Rescuers who attended a fatal head-on crash discovered the two drivers were father and son.
Jeffrey Brasher, 50, and Austin Brasher, 22, died in Fayette County Alabama early on Saturday morning (local time) when Jeffrey's Ford pickup collided with his son's Chevrolet pickup.
Alabama state troopers told local news outlet Al.com that alcohol was a factor in the crash, and that neither victim was wearing a seatbelt.
Relatives of Jeffrey and Austin took to Facebook to share their disbelief at the family tragedy.
"Can this all be just a dream?" said Jennifer Brasher.
"I know y'all will forever be my guardian angels now.. I miss y'all so much already," she said in a second post.
