Before you post anything onto a public site, please make sure you have all your fact together. If not, you will display Pure ignorance. For you to simply apply that Mr. Wells was at fault because of the type of car he drives is simply Injudicious. This is why they bring in a reconstruction team, so decisions such as these can be made. Not by people such as yourself. The decision has not been made as to who was at fault. With that being said, It is truly sad that a life was lost in this situation. This should have been your initial thought and opening line, you were praying for the families strength doing this difficult time but, somehow you rather give your opinion on hot rod cars vs. asking God to comfort the family. My recommendation for you is to think about every time you have gotten into your car and pass someone or switch lanes on the highway. Every single time in a split second that could have been you in an accident…it is only by the Grace of God it was n't you. So, before you cast judgment upon ours because of the type of car that is been driven. Search your own self because at the end of the day, the shoe could’ve been on the other foot. I will pray to God that he provides you with more of an open mind. And if the analysis comes back that it was Mr. Wells fault you should pray for him as well.

We saw a accident this morning Sunday Nov, 13, 2011 near a rest stop in Albemarle were a car was left in left ( i almost hit it so must have just happened) and appeared to be another vechicle because people were looking for something in woods. It looked like a deer had been hit and there were items beyond small car like jumper cables and car ramps. This accident listed above sounds like same one but it wasnt Friday night it happened very early morning of Sunday 11-13-11 . Can anyone clear this up , thanks so much . God Bless

I travel 64 to work 5 days a week and I can tell you that traffic can be flying one second and come to a dead stop the next! I pray for the familys of ALL that were involved...Life can change in an instant...no one sets out to cause I death or injury, thats why they are called accidents.

Larry and Bo (D.J. Taylor) were actually both wearing seat belts, The State police assumed they were not wearing seal belts, Larry always wore a seat belt and always would tell whoever rode with him to put their seat belt on before he drove. Maybe the article could explain how a 25 year old driver coming off an on ramp ended up hitting a vehicle that was in the far left lane.

Larry was a wonderful man who was loved and respected by many. He had a heartwarming smile and never had a bad thing to say about anyone unless you really pissed him off which took a lot. Bo is a Great guy as well. I have been in the lives of both of these man for a long time. Every hunting season they would both spend all of their extra time in the woods hunting deer.
As for the seat belt thing Larry always wore his seat belt and made others that rode with him wear it as well. No matter what happened the Taylor family is mourning the loss of a wonderful man... he was not only a husband and father but he was also their best friend.
As for the guy who caused the accident he will have to live everyday if his life that he robbed an innocent man of his life and caused his family a great deal of pain. Who cares what the reasoning is/was a life was taken way to soon. Rest in peace Larry... We love you!

Larry Taylor was as kindhearted of a man anyone will ever meet. I had the pleasure of bowling with Larry for over ten years and also playing golf with Larry for that time also. I have made several hundred road trips with Larry and cannot recall one time he didnt put his seatbelt on. My heart goes out to his family at this time and hopefully the media will silence all the talk of Larry not wearing his seatbelt. R.I.P Larry you will be missed by all.

This man people only knew briefly as a fatality in this accident is my Father. And I say this because he always will be. He was a great person and Father. He was never in a rush to go anywhere, he knew his chances were better by taking his time. He also enjoyed the ride, he loved going here and there. He didn't just drive, he took it all in and relished being alive. Now onto Mr. Wells. Sam Wells made a huge mistake that day, one that many have come close to doing. Mr. Wells came onto the interstate without his senses. He came all the way over into the left lane, from the entrance ramp, and hit my Dads truck. What happened next was a sudden life altering event. The truck lost control and flipped 3 times. My cousin was ejected and my Father died of trauma to the head (sudden impact). My Father was blessed to die fast and not have to go on this world only to endure suffering. Mr. Wells made a mistake which cost my Dad his wonderful life and hurt ours, leaving a sudden hole/emptiness in my Mothers heart and ours. Justice will do what it'll whatever it may be to Mr. Wells, but it won't fill the void he left behind. There should be stiffer penalties for reckless and aggressive drivers because peoples lives are too fragile for this to continue. People are in a rush or just not seeing well enough, everyone who drives needs to take this story and learn from it. I have and move at a slower tempo in my life now.

You fudged up Sam. Admitting it will help everyone including yourself. Lay the blame where it belongs, because you have been charged and you will be found to be at fault by a court of law. You won't get off that easy, not to mention you didn't even have insurance. Wow.
