Callahan mom, 2 kids die after auto hits alligator on I-95

A Florida mother and her two children died in an accident after their vehicle hit a 9-foot alligator crossing a highway, according to Fox News. Their auto then veered off the road, crashed into a tree and burst into flames.

Stanley, her 4-year-old son, and 2-year-old daughter, all of Callahan, Fla., died as a result of burns, the Orangeburg County Coroner's Office tells the State.

The Florida family's 2011 Kia Soul burst into flames after the force of the impact with the alligator sent it careering into a tree by the highway.

The woman's husband, Josh Stanley, had traveled out of state for a work trip when the crash happened, WJAX-TV reported. Amber Stanley along with also her children were killed Monday when their auto hit an alligator.

The last time I talked to my kids is when I was leaving. I hugged them and I said I loved them and I'd see them in a week - and I was going to miss them'.

According to Action News Jax in Jacksonville, FL, Josh Stanley, now the sole survivor of his family, said he was working out of town as his wife and two children traveled through SC.

Amber Stanley was driving when her auto hit on an alligator, inducing the vehicle to go off the trail. "I'm still kind of processing though", the husband said.

'Everybody keeps saying "if you need anything, let me know". "But it's the first thing my brain goes to".
