Its sad. The worst part about it is that shane didn't have a drivers license so the state will go after him and file for probably manslaughter

They only get manslaughter charges if they are drunk or under some other influence.. He will get a driving on suspended. Shane and his family have been thru alot in the last 10 yrs and hes the kind of guy who will never forgive his self. Sad sad day. RIP DJ. See you again one day.
so sad

i went to school with shane and his sister who unfortunately died in a car wreck years ago. My brother is a state trooper he is the one that said the state will likely go after manslaughter charges. I don't agree with it but unfortunately this is commonwealth and they do what they want. I know shane is broken over this and as someone already said he will never forgive himself for it.

Well ur brother is an idiot and it shows that they will hand anyone a badge.. They may officially charge him with manslaughter but i bet you 5k it will never stick.. Driving with out a license cant be justified as carelessly killing someone.. More than likely it wont matter cuz if you know shane like i do then he was prolly drinkin anyway.. And thats if he even lives. It has been said that he slipped into a coma tonight. I dont know what to say to his mom cuz i know everything she went thru b4 is being torn back open, so im not sure how he is exactly. The only way they can justify manslaughter is if his ability to drive was some how impaired and he still drove. Just cuz he didnt have a piece of plastic in his possesion doesnt mean his ability to drive was impaired, unless he was under the influence.. Common sense.. Commonwealth has the right to press charges, not to bend laws and make new ones up..

my brother is not an idiot. It shows a true idiot when you lash out and start calling names and getting ignorant for no reason. Thats how people end up getting beat down. Running their mouth for no reason and the commonwealth especially ky charge people without reason all the time. Stop getting mad and calling names for no reason. Its uncalled for. Grow up and think before you reply.
so so

They can charge him for manslaughter due to excessive speed. It was said that he was extremely over the speed limit. That could result in manslaughter. For the person that is callin u names is only looking like a fool because he/she is so WRONG! my brother in law went thru this himself. I have family who r attorneys. They deal with these ALL THE TIME!

me too. My boss spoke to his dad yesterday. His dad said he was doing fine and was definitely going to pull through and be ok. Couldn't have been hurt to bad if he walked to the gas station for help.
