    I am trying to edit my post. My comment should have said, "shouldn't be allowed" sorry everyone.

    I strongly believe that pictures of accidents that kill a person should be allowed to be shown. This picture of the accident that killed Stephen LeBlanc is devastating. The car is demolished, as he must have been. What must his parents be going through if they ran across this picture? As least show a different angle that doesn't show the results of the vehicle in which he was killed. Horrible, horrible choice to print this angle of that accident. His father was a friend of mine and I can only hope his parents don't see this picture. There are other things to consider when covering the news besides getting the picture.....
