Family of 6 taken to hospital after truck rolls

ST. GEORGE — Four children and two adults, all members of the same family, were transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in St. George after a single-vehicle rollover that closed Indian Hills Drive for an hour and a half Monday morning.

Police received the initial call at 8:31 a.m., and when they arrived, found a 2014 Dodge Ram truck on its side on Indian Hills Drive near Gubler Lane, St. George Police Sgt. Spencer Holmes said.

“When we arrived the vehicle was still on its side,” Holmes said. “Some citizens were helping remove the four children and two adults from the vehicle.”

The driver of the truck was a 35-year-old man, accompanied by his 32-year-old wife and their four boys, ages 5, 7, 11 and 13.

“The adults were pretty banged up, the kids were shaken up, as well as having lacerations to their heads,” Holmes said. One child appeared uninjured but was transported to the hospital as a precaution.

Everyone in the vehicle was awake, conscious and alert, Holmes said. The adults and children had cuts and abrasions. Due to the significance of the crash, all the patients were treated as if they had serious injuries and transported to the hospital, he said.

“The bleeding on the cuts had already stopped when we arrived,” Holmes said.

All of the occupants of the truck were wearing seat belts, Holmes said, and the airbags deployed.

“Luckily, they were all transported conscious and alert, because it had the potential to be a very serious accident,” he said.

Four Gold Cross ambulances responded to the scene, and the St. George Fire Department responded as well, helping to triage the injured family members.

Indian Hills Drive remained closed until 10 a.m. as crews worked to remove the truck and clean up the scene.

The cause of the accident has not been determined as this report is published. Accident reconstruction and investigation by the St. George Police Department is underway.

This report is based on preliminary information provided by law enforcement or other emergency responders and may not contain the full scope of findings.

    citation for reckless driving and endangerment. Minimum 90 days suspended license and $2500 fine

    • Jordan G August 17, 2015 at 6:53 pm

      Too bad there isn’t a citation for vapid comments, especially assumptions based off of nothing. I think the internet would be a better place if people like you got a 90 day suspension on commenting… a fine wouldn’t hurt either.

      • kyleewilder August 18, 2015 at 2:35 am

        Jordan, you’re so awesome! Thank you.

  • ladybugavenger August 17, 2015 at 1:18 pm

    Improper lane travel

    • kyleewilder August 18, 2015 at 1:49 am

      WAY off. But good try.

      • ladybugavenger August 18, 2015 at 9:38 am

        I only make the comment because there was an old man who had a medical episode recently, not only was his car in disrepair, the cops.sited him too……maybe the cops have learned to hold back on their violations in certain situations. There are alot of rollovers in the last 7 days…..be careful out there driving everyone!!!

  • Dexter August 17, 2015 at 2:53 pm

    Fundraiser

  • labritton1 August 17, 2015 at 5:32 pm

    Thank you to everyone who responded and aided my sister and her family. Her husband passed out at the wheel due to a heart condition. He was awake and alert when the first responders arrived but he is in ICU right now as his heart continues to stop and start. Two of my nephews are being kept overnight with head injuries. We will not be setting up a fundraising page as we have a large family and many friends who are all willing to help if/when help is needed. This also wasn’t reckless driving, for the record. Prayers would be appreciated at this time.

    • sagemoon August 18, 2015 at 9:01 am

      Thanks for the update. I hope everyone gets out of the hospital soon and is okay.

  • mmsandie August 17, 2015 at 5:50 pm

    They had to be speeding.. You can allow 4 kids in this truck, the back seat which is not full size has on,y 2 seat belts, we own the same truck.. Maybe the driver was distracted, we realize the road was just surfaced and cleared on the side, there is no obstructions, so the driver was distracted.. And too many people in the vehicle.. Weather was good, so figure it out.. Feel sorry for the children when the adults make the wrong decisions..

    • labritton1 August 17, 2015 at 7:26 pm

      Driver was not distracted, he passed out. But thank you for your concern and your misplaced speculation. May you live a life where no ailment befalls you while you’re driving.

      • CaliGirl August 17, 2015 at 9:06 pm

        I must apologize MMSandie. We’ve tried to have her permanently barred from her computer keyboard as it is cruel and unusual punishment to read her babble. Prayers for the driver, wife and family.

        • Dexter August 18, 2015 at 10:30 am

          CALIHAG. sorry stupid but you don’t have any say about who posts on any of these articles or this website… blowhard. LOL.!

    • gunpro28 August 17, 2015 at 10:14 pm

      Its cute that you know what happened and you were not even there. You must be very special. You should read fortunes and pick lottery numbers for people since you see so much. Or just stick to your soap operas and crossword puzzles detective.

  • mmsandie August 17, 2015 at 5:51 pm

    People who take medicine or heart problems shouldn,t be driving, my daughter has heart problems, and was told not to drive, so many people take medicines and read or don,t read the labels,, and drive.. Why wasn,t the wife driving if the husband has heart problems????

    • Jordan G August 17, 2015 at 6:45 pm

      He didn’t know he had heart problems… this was the first sign

    • CaliGirl August 17, 2015 at 9:08 pm

      MMSandie, put down the keyboard! In fact, take all the electronics out and place in the trash bin. Do everyone a favor.

      • Dexter August 18, 2015 at 10:27 am

        CALIHAG put down the keyboard infact. take all the electronics and place them in the trash. and then sit down and shut up stupid

    • gunpro28 August 17, 2015 at 10:19 pm

      And people with brain injuries shouldn’t be allowed to use a keyboard. Reckless acusations and assumptions…90 days in preschool and a $30,000 fine!

    • kyleewilder August 18, 2015 at 1:32 am

      Hello there. My name is Kylee. I’m “the wife”. You know, the one who should’ve been driving due to my husbands “heart problems”. First of all, he doesn’t have heart problems. He’s never had an issue in his life. His heart has always been perfectly healthy. He has never passed out before. EVER. He’s never had any health issues at all. Even the doctor today said that his heart seems to be perfect…no issues evident during the ultrasound or cardiac catheterization…other than his heart stopping for no reason and causing him to pass out. They decided to place a pacemaker. I just thought that if you were going to comment, you should be informed so that you don’t look so unintelligent. He was driving the speed limit. ALL SIX of us were wearing our seatbelts (yes, there are 6 seat belts in the truck, but your assumptions are super cute). That’s the only reason we were all able to walk away, two of the kids without any injuries at all (you know, other than a bit of SEATBELT burn). And the only reason I’m even giving your comments the time of day is because I have i-can’t-sleep-because-I’m-the-mom-of-injured-kids syndrome. Thanks so much for causing me more upset on this very traumatic day (though sometimes it IS quite entertaining to see people make complete fools of themselves). Cheers.

      • sagemoon August 18, 2015 at 9:04 am

        Blessings for your family.

      • 42214 August 18, 2015 at 10:12 am

        Let me get this straight. Your husband is in ICU, 4 kids shaken up in a roll over, truck totaled, and you are compelled to debate with a bunch of presumptuos people on SG News. I think you have too much time on your hands or your priorities are a little weird.

        • Dexter August 18, 2015 at 10:34 am

          Right on 42.! She needs to get off the keyboard and get her priorities in order.. talk about ignorant. get off the keyboard and take care of the family like you’re supposed to be doing.

    • fun bag August 18, 2015 at 8:08 am

      Oh look at this little attack squad ganging up on poor Sandie. I think she’s right on the money with this one. It’s nearly unheard of for a young healthy guy with no history of problems to just have a random heart attack. Sandie usually makes no sense at all, but this one makes perfect sense. Pretty funny though y’all got a little LDS attack posse going here. I don’t crave the drama nearly as much as y’all but i think it’s hilarious 🙂

  • fun bag August 17, 2015 at 6:34 pm

    well, we glad no one was killed, but like i said before a “medical episode” is no excuse for reckless driving. I hope this guy is taken off the road so he won’t kill anyone!

    • Jordan G August 17, 2015 at 6:46 pm

      Assumptions get you no where.
      He was unaware of any heart conditions.
      This was the first sign that he had something wrong.

    • labritton1 August 17, 2015 at 7:21 pm

      Many blessings on you and yours.

    • kyleewilder August 18, 2015 at 1:39 am

      Hello there, Fun Bag. You seem to be about as cool as your name. I’m the wife/mother from this accident. I will refer you to the comment I left under the MMSANDIE post above for my reply to your comment. I hope your day was better than ours. I mean that.

      • fun bag August 18, 2015 at 8:10 am

        my day was fine, thanks.

  • labritton1 August 17, 2015 at 8:18 pm

    I know you don’t much like it when I talk about religious beliefs JD, but I gotta say this was truly a miracle. Not only did they live through this, but now we know of JR’s heart condition and that he lived through the surgery and now has a pace maker is a blessing so something more terrible could perhaps be prevented. Now we must keep our nephew in our prayers as he is hurting so badly. It’s amazing, isn’t it, that people are so quick to point fingers, cast stones, speculate and make assumptions, vocalizing ignorance that does not help anyone but have the potential to hurt many, far more than they are willing to just show a little compassion and send warm wishes/prayers. I’m sad for them.

    • fun bag August 17, 2015 at 8:41 pm

      You must be new to the site. 99% of accidents like this reported on here are caused by pure idiocy or negligence, so really you shouldn’t be casting judgement on us for judging, seeing as you’re new here and all. The worst part about it is if it was a mormon that did it they usually get off scot- free even if the victim was killed. Like I said we’re all glad for you, but you best not be too prideful about the whole thing bc there are two sides to it…

      • cloverut August 18, 2015 at 7:39 am

        You must be a special kind of stupid. It has been said many times that the man DID NOT KNOW he had a medical condition! What don’t you understand? God forbid you should be driving (which I think is questionable considering your lack of intelligence) and have a seizure or some other medical condition that you are unaware of that causes an accident. Bet you change your ignorant tune then. By the way, this family is grateful, not prideful, that they are all safe and the driver’s medical condition was promptly taken care of. Hope you have a wonderful day.

        • ladybugavenger August 18, 2015 at 12:47 pm

          Hey fun bag, you were called special ;)… I have to say it was like one day came and there were “medical episodes” categorized in accidents. And we were left with, what??? Cuz all accidents are a medical episode in there own right, its either mental ( not paying attention/distracted) physical ( heart attack/ medicinal) and then your good ole dui’s.( could be caused by depression)

        • Dexter August 20, 2015 at 9:49 pm

          Hey CLOVERNUT you must be a special kind of stupid. EH.?

      • kyleewilder August 18, 2015 at 7:44 am

        The only “pure idiocy” around here is yours.

        • 42214 August 18, 2015 at 1:52 pm

          Kylee, give us updates on the well being of your family when you’re not too busy jousting with fun bag. Again, weird priorities.

      • fun bag August 18, 2015 at 8:13 am

        meh, I’m tired of people using these “medical episodes” as an excuse for poor driving. If you’re not able to drive safely then please do us all afavor and stay off the roads

        • cloverut August 18, 2015 at 2:12 pm

          Since you obviously cannot read, why don’t YOU do us all a favor and stay off the roads? Meh, I’m tired of people who cannot read and ASSUME they know all of the details of an accident when it’s been clearly explained that the man had no idea that he had a medical issue. His age alone does not mean that he had a medical issue that he was aware of. Many 20-somethings have had heart attacks and died. Go back to school and learn how to read and comprehend what you read. Quit stirring the pot.

    • abby August 17, 2015 at 9:23 pm

      Very sorry to hear about your family involved in the accident. Thoughts and prayers are with your family. Hopefully a speedy recovery. As far as the few idiots here that spout off without knowing any details, they like the sound of their own voice very much. Even though they have no clue, about anything. They in no way represent the majority of the readers here.

      • Dexter August 18, 2015 at 12:10 pm

        Hiya Crabby ABBEY. You come in here so you can hear yourself.? I see where people call you stupid all the time. Well it’s obvious why. hey do us a favor and go away

  • Dexter August 17, 2015 at 11:27 pm

    TRUMP FOR PRESIDENT.!!

    • abby August 18, 2015 at 9:25 pm

      You really do like the sound of your own voice, don’t you. It’s very evident to anyone who reads these comments who the stupid one here is. You and your little pal fun bag need to get a life.

      • Dexter August 19, 2015 at 12:55 pm

        You really do like the sound of your own voice don’t you.? its very evident to anyone who reads these comments who the stupid one here is. you need to get a life. and do us all a favor and go away. have a nice day. ABBYHAG

  • Chiefs Fan August 18, 2015 at 9:04 am

    It’s the same ones all the time that leave mean, hateful, judgemental comments. Shame on you! Hopefully you or your family members are never involved in anything serious because karma is a bitch.
    My thoughts are with this family, hoping for a speedy and full recovery.

    • Accountable August 18, 2015 at 1:22 pm

      It could be that all of these vile pigs — funbag, dexter, mmsandie, etc. — are actually the same person using different email accounts in order to anonymously spew their filth on STG News and give the impression there are others who actually have the same disgusting thoughts.

      I would encourage STG News to abandon email verifications and use Facebook logins going forward. I support everyone’s right to free speech; however, that right does not extend to operating under a veil of anonymity.

      I’m positive these cowardly misanthropes will not continue with their inflammatory, loathsome comments when they are forced to expose themselves and become accountable.

      • ladybugavenger August 18, 2015 at 2:58 pm

        You should read “changing the way you think” . it’s St George news comment section, a place for commenters, but vile pigs? Filthy? You don’t have to play in the mud accountable, it makes you dirty. Just skip over it, the moment you get involved it will make you angry. Of course they will be accountable, we all will. But its St George news comments section. Don’t throw mud back at em- love your enemies.

      • 42214 August 18, 2015 at 3:17 pm

        You mean like Mesman aka Nolan.

        • Dexter August 18, 2015 at 7:06 pm

          Hey can we say Nolan instead of pig.? I didn’t know that

      • fun bag August 18, 2015 at 4:29 pm

        So anyone that doesn’t share the exact opinion of “ACCOUNTABLE”is a “vile pig” or a “cowardly misanthrope”. Sounds like you are just full of hatred and have some deep rooted anger issues. You’re just upset because so many commenters on here post about the truth of things and you’re in denial about it. How about you start first– post under your real full name…

      • 42214 August 18, 2015 at 5:42 pm

        Ifd you’re going to throw pig slurs around post a photo of yourself so we can consider the source.

  • Dexter August 18, 2015 at 12:24 pm

    Oh yes I’m so hurt because my fellow human beings cannot all agree on anything. my heart grows weary. but still I remain hopeful that each of us will love and respect each other. our ability to love and respect each other will make the earth a better place for all of us. We can support each others ideas and differences in harmony and respect and make all our lives better and in turn make society a loving and caring community.. Just one more thing. hey …* I hope you all have a wonderful day… Bless you all.!

        Better yet, who’s the editor?

      Anyways, Dex is right 🙂 Can’t we all just get along? 🙂 🙂

      • Dexter August 18, 2015 at 7:04 pm

        She edited the part that said. hey ABBEY. shut up stupid.!

  • fun bag August 18, 2015 at 4:39 pm

    hey KYLEEWILDER, you know if you didn’t come off as so nasty and mean maybe you would get a better reception here. You came on here in full attack mode what did you think was gonna happen? Hopefully you’re a more pleasant person in real life but I doubt it– you just seem so mean and arrogant…

  • cloverut August 19, 2015 at 7:29 am

    Hey FUN BAG! I thought that KYLEEWILDER was actually quite restrained in her comments, considering that you were the first one to assume you knew what was happening and posted the following:

    fun bag August 17, 2015 at 1:04 pm · Log in to Reply
    citation for reckless driving and endangerment. Minimum 90 days suspended license and $2500 fine

    Despite being told numerous times that 1) he wasn’t driving recklessly 2) he did NOT know he had a medical condition, you and other ‘know-it-alls’ continued to harp on the fact that he should not have been driving due to a medical condition and also insinuated that he intentionally put his family’s and other’s lives at risk. Imagine this scenario: You are in god health, even recently ran an Ironman marathon. You have no known medical issues that would prevent you from driving a vehicle. So you get in your car to go to work/shopping/whatever. You are driving the speed limit and obeying all of the rules of the road. The next thing you know, you are hanging upside in your car due to a rollover that was caused because your heart stopped and you passed out. Thankfully you’re alive and no one else was injured. Do YOU think you shouldn’t have been driving because you had a medical condition?

    Instead of ignorantly judging someone, even when being told the truth, perhaps you should walk (drive) a mile in their shoes.

    KYLEEWILDER had every right to defend her situation, but she should not have HAD to do so. But she is a nice person who responded to hatred and criticism in a civil manner. Kudos to her and shame on you!

    • fun bag August 19, 2015 at 5:44 pm

      The only thing I’ve seen from you and all the other new commenters is hostility and rage and calling everyone “vile pigs”. What did you expect coming on here in full attack mode? Some common manners and respect go a long way, and you sir have neither…

  • Dexter August 19, 2015 at 8:29 am

    Hey CLOVER…. Blah Blah Blah and so on and so on and yada yada this and yada yada that… Yawwwwwwwwwwn already…

    • cloverut August 19, 2015 at 12:01 pm

      I guess you just spout nonsense when presented with facts that you can’t dispute. Close your mouth DEXTER. Your ignorance and childishness is showing.

      • Dexter August 19, 2015 at 10:37 pm

        Blah blah blah yada yada this and yada yada that already Yawwwwwn. Ho hum….

  • Accountable August 19, 2015 at 10:58 am

    I feel terribly for this family, as well as many others, who have had to endure their childish vitriol. This family has been very patient and gracious in their responses and it is commendable that they are trying to set the record straight. Management of the opinions/lies of this gang of misanthropes — funbag, dexter, mmsandie, ladybugavenger, 42214 — does not warrant the time of people who have productive lives, loving families and friends. Furthermore, I’m sure the STG News staff has had their hands full with moderating this gang.

    I will direct my energy into convincing STG News to change its account policy to require a Facebook login only. The STG News is a wonderful source of information; however, it and this area is being portrayed as infested with crazies due to this group’s constant stream of malice.

    • cloverut August 19, 2015 at 11:58 am

      Accountable – I totally agree with you. It’s such a bad reflection on our Utah society that people feel they must twist facts in order to make themselves look intelligent. If they had one iota of knowledge or even half a brain, they would not have to resort to juvenile comments such as, “Blah Blah Blah and so on and so on and yada yada this and yada yada that… Yawwwwwwwwwwn already”

      I hope you’re successful in your attempt to convince STG News to require FB logins only.

      • Accountable August 19, 2015 at 12:50 pm

        Thank you CLOVERUT

      • ladybugavenger August 19, 2015 at 1:11 pm

        It’s a news stories, they don’t usually come with facts. It’s just a snapshot of what happened and that’s what makes the news fun to comment on. One shouldnt believe everything in the news. People can’t handle the truth, so the news prints what it wants for a story. You all getting riled up and taking comments as a personal attack is outrageous. Fun bag’s comment has been on other stories reported as ” medical episodes” and so have mine and others. The news doesn’t print all the facts. We comment on what the news prints. We are all just lucky that we weren’t killed or our friend or family member wasn’t killed by someone having a “Medical episode” , it would still be involuntary manslaughter if someone was killed by the vehicle of a driver having a “medical episode.” Be safe out there!

        • cloverut August 19, 2015 at 2:11 pm

          My last comment on this is that LADYBUGAVENGER, FUNBAG, and all others who think commenting on tragic stories with false fact is fun (It’s just a snapshot of what happened and that’s what makes the news fun to comment on. ) are just pathetic losers who have nothing to do all day but attack innocent people. Tapping out of conversing with this group of hateful, poor excuses for human beings. I truly hope none of you ever have something like this happen to you, but then again, Karma’s watching.

          • ladybugavenger August 19, 2015 at 4:32 pm

            OK clover, you obviously don’t know me and are judging me. Shame on you!

          • ladybugavenger August 19, 2015 at 4:36 pm

            And clover, the real tragedy would be if someone was killed. Look this dude was blessed! He found out he had a heart condition, no one died, no one was killed. You don’t know me clover, yet you somehow think you do….this wasn’t a tragedy, this was a blessing.

          • ladybugavenger August 19, 2015 at 4:42 pm

            Watch out for karma clover, it goes both ways You called me hateful and a poor excuse for human being. I hope you don’t have a “medical episode” and kill someone. Blessings clkver

          • ladybugavenger August 19, 2015 at 4:53 pm

            You probably should have just kept your comment to yourself: “are just pathetic losers who have nothing to do all day but attack innocent people” the only people attacking are you and accountable and the wife/mother. Maybe, you all should have sg news print an article on what the medical episode was…..they are getting more common in St george- enlighten us! Again this was not tragedy, it was a blessing he found out he had a heart condition and it can be fixed, everyone else will heal, the vehicle can be replaced……no one innocent was killed! Blessing!!!

          • fun bag August 19, 2015 at 5:04 pm

            watch out clover, pride is one of the sins that will get you expelled from the celestial kingdom…

  • fun bag August 19, 2015 at 5:01 pm

    Wow! Some of these new commenters that come on here randomly are truly mean, angry, and hateful people. We tried to be civil in our discussion but they just came around to attack everyone with all their hate and intolerance. I think karma will catch up to them

    I just wanted to make a simple point. Why is Kylee taking the time to explain or justify what happened to a bunch of strangers on a silly comment page consumed by bored people with nothing to do. Myself included. If my spouse was in ICU, my 4 children traumatized in a roll-over which totalled the truck I wouldn’t be arguing with Fun Bag or anyone else. Am I the only one that thinks this is a weird waste of her time?

    • fun bag August 19, 2015 at 5:34 pm

      She’s probably addicted to her hand held device and social media. Even mormons are not immune to this addiction…

    • ladybugavenger August 19, 2015 at 5:38 pm

      Amen

    • Dexter August 19, 2015 at 6:00 pm

      42214 I agree with you 100 percent. plain and simple.. her family has been completely traumatized by a very tragic accident and she’s on here arguing with FUN BAG..?

    • Dexter August 19, 2015 at 6:03 pm

      AMEN to that

  • Dexter August 19, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    It hurts my heart to see my fellow brothers and sisters being mistreated and disrespected by rude and insensitive ignorant self centered people like NONACCOUNTABLE and CLOVERNUT that come in here and think this is their private domain and that no other human being has the right to their feelings and thoughts this is absolutely mind boggling that someone could treat another human being like this. I will pray for my fellow brothers and sisters and hope their wounded hearts heal from the tragic onslaught of insults and disrespectful verbal attacks on them from NONACCOUNTABLE and CLOVERNUT. I. will keep them both in my prayers and hope that they both see the errors of their ways and accept the open hand of the Lord and accept the way of righteousness and begin to see the light… I open my heart to the misguided and assist them in becoming better members of society.. Bless them both..

      Dexter, that was beautiful. Your love for your fellow brother and sister is truly inspiring. I think you’re Prophet material.

      • Dexter August 20, 2015 at 4:31 pm

        Your praise is very uplifting and rewarding and puts me in good standing with the ultimate creator.. and I also DO NOT require 10 % of your income to continue my work. Well I’m my way to Subway to celebrate Warren Jeffs birthday

          Hey and if your feeling brave, try coming to Washington state. We’d be happy to teach you and your plural-marrying, child-molesting, cousin-pumping, evil-pretending-to-be-righteous friends a good lesson.

    • fun bag August 20, 2015 at 5:24 pm

      I was also very moved and felt blessed by dexters prayer. The holy ghost is strong within him

      • fun bag August 20, 2015 at 5:25 pm

        amen

        • Dexter August 20, 2015 at 5:45 pm

          LOL.! you almost forgot to say AMEN.!…… that was. close. I’ve seen people turned into frogs and lizards for doing that..

  • 42214 August 19, 2015 at 6:44 pm

    Cloverrut, Abby, Accountable, anyone else, wanna chime in here. I actually am a little suspect when I see someone acting so “out of the norm” when dealing with an obvious family tragedy. PS: I had Filet Mignon with saute’d mushrooms and a baked potatoe for dinner. It’s on my facebook page with pictures of my boat, Harley, and Lexus.

  • 42214 August 20, 2015 at 9:19 am

    Apparently clovernut, Abby, or unaccountable have nothing to say. What a surprise.

    From dad/driver,

    I would like to express my gratitude to all of the first responders, strangers, and medical staff who provided amazing treatment. We have all been released from the hospital, and have made the trip home to Tooele. We all have some bumps and bruises, but we will make it. This really has been a blessing, I know this happened so I could learn of my heart issues and have them addressed.
    I am now jealous of the St George community, you you have all shown an amazing amount of love and support. I know there are the minority of people who enjoy sharing their option, but I have learned long ago not to argue with these type of people as they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
    St. George, don’t worry the rotten apple have not spoiled the bushel as I am now in love with your community!
    I truly hope one day I will be able to return your kind love you provided my family.

    • fun bag August 20, 2015 at 1:33 pm

      i was reading through and was gonna say i’m glad for you and good luck, but you just had to put that little snub in at the end…really? well whatever… anyways, good luck…

    • sagemoon August 20, 2015 at 3:33 pm

      I’m glad to hear you all are well.

    • ladybugavenger August 20, 2015 at 8:00 pm

      The rotten apple, was it clovernut? I’m sorry about him, I tried to explain this was a blessing, I’m glad you are all released and doing well.

    • Accountable August 22, 2015 at 4:08 pm

      It’s great to hear that you and your family are healthy and in good spirits!

      This site, regrettably, has its gang of incredibility unintelligent trolls; however, as you’ve noted, our community has many more wonderful, caring, intelligent people which is the reason we love it here!

  • Dexter August 20, 2015 at 4:22 pm

    While you’re driving home maybe you should try taking some time and effort to get your wife to get her priorities straight and then have her apologize to FUN BAG for being so rude to him…. I hope you’re okay FUN BAG

    • gunpro28 September 4, 2015 at 12:57 am

      Being from another state I always though that Utah was a beautiful place filled with wonderful people. But I realize after reading all the comments that it’s really just another place filled with insensitive … who are only brave behind their keyboards. I’m sure if you (or the other d-bags here) were face to face with the people involved in this story, you wouldn’t have much to say. At least not much that wouldn’t get your … stomped. Coward.

    I’m just thrilled for everyone.
