    It can be hard to drive after working 16 hours. On a few occasions of doing it myself I had a friend or family member take me home. Fatigued driving is dangerous. Keep these families in your thoughts.

    Cody Ramey Is still in ICC but he will be ok. He has a broken pelvic bone and some minor bleeding. He is having surgery tomorrow morning. From what i gather Mr. Taylor had just worked off a 16 hour shift at walmart and was on his way home. I can only assume that he may have fallen asleep and that is what caused the accident. Please keep both of these families in your prayers.
