EFFINGHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -
The family of three boys killed in the fiery tanker truck crash Thursday
afternoon in Effingham County is grieving.
The Mulligan, Hale and Hickox families are in shock that in an
instant they lost three young lives.
Their grandfather, Joe Hale, described 3-year-old Eli Hickox as a
precocious child, barely two weeks away from his fourth birthday. He wanted to
hunt and fish like his big brothers.
Sixteen year old Garret Mulligan went to Effingham High School and
was the quiet jokester.
Eighteen year old Wesley Mulligan was the big brother. He saved up
all his money to buy his pickup truck just two days before the crash.
His grandmother, Sue Hale, said this is all too surreal to
"It's really hard losing three at one time," she said. "And
especially this way. When you think about how it happened, it makes it doubly
bad. It's bad enough for it to happen, but the way it happened, with that truck
exploding, it's you don't know if they knew what was happening or if they
didn't know. No one can tell."
The family didn't need the Effingham County Sheriff's Office to
confirm the three brothers were killed in the crash.
Debra Napier, the victims' aunt, knew it was them as soon as she
heard the news of the accident.
"We knew when they said he was missing and we couldn't get a hold
of him on the cell phone, and we knew."
It's a tragedy she and her family may never understand.
Said Sue Hale, "It feels like a part of your heart is gone, and it
will never be replaced."
