Clutching onto a picture of her son, Anthony, Susie Moore told News 13 she's numb.

His parents said they're angry a man who didn't even have a valid driver’s license was behind the wheel.

That is so tragic. Feel so sad for the family. You would think the driver, seeing that he did not have a license, would be cautious so he wouldn't alert the police. No wonder why the moron didn't have a DL. He will have to live with that for the rest of his life.
