Tractor-trailer accident kills mother and two daughters
Posted on August 28th, 2009 by Zane Cagle
A fiery head-on collision with a tractor-trailer this past Tuesday took the lives of a woman and her two daughters, ages 4 years and 12 weeks. Witnesses who saw the tragic accident reported seeing the woman’s car cross the center line of a two lane highway, right into the path of an oncoming tractor-trailer. The car then burst into flames, sending bystanders running for fire extinguishers. Once the flames were put out, a witness who stopped to help told reporters he cracked the back window to let the smoke out of the vehicle. That was when he and the police saw the two girls in the back seat. The witness’s wife, a registered nurse, began giving the baby chest compressions, but unfortunately the infant and girl sustained fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the hospital. Police are still investigating the accident, and no charges have been filed.
