Our family is very sorry too..
The White's were friends of ours here in Statesville, NC.. They owned two local western wear
and supply stores here..
We know that Ed died in the wreck, Phylis was injured and is in a coma..
Ed's brother Presley is on life-support and luckily,
his wife was unjured..
They had traveled to Georgia to a horse show of some
kind and were returning home..
All we have been told is that someone crossed the
center medium and hit them head-on..
This has stunned our town..

I'm writing from South Carolina.

One of my friends up in Pennsylvania is the son of Gerald and Beverly Conner, who were also killed in the accident. They were from Coolspring, Pa and were apparently down in Ga visiting their daughter. I believe they were also one of the vehicles that were hit head on by the vehicle that crossed the centerline. My friend lost both of his parents in this accident and is trying to come to terms with that. I knew both the Conners from when I was in High School back in the late 80s. Very good people. Like you, I am stunned at how quickly someone's life can change, or come to an end. It makes me appreciate what I have in life a little more. After hearing of this, I'll definitely be giving my wife and son, along with everyone else special in my life, an extra hug and kiss from now on.

This is so sad. I grew up with Beverly and Jerry was a friend. They were in the car with Beverly's brother and wife who are my neighbors. They are in critical condition in a Georgia hospial. They had been to the Atlanta area to visit their sister that is terminaly ill. It makes us aware that our life can be taken in an instant.

I am second cousin to Beverly and her brother Jack. I was very shocked to hear about this tragedy. Beverely and her husband were wonderful people. My sympathy goes out to the family.

I didn't know any of the victims of the accident, but I was nearby on that day. I was travelling north on I-85 and, had I not exited at hwy 129 for fuel, I might have been in it, as well. I was told that Mr. Barton never attempted to brake as he crossed the median and into the northbound lane. I can't imagine why that would happen, unless he had a heart attack or some other sudden illness that impaired his ability to operate his vehicle. Does anyone know what happened? My heart goes out to all of you who lost someone in that accident. My job keeps me on the road and I have seen many, but that was the worst one I have seen.
