Fatal accident on Rt 143 near Zion

Did you ever stop to think I might be home waiting for someone who is late and would have been driving that route? Family wants to know asap not several hours later when the patrols feel like visiting. A slight bit of information such as car, truck, motorcycle, etc., could put a few worried mother's mind at ease.  (Jan 24, 2017 | post #3)

Bette, Thank you for the update on Rodney. I will pray for him every day of my life in hopes that the best will come to him. I'm glad to hear that there are a few improvements but I pray for so much more. Congratulations on the growing family. I am sure that you, like me, would love to see our boys (Rod and Jake) with a love and maybe a family of their own by now. Oh well, there must be a bigger plan. I am surprised to hear about Rodney's tattoo! That is the sweetest thing that I have ever heard. I'll take it as a sign that he has forgiven Jacob. That means the world to me. I can't say my heart would be that big if it were me. Bless his lovely soul! Myself, I'm healing. It took a long time and I beat myself up for many years by blaming myself. It's only recently that I can accept that everything does happen for a reason. Accepting it has helped me a lot. I still live down here near Nealsonville. Jake loved this area the first time he seen it so I feel connected to him here. The highway where this happened, Rt 33, has been re-routed. If this had been done in 2008 the boys would have been on a divided highway - no head on traffic. Perhaps it will help save others. I don't know. Just wish it were done sooner. Thank you so much for remaining in touch. It's nice to talk to you. Please share an extra hug with Rodney for me. (tears are flowing just thinking about that sweet young man) Love and best wishes, Kym  (Aug 6, 2013 | post #78)

It is hard to believe that it has been 4-1/2 years since this tragedy. It still feels like yesterday to me. Rodney has been in my mind quite a bit lately. I hope that means that some normalcy has returned to his life. The other boys, from what I hear, have moved on. Rodney, if you ever read these notes I hope you know that I am very sorry for what happened to you. I hope your recovery is coming faster now that the brain has had time to heal some more. If there is ever, ever, ever anything that I can do to help you please let me know. Don't feel like a stranger - I've thought of you every time I think of Jacob. In a way, at least to me, you are like family. Please let me help you if there is a way for me to help. {hugs}  (Jul 5, 2013 | post #74)

One injured in Rutland area home invasion

So, was this incidence between people that know each other? This was a personal issue? Are nearby residents safe or should we load the guns?  (Jan 30, 2013 | post #12)

Train engineers are traumatized when they see a car on the tracks. It's sad to see they are only getting a traffic citation. The engineer will have nightmares for months.  (Sep 8, 2011 | post #3)

Hi Bette, I was not sure if anyone read this page any more. It is so nice to see you here. My email address changed so I hadn't seen your response until today. I'm glad you are still reading and writing here. I've thought about Rodney so often. I knew the head trauma would take a long time to heal but I had hoped for better news. I'm sure this is all very frustrating for him, and everyone around him. My best wishes and healing prayers will always remain with him. Has Rodney been able to return to any type of normal life? Maybe a new dream/goal for the future or is that still only a hope for another day? I feel so bad that words alone will never let him know how badly I feel for him. How are you doing Bette? It's been a long road for you too. I hope you are well and in good spirits. Your return visit... is that to the Columbus doctor? Please, if you don't mind, would you post any updates you have for Rodney? Best wishes to you and the family. Kym  (May 29, 2011 | post #70)

So much time has past but this accident is still so fresh in my mind. Some lives were lost, some were nearly lost, and all our lives are changed forever because of this tragic day. Myself, I've survived my own medical issues. I had to. I needed to get back to that place on the road where all of this started... and Jake's life ended. I've moved from my NY farm to a small town not far from Nelsonville. I am here because I need to build, and maintain, a memorial on that spot. I feel the need to do this to honor Jacob, but much more than that, I hope that is will remind every driver on that highway to drive safely because lives can be lost. This Saturday, with flowers and paving stones donated from a local farmer, a beautiful memorial garden will be planted. It is my hope that this beautiful spot on the highway will inspire other drivers to slow down, pay attention, and acknowledge how precious life is. And, with the grace of God, Jacob's garden may help to save other lives. If anyone reads this, and you are in the area, feel free to stop by this Saturday at 3pm to lend a hand or offer a plant, bulb, or a seed to this garden.  (May 12, 2011 | post #68)

I am glad to hear that. (re: federal charges) Now if they could start cleaning up the crime, especially home robberies, Ripley would not be a bad place to live.  (May 12, 2011 | post #33)

Hello again. This past year has been so hard but I'm sure all the prayers have been helpful in many ways. Thank you everyone. Someone from that area in Ohio has been sending me cards throughout the year. Thank you for those as well. Timing them around special holidays was a very nice touch as those are the hardest times to be alone. (I suspect it may be someone from the school.) I have wanted to place some type of memorial next to the highway for quite some time but I didn't feel it was right to put something for Jake without including Angel. I didn't want to step on anyone's toes, or be a painful reminder to the family, by doing something without their permission. I don't know what to place there... angels, a wreath, two crosses (probably Celtic cross for us) or something else entirely. The last time I spoke with Angel's mom the blood test was in question. Since that time I learned that the test measures any pot inhaled over the prior 30 days. I talked to Jake's friends and one actually had a video of a night they spent together. It is lengthy but I'll forward it to anyone that wants it. It is a party - they blow things up with fire crackers - 2 boys are smoking pot in a cabin and Jake is refusing to go in - says he doesn't want to "reak" so he was staying outside. The boys teased him but he blamed it on me, like I always told him to do, he says, "You don't know my mother. She has nose like a effing bloodhound." Eventually he did go in the shed and the boys played 'Magic' cards for a few hours. The whole time Jake never touched the pot but he was around it for a long time. Anyway, the boys didn't want to give me the video but eventually they thought that it might bring me some peace. My new email is below. Write if you want to see it. So, yes there was pot in the blood but it was an accumulation of anything up to 30-days old. Jake was an electrical engineer apprentice most of the summer and he was tested constantly and always passed the tests as clean. I think what is more obvious is that there was no pot in the car. No pot - no one smoking pot. Paraphanela was in the car but the way things flew around there is no telling where anything may have come from. The back pack containing most of it did not belong to Jake but it may have belonged to anyone he went to school with. In fact, the back pack wasn't even found until the car was lifted and moved so maybe that was in the trunk too. I don't know. Likewise with the beer can - no one had alcohol in the system (that test shows only what was in system that day) but the can that was found came from the trunk (part of the back seat was ripped out - 11 cans remained in the trunk but one flew to the center of the car when the beer box was ripped open - the tab was still sealed shut). Well, I'm blabbering again but I thought it might be time to talk about that test and hopefully put some suspicions to rest. The bottom line is that this was an accident and neither drugs or alcohol, excessive speed, or erratic driving caused it. Now, with the anniversary almost upon us, is it the right time to consider a memorial? Either way, I will be there on Saturday to lay flowers out. Would Angel's family mind if I leave something in memory of her? To Rodney, keep on recovering and I pray there are no further set backs. Jon and Shawn, thanks for being as helpful and kind as you were to me. I hope you are finding some normalcy in your lives. Best wishes to all.

Hello ladies. I can't tell you how happy I am to hear about Rodney's progress. I have been sick and too scared to look for updates. I couldn't handle bad news. I am so glad to see so much progress. As for Jacob, an organization associated with my church has set up a memorial scholarship in his name. That is going very well and has collected a good amount. There are 3 bands, I don't remember who but they are famous, have contacted us and agreed to play for free to help the fund raising. The concert will be Sept 26, 2009. (The anniversary.) The scholarship will be for children in the Forestry field of science. (Whatever that field of study is called - my mind is going.) Jacob's desire to improve the enviroment, and his memory, will live forever through the students that receive these funds. I find it very fitting. Myself, I have given up my ministry and have sold off most of my farm to make up the income. My husband has retired because I am unable to care for myself most of the time. Really, the only thing that keeps me alive is knowing that my mother would feel this pain if something were to happen to me. I really don't want her to feel this. I'm in my 3rd round with Cancer. Cancer doesn't hurt so I'm okay with it. I know my family doesn't read this so I'll be honest. I'm not asking for treatment anymore. I'm only asking to be kept comfortable. I will be with Jacob one day. That is the day that I pray for. Karma... Last Saturday, 4/18, my 22-year-old neice was killed in an auto accident. Her drunk boyfriend was trying to scare her. He drove over 80mph down a dark side road and kept swerving towards the ditches in order to scare her. He ran the stop sign so that she wouldn't jump from the car. The next time he swerved the car went airborne and her side of the car hit a telephone pole. Her head exploded and she was dead on impact. (Heather Fiorelli in Eastlake, OH.) We know what happened because she was on the phone with her father. She was begging him to pick her up. He was all ready on the road looking for her but the boyfriend didn't drop her off at any of the places she asked to be dropped off. She was relaying all of the events over the phone as she talked to her dad, my brother. He killed our angel. It seems like the horror of death will never leave us. But, I am so glad that Rodney is recovering and some of this madness will end. Bless him for restoring some hope! Kym Jacob's mother (11/21/1988-9/26/2 008)  (Apr 20, 2009 | post #55)

To Angel's parents, I apologize if my note to dlundsford upset you. I waited so long to find out what happened and until I learned that, all I could picture was that mans description of my son in the car. It tore me to pieces to find out that he wasn't even there and his graphic details of my son was a fabrication. Hurting you was the furthest thing that I wanted to do. Every day I remember that this nightmare began with my son and that car. I would never intentionally bring you more grief. I am sorry that it turned out that way. You won't see me here again. My family has caused enough harm. Feel free to continue reading these blogs daily. I hope it brings you peace. I wish you well.  (Oct 24, 2008 | post #32)

One more note... the police report also states that both drivers were wearing seat belts. I'm not sure about Angela's family but for me it caused a lot of little extra grief, ie, being angry at my son. My son always wore it. He didn't do it just for me. There are many times that I was out doing work on the farm and he'd drive by, not knowing that I could see him, and he would have that seat belt on. He even wore it when he was driving on the farm. Anyway, the seatbelt issue was a sore spot. I just wish the news media could get their facts straight. You know, even if the accdient could not have been prevented, it does bring a little peace to the family if you know that all safty precautions were used (seatbelts, airbags).  (Oct 18, 2008 | post #26)

One more thing, did you ever stop to think that moving him may have killed him? If he was breathing and not bleeding profusely (he only had scratches on him) then there was no reason for him to be moved by anyone other than a medical professional. If you were actually there, how would respond to this? Did you also move the woman driver?  (Oct 18, 2008 | post #25)

Hi Lunsford, You are not listed on the accident report. Did you take facts from the news story and then decide to embellish them for some sick reason? Why did you write this comment?  (Oct 18, 2008 | post #24)
