A 14-year-old boy who allegedly crashed a stolen car that killed his friend wrote on Facebook that he & # 39; f *** ed up & # 39; used to be.
The teenager, who cannot be mentioned for legal reasons, is accused of having stolen a Mazda SUV and allegedly turned a red light during a drive through Rothwell, north of Brisbane, at 4 p.m. on Wednesday.
Jacob Hopkins, 14, died on the spot and was one of five others in the car, between 10 and 16 years old.
The accused driver remembered Jacob in a message on Facebook and apologized that & # 39; it should end this way & # 39 ;.

& # 39; RIP Jacob, my brother, I can't believe I did this. F ***** up brother I shoulder (sic) stopped by the light, & # 39; said the post.
& # 39; Every time I close my eyes, I see the whole event happening over and over again. I'm sorry it had to end this way, brother, dear, your brother is flying high brown. & # 39;
& # 39; I send my love to family and friends, you can hate me but it won't change anything. & # 39;
The accused driver, from Waterford West, south of Brisbane, was photographed on Friday by making gang signs and eating KFC from his hospital bed at Queensland Children's & Hospital.
Four passengers – girls aged 10, 13, 14 and 16 – have been taken to the hospital with the alleged driver – they are now all in a stable state.
Jacob and the accused driver would have been members of the so-called Northside Gang, known for its separate gang blanket – a single finger cover or near someone's face.

Jacob stated that he was part of the North Side Gang, in the northern suburb of Redcliffe in Brisbane, and posed in countless photos stamped with the name of the group.
In photos & # 39; s he made the same hand movements as the two hospital-bound children.
Friends and family grieved the teenager if & # 39; taken too quickly & # 39; on social media in the hours after his death.
& # 39; I can't believe it's real. Everything you were ready for, you didn't deserve this. Always been a second family to you, we love you and only wanted the best for you, & a good friend said.
Another friend said that Jacob was the & # 39; strongest boy she knew & # 39 ;.
& # 39; Fly in the dream time, forever our memories are now stories. We love you, we will never forget you, & they said.
