Taylor crash update

Couple things:

  • Classes start at Taylor in a few days, and I won't be going back, but Whitney's already there! I have to imagine it must be unreal for her friends there, who left mourning her loss, to see her in the DC and classes again! There will be celebration as the Taylor community comes back together over the next few days. Check out the chapel in the background of that picture. It's a happy sight..

  • The Indianapolis Star is reporting that Grant County prosecutors are filing charges against the truck driver in the crash. Witnesses assumed the truck driver had fallen asleep at the wheel, when he drifted across the median without attempting to brake or turn back, but the investigation is showing a different picture: The truck driver "used his cell phone at 7:57 p.m. to call his sister, Nicole Spencer. Their cell phone connection ended at 8:12 p.m., several minutes after the crash, according to investigators." Local news station WTHR also has the story. WTHR has had the best, most sensitive coverage of the whole Taylor-crash story. The meteorologist at the station is an Taylor parent.

Wow, thanks for posting a link to the second thing. I hadn't heard about that, although I was wondering if anything had happened as far as charges being pressed. I am curious to know what the sister heard over the phone as the accident was taking place...
