Highland Park Teen Killed in Dallas Crash

Colin Stone, 16, of Highland Park, died in a car crash on Northwest Highway Tuesday night, police said.

Stone was allegedly driving more than 100 miles per hour when police said he lost control, crossed the median and slammed into four vehicles, according to WFAA. Stone’s BMW then burst into flames, killing the teen instantly.

Police are investigating the possibility that Stone was street racing. The incident occurred at the intersection of Northwest Highway and Shady Brook Lane, near Half Price Books.

The 16-year-old was a student at Cistercian Prep in Irving.

    Such a sweet family. I am very sorry for their loss. Our kids were at Armstrong together briefly years ago. My sympathy to the family and friends of Colin.

    …And sympathies as well to the individuals and families of those in the four cars into which he crashed…

    A better story would be to name the other kid on the swim team with the other BMW.

    He was scheduled to receive his Eagle Scout award on Monday at his troop’s Court of Honor.

    Tragic story but hopefully will send a powerful message to teenage drivers.

    For Bill, I think you should find another forum to find “a better story”. The family likely looks at the comments on the article and your comment was inappropriate.

    Colin is in the hands of God. He has always been so loving to all of our family members. Yes, this is tragic for all involved. Yes, this is sad for all involved. I (as Colin’s great aunt) choose to remember Colin in a good light. This will be a complex journey for all of us. Please be careful when you post words on the internet. Colin has a wonderful family that loves him dearly. He has 3 little sisters that look up to him. He has friends that will never forget this. I know! I lost a dear friend to a sudden death my Senior year in Highschool.

    @Dan. Perhaps it would be a “better story” because it would help the authorities, if the other driver is wanted for questioning by the police for leaving the scene? Perhaps Other Bill was supporting the family by saying others share the blame?

    The accident had a cause and may have lessons for others, such as new, young drivers having powerful cars, or smart Eagle Scouts being assumed more careful than many 16-yr-olds. Those lessons don’t change that this was a horrible tragedy and everyone sympathizes with the family.

    So sad. Colin was my daughter’s first boyfriend. He was a very sweet, confident and talented boy. My heart goes out to both his family and all the other families involved in this tragedy. All the things that made Colin so special, were the very things that made him believe he was invincible. I am sure the other boys felt the same way too. We all learn at some point that our future is not guaranteed. Unfortunately for Colin, he learned that lesson too late.

    I can’t believe the amount of praise being heaped on this monster. And the news story calls him a “victim”.

    He’s not a victim, he’s a criminal that drove extremely recklessly at over 100mph and put the lives of other at risk, and destroyed 4 other cars.

    He should be posthumously charged with attempted murder, as per Texas law like he would if he were alive.

    @Jake. He was not a monster. Far from it. He was an otherwise exemplary teenager who did a monstrously reckless thing, hurting people and killing himself. Teenage drivers should not think this could happen only to monsters. It can happen to anyone who makes an impulsive decision to drive way too fast–even smart, talented, athletic Eagle Scouts educated in religious prep schools. A cautionary tale.

    Jake thankfully our God will not judge Colin the same as you just have. Christ died on the cross for our sins and our foolish life altering mistakes. He paid it all and said “It is finished!” There is no condemnation in Christ! Amen!

    Jake I am saddened by Colin’s death. He was a terrific boy with a terrific family who will miss him terribly. He was a positive influence on many and he was very loved.

    You may call him what you wish but God opened his arms wide as he was ushered into Heaven and said “Welcome home my son”.

    Sad story of a young life lost. It’s an unfortunate lesson to learn that some mistakes are permanent. I can see how this perspective from the seemingly culprit can be offensive. My only thought are to urge compassion in times where many people on both sides are struggling.

    I guess I would add that for a less offensive reporting option you might try the WFAA article. I find that lack of continued support for thoughtlessness is a prudent course of action. (http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/Teen-victim-named-in-North-Dallas-wreck-134768623.html)
