Investigators say Connor Givans was driving 84 mph before he drove through a stop sign and crashed into Cortez’s car.

  1. Sigh…..Nineteen years old and speeding. Young people, and some who are older, love speed. Sooner or later, tragedy results from speeding. Speeding and ignoring Stop signs is even more dangerous. Now, a young man and his mother are dead, and this young man who was speeding is going to prison. Terrible, so sad, and so preventable.
