      Does anyone know if the car was faulty? Was he being chased? Always wonder if they investigate these things.

  3. I was one of the first to stop and I will never forget that day. I saw the whole thing, He passed me then all of sudden ran right of the road right before he crashed into the pole. We pulled over to help him, but there no way of getting to the car. There where flames already coming from the back and you couldn’t get to it. It was a pretty bad. But I want His family and friends to know I know he DID NOT suffer and If there was ANYTHING that we could’ve done, we would have. I pray everyday for him and his family to find peace. It’s something I will never forget or hope to ever have to see again… God Bless his family and please let them know how sorry I am.

  4. I was getting off 95 at 10th and saw the car on the pole. I took a picture of it and posted it to my Facebook stating that I am praying for whoever was in that car would be ok. It had me in tears even though I didn’t know the people in it. My purpose of posting on Facebook was in the hopes that when everyone read it they would say a little prayer for them. It’s sad what happens to people but we only have one choice after someone is gone and that is to pray for the people left behind and move on. Pray for the family still here……I know my prayers are with the people lrft behind due to this tragedy.
