Hollowed Ground...idiots? I'm sure you've lived by the book your whole life right? Before you assume to ask if they are high on booze or pot, maybe think it could have been a tire blow out or any other number of things. It doesn't really matter the reason, these 2 young men have family on here reading and don't really need your rude assumptions. Prayers perhaps, but no crude commenting. God forbid it ever be a family member of yours.
