According to a media representative with Vanderbilt Medical Center 3 year old Wynce Bouge passed away late Saturday afternoon. This story has touched many lives all across middle Tennessee. It can be difficult to understand how you can so quickly go from where they were just minutes before the accident to where they are now. The outpouring support and love from the community has been unprecedented.
Last Monday January 28 the Bouge family was in a tragic auto accident that took the life of Wyncie’s grandmother Janice Darlene Carlton within hours. Wyncie held on until yesterday. Two other occupants in the car; Wyncie’s Mother Megan and baby brother Emmitt are recovering at Vanderbilt Medical. For reasons not yet understood, a driver heading the opposite direction on 41S in Springfield crossed over 4 lanes to impact the vehicle carrying the Bouge family head-on. The driver of the other vehicle; Mandricus Darden also died the same day.
As soon as funeral arrangements are made available we will provide them to you. If you would like to help the family financially during this difficult time, you can make a donation to the Bouge Family Assistance Fund at any branch of Regions Bank.
