    Aaron williams was a good friend of mine. When i went to look a the area my self I came to realize that the brick wall AJ hit was acctually a sighn for the ”MASONIC TEMPLE” 410 university blvd. It dose not look like he was comeing around the bend in the rd and lost controll because of speed the bend is not that sharp, maybe he fell asleep and or got to close to the curb and jumpd it, speed still maybe a factor but its just strange that he hit a ”MASONIC TEMPLE” sighn the ”SHAITAN” was most deff in the car with them that night.
