NORCROSS, Ga. - Police now believe another car may have been involved in the c rash that killed a Norcross High School basketball player and three of his family members.
Police are still investigating after a family attorney says paint from another car was found on the wrecked vehicle.
Four members of the same family were killed in the crash near Ocala, Fla.
Darrian George, a Norcross High School basketball player, was behind the wheel last weekend driving the family of seven to Miami for vacation.
Police initially said Darrian lost control, but now say they're looking into whether another car was involved.
Darrian, who had recently been offered three college scholarships to play basketball, was among the four that were killed in crash.
"I wish I was like him, put it like that. I'm not a bad individual but I wish I was like him," said his father, Curtis George.
Curt's youngest son, Kaden, also died. He would have been four this week. His daughter Kie was killed, as well as his wife, Tiffany Bradshaw George.
"She made me from a man to super man," said Curtis George.
George remembered the fun times they had.
"We used to have this thing where I'd say, ‘I'll be the kid today and you be the grown up.' It was just love all around," said Curtis George. "If I had one wish it would be for everybody to be sitting here today. Nothing else."
In addition to Curtis George, two others survived the crash, including his mother-in-law, who is still in critical condition and his daughter Jade.
A fund has been set up to help this family with four burials.
Friends have set it up at Chase Bank under the estate of Tiffany Bradshaw George.
