Alcohol Involved in Brittany Underwood's Death


Brittany Marie Underwood & John Clark Burns Jr.


A source familiar with the investigation of the Monday morning wreck in Cypress Inn, Tennessee, has stated alcohol played a major role in the crash. Brittany Marie Underwood, 25, lost her life, and a local landmark was destroyed after John Clark Burns Jr. lost control of his truck and crashed into the decades old structure. Both the store and the truck were a total loss to the ensuing fire.

Burns, also 25, had reportedly left a downtown Florence bar shortly before the accident. He remains in Vanderbilt Hospital. His Facebook page lists his employer as Turtle Point Country Club. Sources expect charges to be filed upon his release.

Let the White Ones Fly

It's dove season again. If you see a white dove, let it continue to live and fly on. These doves are used in weddings, graduations, and funerals. Their owners have a monetary interest in the fowl. Please be considerate. Thank you.

    1. People? We don't think much of Burns considering the circumstances, but we've mentioned nothing derogatory about anyone else. Yes, we also care for the innocent doves and those who feel a loss due to the building being destroyed.

    2. I have an idea. Why dont you at the very least change that horribly offensive picture. She was an absolute beautiful soul, and her memory does NOT DESERVE THIS. Have some class please

    3. Brittany underwood is an absolute beautiful soul who in no way deserves to have that classless picture plastered all over the web. How about you contain at least the most minuscule amount of decency and change it. You are so disrespectful.

    4. You do not even know Mr. Burns to be making judgment or accusation and what you think of him is a sin you will be judged for in Heaven. It matters not the circumstances of a wreck or accident. Anyone could have a seizure or pass out from a medical condition, a stroke or heart attack and have this same result. I worked with some Darbys and I knew them to be wonderful kind people who would not value material possessions over human life. My Mother got to see that store for the first time in her 82 yrs last week. She had never heard of it, I had only heard of it during the making of that film, because it was co workers family or friend and they were involved.with film but Mom said, oh my goodness I would be afraid to live there someone could miss turn and hit house!" her driver replied yes its amazing hasnt happened yet...This was a week ago!!

  2. Who are your sources? Is this an assumption because of their previous location???.

    1. No, Jordan, these are reports from Wayne County. Apologies that we couldn't publish your other comment, but it named the bar. Until we have actual copies of reports listing the bar, if they are out there, we cannot publish its name.

  3. Lol, oh so you sensor information huh? How about you consider families and stay out of it? You'd be a lot better off keeping your pathetic mouth shut. How about letting God do the judgement. You should be so ashamed reporting before having 100% accurate facts. How do you sleep at night casting so much judgement????

    1. For starters, we were asked into it by someone who was hurt in all this.

    2. *censor. You could at least be a decent person and remove the distasteful photo. That is if you know how to be a decent person....

    3. Dont think ANYONE has been hurt more than the families of these loved ones, who lost one and one who is suffering still... You sensor what you choose, yet you choose to report without facts...you have reports none of us family have. The lady above, JORDAN is brittanys first cousin, her mother and Brittany's are SISTERS and they my first cousins. The location is a dangerous area and I'm am surprised aa wreck hasnt happened before its just a tragic accident. Nothing more. AS A FAMILY MEMBER HURT BY ALL OF THIS and seeing Brits IMMEDIATE FAMILY BEING HURT BY YOU, IM ASKING YOU to GET OUT OF IT!! Many of us have asked and continuemmmMy family is HUGE! Now will you honor OUR wishes and requests as you did the person who asked you to get INTO THIS and REMOVE YOURSELF JUST As SWIFTLY???

    4. No one has "liked" your story nor made positive comments. Do you think this will help your career? Seems like its hurting it possibly destroying it in the future. Do you know her family or his? Do you know her grandparents?? Do you know her Aunts, our cousin's? Do you know our family own multiple stores and cafes in area which if damaged during accident, my family would be more concerned with the humans no matter the circumstances!!! We are not a hidden bunch !!!. We all loved Brittany and we all love Clark because Brittany did and he is fine young man. They were together 4 years not just a newly dating couple!!! My husband and I wrecked in almost identical curve, 12 hrs before Brittany and Clark also in TENN!! We had NO ALCOHOL it was just an accident but I remember passing a bar on road and most restaurants have bars but we didnt drink!! . Would you have done this to us if i had died because of a bar being down the road???? It looked boarded up. If we had hit it and exploded into fire, would you give the famous Boobie Bungalow all the attention???? Ya know , Most bars are closed on Sundays and there is cut off serving time in restaraunts. I would trade places with her in a heart beat!!!! I cannot imagine the pain Clark is in. I dont understand why she was taken when Im older and have lived, she had her whole life and was so creative and would have been a huge fashion designer one day, which is more than I could ever do and obviously more than you could do with your life also since you sit, hide behind false name and pass your judgment without facts, trial or jury. I pray for you and your family. All the little bars around downtown and those tracks just accident waiting to happen. Just wait for Karma and fate but thats not the worst, you will have To stand alone before God and explain yourself. His judgement is swift, true and final. You are breaking his commandments !! Hope you are ready

  4. You do have a cold heart! No longer a fan of Shoalanda Speaks.

  5. Please remove this post as it is hurtful to the family. Why does it matter that you are the first to report it. At least remove the picture, for God's sake. I understand people are upset but the ones most upset are those connected personally to this tragedy. If it is the truth, it will come out at a proper time & not 2 days after the event. The picture is tasteless considering the circumstances of death. Please have some sympathy & not appear inhumane. Wiggins???

  6. Shoalanda has proven how coldhearted some people are. They have no concern for what this family is going through. This is absolutely the most tasteless, inconsiderate, and heartless thing that I have seen come from one of our neighbors. I pride myself in being from an area that cares about our neighbors and fellow man. Not a building. Please have a smidgen of decency, and change the photo. I can promise her family is going through enough without having to see this horribly tasteless picture. Please

  7. What's sick in this is that this site takes sides. If you truly do your "investigative reporting" & report for someone who was affected, i.e. the building owner; you'd learn that Brittany's family is probably related to the Darby family in some distant way. I will even give you props that most of the information on this site is needed but you do not know the personal relationships there between the driver Clark Burns Jr., Brittany Underwood & the family. To not know is horrible. The state can do whatever they want but it does no public function to post that picture. It's plain hateful.

    1. Cathy, we are here to do just that...take sides. We fight for the abused and that includes Miss Underwood's family and the family that owned the store. Please read the remarks more carefully. No one is blaming Miss Underwood except for the fact she MAY have placed her faith in the wrong person.

    2. And when the tox report comes back? Some are saying let it go because he is young (he's 25). Would Miss Underwood's family want to let it go then.

      Delete
    3. If you are the family you must not have cared too much or you wouldnt be defending Burn's action. I am assuming his family is a part of the "in" crowd in this area. He is the blame, how about you take that up with him. Or how about the bar they was at that kept right on serving him booze? The picture is horrid on here, i cant argue with that. Miss Underwood did not deserve that fate. I would love to hear the details he has told ya'll about the wreck. I know what the firefighters that worked the scene heard and was told.

    4. Some family defending the burns man so much. He must be a part of the "in" family so you have to stick together even after he caused a death. You do realize that if he wouldn't have been drinking it would not have happened. Maybe part of the blame could be on the bar he was at as well, they did keep on serving the booze. Yes the picture is tacky as Miss. Underwood did not deserve this fate. You should check with wayne county volunteer fire department and check out there side of the story as well. You definately wouldn't be thinking so highly of Mr. Burns then.

    5. Hunter the photo is horrid! We think families come first. No Brittany had a wonderful life ahead of her and so does Clark. I think when you are together so long you develop a trust. I cant answer what happened because we dont know. Everyone makes mistakes at some point, the law is required to and should do whatever required or necessary per thheir laws once reports come back and families notified in any situation.

  8. A "source" familiar with the character and background of some of the "authors" of Shoalanda Speaks reports that amongst other things they are: PEDOPHILES, CONVICTED FELONS, THIEVES, SEXUAL DEVIANTS, ALCOHOLICS AND ABOVE ALL LIARS! How does it feel?

    1. Hi, avenger. Your good friend have any more sexual/abuse charges brought against him, or does the count still remain at three?

    2. Hello SCUM, charges may not have changed but convictions remain the same: ZERO! Unless you count the character smear attempted by this piece of trash blog. Glad to see you are STILL making enemies!

  9. Pigeons are released at events and are much larger than doves. They fly differently and are not mistaken at all by any real dove hunter.

  12. Going by the Wayne County paper Mr. Burns has pending charges as soon as he is released from the hospital. Maybe some one should place some blame on him. Shoalanda was just telling the truth "the picture was a little much though"... Hopefully Burns will spend the rest of his life in the slammer.. Maybe his friends at the bar should have taken his keys or forced him to take a taxi..

    1. Sir if you have seen a report or have a link please where? We have searched every paper, accident reports and just cant find anything but this blog. Any info should have been released to family first before this report blog. It was written on 11th I think and I searched every day in papers. Yes SIr, Absolutely This photo with flames around humans that burned is beyond horrible. No matter what the outcome of investigation that is pure cruelty.. Would any parent want to see a photo with their child, who was burned, in a picture In flames? SS made a lot more poor comments on fb that are not on this blog, as in accusations that more people caring about building than Brittany on fb and that there has been a cover up. Nothing can be covered up when we have no knowledge of any reports or results. At leastt let our family grieve and bury our loved one before slinging mud in pathetic attempt for a scoop or minute of fame, whatever you call it. Families should come first.

    2. Shannon, our remarks stated that several individuals felt there might be a "cover up" since the TD did not mention the warrant for Mr. Burns' arrest or that alcohol was involved. Our take is that the TD article was just to convey the bare fact and that more news would come after Burns is officially arrested or indicted. Remember, if no one had feared a cover up they would have not have contacted us...nor would we have known any of the details and suggested a cover up ourselves.

    3. Sadly the Wayne County newspaper isn't online. You can drive up Chisholm Hwy to TN and most of the grocery stores have them for sale. They only come out on Wednesdays.

  13. This is sick! Please take this down! Really it is was your family would you want this one here. A picture of you burning?????? You must have a lot of class right? Grow up and STOP acting like a 8th grader. If you want to report something or wright something maybe you should get a real job! As a writer and get out of your parents house making fun of families when they need prayer and comfort the most! This is SICK!

  14. To the author: I am curious why you've continued to ignore the pleas of not only her family but general readers to remove that offensive picture. It is upsetting the family and offensive to the general public, and frankly it's in such bad taste that you should've known better prior to posting it.

    I have no personal connection to anyone involved here, but my goodness her own family members are begging you to remove that picture and you just ignore them...They all deserve better than that, especially from someone claiming to "fight for the abused" and for her family. That family has been through enough, they don't need THIS kind of "fighting" for them.

    Just show some class and take it down.

    1. Thank you!! You are right. So many that saw fb and this have said they dont kn. Them but begged her just to change picture. On fb she said she doesnt do art work and has no control over sensoring. It out yet she sensors everything on this blog.

    2. Mr. Fox, perhaps because the "pleas" were actually demands using vulgar language?

  15. So being told today that the Author did at one time work for a local newspaper.... maybe they were fired because of their Zero respect for others! So I am guess they said hey lets start up a webpage that we can talk trash and no one will know who you are! If the Author was truly a writer then maybe just maybe they would come out of the closet and say its me! so that all of the people that have been hurt by this website will be able to file legal action! You know they say nothing can stay secret for long! A real reporter will get the name and everyone in this small community will know who it is and they may be run out of town! I am going to pray for your soul tonight! Maybe you will get gain a clearer head about this! This whole page is wrong Shoalanda Speaks! GET A REAL JOB

  16. They are asking that you take the picture down, is this to hard to do? The picture has nothing to do with the story but show's how heartless a person you are! If this is how you get your kicks, well there's a special place in Hell for people like you! I'll pray that you, seems like you need it!

  18. Sholanda,

    Would you please remove the picture? Since you haven't been asked politely, I would like to ask you to please do this. My heart feels so sad for everyone. I have no connection either, but it would make me, a long-time reader, feel much better.
    Please, Sholanda....
