      Eastbound in westbound lane??? I’d say so…

    • Concerned mom

      In April, he was arrested for fighting and a minor in consumption, so apparently he has a problem with alcohol and a very thick skull to not have learned from the prior MIC and DUI.

    Great job Cam, apparently you a are a slow learner and now
    you have killed someone. If and when you get out of the hospital I hope you go directly to jail, then after your murder trial you go to prison.

  • Feldt

    Doug is my uncle and he is greatly missed by all of us in his family. The only thing I’m thankful for is that he did not suffer. My uncle was a kind and gentle man with a heart of gold who is now in heaven with my grandma(his mom) and my uncle ed(his brother) watching over all of us. Cameron, I hope you live so you can live with all of the pain and hurt you just caused our family.

  • Friend of Doug

    First off my heart goes out to Doug’s family. I had the honer to work with Doug and I don’t understand why the good ones have to leave this earth so early. I also heard many of stories of his son and how proud of him he was. I am sure Doug will be looking over his family and continuing to protect them from above. R.I.P Doug, you will never be forgotten.

  • Mrs. Fisher

    Prayers go out to the family of Mr. Feldt. The loss and great sorrow you feel I just cannot imagine. I also am sorry for the family of Mr. Williams, who will undoubtedly also suffer for this tragedy.
