BREAKING News Out Of South Carolina- Multiple Dead… Here’s What We Know


A Florida mom and her two children were on their way to spend the weekend Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, but things didn’t go as planned.

While driving to their vacation spot their vehicle hit a 9-foot alligator crossing a highway, authorities said.

The family’s car ran off the side of the road, slammed into a tree and caught fire, killing all three inside. Stanley and her two children died from thermal injuries, Fox News reports.

Amber Stanley, 24, and her kids, Jack, 4, and Autumn, 2, were driving down Interstate 95, near the Interstate 26 exit, just before 1 a.m. Monday when Stanley’s vehicle struck the alligator, said Sean D. Fogle, the Chief Deputy Coroner with the Orangeburg County Coroner’s Office.

Stanley’s husband, Josh Stanley, told FOX30 he was in Pennsylvania for work when his wife and children died. The trio had decided to go for a weekend trip at the time of their death.

“It’s been hard. I mean, I know it happened. I’m still kind of processing though,” the devastated husband said. “I’ll be walking around and I’ll just, like, see something out of the corner of my eye, I go, ‘that’s Amber,’ and I know it’s not, but it’s just the first thing my brain goes to. Or, some kids say ‘dad’ or something.”

The Stanleys were from Callahan, Fla., a town northwest of Jacksonville. Josh Stanley said his wife loved visiting the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens and he’d like to arrange a memorial there for his wife and kids.

South Carolina Highway Patrol said it’s investigating the crash, The State reported.

Josh: “I’ll hear some kid say ‘dad’ or something, and I’ll turn around and it’s not Jack or Autumn, but for a split second it’s just like, sort of like my brain expects them to be there…It has just been really hard.”

Man, i mean what can I say?

Josh, my brother just hang in there brother.

Take comfort that your beautiful family is now in Heaven.

Rest in peace.
