  1. If you drive down the street at any given time you will see 1 out of 3 cars with a driver on the cell phone or texting. This story is sad for the families that have lost loved ones. Jew or non Jew. This not justification to continue to look at Stop Signs as ” optional ” as many of our Neighbors do .

  2. It was an accident most likely caused by inexperienced driver, speed, wet roads. Plain and simple, very sad for the 2 young boys who died, thank goodness the other 4 people in 3 other cars are all ok .
    So you never know when an accident may happen, do everything you can to be safe; seatbelts,no cells or texting, no drinking, plenty of sleep and rest.

  3. This is terribly sad. I am so sorry to the family(s) who lost their loved ones. I can only imagine the shock, pain, and grief this family is going through right now. My deepest condolences…there are just no words..

  4. its the same srtory. people dont know how to drive. it seems like they’re just handing out liscences regardless of what the test scores are! every time you drive on the roadways YOU are responsible for your actions. YOU are respomnsible for the safety of yourself, your passengers, pedestrians and the other vehicles on the road. YOU have a choice to drive safely and not be distracted by the cell phone, or the bowl of cereal in your left hand and the spoon in your right hand. take the first step in making the roadways safer! YOU can do it. also if 25% of the cars on the road did the speed limit it would stop the other 75% from speeding cause they would be all blocked from going any faster. drive smart and wake up, good drivers . WE can control the roadways!!!

    To the people who are commenting about poor driving skills. I understand what you are saying, but have some respect for the two that lost their lives and keep your opinions to yourselves just this time. Clearly, people who knew these two left comments on here. So lets have some respect.

  14. Poor driving skills or not, an accident is still an ACCIDENT!! no one leaves their house thinking ooh maybe i should get into an accident today just because I feel like it?! seriously people have respect for the two young individuals who have passed away. My prayers go out to both of their families. I also wish a fast recuperation to the other drivers who were injured. And remember everyone always drive Safely, and have extra precaution especially in bad weather, having a 4 wheel drive isn’t an excuse to speed through ice & snow.

  15. For every body who lives in Lakewood may know Cedar Bridge arrownd where the accident happend every body speeds up BUT unfort… the road was wet and icy. With this conditions it’s very easy to loose control of the vehicle. Be carefull every body, do not forget that even the most experience people can loose control ,if you are speeding plus the wheather conditions.LETS DRIVE SAVE!

  16. RIP JayC and Kike.. I didn’t know you guys, but i know that you were loved.. i walk through school and in the hallways i see all of the people that love and care about you crying. it makes me tear up just trying to comfort them.. everyone knows you’re in a better place now.. but the burden left behind it huge.. Everyone loves and misses you <33 and for those of you who miss them, & read this article crying, just know that one day you will see him again.. and he's watching each and every one of you up there… he'll be laughing with the angels about your silly mistakes 🙂

  17. omg i still can’t believe this happened. i promised jc i would go spend time with him and now he’s gone. i love you buddy r.ip.
    to all you people who are saying they were unexperience drivers, you make no sense because anyone could lose control of a vehicle within a blink of an eye. just because they are young doesnt mean they didn’t know how to drive. i’m standing up for the boys who passed away. they were incredible people and fun to be around. don’t talk about them if you was not there to actually witness the crash. don’t say they were texting or speeding when you honestly don’t know because you was not in the car with them. if you have nothing nice to say don’t say it at all

    R.I.P Jayce and Kike<3

  18. JayCe-

Even though you are gone, you will never be forgotten. It only happens to the good people. you lived a great life. I love you JayCe <3. Rest In Peace.

  19. REST IN PEACE BIG BUDDY (JAYCE) …I MISS YOU SOO MUCH. NOBODY HAS FORGOTTEN ABOUT BOTH OF YOU GUYS..YOU GUYS ARE IN OUR HEARTS UNTIL WE ALL DIE..I STILL TILL THIS DAY CANT BELIEVE THIS HAPPEN..I DROVE BY THE SITE LAST NIGHT AND ALL I WANTED TO DO IS CRY..I MISS YOU SOO MUCH BIG BUDDY..YOU CHANGED MY LIFE FOREVER..I KNOW YOUR HAPPY NOW AND WE ALL HAVE TO BE HAPPY BUT IT IS HARD TO DO THAT WHEN A AMAZING PERSON LIKE YOU HAS PASTED AWAY… I LOVE YOUUUU
