Having a child is a big milestone in life for most people. Once you become a parent, you have the task of taking care of another life, in addition to your own.
This Texas couple was completely in love with their baby. They were excited to see their little bundle of joy grow, but little did they know that tragedy was just around the corner…
Alaina married Brandon Majors on April 24, 2021. The two were excited for the start of a new chapter in their lives as husband and wife. Her family and friends were equally enthusiastic about their union.
A few months after her marriage, Alaina gave birth to her beautiful little daughter Ellianna Majors. The couple fell in love with her daughter the moment her eyes fell on her.
The proud parents had no qualms about sharing photos of her daughter on social media in various poses and in the midst of various activities. Her friends and family also loved seeing regular updates from the adorable little girl.
On what seemed like any other day, Alaina went out with her daughter. It was October 4, 2022, around 11:20 a.m. m. when she was standing by the mailbox with her little girl.
Shortly thereafter, Henderson County authorities received news of an accident in the same area where the couple lived with her daughter.
It turned out that the mother and daughter had been in the accident. Nathan Simmonds, 25, was driving a 2017 Chevrolet Silverado, speeding up a hill, when the mother and daughter pulled up in front of his car and struck them.
Unfortunately, Ellianna passed away immediately and Alaina was rushed to a hospital so her injuries could be treated.
Michael Englehardt, who identified himself as Alaina’s uncle, said: “This was a senseless accident that could have been avoided if the driver had not been speeding down the hill.”
He didn’t want to believe the accusations that it was Alaina who had stood in front of the vehicle. He talked about how the curve near where Alaina lived had been dangerous and she was responsible for the accident.
An official investigation is currently underway to determine the facts of this case. Hopefully more light will be shed on the exact circumstances of this accident and more answers provided to the family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family during this difficult time, it is never easy to lose someone, especially a child. May little Ellianna Majors rest in peace.
