A two-car accident on Highway 69 South Saturday claimed the lives of three adults and the unborn child of one of the victims.
According to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA), Tristan Stormy Lane Black, 22, of Lynn was killed when the 2005 Honda Element he was operating was struck by a 2010 Cadillac CTS operated by Kristi L. Cordes, 37, of Hanceville. Cordes’ vehicle crossed the center line and collided with Black’s vehicle fatally injuring Brookelynne Alexus Dowdy, 20, of Double Springs, Bailey Dewayne Bennett, 20, of Haleyville, and injuring one juvenile, all occupants of the 2005 Honda Element.
Dowdy and Bennett's unborn daughter, Madelyn Bennett, also died in the accident.
Dowdy, Bennett and Black were pronounced dead at the scene. Cordes and the juvenile were transported for treatment by helicopter. The crash occurred on Alabama 69 near Alabama 91, approximately five miles southwest of Bremen at the 221 mile marker.
No further information is available at this time as Troopers with ALEA Highway Patrol Division continue to investigate.
A couple of GoFundMe accounts have been set up to help cover the cost of funeral expenses.
