Hope everyone will be safe. My husbands mom called from Ohio and the Tennessee Family that died on 75 was the children of one of her friends. The parents died and kids are critical. Some guy leaving a party drunk with his own kid in the car did a U banger on interstate striking the Tennessee family, killed himself and child is was I heard on talk radio. Please be responsible, we love our children.
Why do you ALWAYS do this!!! You try to derail this thread (AS USUAL) about an accident that had NOTHING to do with the accident this thread's about. WHY

The accident you're referring too was on 75 .. THIS thread is about the accident near BIG O'S which is NO WHERE NEAR 75.

We pray for the killed and hurt of BOTH accidents, but damn... start a SEPARATE thread about the accident YOU'RE talking about that was on 75 instead of coming on here and interrupting/derailing THIS one about it. Or did you even bother to notice the THREAD TITLE, or COULD you even...(yeah... more then likely COULDN"T.. wonder why - NOT)

For ONCE dammit, DON'T try to make a thread about what YOU have to say about something TOTALLY unrelated to the thread's topic damn it ... Pay attention and have respect for the killed and injured of the accident THIS thread IS about or just stay the hell off it!! Man it's Christmas (yeah you're pagan but does that HAVE to mean you can't RESPECT that it's CHRISTMAS for the people that it's turned nightmare enough pertaining to THIS accident that THIS thread was SPECIFICALLY about???

IOW: How about you gift to everyone concerned that you keep YOUR MAJOR MALFUNCTION to yourself, plz, TY.
Grrrr PLEASE

prayers to all those involved
As follows (copied and pasted from that link):

LAFOLLETTE (WATE)- Three people died in a two-vehicle car wreck on Monday night in Campbell County, according to the Tennessee Highway Patrol.

THP troopers said Joshua Peavley, 19, of LaFollette, was driving his truck southbound on Highway 63 near Angel Lane when he crossed the center line and hit a car driving northbound.

The truck caught on fire, and Peavley was partially ejected from the vehicle. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

In the other vehicle, two people died, and three others were injured.

The car driver, Gary Mefford, 59, of Jacksboro, and the passenger Brenda Mefford, 63, of Jacksboro, both died. They were not wearing their seat belts.

The three family members in the back seat-- an adult, a teenager and a child-- were transported to UT Medical Center.

Weather is not believed to be a factor in the crash.

Tests for drugs and alcohol were ordered as standard procedure.

Our family's heartfelt sympathy and condolences for the Peavley and Mefford families. We dread finding out who may be the teenager that was in the backseat of the Mefford vehicle... my daughter's were already crying their hearts out over hearing this was about Josh as they went to school with him, and were friends at one time although lost touch on social level a couple years ago, and are trying to brace themselves that whomever the teen in the backseat was might would be a friend of theirs also....

So very very sorry for both families and all concerned... and, on Christmas Eve. Especially heartbreaking... so UNECESSARY.. such NEEDLESS harm and fatalities!

I SO pray it isn't discovered drugs/alcohol was involved. PLZ.

RIP Josh, and Mr. & Mrs. Mefford. Prayers for ALL.

The kid lived thanks to two brave teens but the driver and passenger passed. Also the driver of the truck passed. The car lost the lives of Philip and Brenda mefford. The child is my niece Allie Conley. Josh ivey a boy in the car with her put himself around her saving her life. He is in bad shape. My prayers go out to his family. That boy is a hero. He saved a 5 yr old girls life by selflessly risking his safety to protect her. If I can assist his family in any way please let me know. Josh is now my hero he is her guardian angel. Thank you

Okay... the driver of the truck that had passed is Josh Peavely.

The article says "an adult - a teen - and a child" were in the backseat of the Mefford car.

Okay, so the child is Allie Conley (per you) and she's 5 ... but you say the two in the backseat with her were Josh Ivey (teen - assuming)... but, the other was not an adult as the article says??? Or maybe 'adult' but is 18 or 19 meaning "teen", but of legal (on some levels) adult age?

Or, what...???

A bit confusing.

SO GLAD to hear the little girl was made safe ... PRAYERS for Josh Ivey to recover! What of the other teen (adult?)= Who, and how, is he/her??

I can't sleep. Usually it's like this every Christmas Eve because I feel like a kid excited to see my kids get up excited Christmas morning... not the same case, so much, tonight. I am excited for them, at the same time NOW totally feeling stressed and depressed for these families ... MASSIVE headache and I can't keep from checking on them every hour (weird I know) since having read about this accident on here. My oldest daughter drives and it was exactly why I forbade her to drive today/night. Christmas 'party goers', wet roads, fog..etc. She was a little upset with me for a bit... and I felt bad because of course she wanted to visit friends and share Christmas spirit, but I just couldn't let her go out there. I felt so guilty... maybe TOO overprotective, and stressing about it internally.... and that was just IMAGINING the worst.. the worst that's become all too REAL for the Mefford and Peavley families.

I have a sick headache.

Signing off to go into her room and crawl into bed with her which I haven't done in like 10 yrs.

Omg... RIP Josh P., and the Mefford couple. Prayers for Josh I., whomever else the other teen/adult is, and their families, and for the little girl that no doubt is alive but traumatized by this, and her family.

G'nite.

What is it about Hwy 63? Seems so many head on crashes and its rather straight and flat compared to most other roads.

I have said that for 20 years, never seen a highway so prone to head-on crashes.
