i was heading back to Gilmer from Morganton and was stopped at the light in the aftermath. It was awful. there were huge chunks of glass everywhere and three ambulances. it looked like there were several cars involved. this is the third wreck i saw today on 515 in Blue Ridge.please take extra caution ecspecially this weekend and pray that they will be alright

Dont know, I was coming home from Jasper when I saw it. Hope everyone is ok but I will say this...I dont see how someone could survive what I saw.

We were at piedmont hospital in Jasper and Fannin, Gilmer, and Pickens were bringing ppl to the ER there.

Be safe everyone!

It was a 16 yr old drunk driver that caused this wreck and it killed a 2 yr old and another small child and there were 6 other people including small children they flew out and it was really bad

OMG- I think this was the accident that my wife's sister's family was in this morning at 12:30am. They were returning from fireworks and had 4 kids under 10 in a Honda Van. My 6 year old God daughter did not make it.
If this was truly a drunk driving accident, i really feel for that 16 year old kid because we have a huge family and this is NOT going to settle well.
Do we know if the 16 year old survived the accident?

yes the 16 year old kid survived, but a 2 year old girl also died.

Our 2 year old boy that flew out of the vehicle is in critical condition and may have serious head damage. The two older girls suffered multiple broken bones and are in surgery. The pregnant mother and embedded baby and father are ok.
This is a terrible tragedy but it hurts so much more knowing it was a drunk driver. Jesus people, whats wrong with you?
So sorry

I am so very sorry and I hope that the girls are ok. Many of us in this county saw this and heard about it and our hearts break for your family. Please keep us updated and let us know what needs/can be done

16 year old should be tried as an adult for manslaughter. Kept in jail for many years, and never allowed to drive again

So there were 2 deaths, am I right? i have heard conflicting reports that father and kid died...My heart goes out to the whole family. It makes me sick to know that a drunk KID did this. I am hoping that the 16yr old gets tried as an adult in this. Kind of sad that in this town you have to watch for the locals driving not the vacationers.
So sorry

What does that have to do with anything. He shouldn't be drinking at 16 to start with. He deserves the harshest punishment the law allows.

I have to agree with this.... after all.... yes i do remeber when i was 16... and though i was dumb enough to drink at 16... i wasnt dumb enough to get behind the wheel while intoxicated... he wanted to be adult enough to drink and drive... adult crime adult time... yes i do feel sorry for him... his life is shot mentally and literally before actually becoming an adult...but not punishing him is telling all our teenagers "hey its ok to get drunk and go driving, we cant get in that much trouble".... i think not

Our entire community is so heartbroken for these families, and the family of the teen driver. They lost a child to cancer, so they do understand the incredible loss the parents of these children are feeling. We will all be praying for the families, and the injured children. So absolutely tragic.
