    This driver responsible for the crash was my ex-husband and the father of my 19 and 20 year old daughters. He was diabetic and sometimes had blackouts if he forgot to take his medication. This is one of the many possibilities that may have contributed to this tragedy. These girls have a lot on their shoulders right now trying to prepare for the expense and heartbreak of planning his funeral. My 19 year old is 8 1/2 months pregnant and I am so concerned for her well-being. I am in Texas and cannot afford to make the trip up there to help them as my husband recently got laid off and the finances are just not there. My niece has set up a gofundmepage…any assistance to my children would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time to whomever reads this. Even if it’s not monetary…a share could make a great impact.
