ST. LANDRY PARISH, La. (KTVE/KARD) – A fatal accident over the weekend left four people dead including three siblings.
Louisiana state police say three siblings were killed by a wrong way driver in a head-on collision on I-49 on their way home from a basketball game in Monroe.
“We’re all brand new to this and just trying our best to figure out the best way to go about it.” Says older brother of the victims, Shea Simmons.
For Simmons, this accident serves as a reminder to enjoy every second of life. “You just never know when someone’s last time is, so you know just trying to remember that life is precious. We really never know when it’s our time and to just try to not take things for granted.”
20 year old Lindy, 17 year old Christopher, and 15-year-old Kamryn Simmons died after a driver who is suspected to be intoxicated at the time, was driving north in the southbound lane and hit the family’s car head on.
In addition to the three siblings, their mother Dawn, and Christopher’s girlfriend Marissa were also in the car.
As of Monday, the mother remains in the ICU in critical condition at a hospital in Lafayette, and Marissa has reports of broken bones and a bruised body.
A GoFundMe has been established to help the family.
