Suspected drunk driver kills pregnant woman, baby in fiery crash

A suspected drunk driver in Louisiana took the lives of a pregnant teen mother and her 7-month-old son on Christmas Eve — just hours after the 19-year-old woman had accepted her boyfriend’s marriage proposal.

State cops say Jillian Ramsay was fleeing the scene of an earlier crash when her vehicle struck a vehicle that contained young mom Shelly Mulkey and little Ryan McCollum Jr. Ramsay who was impaired, according to cops.

“That’s three lives she took from me,” Ryan McCollum Sr., who was with his fiancée and child, told The Advocate.

The Dodge Stratus driven by McCollum was traveling at a slow rate of speed in Tangipahoa Parish when Ramsay crashed her Nissan Altima into the back of his vehicle, according to state cops. Both vehicles would catch fire.

“It sounded almost like a bomb or something,” witness Kasey Craig told Fox 8. “The whole trailer shook. We came out here and there was these tire tracks right here and where you see that it was just fire. I ran into Hopping Harley’s to get a fire extinguisher and I tried to get the fire extinguisher to him as quick as I could. The firefighters they were doing their best but we just couldn’t get to them.”

Bystanders were able to pull McCollum Sr. and Mulkey from their vehicle as the Stratus became engulfed in flames, but the infant remained in the car.

Mulkey and the baby were pronounced dead at the scene. Ramsay was able to exit her vehicle and only suffered minor injuries.

Ryan McCollum Sr. had found out over the weekend that Mulkey was expecting another child, and decided to propose on Christmas Eve.

“I got a ring out and asked her to marry me. I got on one knee,” he told the Advocate.

Shelly Mulkey’s father told the newspaper that little Ryan was “the best baby you ever seen in the world.”

“I don’t care if he had a fever of 101,” Billy Mulkey told the Advocate. “If you look at him and smile, he’s going to start smiling and laughing and jumping around.”

Ramsay, 36, was charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, hit-and-run, and careless operation of a vehicle. The investigation is ongoing.

“That woman is going to have to live with that the rest of her life,” Billy Mulkey told the Advocate.
