NASHVILLE, AR (KSLA) -
One of the two children injured in Thursday's accident that killed their uncle and aunt is still recovering in a Little Rock hospital.
Dadrick Franklin, 10, is listed in critical condition. His 8-year-old brother, Ladarious, was discharged from the hospital Friday afternoon.
Glen Johnson, 59, and his wife, 61-year-old Margaret, were pronounced dead at the accident scene.
The Johnson's car was traveling south on Hwy. 27 when a northbound vehicle hit the deer, knocking it into their car, which went out of control and into a building.
Now the family is trying to cope with the tragedy.
The Johnson's daughter, Yvonne Johnson, says, "I got down there to the scene, and I was looking for them, thinking that they were OK. When I got there, they were not OK. They told me that both of my parents had been killed instantly."
The Johnsons had just celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary. They were employed by the Mineral Spring, Arkansas School District.
"My parents loved me very much. I loved them, and we showed it in every way. I couldn't ask for a better set of parents," Johnson says.
The tragedy is considered a freak accident by Jeff Neal, an officer with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission.
But Neal adds that with cooler weather and deer hunting season, motorists will see an increase in the animal crossing area roadways.
"If you see these deer in the ditch way, slow down, please, because they are completely unpredictable. They can get startled. They can run your way. They can run back the other way," Neal says.
Meanwhile, a steady flow of friends visited the Johnson's Nashville, Arkansas home for support.
"If you have parents, please tell them that you love them. Treat them with respect because they can be here today and gone tomorrow," Johnson says.
