Car accident:

According to the Tuscaloosa Police Department, a two-vehicle collision early on Saturday morning at the crossroads of Skyland Boulevard East and Interstate 20/59 resulted in the deaths of two local youths and the injuries of two more.

According to TPD spokesperson Stephanie Taylor, police were called at 1:50 in the morning about a collision involving a 2022 Tesla and a lorry that pinned the vehicle beneath the trailer and trapped the four passengers inside.

Even though the victims’ names were not released by the authorities, several social media posts from the victims’ friends and relatives indicated that the accident occurred the morning after prom at Bryant High School.

The post identified the driver as Bryant High School student Madison Sims, 17, and the front-seat passenger as Uniontown resident Samuel Brown, 18. At the scene, both were declared dead.

According to Brown’s Facebook profile, he played basketball and football when a senior at R.C. Hatch High School. He released his senior pictures in January and shared his enthusiasm for graduation.

Another 17-year-old female from Marion was transferred to DCH Regional Medical Centre with minor injuries and is claimed to be in excellent condition as of Saturday morning, according to Taylor, who added that an 18-year-old female from Montgomery was also sent to UAB Hospital in Birmingham with life-threatening injuries.

Investigations continue on what caused the collision.

One of the worst things anyone can go through in life is losing a loved one. Any journey must have a destination at the end. The person’s time on earth has regrettably come to an end now that they have died.

We wish them eternal peace and send our thoughts and prayers to their loved ones, family, friends.
