Man charged in crash that killed his wife, son


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Birmingham police have charged a 21-year-old man with two counts of manslaughter in a one-car accident that killed his wife and their son.

WBMA-TV ( ) reports Brandon Levoy Smith is being held in the Jefferson County Jail on $30,000 bond. Officials say speed was a factor in a Sunday afternoon accident on Jefferson Avenue that killed 21-year-old Kayla Nicole Jackson and their son Zion Milik Jackson.

Television footage of the accident shows the truck Davis was driving plowed through an overpass barrier and nearly slid over the Jefferson Avenue Bridge.

Authorities say the woman was pronounced dead on the scene and their son later died at a local hospital.

It is unclear if Davis has a lawyer.
