My prayers also, and I’m sorry you had to witness that, Mary.
I was on my way taking the kids to school, I knew a car had to of ran off the road into the woods as we saw a lady running up to look down over the bank and smoke was coming up out of the woods. All I could do is say a prayer for who ever was in the car. I am so sorry to hear the man lost his life. My prayers are with his family and friends. So sad.
