    I think there was another one killed not too long ago in the Boca Chica area(?). These guys never learn.

    Take a poor kid and give him millions almost overnight? It's inevitable and I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often. Every time it's such a shame, this was a waste of a talented young life.

    i wonder what the driver was driving? more often than not, it is a car over which he had no control, by virtue of skills. many of these poor kids never owned a car before, just got a license, and went out and bought an 8 cylinder Camaro...

    What does his wealth have to do with a tragic car accident?

    Agreed. Pretty sure I read his wheel came off.

    I was in Cabarete when Oscar Taveras crashed his Camaro into a tree. Millions overnight coupled with a lack of driving experience, usually doesn't have good results.

    In this case, likely not as much as others. Refer to the gorgon's post about 8 cylinder Camaros. Nonetheless this is a tragedy as he was just starting out.
