    I do not know the specifics of this wreck and my prayers go out to the family.

    To everyone else “Slow Down” There have been too many one car wrecks here lately. I can’t drive the speed limit anymore without someone getting on my bumper. People your not that important. Slow Down.

    Nathan was an amazing friend and classmate to me. I pray his mother and older brother will be okay.
