I know Mark Porter was involved and he's still in hospital. I heard he had a head on collision with an 18 year old boy who is on life support?? Happened after leaving Lafayette bar, in between there and Toulon. I have been looking for more info on this accident too...

A Kewanee driver was unhurt Wednesday afternoon when his truck ran off the highway on Route 78 in Stark County.
The Stark County Sheriff’s Department responded to the accident on Route 78 at 700N shortly after 4:30 p.m.
According to Chief Deputy Robert Winn, Kevin Calhoun, 21, of Kewanee, was northbound on Route 78 when he lost control of his truck on the snow- and ice-covered road.
The 2001 Ford 150 pickup truck left the road on the east side and slid into the ditch before rolling onto the driver’s side.
Also responding were the Stark County Ambulance and the Toulon Fire Depart-ment. Calhoun refused medical treatment at the scene.
No tickets were issued.
can anyone read??????

no aron did not die! Aron is very close to it but we are praying that he will pull thru. and Mark porter hit him head on. and no he wasnt comin from the lafayette bar. he was pissed becuz the bar in between toulon and wyoming wouldnt serve him anymore becuz he was wayy too drunk so he got pissed and left. and Poor Aron just happened to be on his way home howver he never made it. Mark deserves to rot in jail for what he has done. Aron was just an innocent person on his way home.

Mark Porter didn't kill Aron...but he might as damned well have. He isn't dead. He also isn't some "Kid". He is an amazing, intelligent young man who had his whole life ahead of him and it's now DESTROYED because some drunk idiot thought it was ok to drive headlong into him and destroy his life. He just turned 18. He wanted to be an MMA fighter like his best friend and my son, Nick.
I just got back from Peoria and he's a wreck, on life support. A mess. I hope Mark Porter is happy with himself right now. Really. I hope he's freakin' stellar.

Yes, Aron was innocent. A young kid with a life full of dreams that this stupid, piece of trash has destroyed. I hope Mark Porter lives in HELL for this. I hope his life is destroyed beyond measure. I've known Aron for years. He's been like one of my own sons. He was like a brother to my children. I'm a friend of his dad's. We LOVE this kid. And now I can barely recognize him behind the respirator, the bruises, cuts, blood and swelling.

Ok I've drove home from a bar drunk. But I have never drove home on a highway to do so. I live in the country around Ktown. Driving drunk is bad don't get me wrong. But I could never drive home on the highways. Too much speed. People driving home thru town is bad enough...but it probably won't maim or kill someone. Still it was stupid for me to do, but Ive always known that if I left town that bad things could happen. I know I could've hit a parked car, a pedestrian, or whatever. Sins of youth. But driving home at 55 mph or more? Stupid!

I hope you never drive drunk again. At least you've exercised some common sense. But this freaking A-hole Mark Porter, Jr. sure didn't.
Aron was coming home from work that night. The next day he was going to do his GED test. He was supposed to stay at my son's apartment for the weekend and he was starting his MMA training then, too. He waited to turn 18 for so long, just to do that. He was joining the Army and he had a whole life of hopes and dreams.
Now, we're all just hoping and dreaming that he can live another night.

Thats the problem in Stark County TOO MUCH FORGIVENESS!
Money talks and if Mr. Porter has any he will buy his way out of this whole thing. Deadbeat States Attorney will take a pay off in his pocket and prolly meet up with Mr. Porter later to smoke some rock

Let's all hope this piece of garbage is broke.
He destroyed Aron's life. His family is broken and devastated. If he lives, which is doubtful, he will be severely brain damaged. When I found out he was at the same hospital, I wanted to go drag him by his hair to Aron's room to show him what he's done.
