A tragic accident took place recently in Hinds County Mississippi. Two teenage brothers from Jackson, Mississippi were traveling South on I 55 in a Ford Taurus. Wet road conditions may have led to Preston Garrett, age 18, losing control of the vehicle. Brandon Woodard, age 15, was a passenger in the vehicle. The Ford Taurus crossed over the median and was hit by another vehicle heading North on I-55 according to the Hinds County Coroner’s Office. Both Brandon and Garrett died in the accident. Neither was wearing a seat belt but it is unclear from the facts reported whether a seatbelt would have made a difference as to the severity of the automobile accident related personal injuries.
It is certainly tragic for a family to lose one child as a result of an automobile accident. The family of Garrett and Brandon lost two children in one automobile accident. May the community and friends of this family provide them support and comfort in this trying time of loss and grief.
