On May 13, 2017, Brian Lee, Aaron Lee, and Stephanie Swaim were stopped in traffic that was backed up due to a brake fire on a car carrier when they were rear-ended by a distracted semi-truck driver. Their car was pushed underneath the flat bed semi ahead of them.

It caught fire, and Brian, Aaron, and Stephanie, as well as the truck driver, were killed at the scene.

Brian Lee was a hard-working, devoted father who loved spending time with his family. He loved God, hunting, and fishing. His belly laugh and smile filled a room. His love for God and family will always be remembered.

Aaron Lee was kindhearted and intelligent. He was a warm-natured person who loved to make people laugh. He was an old soul intent on helping others in need. Aaron gave the best bear hugs and was a wonderful big brother to his four younger siblings.
