  • “the trailer was badly damaged.”

  • RIP Marky Mark. You were a warrior with a heart of gold.

  • Jeez. 3 dead in 24 hours…

    • Mark ‘Coaster” was good people , he had lots of passions , and he loved his son dearly , the man had overcome huge hurdles after almost losing his life a couple years ago in a wicked car accident , this is very sad and he will be greatly missed . And I will never forget you friend ! See you on the other side bud ! And Godlbless his family

  • My condolences 🕊

  • That’s what sucks about this scanner news. There’s no follow through. Just leave you hanging. It’s stupid

  • Uh, do you not get theres a procedure? Family is notified first, then more info released if needed.

    In the past, pics of dead people were posted prior to family notification caused a lot of pain. A woman i know was heartbroken to learn of her sons death from a pic of his shoes poking out from under a tarp outside his address after he was stabbed and killed, rather than through official channels. If you havent been thru it you may not get it.

    I commend kym in respecting familys and their wishes. Families have the right to ask for info to not be printed if they choose so.
    What besides the name of deceased is missing here? If you know the person im sure you’ll hear about it through the grapevine or obituary.
    A tree fell on a trailer and killed someone. It happens and it sucks. Are you that bored that you need gory details???
    Head over to thunderdome on loco, you’ll enjoy that more.

  • It says a tree crashed into the vehicle. Proofread if you can college graduate.
