ST. CLAIR COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Authorities have finally, formally, identified a mother and daughter killed in a wreck on I-59 on Monday night.

St. Clair County coroner Dennis Russell identified the two as 54-year-old Beverly Oglesbey of Rainbow City and her daughter, 22-year-old Kayla Jo Oglesbey.

The two died in a fiery two-car collision at the Double Bridges Rd. overpass near the Steele exit around 7:15 p.m. Monday. They weren't formally identified until Friday, after forensics investigators obtained their dental records.

By Wednesday, Kayla Oglesbey's co-workers at the Gridiron Sports Bar and Grill in downtown Gadsden had already put up wreaths in her honor, as well as a sign on the restaurant saying they wouldn't forget her. Kayla was working there as a server. Her co-workers say she was attending class at Gadsden State Community College to be an Emergency Medical Tech.

Her co-workers rememebered Kayla as someone who loved her boyfriend andalways had a smile and words of encouragement for those around her.

"Anytime I had anything wrong, she'd text a hundred times a day, justcalling me, just trying to figure out, you know, are you OK. Just the mostcaring person I've ever met in my life," co-worker and friend MalloryMorgan said.
