I was one of the grooms man, the man just married did not walk away unscaved, he has some knee problems, but all in all he should be dead after a crash like that, the man driving might not live, it just goes to show how fast things can chang in life...

Hi, My name is Janice. I am Darryl's cousin. I live in San Mateo. His mom called my mom yesterday morning to tell her about the accident, but she was so upset we didn't get any details. Thank you so much. This posting will not let me give my cell phone number. Here is my email address instead tjhornbuckle@sbcglobal.net. Please let me know how I can get in touch with Shane. My sister and I are worried sick. He is like a brother to us. Thank you sooooo very much for responding.

Hi, this is Janice, Darryl's cousin. We have not heard anymore from the family. We are waiting for Darryl's mom to call mine. I did get an email from one of the groomsmen and he said things do not look good. There appears to be brain trama. We can only pray and hope that he will pull through this. Thanks for your concern. Do you know if he was there with anyone else from his family. I don't want to call his son Shane because I heard he is being bombarded by phone calls so I will wait to hear from my aunt.

Hi my name is Vicky Dugan and Darryl and I recently ended a long term relationship/engagement. I wanted to send my thoughts and prayers to him and hope you may relay them to him that I am so sorry this happened to him. Life is precious and I pray he comes out of this and relizes this too. To his family please know that my heart and prayers are with all of you and would appreciate you updating me if you can. My email is vickyd@californialab.com. I just found out about his accident and I am horrified at thought of him not making it. God bless you darryl and to all of your family too! My thoughts and prayers are with all of you!

Just received a message from Darryls Daughter that Darryl had a Cat Scan today and things were looking good. As of yesterday he was responding to voices and moving his body a little but still had not opened his eyes. Keep sending him your prayers!

I met Darryl recently, he's a friend of my brother's, and have found him to be a very dear man. He has a big heart and is very generous. I found out about the accident yesterday and have been praying for him since. My heart goes out to all of you who are close to him. I live in Alaska and have no way of knowing of his progress except through family comments here. Thank you for updating his progress. God be with you all.

I spoke to Janelle Fontana, Darryls daughter again just now and Darryl has been awake but just not speaking. They will speak to the doctors later today and have more information. He has been resting most of today. Please keep your prayers going for him and his family. They are hopeful that he will recover it will just be a long process. I will update as I have information to provide. I know that his family appreciates everyones thoughts and prayers!

I heard from a family member today that the neuro surgeon is very optomistic about Darryl's condition. He should be out of intensive care in the next couple of days and that is a very good thing. Of course, they won't know much until he wakes up and they are weaning him off the meds so he can do that. Hopefully, we will have more good news soon. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers. I will pass this on to his mom and family when I talk to her.

Best of luck to you Darryl! We have never met, but I was the first on the scene of the accident and the one who called 911. The night of the accident it didn't look as though you would survive, but miracles happen. Good luck and have a speedy recovery.
