New details in wreck that killed two toddlers

Posted by: John Shryock - bio | email

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Alabama State Troopers released new details Monday into last Friday's wreck which claimed the lives of two toddlers.

An official investigation found that the children's mother, 26-year-old Andrea Bell, was trying to pass the vehicle in front of her as she traveled down Alabama Highway 110 near the Bullock/Montgomery County line.

Troopers say falling snow was causing blinding snow conditions and that's why Bell was attempting to pass the vehicle. As she crossed into the other lane, she noticed another oncoming car.

In an attempt to avoid a collision, Bell tried to get back in her lane. She lost control of her brown Chevrolet Suburban and left the roadway before slamming into a pond just off the highway.

Bell was able to get out of the vehicle, and suffered only minor injuries. Her two children, Antonio Jamal Bell, 2, and Jacoby Amir Bell, 4, were still inside when the SUV sank moments later.

Divers recovered the SUV and both children's bodies within an hour of the crash.

No charges are expected in this case.
