a few hours ago. He took his last breath as my son held his hand and prayed with him. He ran a stop light and hit a tractor trailer at a high rate of speed. It took them ever so long to remove his body from the car. The tractor trailer proceeded around 350' across my yard damaging the yard and landscaping before he hit my dump trailer, large storage building, dog lot, and my son's nearly new truck. They look as if a tornado hit them. Although I am so truly saddened by this unnecessary death, the monetary loss to us will be around $50,000.00. The deceased did not have a license or insurance coverage. Although through the tragedy of the loss of both human life and monetary things, I am so very thankful that my son is alive. He had been as his truck 1 minute before the accident. Ten minutes earlier my DH and son were parked there in my car after returning from the doctor's office. As those that read The Porch know, there has been so much happening in my life prior to this. It's so sad. Life changes so quickly. I wonder if the young man has a family. He was much to young to die. I just found out he was 28. I guess I'm just in shock.....hope by writing this I can clear my brain just a little bit. Please pray for him, my son and DH who stayed with him as he left this earth. They are traumatized....we all are. My son keeps visualizing his face and feeling the touch of his skin. Thank you for listening.
