Calhoun County, AL – In a show of unwavering solidarity and compassion, the local community has come together to support Shirley Millwood and her son Dakota following a harrowing accident on Highway 431. Dakota’s vehicle was rear-ended by a utility truck, causing his Jeep to erupt in flames. Both Dakota and his friend are currently undergoing intensive treatment at the ICU/Trauma Burn Unit at UAB.

Dakota has already undergone the first of what could be many surgeries, with another scheduled in the coming days to address his burns. Meanwhile, Shirley, Dakota’s devoted mother, remains close by but faces the challenge of being unable to stay overnight at the hospital.
