Head-on crash kills two sisters in separate cars

Head-on crash kills two sisters in separate cars

SIX MILE, Ala. (AP) — Two sisters driving separate vehicles on a rural highway collided head-on, killing both women as they went to see each other.

State troopers identified the victims as Sheila Wentworth, 45, and her older sister, Doris Jean Hall, 51. Hall's husband, Billy Joe Hall Jr., 45, also was killed.

A child riding in each vehicle was injured.

Authorities said the women were driving Jeeps in opposite directions on Alabama 25 about 4 p.m. Sunday when one of the vehicles crossed the center line, colliding with the other vehicle.

Trooper Cpl. Stan Lemon said Monday investigators were trying to determine which car was on the wrong side of the road and why.

The wreck injured 8-year-old Amber Jackson, who was riding with the Halls, her maternal grandparents. Also hurt was Frankie Whaley, 12, a nephew of Wentworth, who was in her Jeep.

Amber was released from a hospital on Monday, but Frankie remained in special care at Children's Hospital, said trooper Sgt. Will Rogers.

Billie Walker, an elder sister of the women, said they grew up in Bibb County, where the accident occurred. "It was a great big poor family, but we had good memories," she said.

The double tragedy was not the first heartbreak for the families: The Halls lost their only daughter to cancer 15 months ago, and their trailer home burned about six months ago.

"They had been to visit their daughter's grave, and when they got near home, Doris smelled smoke, and their home was burned up," said Walker, of Montevallo. "And Billy Joe, he wasn't just a brother-in-law. I loved him like a brother."

The Wentworth funeral was set for 10 a.m. Wednesday in Centreville. The Hall funeral was scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday in Montevallo.

May they rest in peace. What are the odds of that happening.
