James, his brother and two other friends were on their way to a family party after having a good day at FuelFest. On their way back from Tooele the tire of the vehicle blew out and the driver lost complete control of the car causing them to roll over a few times onto the other side of the freeway, which led the car to flames. His brother and friends got out of the car with minor injuries, but James was unresponsive, most likely unconscious due to head injury. Once James's older brother got out he began looking for James. He tried pulling him out of the vehicle , but James was unresponsive and couldn't react to his older brother. Unfortunately the firefighters couldn't save James on time and he died on scene.
James was the happiest kid anyone knew he was the most funniest, outgoing, and genuinely caring person. He loved for his friends and family so much. We'd like to ask you guys for your prayers and donation, anything would help his family get through this experience.
