Fairport Cheerleaders Die In Fiery Crash

This tragic event occurred in a location close to where I lived for ten years, on a road I have no doubt trained or raced on in the past. Fairport is the next town over from Penfield, NY, where my mother and brother still live. Coincidentally, this is the same area where Jonathon Decheau lost his life recently, when a motorist ran him down from behind while he was training. CNN Story

This sounds like a case of trying to pass someone on the left lane, (on a two-lane road with the 'left' lane being the oncoming lane,) and all of a sudden the guy you're trying to pass speeds up to prevent you from passing, when all along he was driving too slooowwww in the first place.

The driver of truck that hit them is not the culprit. It's the van who was probably stalking the five teen girls in the car. Any news about him?

No idea. I'll check into it.

Why would the girl's parents allow her to drive with a special license? She's not permitted to drive after 9:00 p.m.?
