    I don’t understand HOW someone could drive away after hitting another car, forcing it off the road whether or not it was intentional. What is wrong with him? This poor family. I was there just after the accident and it was horrible, I felt so bad for their pain physical and emotional. I hope he is caught soon. Although it is sad that no one had seat belts on, who can say whether it would have helped or created more of a problem. Pray for this family. The little boy and the lady were so frightened. I hope they are ok. We were on our way home to Ohio when we stopped to help.

      Thanks so much for stopping to help it proves there are still good people in the world and even though I was not there this helps me. I am Cindys sister in law and that was a very sad day for us. Cindy is improving daily but still has a long way to go. Thanks for helping them.

  2. I’m sorry, but anyone who thinks “seatbelts may cause more of a problem” are exactly the kind of people who get ejected from their cars when they get in an accident. An unfathomable amount of people have been saved by seatbelts and how many do you hear of that die because of it? 1 in a million? Just put the damn thing on.

      I only saw the car heading from the middle lane, I think, before it crashed. As I drove by I saw the little boy running and several other cars stopping. I could not stop because I was in the left lane and did not want to cause more accidents. I, too, was driving back to Ohio. If I had seen who caused the accident, I would certainly give information to catch the person. I felt so horrible for what I had seen and I prayed that everyone would be ok. I still cannot stop thinking about this. I send my thoughts and prayers to the family. I am so sorry!

      I am so sorry that one idiot can cause so much grief and pain. I hope Zachary is ok and the other lady, that I assume was also a relative. I know for a fact that seat belts, though intended to save lives, DO NOT always! I am sure the trooper was correct in what he said. I am so sorry that your mom was fatally injured due to the poor judgment and actions of one person. I hope he is man enough to turn himself in and deal with the consequences of his actions. We are praying for your family. I know it is a difficult time for you all

    To the family: My son Matthew played with Zach about month or so ago over at Heidi’s, my wife and I were there, too. I realize most of you don’t know me or my family at all, except J and his son Zach, but nevertheless, our hearts and thoughts are with you. I hope they catch this person and make him reflect upon the consequences to others of his actions, for example what this 8 year old boy had to experience. And besides that bring this animal to justice. In the meantime, for what it’s worth, we are sorry for your loss and this gross injustice, we hope you can all find some kind of peace.

    i know the family that lost the lady in the car accident…. i know what they mean by when they say if they was wearing there seatbelt ot would have killed them. the same thing happened to my brother when he was 12.. but as far as the accident goes my sympthy goes out to my best friend and her husbands family as he had lost his grandma in this wreck. it was also his mom that is in the hospital that is not doing to good. she has to go through major surgery’s and there not even sure if she will ever walk again… also she will be in the hospital for months to come for recovery…. so yes i hope and pray they find the bastard that done this and let justice be served!!!!!!! hopefully he won’t be on the road for long and if he is well let me say he doesn’t want to know how i feel….. i hate people like them that thinks they can kill someone and not have to pay for what they have done!!!!!!

    We, too, saw this accident but just seconds after it happened. We were driving to Charlotte after a cruise. I’m very sorry this happened. Even if they never find the idiot who did this, he will never live in peace and will one day pay the price.
