What a sad and tragic waste of a young man's life. Looking at the details it may come out that the car was speeding but whatever the reason I hope that other drivers, old and young, will take even more care on the roads especially at this time of year with the rain/leaves etc.
RIP and I hope the driver makes a full recovery.
