Is it Chris that has the brothers Merritt: Daryl, Don, and Tony? They are ALL fine wonderful men and I pray,(really- no matter which Chris it is) that he is not injured badly. I pray for all involved in the wreck.

I have a friend that is asking for any details available about this accident. She lives out of state and the guy that perished in this accident, Jerry Highsmith, is her cousin. I found this forum by searching for news in Douglas, GA. Anything that you could provide by way of news for her would be greatly appreciated. I did link her to this forum so she may come post for herself as well.

Thank you and this is so sad :(

Ivy, tell your friend to check the WALB website tomorrow. www.walb.com

They had the story on the 11:00 pm news tonight, but did not update their website. It should be updated tomorrow with the story on it. My sympathy to your friend and her family.

Yes, her name is Savannah, and she did pass away today. Jerry is my cousin; our mothers are sisters, but we live up in Pennsylvania.
Can you post a link to the other forum you mentioned? I'd like to read that too.

I talked to Trent's parents today. He should be ok. They had him transferred to Savannah, since that is closer to home. He doesn't remember anything and they aren't telling him anything yet.
