NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A head-on collision Monday night in Robertson County killed two people and left a little girl fighting for her life.

3-year-old Wyncie Bouge was in the car with her mother, grandmother and three week old brother Monday night around 7:30 p.m. when the wreck occurred.

"They were at the area where Springfield turns into Greenbrier and a car coming in the opposite direction came over and collided with them head on," said Pastor Alec Cort.

The grandmother Janice Darlene Carlton, who was a passenger, died from injuries sustained during the wreck. The driver of the car that crossed the center line, Mandricus Darden, 27, also died.

Megan Bouge, 28, was driving. She, her daughter and three week old son Emmett were all taken to Vanderbilt Medical Center in Nashville.

The mother has gone through several surgeries for a torn diaphragm and two broken legs.

"Doctors are optimistic that she will with traction and therapy will be able to recover from that. In time, but it will take some time," said Cort.

Cort is the pastor at Bethel Baptist Church in Greenbrier where the Bouges have been members for the past two years.

He is very close to the family and has spent many hours since the wreck with the father, Brandon Bouge.

Cort's daughter is friends with Wyncie. The little girl has very serious head, neck and spinal injuries and Tuesday night was on life support at Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.

"So we are praying for a God give miracle, that God would step in and heal that little girl," Cort said.

The newborn was only slightly injured in the wreck.

"I just held him at Baptist a few weeks ago. Emmett has progressively shown improvement. They may be some head trauma there, but the doctors don't seem overly concerned" according to Cort.

Megan Bouge is scheduled to undergo one, possibly two more surgeries on Wednesday to repair broken bones.

A fund has been set up to help the family financially during this difficult time. You can make a donation to the Bouge Family Assistance Fund at Regions Bank branch.
