wreck on the hornbeak highway

Jesus said,

"He who is without sin, cast the first stone."

Nobody was stoned that day.

The courts and their officers will be held accountable if there is known injustice given by any. In that fact (we as Christians) hold to our faith.

God is a just God. Ours is not to seek revenge.

Having anyone held accountable for wrong doing is not revenge. It is the power of laws. None of which would exist if it were not for a God who gave laws to man.

Another passage from the Bible states:

Pray for your enemies. If you have an enemy in anyone involved in this accident, then you need to pray for them. Remember, you are not without sin also. Some of us do not need to be reminded of the latter verse, but obviously some do.

To Whichwayisit (from a hidden location) Why are you hiding?
If you know of a police report which is public, then post it. After all, it is public. If not, then don't state something is on a police report without having proof of such. That is how people are led to believe something as fact, when no proof has been given. Only a statement.
Some say the glass is half full, while others say it is half empty. Either "may" be correct, but the fact of the matter is the glass has something in it, and unless the substance is identified by a competent person, one can only speculate as to what the substance in the glass is.
No Police reports or websites to this accident have been posted here that I have seen.

You seriously need to shut the ....up! Stop preaching to us about your precious law enforcement gods "taking care of everything". We don't happen to have much faith in our so called law enforcers at the moment. See, when you live in a place where there are whole shifts of corrupt cops, you kind of lose faith in them. We also are smart enough to know the "professionals" you keep speaking of that are HIRED (yep u even said it) in a courtroom are nothing but paid liars. Lets not forget about a half a billion dollar potfarm growing right under their noses. Save the preaching for your cop peanut gallery! Cops also lie on police reports sometimes so basing facts on that is nothing but a joke.

Bobby, Below are several references made to the accident/crash report. Also referenced is the Trooper by name and THP. Some of them also state he crossed lanes. So stop gettin on to me about "where's the reports"? I know what I am reading. Why are you choosing to not stand up for your friend? why are you defending the one who harmed him and others? with excuses? I don't understand you. I am not hiding. I choose to keep my personal information to myself as Topix suggests. Please see below, whether you want to accept it or not, the truth is TN caused this crash by speeding and crossing the lane.

"The crash is still under investigation and citation and criminal charges are pending." - Dyersburg State Gazette.

"The Tennessee Highway Patrol crash report states Naifeh was driving eastbound in a 2003 Chevrolet four-door half-ton truck on Highway 21. As he approached two vehicles in the oncoming lane, his truck reportedly crossed the centerline and struck both vehicles. The report states Naifeh's vehicle went down the full length of the first vehicle, a 2004 Buick regal, which the Bells were in and then struck the second vehicle, a 2004 Ford F250, head-on." - Dyersburg State Gazette

"Timothy C. Naifeh, 52, of Tiptonville, Tenn. was eastbound on Highway 21 and crossed the center line in his pickup hitting a car full-length driven by David C. Bell, 51, of Forsythe, Georgia." - The Christian Chronicle

"THP Trooper Nicholas Hollowell reported the collision occurred just east of Hornbeak on Highway 21, about 200 yards east of West Williams Road.
David Bell was reported to be driving west on Highway 21 in a 2004 Buick Regal when an eastbound 2003 Chevrolet pickup driven by Naifeh apparently crossed the centerline, striking the Bell vehicle on the left front and going down the full length of the car before then colliding head-on with a westbound 2004 Ford pickup driven by Constance Kelly Fisher, 40, of Obion." - UC Chronicle

"On the accident report, the trooper indicated he did not believe the use of safety restraints would have made a difference in the fatalities."

"The accident remains under investigation today and charges are pending, the THP reported."

I don't think there is any argument that he was speeding or crossed the line.I think the argument is that there are so many violent opinions of how everyone seems to think it happened without knowing WHY he was speeding.As Mr Gardener stated there could be several different reasons other than a flagrant breaking of the law.No one knows the facts of WHY he was speeding or how he ended up crossing the center line.This is what everyone needs to wait on before posting some of the things they are saying.

As far as charges pending,this could mean serious charges or they could be something as simple as failure to maintain.Just saying, nothing has been formally announced as of yet.

WHY he was speeding? There is no good reason for breaking the law! Who cares WHY??? The law does'nt make excuses for why. Oh well ok then, since you were running late it's no big deal they're dead! It says criminal charges are pending. Big difference! Gardener post are odd. All seem to be making an argument for reasons and excuses. The state doesn't care about space shuttles??? Talk about sticking to the facts. He should do the same. Also the professionals he keeps referring to are all paid to say what the attorney that hires them tells them to say. Why he would put more faith in that than he would the folks who witnessed his erratic driving or the hornbeak officer who phoned ahead for them to get him in Troy. Or trooper hollowell who ordered the drug and alcohol testing. Which can only be done when a "reasonable suspicion" exists that such a test should be done. All these facts yet he makes up a bunch of nonsense and then ask us to wait on facts. Well here's a thought, you wait on more facts while we exercise our rights to our opinions and our rights to freedom of speech. Also, thank God for our good common sense and the ability to draw our own conclusions based on facts...and the ability to change our opinions should the facts require us to do so! Here's a statement of fact for you...Ever wonder why Officer Hollowell didn't order drug and alcohol test on the bells?

Thank you. You are absolutely correct. I have not defended anyone in this matter. I have a friend whom is gone now, and his family will be forever at a loss because of it. My prayers are for everyone involved. Not just the Bells. I've watched their sons grow up and have sons near their same ages. How tragic this has been for them cannot be measured. I don't know anything of the others, and I do know that "The News" is a "Business", and often stretches statements by what they call journalistic freedom. I have witnessed that kind of reporting in the past. This is not to say the News there is involved in anything of the sort, but experience says... Wait for the official version by the court. Then, if there is anything to say, one can back it up with a Legal Finding. Not rumor. Thank you for showing there is some people of sound mind reading this blog, because I was beginning to wonder. I've read one report, but knew nothing of the integrity of those writing the reports, nor the officers involved. I will continue to wait and pray for all involved. Thank you to anyone who has offered any encouragement to the families involved, and for those whom have read my post and realized that I have not chosen any side for or against. I loved
my friend David Bell, and I love his family. I have no hate for anyone. If there is blame, then it will come out, and I along with anyone who is interested, will know what the finding was, but even then, appeals will be heard and it may be years before the Final Judgement is made. I will try to stay off this blog after this statement, because it is filled with people who think they can say anything without regard to innocents who are affected by their rantings. Each person involved in this tragic situation, has other family members whom care about them. They all need time to grieve the loss of life, and to come to terms with the fact that "if" their loved one is responsible, that they may suffer along with those who are judged at fault. When something like this comes about, if any one person is at fault, then I hope they are held to everything the law requires of those whom are so, and especially if their actions were criminal in nature. I will not sit on the jury, but if the rantings continue, then there is the possibility of a prejudice which is allowed to sway the court, called the inability of the courts to find a fair jury of peers to guarantee the right of a fair trial. If a convincing argument is made in that regard, then all charges can be held and after a period of time, the statute of limitations makes a trial impossible.
Bobby Gardner
PS.(I'm not a lawyer) But thank those whom thought I might be. I take it as a compliment. I'm just a country boy, who loves his wife and children, and tries to love everyone else. I would appreciate any prayers on my behalf.

John N. He is not a member of our family. He stated before that he was a friend of David's from GA. Although we do know that our family did not run out in front of him. That has been proven in several articles. So for the sake of everyone just let it go. No one knows what happened except for God. I have stated before we appreciate the prayers for our family throughout all this. We pray for your family for comfort as well. This past week was a hard time for us. We do now know what yall are going through and yall have no idea the pain we are going through and went through laying to rest three of our family members. So I think the best thing that could be done is the forum being taken down. I'm sick of seeing all the hatred going on here. Everyone should realize yes both families are hurting. Each in there own way and some more than others. So before anyone else wants to comment on something they don't know take this into account:

1) Three Members of a family were lost on a tragic day.*Pray for the family to have peace and comfort knowing where their loved ones are*
2) A family almost lost a loved one.*Pray that this man gains comfort in the coming days to handle what has happened*
3) Remember the young man that had to not only watch but listen to the awful sounds of the wreck and know he was the only survivor.*Pray for comfort to this young man to know there is a reason he is here today*
4) The truth will come out soon, and then we will all know just what really happened.*Pray that justice will be served for whatever happened*

If you don't like what is being written then stop reading it. And saying God is the only one that knows what happened is a joke. Tim knows damn well what happened. He was out drinking and hunting all day and stopped to get MORE beer to drink on his way to Troy. How's that for not knowing what happened? Plenty of eyewitnesses. STOP making excuses for your piece of shit relative.

Appreciate your post! I think guest got his wires crossed. Looks like he was thinking you were defending Tim. I'd like to say how saddened we were to hear about Mr. And Mrs. Bell. I simply cannot imagine your pain. Frankly it scares me to even try. As someone who has seen the dangers of these roads her entire life I am so mad! I want not to yell and accuse but then find myself mad all over again. I'm angry that someone who should have known better did not exercise sound judgement. I mean when you grow up around there you're told, be extra careful in hornbeak go slow round all those curves. I'm sorry just so sorry, God gave us time as our healer. Maybe as time passes some since of peace can come to every member of your family. A time when reflection brings only good memories and all this other is faint or non existent! God Bless,

Yes, it really shows by his recent pictures that he is a heavy drinker and using drugs,only adds to the aging/roughness of his appearance. Once one becomes like that, nothing matters. The career, class, decency, self respect, character, reputation is all down the drain. Too bad, but it happens. I saw that last time I saw him. What's really sad is that these type people always end up bringing someone else down as he has done. Time's up with him and he will have no choice over the matter this time around.

I can't begin to imagine how he held all those city and county Attorney positons. People had to know that worked with him on a daily basis. Was it all just ignored? or were there known problems? Alcoholism is a desease and recognizable. If you knew it, others had to also. Was he ever approached or reprimanded for it by anyone?
