    Please update your information. This sounds as if my son Cody was at fault here as his truck was the one to make contact with the others. Fault was that of Duncan’s negligence per Madison County Sherrifs Dept. Not only was it Duncan’s fault he was uninsured so please add that in your update. Charges were not filed as there wasn’t enough evidence due to lack of detective work such as blood draw for tox screen or sobriety tests from Duncan by sherrif dept. Thank you, Aaron Hurley (Cody Hurley’s father)
