I'm the grand daughter of the man that died and it was not suicide. He died from a heart attack which caused him to drive in the road. I do think you shouldn't write anything assuming things.

Just as well the police actually investigate all serious traffic accidents rather than just make assumptions- which can be completely wrong.

So sorry for your loss Bonnie Louise. I hope you have many fond memories of your Grandad - they will never be lost.
