    If this is the same accident I was led to believe that he was side swiped or cut off by a vehicle and the culprits fled the scene, he leaves his only 17 year old son an orphan as my sister passed 1 week short of 3 years ago. I trust that all witnesses come forward with information to assist Detective Byron Watson on 0825593883 solve this very sad matter.
