    Wow. It really hurts me to read such hateful comments. I loved this boy. He was such a good friend to me. How can you put all the blame on him when the driver of the truck was driving dangerously slow and the roads were wet? I was in an accident and luckily survived. It happened in the day time and I was being extremely cautious. You people that sit behind your computers posting ugly comments should find better things to do with your time. Please be considerate of the people who were affected by the loss of Logan. Thanks.

    I do not know this family, but my heart goes out to them. May God be with them. Again to the news internet sites--when someone dies in an accident or other incident, there are so many cruel people out there, it would be better to not allow any posts to be made on the articles in respect to the families so they do not have to read the unnecessary remarks.

    We had the privilege of watching this young man grow up. He was a fine young man from an outstanding family. Our hearts truly grieve for these good people. God bless the Dagefordes. Harold and Dawn

    To Dog: I've known this guy since i was in the second grade. He was an amazing person. I hope you realize what you have posted for the entire internet to read. I am sure that however this happened he didn't do it on purpose (hence the word accident). His family is driving back to Montgomery as i type this message. Think before you do something like that. A message like that has the potential to hurt thousands of people.

      You are SUCH a heartless person. A 21 year old loses his life when a semi is on the road still driving after blowing 2 tires (he should have never been on the road in the first place after blowing tires) and all you have to say is pay attention when driving? You need to grow a heart and realize that a young life was lost and families and friends affected, ESPECIALLY since you do not know the details of the accident.

    I have driven in all the lower 48. I have driven both automobiles and semi's. I have driven in whiteout conditions, blizzards, ice and snow, rain and flooded highways, and sandstorms. The one thing you can do to stay alive is to slow down. I was caught in a blizzard in Phoenix and slowed down. There were cars upside-down in the median, jackknifed big rigs, whatever! They would still be on the road if they slowed down. Thanks.

    I heard that there wasn't any details on the crash so far and it seems the reporter wasn't able to get close up but here is an update of what I saw earlier. On my way home this evening, I saw the damage of the accident. It wasn't even a mile from the Aucilla exit. It was a small red car and a white and red semi truck that was parked to the side further down but it had a dent in the back of the truck. At that time, law enforcement officials weren't on the seen but two people from two other semi trucks were directing traffic. The car was completely totaled! It was smashed in on the front, the roof was completely torn off and hanging to the right side. It's tragic that the crash was fatal and my heart goes out to the family of those involved.

      Y'all need to take into consideration that this was a human life and with that human life came a huge network of family, friends, and support. Y'all have no idea the cause, circumstances, etc. and you should be ashamed at your ease in passing judgment.
