But last night, October 1st my parents Lee-Felisha Hall and my sister Madison Grace were on there way home from Charleston Speedway last night when they were hit head on by a drunk driver,” Lee Joseph said in a Facebook post. “I’m very heartbroken and at a loss for words to say that they sadly all succumbed to injuries sustained in the accident. Prayers and thoughts are needed for me and my family during this extremely difficult time. I love you all ❤️”
