Teen Kills Two in Fatal Car Crash, Walks Away Unscathed, Writes THIS on Facebook

She said what?!

18-year-old Brianna Longoria is making headlines for something she posted on Facebook just hours after killing two men in a car accident.

The California teenager was driving with two of her friends in the car, when she ran a stop sign, causing the fatal accident.

While she and her friends were only taken to the hospital to treat minor injuries, the people in the car she hit were not so lucky.

Police say there were no drugs or alcohol in Longoria’s system, and she wasn’t speeding, so it’s possible she could have been suffering from a medical emergency at the time of the accident, like a seizure.

Still, her response to it all on social media seemed totally cold and devoid of any sympathy for the victims, as if she was simply posting about another day at school or even the weather.

“I’m all over the news bad car crash 2 died,” Longoria wrote, according to America Now.

This certainly is not the first time we have heard of someone responding to an unexpected tragedy on social media, though that doesn’t make it any less surprising.

You would think that the shock and guilt of taking life away from two individuals would be too much to bear, but we have apparently become so desensitized as a culture that it’s now just your next Facebook status.

Do you think it is appropriate to say anything on social media so soon following a tragedy like the one Brianna Longoria was involved in? Especially before all of the facts are apparent?

This is so far from inappropriate it makes me sad. I was the driver in a fatal crash and my passenger was killed. The pain, guilt, anger, sadness, fear, and numbness consumed me for years. I was forced by the judge in my case to talk to other teens (I was 16 at the time) so that they can be aware that accidents don’t only happen when alcohol, drugs, or distractions are present. We were on our way home from the mall and didn’t see the car coming when we turned left. Social media was not as huge part of… Read more »
