You couldn't find a person who worked harder than Mr. Handy.
Handy was traveling west on U.S. 80 when he rear-ended a sports utility vehicle at Gault Street.
Handy continued on U.S. 80 , crossing into the eastbound lane , and side-swiped a red Chevrolet Mustang between Gault and Zepher Road.
Handy's gray Oldsmobile then crossed back into the westbound lane before it veered again into the eastbound lane and collided head on with a black Chevrolet Cavalier driven by the 24-year-old.
The Cavalier then hit a van carrying two adults and three children.
