Does anyone know how the accident happened? It must've been very early Monday morning since no one saw it happened. RIP Liam.

It was Sunday morning, probably around 1:00 AM. He was on his way home from work.

Was it a car accident? the papers did not idicate that another car was involved. Or maybe he had a heart attack or something right before swerving off the road? My daughter went to pre-school with their son. I met the family a few times at school functions. so sad... my thoughts and prayers go out to his family
