Family Of Burned Accident Victim's Troubles Continue as Mother Dies Suddenly: Friends Request Help For Expenses
Darren Doyle, story:
The family of James Allman, one of the victims in last Monday's car crash, has suffered another loss as Allman's ex-wife and mother of his three children has died unexpectedly from a heart attack, brought on by an asthma attack, according to close family friend, Laura Stewart, of Jasonville, Indiana.
Mrs. Stewart contacted the Edmonson Voice and shared the family's heartbreaking story. According to Mrs. Stewart, Anita Allman, (48) of Plainfield, IN drove to Tennessee to be with her children, Nicholas Allman (20), Willie Allman (20), and Destanee Allman (17) who were at the side of their father, James.
Stewart also said that Mr. Allman had undergone two different surgeries as a result of more than 50% of his body suffering from third degree burns, some she said went to the bone.
Mrs. Allman apparently suffered the attack as a result of the stress she suffered as she went to be with her children and died suddenly on Thursday, June 29, 2017.
"Not only are the children having to deal with their father suffering from the crash and all the medical bills that go with that, they now have to deal with planning their mother's funeral and those expenses," Stewart said. "They desperately need help."
She said Mr. Allman was induced into a coma and he had been waking slowly under medical supervision.
A GoFundMe page has been set up in the family's name to help with expenses through this difficult time. To donate to their account, click here:

"The family would appreciate any help during this time. This has been an awful 24 hours," Mrs. Stewart said.
