There is a lesson to be learned from this awful situation from Stafford Township.

Tuesday, 24-year-old Jeydon Lowe of Barnegat was charged with aggravated manslaughter in the death of his friend, 24-year-old Robert Parlin of Little Egg Harbor Township.

Police say Parlin, a passenger, died when Lowe lost control of his car while driving under the influence back in March and struck a tree while trying to make a sharp turn.

Now, Lowe is in jail while facing charges that will send him to prison for years. His friend is dead.

Awful, tragic, stupid. We should all learn a lesson.
