St. Patty's Day and a wrong-way driver--- I'd say it's highly likely that alcohol was probably involved...

Please pray for the mother in this. Not only has she lost a husband and a child - but she also is CRITICALLY injured.

Thank you for posting the comment and any action you might have taken on the scene of the accident. The man in the car was my uncle.

The people in that Sedan weren't just people or a teenager. They were Claire, Rod, Eric, and Jacob Godfrey. Eric was the teenager, and he was a close friend of mine. Him, and his father, who was the other one who passed. Eric Godfrey, who was in the marching band and jazz band at Jackson County Comprehensive High School, was 1st chair saxaphone player, 4-time all-state nominee, funny, and a good friend. He was in the band 3da2, where he played altosaxophone. they played not too long ago... at a party i was at. and i talked to him just friday...

We were only moments behind this accident and at first sight it looked as if a car was merely stalled in a dangerous place. As we approached we could see two cars fused together hood to hood, which was now the size of one car. The cars were aligned in such a way that it seemed the drivers were completely unaware of what was about to happen. Our hearts dropped and we couldn't imagine there not being serious injuries. The news of the deaths is heart breaking. Our thoughts are with the families.

We are praying for Claire and Jacob. Rob was a good man who loved the Lord and he and Claire were both wonderful parents to Eric and Jacob. My heart goes out to this family.

This is very tragic. As a father of three teenagers my heart goes out to the family for the loss of their husband/father and son/brother. I doubt the other driver was celebrating St. Patricks day though, his name is Nicasio Rodrigo Vicente-Hernandez, draw your own conclusions.

If in fact the name listed for the wrong way driver is true, if in fact he is not legal, if in fact he could not speak or less, read english, if in fact he did not have a driver's license, if in fact he had no insurance...if in fact as an American citizen who pays taxes, pays for car insurance, has taken the driver's test and passed it, I, for one, am in favor of racial profiling when it come to latino drivers. I am sick of all the wrecks caused by non readers who have no way of reinbursing for the loss of life and loss of prpperty. I was hit by a mexican woman driving 6 other mexican women to work at Holiday Inn on Barrett parkway, in an unregistered car with no insurance or license. As soon as the collision happened, all 7 of them jumped out of the car and ran. The only reason she was captured is that a good samitiarian grabbed her as she ran by his car heading for the wooded area behind the mall.
The government has got to get a handle on this or the average citizen like me will begin to. I am sick of this!!! God Bless the family who he destroyed, legal or not legal, he caused a huge wreck that will impact this family for their lifetime.

Jacob is a sixth grader and my daughter has known him since 1st grade. I am saddened by his loss and pray for his mother's recovery. Does anyone know how he is doing and if his mother is improving?

The teenager that was killed, Eric Godfrey, was one of my best friends. He was in a band named 3da2 with my boyfriend, Michael LaRose, and their other friend, Daniel. The four of us did everything together.
I can say that as his friend, we are all struggling with this. Please pray for his mom and brother. They were the nicest family you could ever meet, and the world will not be the same without them.

This is an East Jackson, Commerce, family. We have 3 schools, elementary, middle and high. East High is a new school this year and the school is large, but close-knit. A great place for kids to attend school. Our communities and the families in our communities are close. Although it is of little consolation, we all go at the time God decides he wants to call us home. However, it happens, it is always a tragedy when a young person dies and multiple family members die. We will miss this family greatly and pray that the three who lived through the accident survive. We are proud of our band and our band students. They have excelled far beyond expectations in their first year. Whatever the causes of the driver being in the wrong lane, he paid the price. We all would like to know why he took these lives and caused such pain. The details will come out and then we can direct anger in the direction it should be directed. In the meantime there is a wife who is a mother and also a daughter in the hospital, her son and her daughter who is fighting for her life. Prayers are offered for these survivors. There are no justifications that will make their path any easier. The good Lord will be there to guide them.
