He was a young man with lofty ambitions and a huge heart. He was and continues to be deeply loved by his family and those close to him. “His absence leaves a hole that can never be filled,” she said in a statement to the station.

According to officials, eight others were injured, including the bus driver, when the bus collided with Benson’s SUV, fled the road, and flipped near Alabama Highway 53 and Pinedale Road.
