ONLY ON 3: Petrolino passenger hurt in crash that kills driver

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- She was one of the passengers in may's alleged huffing and driving crash in Wrightsville Beach earlier this year. Tonight Corine Silverberg is in intensive care in Raleigh after another crash that killed a man.

Police say Randi Petrolino and two friends were huffing dust cleaner while driving over the Wrightsville Beach draw bridge in May. Petrolino blacked out and hit a tree. All three were OK, but one of Petrolino's passengers, Corine Silverberg, was involved in another accident saturday night, and this time she was seriously hurt.

Raleigh Police say the 20-year-old Silverberg was a passenger in Louis Canino's car at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday. They were driving on Louisburg Road near Interstate 540 in Raleigh when police say Canino's car crossed the center line and hit support beams for a road sign.

Canino, 22, died at the scene. Silverberg is in the Neurointensive Care Unit at WakeMed in Raleigh. Another passenger, Ashley Waltman, is listed in serious condition.

Police say Canino was speeding, but it is unclear if alcohol was involved.

According to Wrightsville Beach Police, alcohol and chemical inhalants were factors in the May accident. Petrolino faces her second DWI charge along with seven other crimes in that crash, which add to an already extensive record.

Canino also had a lengthy rap sheet. He was charged with hit and run earlier this month. Last year, he was convicted of a drug charge. He has also been convicted of reckless driving, speeding, breaking and entering, theft and open container.

Police are still investigating Saturday's accident and may perform an autopsy on Canino to see if drugs or alcohol were involved.

thank you

thank you to those who cared enough to show some slight compassion towards Louis.....he was a very dear friend, and a caring person. yes, his choices werent great ones at times, but he was still a loving person, and had a family, and many people are still mourning for their loss...

First of all

Louis Canino was an amazing person, and a close friend of mine. It is seriously sicking to read what some of you post about this tragic accident. Has a majority of you people never made a mistake? Louis did not plan this, yes hes made some poor choices in his past but is having his mugshot up here and listing all of his charges even relevant to the situation?! Dont some of you have anything better to do, then to sit here and talk crap about a person who has recently lost their life?! I understand some of you have there own opinions on the situation but there is obviously a reason behind his mistakes. Dont you think that louis and the two girls know they havent made the best of decisions, and i can assure you that talking crap about them is NOT going to change things...if you want to see an improvement in our local teenagers and dont want this to happen to your children then maybe all of you should try and be a little bit more understanding. You all should have more compasion for these 3 peoples parents and families..There is more to a person then there criminal record and or mistakes. Louis and his family are in my prayers and blessings. R.I.P Louis James Canino <3

AND THE HIT AND RUN... ( FOR

AND THE HIT AND RUN... ( FOR ALL OF YOU "KNOW IT ALLS" THAT THINK YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT) HE HIT A PARKED CAR AS HE WAS PULLING OUT OF A PARKING SPOT AND HANDLED IT WITH THE POLICE RIGHT AFTER AND IT WAS GOING TO GET DROPPED IN COURT! HE WAS PAYING FOR THE SMALL DAMAGES. SO ONCE AGAIN... GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT!

screw all of you that have something to say about louis

**ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE SOMETHING BAD TO SAY ABOUT LOUIS CANINO, YOU BETTER THINK AGAIN. DONT OPEN YOUR BIG MOUTH IF YOU DONT HAVE ANY IDEA WHAT YOUR TALKING ABOUT. DO ANY OF YOU HAVE HEARTS? OBVIOUSLY NOT. LOUIS WAS THE KINDEST PERSON YOU WOULD EVER MEET. HE WOULD GIVE YOU THE SHIRT OFF HIS BACK. HE HAS MADE MISTAKES IN THE PAST, BUT THAT WAS THE PAST, WHEN HE WAS YOUNG AND DUMB, HE HAS MATURED SO MUCH SINCE THEN AND WOULD NEVER EVER DO A DUMB THING LIKE THAT AGAIN. HE LOVED HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS. ALL HE EVER TALKED ABOUT WAS GOING BACK TO SCHOOL, GETTING HIS RECORD CLEARED AND TRYING TO MAKE HIS FAMILY HAPPY AND HIMSELF. HE HAD GOALS. HE HAD PLENTLY OF PEOPLE THAT LOVED HIM AND I FEEL SORRY FOR THE PEOPLE THAT NEVER HAD A CHANCE TO MEET HIM. SO WHAT IF SOMEONE WAS WRITING COMMENTS LIKE THAT ABOUT YOUR CHILD, SIBLING, OR FRIEND? ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT FIRST. IF YOU WANT TO BLAME SOMEONE TAKE A LOOK AT THE ASHLEY GIRL, WHO ONLY ENDED UP WITH A BROKEN LEG AND ARM, SHE WAS THE ONE WITH THE SERIOUS DRUG PROBLEM AND HAS HAD ONE FOR YEARS, EVERYONE KNOWS THAT. IF LOUIS WASNT WITH HER THAT NIGHT THIS WOULD NOT HAVE HAPPENED. LOUIS WAS A GOOD PERSON AND YOU SHOULDNT JUDGE PEOPLE THAT YOU DONT EVEN KNOW! EVERYONE HAS MADE MISTAKES. HE WAS HANGING AROUND THE WRONG PEOPLE ONE NIGHT INSTEAD OF HIS REAL FRIENDS AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED. HE DIDNT KNOW THOSE GIRLS, ASHLEY WAS USING HIM FOR A RIDE AND HE WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR ANYONE AND SHE TOOK ADVANTAGE. MY HEART GOES OUT TO CORYS FAMILY AND IM PRAYING FOR HER. I WOULD HATE TO SEE SOMETHING HAPPEN TO HER TOO. LOUIS WAS A VERY CLOSE FRIEND AND IM NOT BLAMING ANYONE. BUT ITS PATHETIC THAT PEOPLE WOULD ACTULLY WRITE COMMENTS LIKE THAT. YOUR GOING TO BE THE ONES IN HELL.

The past? "He was charged with hit and run earlier this month."

"Last year, he was convicted of a drug charge. He has also been convicted of reckless driving, speeding, breaking and entering, theft and open container."

Uh...yeah. He sounds like a real prince among men. How could the Nobel Committee have overlooked his accomplishments?

are you all kidding?

Absolutely none of you who are bad mouthing Louis even knew him. So dont talk like he is a bad person, has no compassion, or anything along those lines.
I knew Louis. If any of you knew Louis at all, then you would not be talking bad about him.
Just because a young guy made a few bad decisions does not make him a bad person, and you all should really be ashamed for talking like that about louis.
Everyone that knew him would say that he is the "One friend who would give you the shirt off his back", he was the friend that was always there for you. EVERYONE who was his friend says he was a great guy, he had a wonderful personality, and he was a great human being.
A few poor choices he made does not define him as a person.

BTW this one simple post was very one sided and made louis look bad.
First of all they used a MUG shot, which his death and his car crash has nothing to do with any crime or arrest. He also was not even related to the huffing story.

No matter what anyone says, Louis was a good friend and a caring person.

SALT WATER IDIOTS

U GUYS ARE IDIOTS! U DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS YOUNG MAN, AND YEA SO WHAT ABOUT HIS RAP SHEET! HALF OF U PPL POSTING HAVE CHILDREN WITH RAP SHEETS, AND NO ONE HAS PERFECT KIDS! I SEE THIS HAPPEN WITH YOUNG PEOPLE ALL THE TIME, AND U WOULD BE AMAZED WHAT KIDS DO BEHIND YOUR BACK, YOU NEVER KNOW UR KIDS COULD BE INVOLVED NEXT! I WAS ON SCENE OF THIS ACCIDENT AND IT WAS A HORRIBLE SITE! NO MATTER WHAT PPL A MOTHER LOST A CHILD, HAVE SOME FREAKIN RESPECT OF HIS FRIENDS AND FAMILY THAT MAY HAPPEN TO READ THIS. SOMETIMES IT MIGHT BE BETTER TO KEEP YOUR COMMENTS TO YOUR SELF! NOTHING HAS CAME BACK FROM A AUTOPSY, SO I GUESS TILL THEN NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO ASSUME ANYTHING! AS YOU CAN SEE NONE OF THIS CRAP IS ON ANY POSTINGS HERE IN RALEIGH, MUST BE THE SALT WATER MAKING STUPID DISRESPECTFUL IDIOTS!

How sad

I hope this young lady makes it, but she sure needs to choose her friends better. It sounds like they are making some really bad choices and sooner or later they will run out of time.

Done

DRT. And the best part is nobody innocent was hurt.

Why is this news?

Why is this news?

Was Silverberg wearing a

Was Silverberg wearing a seatbelt? It's unlikely that any of these party animals would have had the sense to buckle up.

If silverberg survives this, perhaps she will be a little more careful with her life (and our lives) in the future. Then again, individuals, such as Silverberg and Petrolino never learn from their mistakes. They just go on creating messes for others to clean up.

It's foolish, reckless people like these that make our highways so dangerous.

This may sound cold, but at

This may sound cold, but at least they didn't kill anyone else.

It is completely unnecessary

It is completely unnecessary to list all of Louis' charges. What does it matter? It doesn't change anything that happened and is not only disrespectful but completely irrelevant. I know that Hailey Winslow did not know Louis and has no right to put this. Louis had nothing to do with the previous accident in May and does not need his entire record posted on here so that people can make judgments after his tragic death. Next time please have a little more respect for others, especially a couple days after they die in a horrible car accident.

It's completely relevant

Rachel, you don't see that the info posted in the news is relevant. This knucklehead had a hit and run earlier this month! One of the passengers was involved in another wreck that should have permanently changed her behaviors. NONE of these idiots learned from prior accidents or arrests. It is our good fortune that some of them will never be on our roads again. Maybe if the girl from both accidents recovers, she'll have more humility and judgment. Maybe she won't and society will have one less spoiled, stoner, drunk on its roads. 2 DUis from one of the perpetrators in the drama! Suspended licenses! WHAT KIND OF LOSERS HUFF INHALANTS? You can't deny that ONLY AND IDIOT SPRAYS CLEANER INTO A BAG AND HUFFS IT TO GET HIGH!!!! Then, drives out on public roads. Hard to defend.

Your lack of humanity and

Your lack of humanity and compassion is criminal. Do you honestly think anyone chooses this lifestyle? Clearly something went wrong and this troubled young man paid the ultimate price. Yes, he should never have been on the road, but is it really necessary to call another human being a loser? Do you think this young man had no parents, no family, no loved ones who mourn? Count your blessings and while you are at it, pray for the family this child of God left behind.

Yes Mary....

Yes Mary we do honestly think people choose this lifestyle. Do you really think they were forced to do it? People like you are why they do it, and get away with it so long. You make excuses for their behavior and they keep right on screwing up. Yes something went wrong with this man, and yes he paid the price. It is what it is. Payment due. Payment made.

Yes, I think he chose this

Yes, I think he chose this lifestyle. Just like another poster said, "cause and effect."

Oh Boy

another one of those weasels who pops out of the ground with mindless excusses for stupid behaviour of others.

Have respect for others...especially a few days after they die. D you think he's sitting in the great hereafter reading these posts?

With his record, he may be down below shoveling coal.

The sad thing is the young lady did not learn from her past mistakes; has placed her life in jeapordy; and probably aged her parents who thought she was in Raleigh attending State to get an education.

She made mistakes and failed to learn from them.

No doubt attorneys are circling with glimpses of contingency fees in their eyes. Think differently? Google her name and see how many links lead to law firms.

i'm disappointed in people..who comment as such.

SurfCityTom, you are an embarrassment. Your reference to Mr. Canino as being "down below shoveling coal?" Deplorable. You should be ashamed. Who are you to pass judgement and imply the damnation of this young man? Seriously. Grow up.

Rest in peace, Louis. You will be missed by many.

Judgement?

How is saying HE MAY BE shoveling coal passing judgement? He may be, he may not be. That is not passing judgement. You should be ashamed for passing JUDGEMENT. How do you know he needs to grow up?

And how many people

have to die or be seriously injured before weasels like you take a stand and hold the irresponsible drivers accountable for their lack of thought in driving when they should not?

Hopefully, he had a chance to repent before he passed on so he can be sitting in the Great Hereafter as I stated in the earlier line.

Too bad you can not read an entire post.

Too bad for the injured parties and their families he drove.

Meanwhile google one of the names and see how many attorneys have links. Now there is a reason for shame and embarrassment.

His record is a key element of the REAL story

Here's what the headline SHOULD read:

"Young, beautiful woman with her whole life ahead of her seems determined to destroy it and throw it all away because she keep running with trashy people."

Ms. Winslow didn't have to know Louis, she simply had to report the news. (And does a fine job of it.) Canino's history is a matter of public record.

You're exactly like that guy complaining about WWAY reporting the body on Kure Beach. How DARE they report the news!

P.S. If you want people to respect you, respect the law and their safety.

tragic.

My prayers go out to this young woman, her friend who was also hospitalized, and to Louis' family and friends as they mourn his life cut short. This is a sad story for all involved. I wish people would recognize this.

I would also be remiss not to add my concern about Ms. Winslow's cold, and loose reporting style reflected in this article. She has no right to bring Louis' "rap sheet" into the story unless there is evidence that his previous behavior has, or had, anything to do with the tragedy of saturday night's accident. This article goes beyond the reporting of facts relevant to a story and unfortunately reflects Ms. Winslow's feable attempt to play detective. Ms. Winslow, leave it to the police to put 2 and 2 together. And mr. or mrs. "commonsense...", lighten up, have a heart, and remember that people's lives are more than just story lines. And "trashy people?" Seriously? I pity you.

I have a heart

I also have a brain which you, apparently, lack if you can't see the correlation behind wild, illegal behavior and premature death.

Does the ever-so-accurate term "trashy people" (when speaking of criminals) offend you?

Okay! I can live with that!

Yes, tragic!

Tragically stupid!

It isn't that the reporter doesn't have the right to report on the rap sheet. She researched the incident and REPORTED what she Found. Her job isn't to be the PR representative for the people who were involved. She reported that there was ongoing trouble with the people involved. There is no breach of professional ethics in this report. It isn't even a matter of bad taste. There WAS previous behavior that had something to do with the accident.

Remember, the driver was already in trouble for a hit and run? So, while he wasn't convicted, it had been less than a month from that charge to this incident. How his life ended goes a long way to show how his actions and his fate were related. It was a long rap sheet. He died in a way that reflected things he had been doing wrong. It would be no less relevant if he had died being shot as an intruder. Because he has a history of breaking and entering too. The rap sheet doesn't tell you if he loved his mother or volunteered at the soup kitchen. It tells you about some of what was wrong with him. It wasn't meant as his obituary. The reporter wasn't making it his obituary. It was a report on how he died and what may have lead up to it. Maybe he was an alter boy. That wouldn't seem relevant to the story.

It also was noteworthy that the other kids had been in similar trouble recently. It wasn't a mean set of lies. It was an unfortunate set of truths. Maybe, rather than wringing your hands and praying for sanctification, it might be time to look honestly at how messed up these people are/were. All the people involved hadn't learned from past mistakes. It could have just as easily involved you or your loved ones. Except you didn't make choices to behave as they did.

re: "...behavior had something to do with the accident..."

As Ms. Winslow notes, an autopsy had, or perhaps still, has yet to be performed. Linking Canino's past behavior to the fatal car accident is, while convenient, still, at this point, speculation. I do believe such speculation is in bad taste.

No right to bring up the rap sheet?

...so you think that the driver's record, with a charge LESS THAN 3 WEEKS ago for hit and run, isn't relevant? I would say it's totally germane. There is a clear pattern of behaviors. Why this is news is because this was a guy who was bent on destruction. Moreover, his passengers were caught up in extremely self destructive behaviors. This wasn't an accident. Accidents happen when everyone involved is doing what they are supposed to be doing. This was an inevitable result of a litany of poor behaviors. Now a man is dead. One person may still be dead. Another, potentially maimed. This is news because this is story that needs to be told. If people don't take seriously the consequences of their actions, it can get worse. Maybe the law won't catch them, but a road sign or an overdose could make an impact.

It is harsh to call the dead man trashy. What, in that long list of charges on his record, shows him to be a great guy? I wouldn't want him driving my daughter around. I wouldn't trust him to manage my cash register. What in that list of misdeeds tells you he had a bright future? We can only hope that he was more careful with his sperm than he was with his driving.

Too hot

Hey Carl where are you? What's the matter nothing to say? Maybe you realize you or your kids are not as perfect as you thought! Why don't you tell us your full name so we can google your record! maybe that's the problem. Your the real loser.

Maybe

As I have said in the past, if I ever do something stupid enough to get my name posted in the news, google away. Until then you may assume either I follow the law or just don't get caught. Take your pick, I know the correct answer.

Ever been out to dinner had

Ever been out to dinner had had two drinks? I'm thinking "never got caught". Better be careful Carl, that dwi could be just around the corner.
