the survivor will carry with her for the remainder of her life.
