First Thread. Hate To Post it Here.

Hey everybody. I'm Jim Barnett. Mustang guys may know my brother, Brad Barnett, since he created TheMustangSource.com.

Anyway, I wanted to have an introduction when I finished my car but a guy I know had a wreck tonight and lost his life. He's my friend's cousin and I've never known him to race, or even mod his cars at all, but I guess it just takes one time right?

Here's the story: Wreck in Arab

I went to school with him, but didn't really know him that well, we spoke a few times when I had my Mustang. RIP.

A handful of my friend's knew Samir Patel. He graduated high school a few years ahead of me. What a shame...and very scary.

Be safe everyone.

Hey Jim, nice to see you on here. I hate to hear about Samir's death in this tragic wreck, and my thoughts and prayers are with his family.

A lot of confusion has surrounded this accident as the site owner for Huntsville Car Scene is also named Samir. Many people called me this morning searching for information about the wreck and had assumed that both your friend and this site owner were the same person.

Its a tragic thing that this accident happened. I do not know details about the accident, but what I did hear was that there were two mustangs racing, and one hit the toyota camry that Samir Patel was driving head on. I also heard the other mustang didn't stop after the accident. I'm not 100% on what actually happened in the accident so don't quote me on it.

Yeah, he graduated the year after me at Huntsville High. So sad.

Hey Jay, I saw the updates on Facebook. I knew it would wreak havoc if I said Samir in my post so I left that out.

Apparently Samir Patel was driving a Camry or Corolla with his lights off and drifted into one of the oncoming Mustangs. Witnesses say the other Mustang was red but that's the only description I've heard.

I hate that you've had to post this as well. In all the reading I had to do since people thought I was the Samir in the story, it seems like Devon was a really nice guy that had a level head, a gear head dad, and no siblings. Very sad to hear him pass away, regardless of how it might have happened.

I looked at his Facebook page and from the pictures he seems like a gear head and a good guy. I probably should have clarified in my original post that it wasn't you, but I was just going through motions at that point.

I think we all knew what you meant. These are tough times for those close to the tragedy, so I can understand your current state.

I was mistaken about Devon being an only child.... he did have a sister. She resides in Huntsville.


Went by and looked at the scene in detail just a moment ago. That was an unbelievable impact. It removed a fair amount of pavement from the blacktop in the left lane of the North bound lane just half a mile or so from our house. Devon's viewing is open casket and from 6-8 tomorrow in Arab.

Devon was a great guy. Idk anyone that didn't like him. He could make anyone laugh. Here is his 03 Kenne Bell Sonic Blue Termi right after he got it during the summer.

Such a terrible loss. I'm sure I met him at some point. Terrible that I met both the people involved in this tragedy.
