The last ride home

It would be the last time Kevin Chittum and his fiancée would ever see their two-year-old daughter. A massive storm on July 14th, 1988 blew through while the two lovebirds along with relatives and friends packed into one car and headed to a county carnival. The storm caused them to hit an 18-wheeler head-on. Everybody was killed, including the driver of 18-wheeler.

There were 12 of the victims that were seriously hurt.
