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.
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.”
