Rickey Smithwas his name who was killed last Thursday night in a multi-car highway wreck in Oklahoma. Mr. Smith was on I-240 just outside Oklahoma City when, according to reports, another man driving the wrong way on the interstate slammed head-on into his vehicle. Cops say the other driver was hospitalized and booked for DUI which is what mostly always happens for some reason.
Rickey competed on the second season of 'Idol,' and finished in eighth place. The teddy bear Ruben Studdard took the title that year. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Rickey was 36.
