The area in the curve by the wreck site has a VERY BLIND CORNER...The shoulder is VERY NARROW @ about 18 inch's ...After the wreck i would drive by there or even just park and walk...one evening when i was at the site two guys getting off of work ran right in the same spot....The month after Shane's wreck they had a lady wreck a 3 day old mustang...TOTALED....I know of 8 wrecks in the same spot.....but the STATE will not fix the problem.......

This is my first time at uploading a pic....
This pic show the wreck site facing east and at the bottom you can see Shane's tire tracks...The car came to rest just east of those yellow railroad rails that are concreted in the ground to keep all the cars from ripping out the fence

Saturday evening, Coast Guard pinged Shane&#8217;s phone (results unknown)

June 11
Picture taken today of Shane&#8217;s vehicle show it is muddied with grass lodged in the front bumper area. Driver&#8217;s side of the front windshield is damaged but not caved in as per later pictures, and the left, driver&#8217;s side quarter panel is intact when later pictures show it to be missing.

June 12 or 13
Family found one of Shane&#8217;s shoes in the water where the wreck was. It was shown to LE that day who said they would be back to get it

June 12
Kenny advises that family conducted another search with a larger group today (Sunday). The male pipe yard employee and some of his friends on 4 wheelers helped in the search. The news media got involved and &#8220;thats when the police showed up with 4 wheelers running on the levee ... once the news media left .. the police did also. Kenny advises LE never advised family on when/where/how to search


June 13
LA State investigator went to Jake's wrecker yard to look for the insurance card and check the seatbelt .. was unable to locate an insurance card and observed the seatbelt was locked in the vertical position which investigator stated would indicate driver was not wearing seatbelt at the time of the crash


June 14

Shane&#8217;s cell phone went dead &#8220;5 days after the wreck&#8221;
