It will never get easier to read stuff like this:
Witnesses said the red Ford was speeding, going 90 mph or faster, when it hit the teenager on a bicycle Thursday night.
The police car was right behind.
Christopher E. Cooper, 17, a son, a smiling classmate, and a skateboarder, died of blunt trauma from the collision.
…News of Cooper’s death hit classmates at Truman High School especially hard. Less than two hours after classes began Friday, a steady line of cars formed with parents waiting to pick up distraught children.
“He wasn’t just a good kid, he was a great kid,” freshman Katie Jones said to sophomore Lacey Hubbard later Friday afternoon at the crash site.
Our heartfelt condolences to his friends and family.by
