SNYDERSBURG — A county family has lost a second child to an auto accident.
Jared Golden, 15, died Saturday night when he lost control of his bicycleand slid under a car driven by Donald E. Kinney, 17, of Aurora, W.Va., state police said.
Last year, Golden's family won a $13 million judgment in the death of John Golden, 14.
John Golden was killed by a drunken driver Nov. 7, 1987, in a head-on collision.
The boys' father, John Golden, said Saturday the family doesn't expect to see much from the lawsuit because the driver had no insurance.
Although the deaths of the two boys seems senseless to the family, John Golden, a Mormon, said his family's religious faith helps give them strength.
"If you havefaith, if you realize what happens is for a reason and where we are going, you can put it all together," Golden said.
"Not that that means I don't miss him," he said. "It hurts."
Trooper Frank Childress said the accident appears to have been unavoidable, and no chargesare contemplated against the driver.
