    The passenger of the truck was not 8 years old, she was 6 years old. Her names is Danielle Hope Younce and she is in Pedatric Intensive Care Unit at Cabell Huntington. I am a friend of the family and my daughter and Hope are good friends. As far as Linda, she was a wonderful person and had such a kind heart.

    Keith Perry has taken a friend from a lot of us over here.Not only Perry but the company he was operating that truck for should been investigated for more offenses.Maybe the rest of their drivers are driving under suspension.
