Tom Atkinson was only 19, he wasn’t known for making the best decisions. One Wednesday night he’d make the final decision of his short life.
Tom and a friend had been out drinking and had trouble finding a taxi. Tom decided he’d be OK to drive – he wasn’t. Tom simply didn’t see the corner coming. His car left the road and collided with a tree. While his friend was fortunate enough to escape with his life, Tom was killed almost instantly.
