Car Crash 
I'm not sure why this is in the news in the first place.. car crashes happen quite frequently.. but anyway what were the specifics of the crash? The road in the picture looks perfectly straight, how did they manage to collide? Did one cross the center line or something? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:54, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
A614 accident 
I am a driver and am always amazed at the use of the word accident. 99.9% of road "accidents" could be avoided if the drivers were being careful and attentive.
Then if you had been involved in a crash and neither driver could be said to be negligent in any way then it is an "accident" in this example head on crash where vehicles explode doesnt say to me it was an "accident" I am not such a great driver myself and sometimes am aware of incidents where I could have had a crash, and so on and so on. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 05:11, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
- The word 'accident' is defined by intent - if neither party has the intent to drive their car head-first into the other, then it is an accident; otherwise, it is a hit-and-run, or suicide, or so on and so forth. You are correct in stating that negligence has nothing to do with it. --220.127.116.11 16:23, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

I hear that it was Thomas Hudson (16), Jay Thompson (18 from Rainworth), Joshua "Drinky" Drinkwater (18) and Ross Johnson (19 from Rainworth). I live close by and knew 3 of the 6 victims. RIP. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 12:25, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
From Mansfield, United Kingdom - In response to the first comment made at the top of the page.... 
I think the boys who died in this crash were just genuine lads who were off to see a friend. They weren't drunk, they weren't high, and certainly not 'chavs' as you so eloquently put it.
It was a tragic accident. They died in the most horrific way possible, all the people involved, no matter how old or young they were. People die on that stretch of road alot - and these people, the poor things, were added to that number so far this year. Human error causes alot more problems than you think - whether putting something wrong into a till, or a car accident. It wasn't intentional so therefore, an accident.
I think that you judging them when they have only just died when you don't even know the story or them is sick pathetic and childish. How would you feel in that situation, where your friend or family member had just died in a pure accident like that?
You are totally unbelievable (this is aimed in response to the person who commented firs toff calling the people who died 'chavs'. Sorry, it's not fair) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 20:04, 18 February 2009 (UTC)
