In Mobile County, Alabama two Tennessee women were instantly killed in a head-on collision. One of the drivers was Mary Robinson who was 64-years-old. The other driver was 26-year-old Amanda Murley. The deadly crash took place on Highway 45, just north of Eight Mile.
At the moment what exactly caused the crash is still being investigated by state troopers.
However Murley was not driving alone. In the car with Murley was Murley's fiance, her 2-year-old son and her 2-year-old nephew.
The happy family were on their way home to Tennessee after enjoying an extended vacation in Destin, Florida.
The second the two cars collided, Murley's vehicle immediately became engulfed in flames. Although Murley died instantly on impact, both of the toddlers became frantic as they were still strapped in the back seat.
James Ladnier is an Army veteran and a local volunteer firefighter who witnessed the scene. Ladnier immediately pulled over into order to help the two toddlers still trapped inside the burning vehicle.
Many other witnesses also stopped and got out to help.
“It was very frantic for the most part,” said Ladnier. “Everybody was running around trying to help in some way, shape or form.”
Luckily Ladnier was able to get both of the toddlers out of the car before the inside of the car became completely engulfed in flames.
Ladnier's mother and wife who were also on the scene did everything they could to help the victims. They brought the passengers cold towels and water.
Murley's fiance as well as the two toddlers are currently in the hospital. Their families anxiously await their surgery results
Ladnier sadly shared,
"I can't imagine the pain the family is going through right now”.
Murley is remembered as a kind-hearted and smart person who absolutely adored her family.
State troopers have still not reported any possible cause of the crash.
