While riding with his sister and brother-in-law they hit a car full of college students who had swerved into their lane. The students were returning from a football game in Columbus, Georgia, driving back to their campus in Auburn. Four students were killed along with Frank and his sister Sarah, who was 8 months pregnant at the time. Two other students and Sarah's husband were seriously injured but survived.
