A severe car accident in Talladega County, Alabama has left two people dead and five injured after a Friday night crash.

According to reports, the two-car accident occurred on State Highway 21, close to Sylacauga. Although investigators are still working on the cause of the accident, it appears as if both vehicles crashed into each other at around 11:00 p.m. The crash was so severe that all victims involved were either killed or seriously injured.

Filemon Reyes Santigo, 35, and Areli Jacinto, 23, both of Talladega, were killed upon impact. They were in the same vehicle, along with five additional victims, all children between the ages of 1 to 17.  All of the children were seriously injured and taken to the Children’s Hospital in Birmingham. The driver of the second vehicle, whose name has not been identified at this time, suffered injuries and was taken to a local Talladega hospital.

The car accident was so severe that both vehicles were smashed beyond repair. The Alabama State Troopers continue to investigate the crash.  As of now, alcohol and/or drugs does not appear to be a factor in the collision.  Anyone with any information should call their local police department.
