GLENDALE, KY (WAVE) - Eleven day old Dakota Reynolds Jr. will never know his parents.

"I hope one day soon I'm able to take care of him like his dad would," Michael Reynolds said.

Dakota was Michael's younger brother.

"You know we had dinner, he came over for the football game, and he left to go get the baby at about 6:30 p.m. I'd say," Michael said. 

The crash happened around 7 p.m. Tire marks in the grass are all that's left of the scene.

Police said for some reason Reynolds' car spun out of control, entered the northbound lane and was hit by an oncoming SUV.

"I'm still trying to get the release of his vehicle and get some type of idea of what happened," Michael said. "They left my house so happy."

Michael is trying to remember the couple that way.

"Everything around me is moving but my life has just stopped," he said.
