Nice man, nice family. Prayers to them all.

To clear up any confusion, he was better known as Bob. And the minivan was white, not maroon - as shown in the photo.

I saw the same thing; passed by just as the first deputy was arriving. Knew it was a bad deal immediately.

Oh man :/

I passed it on my way back, saw a whole group of people doing CPR before ER crews started arriving. Awful.
