My heart goes out to the family. I'm actually his his daughter in law who lives in Columbus, Ohio. His son, Danny, is actually on his way back to Pickens to make sure that he receives a proper burial. I wondered if this was going to be ruled as an accident or homicide. How fast was the driver driving? Was Mr. Shelton walking where he was supposed to walk on Highway 176? More details would be greatly appreciated, as all the rest of the family is currently stricken and disraught emotionally. Will there be a follow up article regarding this issue? Thanks for the information.
