Bowie man dies in crash

By Keith L. Alexander

A 25-year-old Bowie man was killed Saturday morning when he lost control of the sports utility vehicle he was driving.

Prince George's County police are investigating a fatal crash that killed Michael Nell Casey, 25, of the 13500 block of Ivey Way in Bowie. Police say Casey was driving a 2005 Dodge SRT Westbound in the 7000 block of Racetrack Road in Bowie around
2:10 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle, struck a curb and overturned and then struck a tree.

Casey was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A female passenger in the vehicle was also taken to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Police said they were looking as to whether speed or slick-road conditions contributed to the accident.

So sad.
This guy had two drug arrests and a SERIOUS past speeding issue.

What does that have to do with this accident? Do you have any information concerning THIS accident? If not then you don't really have much to contribute.

Past screwups are a pretty good predictor of what happened here don't you think?

Eteck - have some freaking respect for the family and friends who KNEW this person. A person died here, a good person...no need to have comments like that and disrespect him and his family. Think before posting again and get some respect for those who just lost someone, some respect for a mother who just lost her son a week before Christmas.

I am requesting that the entire posted comment of Eteck be considered an inappropriate comment and unworthy of the right to comment on this tragedy. Shame on you Washington Post to allow this sub-human person a voice. Michael Casey could have been any one of us. His friends and family are heart broken and need good and decent people supporting them...not some reckless jerk without a heart speaking untruths about someone unable to set the record straight. To the family of Michael, please know you are in our hearts and we will pray for God to comfort you in your grief and sorrow.

I couldn't agree more Gkbg, thank you! What a disgrace that person is to say those comments.

Etek- you talk about past screwups being a good predictor, well your comments are a good predictor of how much of a screwup you make yourself out to be! Have some respect for those that have lost a loved one and keep your negative comments to yourself! How about I add some of your past history, true or not? RIP Mike and our prayers and thoughts are with his family and friends. Do your job Washington Post and screen these inappropriate comments!!

Reject, oops I mean Etek keep your idiotic comments off this site.

RIP! So sorry for your loss of such a young person. That road is absolutely horrible to drive. I really think is the design of the road that caused this accident. Yet another taken too soon! You will be badly missed until your friends & family join you once again one day.

I am an acquaintance of Mike over the years. He was guy with a good heart regardless of Etek's comments. I know he was a great friend to the ones he had around him.

Etek, your comments are not welcome.

Etek- I don't know you (because you were "brave" enough to leave a comment but not to leave your name) but I have to assume that you were slighted in some way by Mr. Casey. Hopefully his friends can look at your immature, reckless comment and have a chuckle. They can just imagine what a loser you must be to hold this much hate in your heart for someone who is no longer with us. Did he dump you or make your girlfriend fall in love? Did you live in shadows? When you live a life as full as it appears this man did you are bound to step on some toes. When you are 20-you are bound to make some mistakes. RIP- And to his friends & family, this chump is still jealous of your friend!

I know Michael Casey was well loved by his family and friends. His facebook page is full of people that loved him and have expressed unbelievable sorrow at their loss. Those same people gathered yesterday to support his family, who has endured pain no one should ever have to experience. I think it's time to stop giving Etek anymore of our time. One day, down the road he, or she, WILL suffer a loss that causes incredible pain. It could be a mother, father, sister, brother, a wife, a husband, or God forbid, a child. I am hoping that Etek, by that time, will be grown up enough to remember the comments made at such a heart wrenching time for those that love Michael and feel remorse for adding to this family's grief. Keep in mind, there is a beautiful girl who was seriouly injured physically and emotionally and will continue to need our support as well. She certainly doesn't need to see negative comments as she recovers. She is grieving for the loss of her friend so I wish the Post would do the right thing and reconsider removing Etek's comments.

"Cpl. Larry Johnson, a county police spokesman, could not provide further details about the investigation Sunday except to say speed and "impaired sobriety" were now considered prime factors in the crash rather than road conditions."

There you have it, drunk and speeding. Nominate the guy for a Darwin award.

clevelandsteamer...you're a fool. A cruel heartless ignorant fool. You were NOT with these kids last Friday night. Don't believe everything you read. I will pray for you as you obviously have no soul.

I guess the toxicology report will settle this once and for all, won't it? I will be waiting for your apology if it proves I'm right.

Stop idolizing and romaticizing some guy who showed no respect for and endangered others by drinking, speeding and driving. Innocent people could have been killed by this thoughtless yahoo.

The only one who should be making an apology is you. To Michael Casey's family who buried him on Tuesday. Does it make you feel good to make comments that cause a family additional pain? The "some guy and thoughtless yahoo" you feel compelled to speak of was a son and brother to a wonderful family. This boy is gone and the only people left are the ones that loved him. Your words are only hurting them. THAT makes you a thoughtless yahoo. Tell me, what is your purpose to post such a mean thing. No one is idolizing and romanticizing Mike. We have compassion for his family. What happened in your heart to cause you to post something so hateful that serves no purpose but to hurt someone? Whatever it was, I hope you can work through it to be a better person. Comments like yours serve absolutely no purpose. Get some counseling, for everyone's sake.

My comments do serve a purpose. You are in denial. Drunk drivers are a major problem. The final report will most certainly reveal that this guy was a menace to society and endanged the lives of innocent people.

The family and friends should channel their energy into something useful. Start by taking all of the money wasted on that roadside memorial and donate it to M.A.D.D. Admit this guy did something wrong and help improve society so they can learn from his mistake.

That reminds me, I need to call the city to get rid of that eyesore.

To clevelandsteamer.....I feel very sorry for you. You have missed the point completely. It's about compassion for the family. You will be in my prayers to soften your heart.
