"...a survivor of the accident - a juvenile who's not being named - posted three images of Smith's body on social media just after the fatal crash occurred.

"A picture of his lifeless body was sent to my phone, before I ever found out what was going on. That's not how I wanted to find out. I couldn't sleep that night, that image will forever be burned into my mind," he said.

NPR puts some of those pieces together for their analysis.
