Default Eliminator crashes in Nebraska.

Sad to hear cause this guy was the owner of a major towing company in Denver. Was a good dude.

I talked to a guy today that said the drive was completely torn off and they were searching for it on the bottom of the lake. Not a good deal.

The Drawbaugh family are very close friends of my family and myself. Our hearts and prayers go out to S, J & C. Joey touched my life in many ways. He will deeply missed by his family and friends. RIP Brother.

As for what happened, we don't know. The boat has not been recovered yet.
