    Default Yellow Driver killed in NC accident...

    Larry Parks was a road driver from Raleigh and a member of Local 391. Larry had been a road driver at Columbus, OH. before going to Raleigh on a change about 7 years ago. He ran a bid to Cincinnati and was enroute to Cincinnati when the wreck occurred late Sunday night on US 52 near Pinnacle, NC.

    I had the good fortune of knowing Larry for several years. He was a fine person and a good friend...

    God bless Larry Parks, Bonnie Jones of Mount Airy (the lady killed at the scene) and the Parks and Jones families for the tragic losses that they all have suffered...

    That was a sad article. Everything seemed to just go from bad to worse.

    Oh my gosh, it just went from bad to worse real quick. You come upon the scene, steer hard to clear it and blow a tire and then all hell breaks loose. And your last few moments on earth are spent in terror.

    And it all happens so fast. to anyone of us at anytime.

    My prayers are with those who lost the loved ones. None of us are immortal and things like this make you sit back and take notice of just how quickly life can be taken away from you...

    Terrible deal for all involved. His name rings a bell somehow. Does anybody know if he used to run STL a lot?

    He probably did Dude. He was a transfer from Columbus to Raleigh 7 years ago. I've been trying my best to remember his CB handle but I can't.

    R.I.P Brother Larry! I heard about this wreck on the radio the next morning, but it was a few days before I knew it involved a Yellow Driver.

    Larry Parks' picture is on display at the restaurant in Cinti, OH. I don't recall him too well, but know I've met him, as we do stay in the same motel down there. R.I.P. Larry Parks, my thoughts and prayers are with all of the family and friends involved. The lord works in mysterious ways.
