DICKSON, Tenn. - State police said criminal charges are pending against a Franklin woman for causing an accident that killed two people.

The accident happened over the weekend in Dickson County, and one of the victims is the woman's 4-year-old son. Five children and two adults were in the car.

The police report said not a single child was properly restrained in the car.

One child died, and the other four are in critical condition.

The woman's boyfriend is also dead, and police said she caused the accident.

"I never thought this would happen to my son," said Thelma Harrison.

Hugs and consoling words just aren't enough for Brian Harrison's family in Franklin.

The 24-year-old was killed Saturday night in an automobile accident in Dickson County.

"I don't know what I'm going to do without my nephew.  He was everything to me," Harrison said.

The accident happened at the intersection of Abiff Road and Highway 46.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol said Harrison was a passenger in a car that ran a stop sign and crashed into the side of tractor trailer.

Police said 22-year-old Crystal Snow was the driver of that car. She had seven passengers including Harrison and her five children. Her 4-year-old child Quay Miller was also killed.

Snow and her four other children were critically injured and taken to Vanderbilt.

Police said they were not properly restrained in the car.

Harrison's mother calls Snow irresponsible.

"I told him time after time to stay away from her, but he wouldn't listen," she said. "I never thought she would do this, so she took my son away from me."

"I can't sit here and say I didn't cry because I cried today and I cried yesterday, too. That was my brother and I love him," said Justin Harrison.

Police don't know why Snow ran the stop sign. The THP requested alcohol and drug tests be taken at the hospital.

The results have not been released.

The driver of the tractor trailer and his passenger were not hurt in the crash.
