Oh man :/

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

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

Cheeseburger, you are so right. Bob was a very sweet man & comes from a wonderful family. I worked at the Baldwin Junction gas station for awhile back about 13 yrs ago & had the pleasure of conversating with him daily. This is so sad to hear. My prayers go out to the family.

To clear up any confusion Cheeseburger, the minivan as shown in the photo is white, not maroon. Thanks for contributing to this story.
