profound sorrow that I announce the passing of my close personal

vehicle. The 'Jaws of Life' was used to extract Vlad from his car, but

Weather, speed and tires to blame in Vlad's death
More details have emerged surrounding the untimely death of our
friend, Vladik Shibanov.

In the late hours of October 20, 2009, Vladik and a group of school
friends met for a late night get together. Around 10:50pm local time,
Vladik and a school friend identified only as a 'champion go-cart
racer' from Alushta broke away from the group to head home. Vladik,
being the generous kid he was, offered a ride to his friend in his new
car - a black 2008 Mitsubishi Outlander purchased in September of this
year. Vlad loved his new car and was proud to show it off (pictured
left). Vlad also loved speed. As the rain poured down, and visibility
decreased because of fog, Vlad's speed increased. The vehicle's tires,
designed for sparse recreational use only, already worn down from the
rough Crimean terrain were to be replaced a week prior. What little
tread was left was not enough to keep Vlad on the road at the speed he
was travelling. Vlad lost control, hitting a concrete divider. He died
instantly. MVD officials say speed, weather and poor tires were the
ultimate cause of the accident. Alcohol was not a factor.

In a cruel twist of fate, his friend never lost consciousness during
the entire ordeal. As emergency personnel worked for nearly an hour to
cut Vlad from the car, his friend not only suffered from physical pain
but the pain of seeing Vlad laying beside him. Vlad's friend remains
in critical but stable condition suffering from spinal, chest and head
injuries. He is expected to pull through.

Born into a humbled home, Vladik's circle of friends included the rich
and elite of Crimea. But he never accepted handouts from his wealthy
friends. Vlad carried his weight, and while his mates got weekly
allowances from their parents, Vlad worked to keep up a lifestyle he
so adored.

Vlad leaves behind Mummy, Daddy and his baby Sister. He also leaves
behind thousands of friends all over the world.

As his family and friends prepare for a private burial on Saturday
October 24, Vlad's extended family and friends around the world begin
40 days of mourning in honor of the boy many of them haven't met.
Clearly evident is Vlad's popularity from the comments posted here.
