Does anyone know who the young man was driving a bright yellow new mustang today (think it was mustang to broken to really tell)involved in a horrible accident appt 1:40pm in the southbound lane of I55 close to the marion exit??? I watched them use the jaws of life to extract him from the car and transport him by helicopter. He was driving too fast northbound on service road and lost control, crossed onto the interstate and ran up under an 18 wheeler taking out the whole back tandum. All i know is he was very young and i would like to know if he lived and what his name was. It was the worst accident i have ever seen. I was just a few trucklenghts back and came upon it b4 any police or EMTs arrived. they are not even covering it on the news. Any info on the young man???

My husband was driving on the other lane of the interstate and saw this wreck happen too, but from his view he thought the tandum just unexpectedly came of the truck and hit another car. We were searching through kait and such trying to find info on what may have happened, but your post is the only written word of it! Whats up with that? It's a horrible thing to see and prayers are with those injured including the ones traumatized by witnessing it.

It's a shame that they probably didn't cover the story just because it wasnt caught on video.

I can not get this wreck out of my mind. It was by far the worst wreck I have ever seen. Haven't stopped praying since my husband and I went by and seen it all. That's actually why I got on topix to try and figure out how the person or persons were so maybe I could put my mind at ease. I pray for the person and their family and anyone else that was affected by this wreck may the Lord put his healing hands on everyone.

thank you heather....i couldnt really tell what kind of car it was. only the trunk was left. the driver of the truck said he thought it was a mustang...i thought the backend looked a little small. Where is "info" gettin his or her info?? Im pretty sure noone else was in the car unless by some miracle they just got out and walked off on their own which i highly doubt...i could be wrong. I know it was a guy because i walked over and talked to the truckdriver that he hit. He said a young guy bleeding from everywhere on his head and he would be suprised if he lived...but miracles do happen. ALOT of people took pics including me.

I heard they were all high school kids--I also heard the driver, a young man, was killed and two girls airlifted to Memphis. I hope my information is inaccurate. Our kids think they are invincible. Pray for these families who are going through hell right now.

stephanie i saw them airlift the driver but they must have removed the two girls by the time i had the nerve to walk closer to the accident. i know they were very young but the accident happened before school let out so maybe not high school kids. ive been very obsessed with finding out if the young people lived as this was the worst accident i have ever seen. I do pray that all involved lived but i would be very suprised if they did!

I agree with "guest" and "just passed by" I believe it was a yellow cobalt. Hard to tell from what was left of the car. It looked like the car ran under the 18 wheeler. The civilians and there family's r in my prayers.
