This person got on I-65 in White House. He/She was so drunk, they could not even drive down the on-ramp. Scared me to death...swerving from one side of freeway to the other, into the median and right into other cars if they did not leave the road to avoid him/her. I sped up to pass the driver to be sure there were no kids in the car but the windows were tinted too dark to see anything...couldn't even see the driver. I knew this driver was going to have a very bad wreck and I'm surprised it was not fatal, but glad it wasn't.

He passed away. My prayers go out to the family. Glad no one else was involved.

he wasn't drunk stupid idiot. He had a medical problem and passes out. Learn your stuff before you post it where everybody can read it.

He wasn't drunk and actually his windows were not tinted that dark. You could easily see through his tint. I do thank you for posting this information of the swerving. It does help in pointing in the right direction of some answers. He wasn't drunk and there was a medical condition that occured. It would be nice if people would keep in min for future reference there are several medical conditions that manifest themself in the same way as under the influence; so please do not ever hesitate to pick up that phone and call the authorities. You may save someone's life. Of course the ultimate call is God's but it wouldn't hurt to try.

How inconsiderate that you do not even take the time to find out the facts about this accident. The windows were not that dark, you could see through them. I have been in the car and seen the car numerous times. If you were so concerned, why did you not contact authorities? The facts are that this was a medical condition. Also, if you would have taken the time to find out the facts, you would have known that he did in fact pass away as a result of this accident. His precious daughters lost their father that horrible day. In the future, please be considerate of the family that lost their loved one and find out the facts before you post things that are not true. I pray that you know the Lord as this man did and I also pray that his daughters never see your post that is false.

Apparently Karen, hasn't bothered to read/respond to replies to her inconsiderate, unthoughtful, post regarding the accident that took a wonderful Christian FATHER away from his family, friends, and most of all this children. This is the ONLY report of other cars having to leave the road to avoid him. However, if that is a true statement (and it could very well be due to the MEDICAL CONDITION), this KNOW IT ALL IDIOT, should have dialed 911 to report irratic driving, and then put tape on her BIG FAT STUPID MOUTH. Hopefully his death at least taught this person to stop talking and take proper cautions in the future.

I'm curious as to what reason a person with a medical condition that would cause them to drive like that is doing behind the wheel in the first place. My heart goes out to his friends and family but luckily he didn't take anyone else with him.

If you are so curious as to why he was driving with a medical condition is because they weren't sure what was wrong at the time. My uncle did not know he was going to pass out and die while driving to work like he did every other Friday morning. Had he known that he would not have gotten in that car, and put anyone at risk.

I'm so sorry for your quick judging personality. You may have saved yourself from looking like a total ass had you taken the time to find out real facts. It makes me sick to think that had you just taken the two seconds to call authorites you could have possibly saved my Uncles life. He was a great man and the only father figure I have ever had. I lost him that afternoon, and I hope you never forget that you could have saved his life. However, due to your judgmental personality you didn't even give it a second thought. My family lives with the hurt of his loss every minute of everyday. I hope you never forget that, and next time you will do the right thing.

SUP, I see that you have no understanding of the reason a person would get in a car and drive under these conditions. It is quite apparently there was no condition when he started driving but it happened during the driving. I am very thankful you have not had to lay awake for 46 nights now not only with your own pain of missing that person so badly and with a million questions but also listening for the cries and moans of the children left behind with those same pains and questions. Obviously, you have not been exposed to medical needs at all; for this I am again thankful as you should be also. God has granted you a very sheltered and blessed life. Some medical conditions cause a person not to think clearly or happen in an instant, sometimes while a person is driving, in the middle of a golf course, or even at their desk. People have heart attacks, seizures, any number of things happen in the midst of these events. I wish not only to tame your curiousity but also to ease the pain of my baby girls that I had the answers. However, it is not in my hands to hold the answers at this time. I can only pray for the strength and love of God to guide us through each and every second. Please instead of letting your curiousity run you I hope you will go home and love your family and friends as if there were no tomorrow. As the man we are writing about always told us "we are not promised tomorrow so you better make the most of today". God Bless You!!

It has been nine months since this tragic accident. Our hearts still ache with the pain of this loss. I know GOD is the master of all things and He does not make mistakes, but there are times I have questioned whether or not this was a mistake. I am thankful that I serve a risen Savior that has and will continue to see us through each day. If you have not taken the time to tell your loved ones how much you love them and how much they mean to you......please take the time to do so. You never know what tomorrow may bring. I know Kevin is rejoicing with our Heavenly Father and his eartly father today and for that I am thankful. It is still so hard to beleive that he is not here. I pray the brokeness I see in my families eyes and Kevin's families eyes will be healed in time. To Karen and Sup - I pray that you and your family never have to experience this brokeness and you never have to try to answer the questions my nieces and dauther have asked over the last nine months.

AFJ, may God's healing be felt by all those affected by this loss. I am so sorry for the continued pain, but it is good to see this forum used for something as meaningful as your message. People are so quick to judge these days, so quick to take sides, regardless of the harm they cause. They jump in and use the power of their voice to further harm or condemn without any knowledge of the true facts of things. It happens over and over, here, and in so many other ways. The only way to strike any kind of balance over such cowardly and destructive conduct is to support the hurting, lift up the truth, and trust that God is in control. Thank you for the reminder to love with openness and wholeness. I will hold my family closer today because of your message.

Even more reasons to make sure you have a current will and life insurance since no one knows what will happen 12 hours from right now...
My condolences for your loss.

More importantly than the will and life insurance because money will never ease the loss make sure you never leave with out telling your loved ones you love them. Never take it for granted they know for once you're gone is when they will cherish the most that last time they got to hear those three powerful words.
