Barney Fatally Wounded in Car Crash


Ethan Murch, Author

Barney, a kid’s show star, was fatally wounded in a car crash. He was driving back home from work on a lonely Tuesday night when his car got T-boned by someone who ran a red light. Both cars were totaled in the accident.

Emergency services arrived as soon as possible to get the two out of their cars, but the man’s car burst into flames. They managed to get the man out, but Barney was stuck in his car. Firefighters attempted to pry open the door, and others sprayed the fire attempting to neutralize it. Then, the engine exploded, killing a firefighter that was trying to open the door and Barney. His death is a heartbreaking reminder of how fragile life can be and how quickly things can change.

The man who crashed into him now faces up to 25 years in prison and a $350,000 fine. He will be in court on Monday.
