Teen charged with felonies after 4 die in NY crash
Associated Press – 12 hrs ago

MINEOLA, N.Y. (AP) — A teenager who tested positive for marijuana was arrested Friday in the death of four of his friends in a Long Island car crash after felony charges in an indictment were unsealed, a prosecutor said.
Joseph Beer, 17, of Queens, pleaded not guilty in state court to charges stemming from the crash last month on the Southern State Parkway. Bail was set at $2 million.
Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice said multiple felonies were brought after an analysis of a blood sample taken from Beer two hours after the crash tested positive for marijuana. He was indicted on aggravated vehicular homicide, second-degree manslaughter and other charges that could carry a 25-year prison sentence upon conviction.
"The sheer magnitude of this tragedy is unthinkable, and it could have easily been avoided if this defendant had simply made the right choice to drive sober and drive safely," Rice said. "Instead, we have four promising young lives cut short, another young man facing years in prison, and families that will forever be torn apart by this horrific crash."
Beer's lawyer, Todd Greenburg, said his client was involved in a tragic accident and will fight the charges. He said Beer's parents could not afford the $1 million in cash that must be posted to support a $2 million bond.
Rice said Beer was driving more than 110 mph at 3:35 a.m. on Oct. 8 when he lost control of his car, crashing into trees in West Hempstead. The crash, which ripped the vehicle in half, killed three 18-year-olds and a 17-year-old, all from Queens, where they had attended the same high school as Beer.
Prosecutors said Beer, who suffered minor injuries, had only a learner's permit and was not permitted to be driving between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. His parents were charged with unlicensed operation of a vehicle for letting their son drive without a license, a charge punishable by up to 15 days in jail and a $300 fine.

When will you potheads learn that marijuana is a DRUG.....it does not need to be legalized. Alcohol being legal is bad enough. Marijuana slows your perception.....these deaths could have been prevented if this kid didn't get "high" before driving. Another lesson to be learned.

He only has a learners permit at 17? More going on there than just "shitty driver"

"Prosecutors said Beer, who suffered minor injuries, had only a learner's permit and was not permitted to be driving between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. His parents were charged with unlicensed operation of a vehicle for letting their son drive without a license, a charge punishable by up to 15 days in jail and a $300 fine"


Lack of sleep causes more wrecks than anything else. Don't drive drowsy!

[link to abcnews.go.com]

"An estimated 50 million to 70 million U.S. adults experience chronic sleep disorders, according to the report, and those nights of unrest can lead to daytime nodding off.

Those between the ages of 25 and 34 were more likely to nod off while driving, and men were more likely to fall asleep in the car than women"Most of us believe that there are a lot more fall asleep crashes than reported," said Dr. Allan Pack, director of the Center for Sleep at University of Pennsylvania. "This is probably just the tip of the iceberg. It's probably not reported accurately because a number of states don't even having a 'falling asleep while driving' tick in the box when reporting a car crash

One thing though, to the people saying they can drive fine high on marijuana...how? I remember when I was a youngin', I was certainly not fit to drive after getting my smoke on.

Marijuana's brand of high ain't one you wanna drive on in my opinion.

This is not about drugs, it's about speeding. He was driving 110 miles/hour. Teenagers drive too fast. The marijuana is incidental.
