Worship Leader’s Family Hurt in Accident

17505955906_85c4c5629c_kHAMPSTEAD, N.C. – A South Carolina family’s life has been forever changed after a drive through North Carolina, and a church community is mourning.

Last Sunday, a South Carolina preacher and his family were driving down the North Carolina coast on the way home from a wedding just outside of Wilmington. A two-year-old boy was killed in the accident and a mother was injured.

The accident happened while Hadley Eddings, pregnant, was sitting at a red light. In the back seat was her two-year-old son. Eddings is the wife of Gentry Eddings, a Forest Hill Church worship leader. Gentry Eddings was driving a separate car and his parents were in another.

As the car was stopped, it was struck from behind by an 18 wheeler whose driver failed to stop. The crash occurred just after noon. As the 18 wheeler hit Eddings’ vehicle, she was pushed into her husband’s. His car was forced off of the road and overturned prior to coming to a stop in the median. Eddings’ parents’ car was also struck.

Hadley Eddings, 37 weeks pregnant, was immediately transported to New Hanover Regional Medical Center. Eddings underwent an emergency cesarean section. The infant is currently on life support and Eddings is listed in good condition. Doctors remain hopeful about the baby’s recovery and report that the baby is responsive to touch.

The driver of the truck has been charged with misdemeanor death by vehicle. Together with troopers, the district attorney’s office will complete an investigation and determine if additional charges are warranted. Troopers report that the crash caused the US 17 southbound lanes to be closed for approximately four hours.

Members of the Eddings’ church, friends, and family remain in mourning for the loss of one of their own. Funeral service information for the toddler has not been released.
