My Prayers, for both families who lost their loved ones. No one honestly knows what happened. Those who assume being on the phone, Yet that may not have been the issue to what happened. It could have been anything, for such a horrible situation to end up taking two lives. It’s just sad to hear families’ hearts are shattered.

Christal Eddins posted,

I hate that they. So many lives have been lost. I’m hoping with the widening of it, these accidents will decrease. My condolences to both families for their loss
