The family of a Dayton man who died in a crash last year in Ohio were enjoying a weekend vacation when they lost touch with him and he passed away.
It’s been three weeks since a father and his son were traveling to their hometown of Indianapolis, Indiana, when the accident occurred, NBC affiliate WISH-TV reported.
“It’s like you’re in a dream, but you don’t really have control,” said the family’s pastor, Richard Breen, who is working with the family on their recovery.
“I want to say that they’ve really worked really hard,” he added.
The pastor said the couple was visiting family and friends and that they were doing well.
They were also enjoying a family vacation with friends in Indianapolis, he said.
On Thursday, the family received a text message from the driver of a silver SUV.
It was from their son, who had texted them moments earlier saying he was OK and that his car was in the shop, the WISH report said.
The father went to the shop to pick up some keys.
He saw his son lying on the ground, the station reported.
The driver got out of the car and called 911, police said.
It took firefighters to revive him.
He died at the scene, WISH said.
The car was recovered.
The crash remains under investigation, the Dayton Daily News reported.
