SARALAND, Ala. (WALA) - A Fruitdale mother is talking about her son who was killed in a crash in Saraland.
It happened on Oct. 14 on Kali Oka Road, just north of Lazy Buck Road.
Investigators tell us a car left the road, smashing into a tree.
The passenger, Zachary Williams, died.
The driver of that car, 19 year old Christopher Dylan Nelson has been charged with manslaughter.
Zachary’s mom says he was best friends with Nelson and they do not blame him for Zachary’s death.
“No matter how hard it is, no matter how much we're hurting, we got to have faith that this was god's plan,” said Anita Williams.
The family speaking to FOX10’s Tyler Fingert on the phone, as they remember the son killed in a single car crash last month.
“He was a sweet, caring loving child,” Anita said.
The impact so powerful a tree was knocked over.
“A great loss, a truly a great loss,” Anita said. “He was just a fine individual.”
Police said Nelson was driving and is now facing charges.
“For Dylan to know that he was driving the vehicle, he's got to live with that for the rest of his life and Zachary wouldn't want Dylan to go to prison,” Anita said.
A mother who lost her son does not want another life to be destroyed in pursuit of justice.
“Zachary loved Dylan and Dylan loved Zachary and we're all suffering,” Anita said. “We're all hurting and we have to start healing.”
Investigators say they're still waiting for the toxicology results.
Nelson is set to appear in court next Thursday.
