cet: Do you know one of the drivers? I live near Liberty Hill and the explosion from the collision was incredible. It seems that something exploded but it doesn't say that in the article.

I understand your words God Bless Danny and His Family, But you never did say anything about the other driver nor his family.
Well I am his daughter in law. That day our world as we knew it ended , My mother in law was left with no husband, thier children were left with no father , the grand children no more pop's. Even tho a year has past it still is like yesterday. my husband and my youngest age 5 now still runs to the front door looking for pop's . I have to drive by daily the site of the wreck. It was not an accident it was the choice of Danny to drive like he was and had been. Maybe being young and not with his head on but still he made that choice time and time again. We forgive but foregetting is hard. I know its hard on his mother and family cause of his actions. and I too pray for her and the family. Just thought that knowing the other part to this would be nice. GOD BLESS

Hmmm... The right words are hard to find here.
I grew up with Danny my whole life. He will always be one of my closest friends. That cloudy December day will never be far from my thoughts. I live in Bertram and also have to drive by the wreck scene every day. The reason I say this is because I promise you were not the only one to be crushed that Christmas. I understand were you come from and I'm sorry for your loss. We both lost someone we loved that day. Danny was a great friend. He loved life and it very clear he was loved by many. I knew him from the third grade. We were best friends. He was my roomate when we went to school at Blinn. We moved back around here and I was lucky enough to work with him for three years at Austin Powder. I got to see him every day. I was having a lot of problems around that time. I lost my Pop, and was going through some realy hard times in a relationship. Danny would talk to me every day about God and life etc. He would tell me "you got to get right with God" He was a very good person. I don't know what all you have heard but I felt I have to defend him in a way.
He was your normal young man with dreams of getting married and growing around his friends and family. I loved him. I know you loved yours. I have to believe that God put them both there at the same time. Dannys Mom by -the -way passed away right after he did from a very hard battle with cancer. I loved her too. She didnt make it four months after him. I talked to her about a lot of things too. Its been very hard for his brother and sister and the rest of us to say the least. I'm not down playing your pain mam. With the hollidays coming up its hard on all of us. I think I was doing the same thing you were. I could'nt sleep tonight and for some reason looked it up. I dont know why. I miss him. I lost my grandpa who was like my Dad, Danny, and his mom who was a second mom to me all within 6 months. I will always remember 2008 as the year of heartache. I understand your pain Mam, and God willing one day we will be able to mend our broken hearts. I will pray for your family as I do ours. I hope you can enjoy some of the hollidays while I know Christmas will never be the same for some of us. Just thought you might want to hear from someone who atually knew who Danny was. If I know my friend right, they were already friends before they made it through the gates of heaven. He never knew a stanger. God bless your family and happy hollidays. JD

I was just trying to say his action was not proper and cause of his action many people suffered that day. I and the other family members ae dealing with many passings. As well as other people. I just wish that Austin Powder Company would have dealt with Danny's Driver better than before,There was no need to drive like that. It was not an accident on Danny's Part (he is not a victim) He was the one that chose to drive like that. I am not sure if you were the other driver that day? I too live in Bertram and I drive a school bus for Liberty Hill. I foregive Danny but I will never foreget. My father in law George Worrell was the victim he was driving not playing games on the road with his truck. He even tryed to steer away from it , he was put in that spot by Danny and no other person. I don't understand why Danny and that other driver was playing and what ever you want to call it. Racing and passing like that on the road. Since you worked with him and was his friend can you explain that? Did he not know that his way of driving might cause a wreck and what that outcome might be ? Who gets hurt? the famlies? I understand how you feel on the losses that day, and I relate I just need those answers as to why. I am happy that God was there that day, I am blessed to know that he believed in God too and I know my father in law was saved, I will pray for you and his family. I would like to meet with you for tea, Maybe we can talk face to face and talk about them. Blessings
