LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)— Employees of Digby's Pub and Patio are remembering the man who died in the crash on U.S. 52 and state road 28.
William "Eric" Peacock was a well-known musician who played at open mic nights at Digby's Pub and Patio. Peacock was helping Kimberly McDole and Robert Carley move a disabled car on U.S. 52.
Police believe the three people were hit by 18-year-old Yariel Lunice Nicole Butler from Lafayette. Carley was released from the hospital while Tippecanoe County Sheriff's Sergeant Couch said Mcdole is in critical condition but is stable.
Peacock died Wednesday morning.
"He was always just someone who everyone could talk to," said Sloan. "Peacock was always talking to everybody he could have a conversation with anyone."
Sloan said the music he played and the memories he made are how employees are remembering him.
"I think it's going to be good because people will come together but it's also going to be sad."
Digby's open mic night will be Thursday night at 8 PM. The owner said they will be hosting a donation night next week to help with funds for the family.
