This was my brother who was killed in this senseless crash. I just do not understand why someone would get behind the wheel of any vehicle while under the influence. It has caused so much pain for his wife and our family which is his siblings. My brother Danny was a wonderful man. DariusWilliams just cannot realize the hurt that he has bought to my family and to my brother Danny's wife Mary.

That was my dad Danny Morgan such a beautiful soul I'm dealing with his death every day I breathe.. his grand children miss him I miss him. Words can't describe what happened he was on his way home from work.. never made it our family is broken 💔 💯
