    ‘Miracle baby’ takes first steps after surviving double-fatal crash

    Published: Sunday, December 10, 2017 @ 11:17 PM

    'Miracle baby' survives double-fatal crash

    A 14-month-old, the lone survivor of a crash that killed two family members, escaped the wreckage with only a few scrapes.

    The baby, Harlyn, was in her car seat when a pickup truck went off State Route 380, flipped, and slammed into a tree on a local campground. Her grandfather, 49-year-old Carl Perry and great grandmother, 73-year-old Linda Davis, were killed.

    Not only did Harlyn escape with only a few scratches, her family said after getting home from the hospital Saturday night, she walked for the first time.

    “Thankful doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel,” said Trey Culp, Harlyn’s father.

    Lynn Perry, whose husband and mother were killed in the crash, said Harlyn is a “miracle baby.”

    The family is now seeking answers after two members of their family were killed.

    “They were both great people and they shouldn’t have been taken out of the world like this,” Kia Coates said.
