    Car crash kills high school sweethearts

    A young couple from Old Bridge who met in high school and dreamed of someday marrying were killed together late Friday when they were driving home from a friend's house and collided with another vehicle, police said.

    John Razillard, 19, was driving Jennifer Dooley, 20, home in his father's car at about 11:50 p.m. when they were struck by a sport utility vehicle while turning left, Old Bridge Police Lt. George Stader said.

    Authorities believe Razillard either ran a stop sign or failed to check for oncoming traffic, Stader said.

    Razillard, a mechanic, was pronounced dead at the scene. Dooley, a nanny and aspiring writer, was taken to Raritan Bay Medical Center in Old Bridge, where she later died.

    The couple had dated for five years after meeting at Old Bridge High School. There was no formal engagement, but they planned to eventually marry, Razillard's mother said.

    "They were just so crazy in love," said Melissa Hessel, 19, one of the couple's friends.

    The night of the crash, Dooley and several girlfriends gathered to try on makeup and eat pizza at a house in the Cliffwood Beach sec tion of Old Bridge, a sprawling working-class township of about 60,500 in Middlesex County.

    Razillard was eager to see Doo ley and sent her text messages, urging her to call it a night,

    "He had worked all day and missed her," Hessel said.

    Dooley relented shortly after 11 p.m. and told her boyfriend she was ready to go. He borrowed his father's Chrysler 300 and told his mother good-bye.

    You have to be up at 7 a.m. for work," Debra Razillard, his mother, recalled saying.

    Razillard told his mother not to worry, saying he'd be home in an hour, she said.

    He arrived to pick up Dooley at 11:20 p.m., and they headed toward her house on Spring Valley Road, about 10 miles away.

    They were westbound on Disbrow Road at 11:50 p.m. when Ra zillard turned onto Amboy Road and collided with a GMC Jimmy driven by Cody Daily, 17, also of Old Bridge, police said.

    Daily suffered a broken leg and was treated and released from Raritan Bay Medical Center.

    Razillard lived at the end of a cul-de-sac on Furman Boulevard, in the Cliffwood Beach section of Old Bridge.

    He was the older of two boys. His mother recalled him as a duti ful son who regularly took his 14-year-old brother, Michael, fishing. "He was also such a wonderful son," she said.

    Razillard, who had been in the ROTC at Old Bridge High School, had long wanted to be a mechanic and in October completed a 13-month automotive training program in Tennessee.

    He started working two weeks ago at Tom's Ford in Keyport, his mother said.

    Dooley lived with her older brother, Jason, and his family, on Spring Valley Road. She took care of her two young nephews. Her mother died when she was 11, and her father lives in Tennessee.

    "Jenn talked to her dad every day, faithfully," said Patty Dooley, her sister-in-law. "She never skipped a beat. She did everything for my kids."

    Dooley planned to take night classes at Middlesex County Community College in September. She loved taking photographs, writing and singing in the car with the windows rolled down.

    But most of all, friends said, she loved Razillard.

    "They were inseparable," Hessel said.

    "They were inseparable," Hessel said.

    Was that before or after the accident.

    God people are boring.

    I prefer Dazillard.

    I think Rosdower needed to check this out:

    Though the first story in this anthology might be a bit more applicable.
