Mother Of Westerly Teen High School Dropout With Suspended License Who Killed 2 People Driving Wrong Way On I-95 Is Not A Victim


Source: Three people died in a head-on crash that involved a wrong-way driver on Interstate-95 in North Stonington Wednesday night, according to state police. Troopers identified the three victims as 85-year-old Roger Noel of West Warwick, RI, 83-year-old Dorothy Noel of West Warwick, RI, and 17-year-old Abigayl Lanphear of Westerly, RI. Lanphear, according to the Rhode Island Division of Motor Vehicles, was driving with a suspended license.

State police said they received phone calls around 7:45 p.m. on Wednesday about a driver headed in the wrong direction. Shortly after, two vehicles were involved in a head-on crash between Exit 93 and Exit 92. During their investigation, police determined Lanphear drove the wrong-way in a 2002 Mercedes Benz CLK. Lanphear was headed southbound in the northbound lanes and crashed into a 2017 Honda Accord driven by Roger Noel. A passenger in the Mercedes Benz CLK, 17-year-old Jada Laboy of Westerly, RI, suffered serious injuries. 

This girl’s family is getting a lot of sympathy for this one and I couldn’t remain quiet any longer. Two innocent elderly people were killed by an out of control teenager driving a Mercedes with a suspended license. According to Westerly Sun the girl was a high school dropout too.

Lanphear was no longer a student in the Westerly Public Schools, having left last year to pursue a GED, according to Superintendent of Schools Mark Garceau. He learned of Lanphear’s death when Chief of Police Shawn Lacey called him at about 10 p.m. Wednesday night to inform him of the crash.

And the the passenger in her car who lived is a frequent runaway.

Gee whiz, I wonder how they ended up going the wrong way on the highway? I’m sure alcohol or drugs played no part in the matter whatsoever.

I thought about whether or not to write this blog because some might consider insensitive, since the girl who killed two innocent people also died. But then I saw all the legion of excuses on community Facebook pages:

Nope, sorry. I’m gonna go ahead and judge on behalf of the two innocent dead people, and their grown children who survived in the backseat. Just because the girl didn’t survive doesn’t mean we have to treat her like some sort of victim here. She died a killer. I have no sympathy for her whatsoever.

I’d also like to know where the parents were. I understand that by the time they reach 17 kids are becoming their own person, and they’re break rules. But why does a kid who has a suspended license, and who was allowed to drop out of school by her parents, have access to a Mercedes?

Her mother is getting lots of sympathy over on her Facebook page after she updated her profile picture.

But maybe being besties with your kid when they really needed a stern adult to get their destructive lifestyle back on track, isn’t the best way to parent. And now two innocent people are dead, and their killer is being treated as a victim.

Sorry, that makes me sick. My oldest is getting up there in age, and like most teenagers she has a rebellious streak. But you better believe that if she’s so troubled that she’s dropping out of high school, and has a suspended license at the age of 17, then she’s not leaving her room until she turns 18.

    Anyone who passes in an accident is a tragic shame. All who have been affected by this senseless mistake are mourned. No one commenting on this knew anyone involved and if you did your reporting false facts. Let’s all hope that these incidents disappear so we never again need to continue to hurt each other. Lets rise above and help all heal instead of ripping open wounds. All were and are loved. Everyone of us are facing the black and white truth. Parents and children are trying to do the right thing. Lets let them.

    It’s pretty hard to get killed in a Mercedes if you wear a seatbelt. And it’s pretty hard these days not to wear a seatbelt unless you like to listen to warning alarms going off in your ear — the Westerly Sun said she didn’t wear hers. Her license was suspended and she drove the wrong way onto I-95. She beat all the odds. Now the auto designers will try yet again to come up with some new expensive device to keep drivers like her from taking the wheel… good luck with that one. Maybe prosecute the enabling parents like they prosecute bar owners who serve intoxicated patrons.

        I am not subscribing or following your posts! I do believe that you are a nasty and piece of shit that prays on people and you must not have much of a life! To pray on others unfortunate events…makes me fucking sick! In all reality you are no better then the thief or the child molester or the killer…I cant wait till the day you look yourself in the mirror and say where did my life go and how many lives have I ruined? Not to mention do you have kids? Is this the man that I want my kids to see? Or are they going to see my blog? What would your children, family say? Crazy thing is we as adults in this day in age dont think of that…I do not know anything about you or family…but I saw the article and it pissed me off! You hit a nerve to close to home! And if you are going to talk about people like that, you are a very sad and vile person! You dont even know her or her family! So what the fuck gives you the right or anyone for that matter to past judgment?check your self and your priorities…

    It’s tragic that she died and two other innocent people did as well but this goes far beyond the normal boundaries of a mistake. Seems a lot more like Vehicular Homicide or Vehicular Manslaughter. Candy coating it only tarnishes the memories of the innocent.

    Is it just me or is anyone else getting real sick and tired of people calling 16 and 17 year olds children when they fuck up? They’re fucking teenagers!!! Big difference.
    I particularly started to notice this trend l after that brainwashed angry Swedish TEEN took international stage .
    Anyway these girls were already living fast by the looks of it and probably already had future interviews lined up at nearby strip clubs for when they turned 18..

    LOL 17 and already drives a nazi death machine aka Mercedes? What a spoiled little feral animal. Honestly, anybody who pipes in with statements like “who cares if they were driving suspended, a child died, this is a tragedy” etc deserves a quick ride off this mortal coil, or at least deserves no other benefit of civilized living. No, the REAL tragedy is that every child-rearing mechanism was ignored and this rotten little shit was able to ride dirty after dropping out to “pursue a GED”, whatever the fuck that means. It shouldn’t have happened to anybody BUT HER. Sure, the victims were elderly, but no… nobody else should have been collateral damage.

    Uselessness and ratchet mayhem have no place here. Lanphear won’t be sucking the entire soccer team’s dicks, not working, sleeping till noon, or driving mommy’s Mercedes drunk any longer. So something good came out of this.

    These people made it into their 80’s only to be killed by some drunken drop out slut.

    The best way to make ratchets out of your kids is to be their ‘friend’, and not their parent.

    The real victims are the old people who were killed. Imagine living into your 80s, surviving all the shit that they did (they were born during the Great Depression), raised a family, had grandchildren and maybe great grandchildren, and get snuffed out by some fucking piece of shit scumbag. Anybody want to take bets on what the toxicology results will be on that fucking cunt? My money is on “High As Fuck”. I hate to say I am glad someone died, but I am glad that the cunt will never be able to kill anyone else. And if any of the fuckheads defending her read this: She KILLED two innocent people while driving illegally and you direct your fucking sympathy to that cunt?!?!?! Fuck all of you. Hopefully you get to experience the same horrors in your own miserable fucking lives.

      Kid dropping out of school “to pursue” a GED, kid with a suspended license at 17, kid with a suspended license somehow getting access to a Nazi cruiser, kid hopping on I-95 with pal / chronic run-away, kid driving Nazimobile the WRONG WAY on I-95, kid plowing head on into another car and augering in…

      …I’m sure this mom is in a great deal of pain, and we can all empathize with her. But based on the above, I think it’s not at all controversial to conclude that mom might have fallen a touch short of the June Cleaver model. Perhaps dad wasn’t exactly Ward, either.

        If anyone would like to know the real reason why Abby needed to leave Westerly High School, feel to ask the superintendent. This young lady was not a drop out. I understand that emotions run high in situations like this. My frustrations are boiling over as well. But many people do not know why she needed to find another avenue for her education, which she received a year in advance, by the way. She would have rather had a high school diploma. Instead she needed to leave WHS and she immediately pursued her GED, which she received in a very timely manner. She planned to attend college. She worked two jobs. That Mercedes was bought from money earned in a yard sale and from the two jobs she worked. She was not an entitled teen. She worked hard for what she had. I, too, feel terrible for all involved in the accident, but bashing a teen and her mother is not the answer. If the superintendent does not feel comfortable sharing the true story, I may choose to request a meeting with me requesting he set the story straight with the public.

      I see the results. I can draw conclusions.
      Water is wet, fire is hot and gravity always wins.
      GED, runaway mudblood girlfriend, driving on a suspended license, mom trolling for dates on FB, besties forever, Rhode Island and a face with so much attitude. Yep I could go out on a limb here with a condemnation of parenting skills.

      You stupid fucking cunt. People are judged by the products they create – in this case, a rotten piece of shit who killed two octogenarians while driving with a suspended license and driving the WRONG WAY on the highway. Guarantee she was was fucking stoned or drunk. See, this cunt’s mother set the conditions for this horrific accident by placating poor choices and bad behavior. So yeah, that cunt is a product of poor parenting. Oh, and fuck you!

      We know exactly how she raised her kid (parent is not a fucking verb) because of the way the kid turned out.

      Her offspring was a ratchet, drunk-driving, drop-out, waste of space, menace to society killer.

      So we know the mother was a fucking useless parent.

      Now, off you fuck.

      Responding to ‘Right’ – you have absolutely no idea how this woman parented.

      How true. I had two children raised in essentially the same environment. We escaped an abusive relationship when my children were very young.

      One Of my children was a joy from day one. Excelled in school, college, medical school and parenthood. Gives back to her community and is raising children that I think will do even better.

      The other, believe it or not, was a troublemaker while still in the womb. Seriously. I won’t go into issues prior to 16 y.o. Though there were some.

      First two arrests by 16 – if he wasn’t so arrogant and belligerent to police, they would’ve let him go. Numerous misdemeanors, stupid things, for which I posted bail and paid fines. Provided a place to live. Provided $$. Etc. then the felonies. Continued to provide tens of thousands.

      Now, in his late 30’s, though bragging on FakeBook about his financial success, he is essentially bankrupt and friendless, due to his dishonesty, disloyalty, and generally being an evil person.

      Wanna blame this on me? He got more attention, more support (emotionally and financially) and in every other way, and was raised in the same single-family household as his sister. Don’t you dare say that his contribution or worth as a member of society is completely on me.

      I often think that if it were not for my daughter, I might think the same thing

      In some cases it may be true. Not all..

    Obviously mom knew the daughters license was suspended. But if mom let her take the Mercedes anyways, assuming its moms car, then mom could be to blame also. If I was a family member of the elderly couple I would want to know the answer to that question.

    IF there have been prior wrong-way drivers on that particular piece of road, that’s relevant.
    It may be poorly marked, it may need a “wrong way” sign or a few red reflectors on the guardrails.

    But, bottom line, she wasn’t supposed to be driving!

    And WHY was her license suspended????
