TEENSAVERS heart go out to the victims of the Memorial Day weekend crash.

More news on that tragedy that has rocked Irvine.    Irvine Police Chief Henry Boggs told the LA Times that the bail on Austin Jeffrey Farley has been increased to one million dollars.

Farley was arrested early Sunday morning after a horrific crash at the intersection of Culver and Irvine Blvd. in Irvine.   The accident left 14-year-old Northwood High Student Ashton Sweet brain dead, and several others injured.

Farley has a long list of run-ins with authorities before, and a previous drunk driving conviction.   Officers arrested Farley on suspicion of driving under the influence following the early morning crash.

The hearts of the Teensavers team, an company based in Irvine, go out to the Sweet family, as well as the grieving students and community members in Irvine.

This was a case of kids doing the right thing, and parents being responsible to make sure their children were safe.   It’s unfortunate that a driver, with an apparent history of drug and alcohol related arrests, may have again be under the influence at the time of the crash.

Teensavers counselors reminds parents to talk with their kids about alcohol and drug use.
