A 17-Year-Old Girl and a 15-Year-Old Boy Die in a Car Crash
Earlier this year, a 17-year-old girl and a 15-year-old boy died in a single-vehicle crash in Levy County. This tragedy was not unconnected to a car crash that claimed the lives of Cole Kearby and his mother, Gerald Kearby, in 1979.
Two young brothers were killed instantly
Those were the words of a mother, Leontyne Walker, who lost two sons in a car crash. The boys were in their grandmother’s car when it crashed. They were trapped inside and died.
The car was engulfed in flames. The family was on a road east of Kansas City. A GoFundMe campaign has been established to help pay for funeral costs.
The boys, Odin Ratliff and Hunter Jackson, were three years old. Their mother, Tammy, was inside when the wreck occurred. She was unable to get to them. Her youngest son witnessed the first responders perform CPR on his brother. She also lost her other son.
A GoFundMe campaign has been started to help pay for the funeral costs of the boys. They had been best friends.
William Trimble and his 15-year-old brother, Alex
Upon looking at the news headlines, two eminently worthy victims were dragged from their respective beds at the Athens Regional Medical Center. The accident, which took place along Highway 11, occurred at about 10 pm on the night before the big game. The two teens were passengers in a 2006 Toyota Corolla. They were less than a quarter mile from their homes when the crash occurred. In an attempt to save lives, the drivers swerved to the side of the road. The vehicle was then hit by a Freightliner truck. The car was then flipped several times, resulting in its demise.
A few weeks ago, William and Alex were members of Jefferson High School’s marching band. The brothers were a fixture in the band’s snare drums. Both young men were also members of the school’s jazz band.
