My wife called me about the same thing (on the news this morning). They reported a Samir Patel, age 26 in the wreck. I don't know Samir's last name but I believe him to be a wee bit older than 26

Looks like maybe a mustang wheel on the blue car.

But please post!!

Here is the story and video from WHNT.com. I hope he is ok, the story woke me from a dead sleep when I heard his name.

I think Samir's last name is Dargy (Sp). But he's not 26.

I didn't hear the last name or the age. A google search of Samir Patel kicks out a guy that graduated from Huntsville High in 04

Samir's last name is xxxxx. I freaked out too, especially when I called and he didn't answer. Samir, put our minds at ease and say something, bro...or call somebody...do something for peace of mind.

skibumwrx called me early this morning to see if I was still alive. It was a strange question, but I was half asleep, so I said yes, and he said there was a story about two kids racing in Arab and one dieing named Samir. I wish he would have posted here confirming I'm alright. I had no idea how many people would be concerned about my welfare. My phone has been ringing about every 10 minutes for a few hours now.

I want to thank everyone for the heartfelt concern and for checking up on me. I had no idea I had this many friends in this world, and I can only imagine what it will be like the day I actually am gone, which hopefully won't be any time soon. Crazy as it sounds, I actually already have some provisions in place for when I am gone as HCS funding is tied to my retirement savings account so the site won't go down, and my brother is an administrator on here so he will be able to continue to maintain the site.

I've woken up and am working to return calls/voicemails/texts as fast as possible. Again, I want to thank everyone for the concern from the bottom of my heart.

Thank goodness your fine, Jeremy and I have had numerous phone calls and texts this morning, we kind of like you Samir and want to keep you around as long as possible. Praying for the families that did lose their loved ones.

Yeah I about freaked out this morning when they said Samir but then they said his last name was Patel and I knew that wasnt you. However I had stumbled across that facebook page in the past looking for you on FB and had seen that several of my friends are friends with him but realized it wasnt you when I saw the birth date. Some of the guys on hsvracing were friends with the owner of the mustang that died in the wreck. Apparently the other mustang that was racing just kept going...I dunno if I could go on living with something like that on my concious. Very sad day. My mom actually called me last night to make sure it wasnt me when she heard it on the news.

I heard the news this morning on my way in and when they gave the age, I knew it not to be "our" Samir. Then one of my buddies called me asking if I heard about the wreck and I told them it was not him as well.

My heart does go out to the families involved. It sounds like there was a car traveling the wrong direction and although the two cars were racing, it may not have made any difference. I also heard that the car traveling in the wrong direction may not have had their lights on.

Very tragic indeed. I'm saddened by the event, but I am thankful that it was not my good friend Samir who was involved.

Never forget to tell those around you what they mean to you, especially family and close friends. You never know when you'll wake up and never see them again.

Well said. The best assessment of the situation I've read so far.

The public is running away with the suspected racing aspect of the story, and haven't considered that the same outcome might have happened if it was just a single car traveling normally. My parents found about about this first hand when they were hit head-on a couple of years ago on 72:

My deepest condolences go out to both families. I've only met 4 other Samir's in my life with the same spelling as my name. And they were all good people like me. I may have even met this Samir once.
