Thompson – who has two sons Will & Logan – has undergone three surgeries as well as skin grafts on his arms and legs, but he’s now sitting up and he had his breathing tube removed on Tuesday.

Family members stressed that Billy was not under the influence, and alleged it was Joseph who veered his 2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck on to the wrong side of Georgia Route 29 colliding with his 2003 Toyota 4-Runner.

Baldwin County Chief Deputy Coroner Ken Garland confirmed to the Union-Recorder that the 86-year-old Florida man died at the scene of the crash.
