Family and friends gather to remember Daryl Brown and urge young people to slow down
Family and friends gathered to remember Daryl Brown on what would have been his 20th birthday. Brown died Monday after smashing in to tree so violently it split his car in two. As investigators determine why Brown slammed in to the tree, their thinking is that he was going extremely fast down Fond Du Lac near Roosevelt.
His loved ones want the young people to slow down.
"I just need them to slow down, I just need them to slow down, and not just them, everybody," said William Brown, Daryl's father.
Family members say Daryl was on his way to work to pick up some extra hours so he could help support his twin babies that are on the way.
The medical examiner's report said Brown may have been going as fast as 75 miles per hour.
Whatever the speed, his car was pulverized.
"I'm not saying my Grandson was speeding because we don't know, but something must have distracted him that caused him to have an accident," said Majorie Jordan, Daryl's Grandmother.
On Wednesday, what would have been his 20th birthday, instead of celebrating, family and friends are grieving.
"Everything's gonna be alright, everything's gonna be alright," William Brown said.
Daryl Brown was one of 11 siblings and step siblings. A GoFundMe page was set up to help family members pay the mounting expenses.
