  • Omg I was just told about this. I can’t believe it. My heart goes out to Carol’s children… CJ, Kyle, Eric, Christy, and Holli. Also to her mother and sister and her boyfriend and his family.
    Carol worked for me many years ago in Tennessee. She was a wonderful lady and loved by so many. No matter how hard life was for her she always seemed to smile and hold her head up high. I loved her and Im so sad that she is gone. Now she’s in heaven and she an angel looking over us. She is at peace with no more pain and suffering. Rest in peace Carol Bell you will be missed by so many. my deepest sympathy to her family and loved ones.

  • Tom you don’t know me. But this fatality was my aunt. My family is devastated and in a state of shock. Please continue posting anything you have on this matter. The knock by a highway patrol woke up my grandmother at 11 pm last night….. we want any info possible! And for those praying for my family thank you! This was my grandmother’s youngest child… a pain most parents do not have to endure. During my families mourning please respect the fact we live far away from where the accident occured, we would all like to be informed. This was our first notion something may have been wrong. So Tom I thank you for the report! Unfortunately our worst thoughts became reality last night.
    God bless you all…. be safe!
