    I've heard it is about $10,000, but I wouldn't swear to it. A ground ambulance is pretty expensive in itself.

    Why are charges pending? Was this other than a mere bad accident???

    Praying for him.

    God bless.

    This is really sad. Another young life struggling to stay alive because of speed. My prayers are with the family.

    The phrase "way too much" comes to mind. I've driven that road more than a few times and have many close calls. Way too many turns to to be going too fast on it.
    Hope he comes out of it ok.
