The post read, “Last night on my way back from Bowling Green after dropping [off] one of my speakers off around midnight. I came across a horrible 3 car accident I know at least 1 person died because there was no [way] for us to get him out and he burned to death I can’t get the picture out of my head. Please put your phone down I know at least one person was on the phone when it happened because we found the phone with the person on the other end screaming [,] ‘what happened’ and yelling their name. We thought we found a live victim. I pray for all those involved and their families this morning. I know what it is like to receive that phone call.”
