aunt when they passed the crash site, "I knew somebody died just by the way the
white car looked. It was all smashed into pieces into the wall."

realized her gut instinct was right, "We started to drive by and I saw a
sheet and I was looking over the side of the window and I just saw a man laying
there and I just started crying."

their son the night before Mother's Day and somebody lost their father."

Troy Dunn, was stunned to hear the news, "It's a bad thing, especially for
her and those two kids, especially those kids that have to grow up like that
with no dad."
Dunn described Sharp
as a nice guy who liked to fish. He also said Sharp was a part-time chef and
was leaving a wedding where he was the DJ.
Sharp's fiancé is
expected to recover.
The driver of the Cadillac
was also transported to University Hospital and is listed in serious condition.
