Tanysia Middlebrooks was eight months pregnant when she was traveling from Georgia to Alabama to visit a school with her unborn child’s father. Tragically, she was killed by a semi-truck driver. Officials in Alabama have yet to charge the driver in her death.

Her mother, Sherrika Allen, told WBRC in Alabama that her daughter was expecting a boy and planned to name him Aanai Kaier. Allen said her daughter was a joyful and confident woman.

According to Alabama State Troopers, the deadly car crash occurred on January 26 around 6 a.m. on U.S. 431, north of Anniston, Alabama. A preliminary report revealed that Tanysia had exited her vehicle after being involved in a previous crash. A semi-truck hit her, pushing her and resulting in the untimely deaths of both her and her unborn child.

The parents of Tanysia are seeking more clarity from authorities about the circumstances surrounding their daughter’s death.

Tanysia’s father, Tvares Middlebrooks, says he is familiar with driving semi-trucks and stated that the driver of the semi was not paying attention.

“For me, I drive tractor-trailers. How I feel is that he wasn’t paying attention. You can see further down the road than someone in a regular vehicle. There shouldn’t have been no reason he couldn’t see ahead of him,” he said.

The driver of the semi-truck, a 57-year-old man whose name Alabama State Troopers are refusing to release, has not been charged in Tanysia’s death.
