The women who were fatally injured in the wreck, which occurred on Saturday night at around 11:55 p.m., were Tyshyra Hines (pictured far right), 21; Ieshia Nelson (pictured far left), 21; Bernadette Harris (not pictured), 25; and Alicia Goston (not pictured), 22.

According to police investigators, the women died when their vehicle struck a support column (pictured below) of an elevated train line.  Witnesses state that the vehicle was traveling at a “high rate of speed” when it slammed into the column and literally split in two.

Three of the women died instantly at the scene of the tragic accident.  Nelson was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead at 12:48 a.m. on Mother’s Day.

Relatives of the victims state that the women had been out and about and en route to Goston’s grandmother’s 61st birthday celebration. Reportedly, the young Moms were not in the habit of going out and partying but were dedicated to their children, school, and work lives.

Harris, who worked as a home attendant for the elderly, had three children, ages 4, 6, and 8.  The father of Harris’ two youngest children was Hines’ brother.

 

Hines, who had been recently laid off as a counter clerk for a pizzeria was “a good person and easy to get along with according to her dad, Anthony, who spoke to the Chicago Tribune.

Goston was a single Mother to a 2-year-old daughter and worked at a book store.

Nelson also had a 2-year-old and was going to school to be a nurse’s assistant.  She was also studying radiology and her agenda was to become a success so that she could give her young son a great life.

The Chicago police department is investigating the wreck and plans on conducting a crash reconstruction in order to determine exactly how the accident occurred and at what speed the vehicle was going at the time it struck the column.
