Crazy: Mother & Daughter Die In Separate Car Accidents Within 30 Minutes God works in mysterious ways, right?That might be the only explanation for this. A mother and young daughter both died on the same day in 2 separate car accidents 30 minutes apart. The accidents happened under 10 miles from each other.
DeKalb County Coroner Tom Wilson said the victims had been identified as 39-year-old Julie Yates Patterson and her 8-year-old daughter, Elizabeth “Libby” Patterson. The accidents occurred approximately 7 miles apart, Wilson said.“The mother’s car was involved in a head-on collision with another vehicle and then about a half hour later, the daughter was crossing the road when she was struck by a car,” Wilson told The Huffington Post.
Wilson said both crashes occurred on Alabama State Route 117, which is near the family’s Valley Head home. Valley Head is a small town located about 70 miles southeast of Huntsville.
Libby had recently celebrated her birthday, the Times Free Press reported, citing the girl’s family members. A school bus had reportedly dropped her off minutes before the accident. -(Huffington Post)
