About 5:00 pm, I was at home with the kids. I did not work on
10-04-96. Tracy came home from work, in Mason city, around 6:30 pm. It
was planned that Tracy and I would go to Broosters with some friends.
We got ready between 6:30 and 7:30 pm. then we left the house around 7:30-

later that his light was green.
After the accident I do no remember too much. I remember Tracy had
blood running down his face. I remember a man talking to Tracy but I do
not know who it was. Next thing I remember is being in the ambulance and
