Sure seems like he was traveling a bit too fast. I liked him more on Bam's show.

Aparently he tweeted a pic of himself drinking with friends shortly before the accident so alcohol might have been a factor.

Very sad.

You may call him a drunk driver, but to me. he was a drunk driver probably on some REALLY GOOD other drugs too.  

Plus he was driving a Porsche GT3, which just shows he enjoys life period. But, yes, it is good he didn't kill any other random people.

Talk about incriminating evidence.

I didn't realize that this guy lived in the Greater Philly area. The location of the crash is about 15 to 20 miles west of where I live.

Hope his family saved some of that money, they are sure to get sued. The pic of him drinking on twitter seems to be pulled.

Ah yes, its ok that he killed the passenger - he was only enjoying life. Its no big deal - just one less person besides him - aren't we lucky he didn't kill more people? Lets all just giggle about it and ride purple ponies.

Not anymore he doesn't.

I never really watched Jackass, and I absolutely hated Viva La Bam, but still, I feel bad for his family, and especially for the family of his passenger.

It's too bad that so many kids probably idolize those guys (though, to be clear, that is the kids' parents' problem, not the Jackass guys).

I think this will bring things into a different light. I met Wee Man outside a bar one night in Manhattan Beach. He was having quite a good time. I just think he had enough brains not to get into a suped up sportscar and speed.

Many of these public figures just lose sight of reality way too much. Iit's a shame they take people with them.

I was saddened to hear this, he was one of my favorite guys on the crew. Unfortunate that he may have been drinking, and apparently he was going 110 MPH at the time of the crash  Wow! Just goes to show it can happen to anyone- we can all overestimate our ability to safely drive after an evening of drinking.

I for one will always remember him as the guy who got his ass kicked by a female Vietnamese kickboxer and took it like a champ:

Indeed. I think he made a stupid mistake, and of course to the family of the passenger, that isn't much of a consolation, but this obviously wasn't malicious, and like I said, this could have happened to anyone.

I'm tired of hearing BS like that. No, it really isn't just a random happenstance like ya'll make it sound. He made a decision to go to a bar, to drink, and then to drive. He made the choices.

Plenty of people either do not drink, or they only drink when they have a DD or when they are at home. It isn't just "going to happen" to them. I enjoy a drink here and there, but never have more than one beer. That is even when I am at home and not going to drive for the next 12 hours.

So, is this just some luck of the draw? No. I give the guy credit for making hilarious shows, but he made much more than a stupid mistake. He killed somebody else. I don't think that just "happens" to anybody. If you think it could just "happen" to you, I think you have a serious issue with self control, and I really don't want to be on the road anywhere near you.

Call me a kill joy, but when you kill somebody else........

Yes he did make his choices. Millions of Americans go out to bars and restaurants and drink and manage to get home just fine. Unfortunately, he was not responsible with his drinking, and he lost his life and another person's, which is very sad and senseless.

But I guess if you've been a saint your whole life and never once drank too much at once and gotten excessively inebriated, then it's easy for you to sit there in judgment. I've never driven drunk (though I have driven after having a few beers over the course of several hours), but I have absolutely been at a level of intoxication where I definitely could not safely drive and neither he nor I are bad people for having been in that state. For Christ's sake, he paid for this bad decision with his own life!

I've never driven drunk, but I think anyone can overestimate their ability to do so. I'm glad you're responsible with your drinking, it's commendable, but you can't control other people's actions, so really the only way to completely avoid the possibility of being an innocent victim is to just never drive.

My issue is not (ironically) with the people who drink and drive* - it is with the attitude we, as a society in general, seem to have about the whole matter. We say "yes, people are responsible for their actions", but then it turns into a "wow, this really can happen to anybody" type deal. It shouldn't be that way. Nothing wrong with drinking, but control yourself. That means not putting yourself into a situation where you can lose your ability to make good judgements. Don't get to the place where you make bad judgements and then expect yourself to act rationally.

To put it differently, we all have sexual desires. Does that mean we go out and rape people? Hell no. You control yourself, you have a reasonable outlet for your desires. When somebody does rape somebody, we don't say "oh man, wow, it really can happen to anybody".

Not a perfect example, but it'll have to do since I'm running off to a meeting in 30 seconds.   I think it vaguely makes my point.



* Of course I have problems with people drinking and driving. For the sake of this specific argument, though, I am making a point about the attitude we have, almost a complacency toward the issue. Don't for a second think that I don't mind drunk drivers.

Also, that does not apply. If you plan on drinking way too much, then make it damn near impossible for yourself to drive anywhere. Again, nothing wrong with drinking - just for the love of all things good, don't let yourself drink too much and then drive. Make it impossible for yourself to do so - take a cab to the bar - don't drive to the bar then expect yourself to say "oh, I'll take a cab home when I'm too drunk".

If you don't do things like that, I think you're being irresponsible and shouldn't be drinking.

My 2 cents....

A-freaking-men.

It's a Darwin award in my eyes straight and through. Also goes to show what happens to the vast majority of previously below average joe's who all of a sudden grow rich and famous and buy expensive toys and what not. They all invariably loose it and get some sort of invincibility complex or something. I just find it unforgivable that he killed someone else in the process. Granted if this other person was sober (unlikely) then he should've known better.

Here´s what I don´t understand. How is the passenger killed so innocent here? You choose to get on board with a drunk driver, you are making a dangerous bet. In this case, this passenger lost his bet. He wasn´t driving, but he made a stupid choice.
