Looks like he's holding a can of beer in his profile pic on facebook. Maybe someone should get his password and delete that.

Still many adults want to down play Teens drinking, saying it's all part of being a teen.

calling the others morons? really? a drunk underage teen out at 2 am wrecks his truck and kills his unbelted friend, yes sad for the family but no one's heart should go out the kid driving the truck drunk, try him as an adult. and where did the beer come from? and why were they out at 2am? no sympathy from me.

My sympathies go out to all involved. I cannot imagine the pain both families are feeling. One life lost, the other will never be the same. The person who provided the alcohol or sold it should be held accountable...sounds like a lot of bad choices that night. Keep Kenny King's family and friends in your prayers.

If you are out after 1am and in HS, your parents probably know you are drinking. Probably from the "if you are old enough to DIE for your country" crowd.

goodwine, "Where did the beer come from"? Really, dude!!

You could ask Sheriff Cecil how many times he bought beer on Wheeling Avenue in Glen Dale, when he was a teen!

"why don't you close dry damn?" IS "DRY DAMN" A PLACE OR SECTION OF ROAD? JUST ASKING.

Sad the boys didn't exercise common sense and as a result one is dead and the other probably won't be the same again. Booze and teens is a bad mix these days.

Back in the day when I went to JMHS the legal age to purchase alcohol was 18-years-old. Big difference is we would not drive. We'd call a buddy for a ride. We knew what could happen and we did not allow it. Me and my buddy had a fifth of McMasters nearly every day. We'd skip a class or two and head down to the creek and get smashed. Oh those days. Too bad kids these days don't use common sense and now it's too late for one of them and the other probably won't ever be the same. I could not live with myself if I knew it was my fault I killed anyone while drunk. RIP is about all that can be said.

Seatbelt would have saved him. Sad. Hard lesson.

It doesn't matter where they got the alcohol or who gave it to them. What matters is two ADULTS chose to drink alcohol and then get in a car. It is not the alcohol's fault anymore than it is the car's fault. These men bear the consequences of their actions because they bear the personal responsiblity of their decisions. The alcohol didn't force them to drink it and get behind the wheel, and this is not a first time occasion for them drinking and driving, this is just the time that something bad happened. Hold adults accountable to their actions and stop trying to villianize the person who bought the alcohol, because that's not the issue. Two men got in a vehicle drunk and now one of them is dead, that's what really matters. If they were both 21 there wouldn't be any deal made about where they got the alcohol, and I think that it is irrelevant in this case.

Dino, that's an easy question to answer. "how did we get home from the creek those days." As I said, we'd have a sober friend drive us home! We did not ever drive after drinking. We went across to the creek across from the footfall field and returned to JMHS after classes let out and got a ride. It's just that easy. But nowdays I think that area is fenced off. Thank God for the class of 1977! We had it made in the shade!

Thanks WF, I never heard of it. More importantly "How did my D A M N get through?"......... MH, you must have had some of the original DD's. Can't recall many of my other friends from mid 70's using them, but congrats.

We see this story all to often. May the young man rest in peace, and his friend learn to live with what he has done.

I am sorry for both families. It is likely that the shoe could have been on the other foot, often just depends on who has a car, not who is less intoxicated. There is no magic age.
