Alamance County, NC-- Last week we told you the tragic story about a drunk driver that ruined the life of Good Samaratan Carl Wheeler and killed 17 year-old Darren Jones.
What did the Wheeler family get from the driver? A court ordered $1,400 and no apology served with a pile of debt.
The family has medical bills to pay and as a result, have fallen behind on rent and other bills. Carl's mom, Esther, quit her job to take care of him night and day. His sister, Cassandra, is now working to support Carl, Esther, and her family.
Community members have shown great compassion for this family and have united to pledge money and services for the Wheelers.
