"It was just a horrific accident. A horrific accident. My brother thought someone was stealing his truck, never realized it was Logan because he didn't live down here all the time, he lived with my mom and dad," Trammell's aunt Tammy Jacobs explained. "And he was supposed to be in the bed."
A singer and songwriter, Trammell had dreams of becoming a country music star. He shared his passion for music with his father, who actually happened to be recording music at the time of the incident.
“He’d never come and gotten one of his dad’s vehicles before, and his dad was out in his little shop, the little camper beside his shop….and he was recording [music], and he thought someone was stealing his truck, when he saw his truck going up the driveway,” Jacobs continued. “And he shot and hollered, and he said it sped up, and he shot toward the truck again, and it’s dark, and he said, ‘I shot toward the tailgate, and the truck stopped.’ And he said, ‘I walked up there, you know, hollering, ‘get out.’ I didn’t know who was in my truck,’ and still never realized that it was Logan, until he got the door open, and he realized who it was.”
