Then he started to look for a place to crash his car. He sat his kid out of his carseat and didn’t fasten the seatbelt on purpose. The crash happened in the morning around 11:00 am and witnesses were shocked. “There was no hitting brakes, just this horrible sound,” said someone who called 911.

Nancy, the mother, fell to the floor and started crying and screaming while she looked at her little son, who was unconscious. She is really angry about this situation, but she is glad her son is alive.  Some other witnesses said that Weitzel fought with the firefighters who were helping after the Accident and that he tried to commit suicide with a piece of glass.
