2 Alabama Teenagers Die in Post-Prom Car Accident

After attending a high school prom together in Alabama, a couple of teenagers lost their lives in a car accident over the weekend.

According to AL.com, a car accident in Tuscaloosa around 1:50 a.m. on Saturday left 17-year-old Madison Sims and 18-year-old Samuel Brown dead after the 2022 Tesla they were traveling in collided with a semi-truck near Interstate 20/59 and Skyland Boulevard East.

The Tesla was pinned underneath the truck’s trailer, and the four passengers in the car were trapped. Sims was driving, while Brown occupied the front seat. They were pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The two other passengers in the vehicle survived with injuries.

Brown attended R.C. Hatch High School in Uniontown in Perry County, where he played on the football team. “To say we will miss him would be an understatement,” Hatch High School posted on its Facebook page.

Sims attended Bryant High School in Cottondale and was an athlete and member of the track team.

“We extend our most sincere condolences to the Brown and Sims family,” the Perry County School District post read. “We ask that you please keep everyone in your thoughts and prayers as we navigate the days ahead together.”

One of the unidentified passengers was an 18-year-old female from Montgomery. She was taken to The University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital with serious injuries. The other victim, a 17-year-old female from Marion, was transported to Druid City Hospital Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa with minor injuries. She was listed in good condition.
