All I know is he's in ICU and the driver of the car is dead. She ran out to ICU but I have to say here b/c she's had his 18 month old nephew here. Now I'm left here waiting to hear any news. I just spent like 30 mins on the phone the other day with him too.

He's a Marine that came in town to drop off his vehicle because he was scheduled to go to Iraq on the 20th.

That's not good news.

It's easy to let yourself drift towards the darkness while waiting... please do your best to stay positive. It does make a difference.

Sending some prayers that way. Start a prayer chain brother. My thoughts go out to your G/F and her brother. This is a tragic event!!!!
