New stolen Grand Cherokee wrecked at 90 MPH

I live about 2 hours away from where this happened. The Jeep held up very well.. so well the driver ran from the crash with no apparent injuries. I'd say his life is pretty much over.

Re: New stolen Grand Cherokee wrecked at 90 MPH

Very tragic but it's a Laredo and I'm at least glad to see how well it held up to such a violent crash. Looks like the cabin is completely intact. But I feel for the family of the person killed.

I do not want to make light of the tragedy, but I will howeer have fun with the news cast. What's the deal? The news Anchor is about 70 and both are named Mollie? Weird.

Re: New stolen Grand Cherokee wrecked at 90 MPH

I feel so sorry for the family. I'm sure DaJour Sawyers was a good kid like all good criminals. I wonder if he is getting along with his new cellmate. Hey DaJour.....How is your cornhole doing?

Re: New stolen Grand Cherokee wrecked at 90 MPH

Wow that is sad I hope they throw away the key. My wife drives a vibe that was hit in the crash does not look like a safe car, the jeep looks ok.

Re: New stolen Grand Cherokee wrecked at 90 MPH

Why is it the AS&hole always survives but the good guy dies?

Like the perp who gets shot by police 9 times and survives but the poor cop hit by one .22 doesnt make it.

Very Aggravating!!!! Life just isnt fair!!!!

My heart goes out to his family.

Re: New stolen Grand Cherokee wrecked at 90 MPH

Just noticed this thread... yes a sad day! I've met and/or passed the families in the local stores. I live in Altoona, and the intersection is about 2 miles from home. I did drive by the scene; Vibe totally destroyed but in it's defense a "T bone" at 90 mph is going to challenge most vehicles. The WK2 was in much better shape, especially for the cabin but for insurance I'd say it was easily totaled too!

Again, sad for the Families and the neighborhood of supporting friends that knew him.

Re: New stolen Grand Cherokee wrecked at 90 MPH

Wow....so very very very sad. A good man, hard working ... hit and killed by some criminal punk in a stolen SUV. So sad. Being from Iowa originally, I know there aren't a lot of criminal punks in the state (so wonder if the 19 y.o. is originally from Iowa or what) and for such a punk to kill a decent family man with two small kids will not go over well in the Iowa criminal justice system at all. A harsh sentence will be handed down. So very sad...

Re: New stolen Grand Cherokee wrecked at 90 MPH

Dan JGC, I just came across this thread. I did not read all of the crash details, but it sounds absolutely horrible! The poor innocent man and his family! I do hope the criminal gets the max!!!

On a lighter note, I loved your 4/7 comment! I laughed out loud! I appreciate your humor and I really do need some about now. I am grateful for your cheering for me. I am just so confused as to why my Overland is lost in space. Keep cheering for me. I need it! And let's pray for that poor family!
