In Cullman, the vehicle slammed into a car occupied with 77 year old Ellarea and her granddaughter Alyssa. They were on their way to work at Kentucky Fried Chicken in Cullman.

Ellarea was killed and Alyssa recieved 2 broken arms, a broken pelvis, broken leg, a brain bleed and small tear in an artery. She is in Huntsville Hospital in Critical but Stable condition.

The Dickson family is now faced with the emotional turmoil of the tragic loss and the ongoing recovery of Alyssa.
