BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Authorities have confirmed that both suspects in the triple fatal accident that killed a family of three are in custody Tuesday evening. A third suspect that allegedly helped one of the other suspects hide is also in custody.

Law enforcement officials believe that these two men drove through a red light Monday evening at the intersection of Birmingport Road and Minor Parkway, colliding with another car.

Three people, identified as Nicole Verus, 23, Ryan Max Culwell, 20, and their 10-month-old daughter Rogue Marie Culwell, were in the car that was hit. All three are from Hanceville.

After the collision, witnesses on the scene told FOX6 News that the suspects fled from their white SUV on foot. Authorities began a search for the two men Monday evening and that search continued through Tuesday afternoon at a home in the Ensley community.

Around 5 p.m. Tuesday, multiple law enforcement officers converged on a home located near 42nd Street Ensley and Avenue O. A little more than an hour later, officers removed two men from the home.

Birmingham Police Sgt. Johnny Williams told FOX6 News reporter Sherea Harris that one of the men was a suspect in the triple fatal collision Monday. Police allege that the second man was helping the suspect elude authorities. Harris tells us that the suspect will be taken to Cooper Green for unspecified injuries.

Across town at Cooper Green, FOX6 News reporter Karen Church shared that a source within the Jefferson County Sheriff's Department confirmed to her that the second suspect in Monday's collision had turned himself in and was being treated at the hospital for unknown injuries. Chief Deputy Randy Christian has confirmed by email that "both [suspects are] now in custody."

Law enforcement have not yet released additional information on the two suspects or the person who allegedly helped hide one of them.
