    I don't know if the 2nd brother to die knew that the 1st had, I'll update once I find out.

    Wow. Not very far from where I'm at. Prayers go out to the Kerr family, among others.

    How horrible for the parents and family. My thoughts and prayers go out to them.

    A bad story turned worse...wow.

    The accidents were no more than 100 yards apart, said the Kerrs' mother, Nancy Kerr.

    The story needed to say if the 2nd knew about the 1st's death.
    That could have been a factor in the 2nd crash - speeding to get to family, etc.

    It's pretty fucked up that the wife went to the scene of the accident to "reassure herself that her husband wasn't involved, only to find out he was killed."
    I can't even imagine finding out your spouse died like that.
    Also, would the other brother really have been going to the accident site if it was 2 hours earlier?

    According to the competing newspaper, that apparently was a factor.


    "Jeremy found out about it, and he went racing to the scene of the accident to see if he could help his brother," Randy Kerr said.

    State police said Jeremy Kerr was speeding and not wearing a helmet when he crashed into the rear of a minivan around 10:30 p.m.

    "He died 100 feet from where my other brother died, in traffic that was sitting and waiting because of the first accident," Randy Kerr said.

    Randy Kerr said Jeremy was buying his motorcycle from Steven, who had received it in a will from a friend who died in a crash on the same bike.

    "I don't know why Steve crashed. Jeremy's crash was just ... because he didn't understand motorcycles. He didn't know what he was doing," Randy Kerr said.
